Take A Dip!
Our top LA pool picks for summer
Summer is officially upon us! That means we need to find as many options as possible to spend time submerged in water. While everyone else fights the crowds and fumbles with umbrellas at the beach, we prefer to be waited on poolside! From Downtown to the Weho, we’re sharing our fave pools to splash around in this summer!
SLS Beverly Hills Hotel
465 S. La Cienega Blvd., Beverly Grove, 310-247-0400
Looking for a pool with a view? Then this is the watering hole for you! With some of the best views in Bev Hills, you can spend all day at this cool pool without getting bored. Just make sure you lather on the SPF, a sunburn would totally clash with the relaxing vibe. When you need a snack or a sweet libation, the Altitude Pool Deck is open for breakfast and lunch and offers delicious cocktails to cure your cravings.
1819 Ocean Ave., Santa Monica, CA 90401, 310-260-7500
Heading to the beach to go to a pool seems like a waste. Unless it’s this swanky swim station! This pool provides digs fit for the rich and famous. With cabanas that are filled with comfy and classic furniture to crisp white chairs to soak up a tan in, you’ll feel like you’re sunning at a million dollar mansion! Sip on one of their 100% organic cold pressed juices and you’ll leave this pool ready to grace the A-list.
The London West Hollywood
1020 N. San Vicente Blvd., West Hollywood, 866-282-4560
If you feel the need to escape the city but can’t actually leave then pop on over to this Weho rooftop hotspot. Rent one of their on site cabanas and enjoy a Pool Concierge all your own! If you prefer your pool party to be poppin’, head over to their ‘Wednesday on Sunset’ soiree offering up poolside DJs, apps and drinks. What better way to celebrate summer?
The Standard Downtown
550 S. Flower St. Downtown, 213-892,8080,
Comb through the traffic on the 405 and you’ll find yourself at this trendy downtown oasis. Featuring a heated pool, nightly DJs, a poolside dance floor, outdoor fireplaces and panoramic views of downtown LA, this rooftop pool is perfect for your summer social events.
Beverly Hills Hotel
9641 Sunset Blvd., Beverly Hills, 310-887-2887
Known as the “Pink Palace”, this pool is about as classic Hollywood as it gets. If you want to get some serious R&R while being waited on hand and foot — think sunglass cleaning and frozen towels — then you’ll be in heaven at the largest pool in Los Angeles. Take a dip and listen to old Hollywood movie soundtracks (though) through underwater speakers, then soak up the sun in their striped lounge chairs. We can promise a fab time, we can’t promise the paparazzi won’t try to snap your pic!
