We’re excited to announce the opening of our newest bar and gaming area! Designed by the renowned Wimberley Interiors, considered one of the world’s leading design consultants in the hospitality industry, L Bar welcomes you with a striking lighting installation of 2,735 colorful crystal diamonds. Unwind in L Bar’s plush lounges, cozy corners and sleek bar stools. The elevated space features opulent tones, modern textures and luxe lighting, creating an ethereal, futuristic feel. The diamond motif then repeats in the luscious velvet upholstered wall panels and gold-studded tufting of the custom sofas.
The subdued lighting and rich color palette of deep maroon, silver and gold create an intimate atmosphere that is stylish and timeless like the best music salons of the Golden Era of Hollywood. L Bar also includes a stage as home to a regular rotating roster of live music entertainment from Fridays to Sundays.
Located between the two hotel towers, it has something for everyone; offering a combination of classic favorites; trendy aspirational concoctions; over 30 different selections of bourbon; as well as local and imported beer, wine, and champagne.
L Bar offers the finest handcrafted cocktails using fresh, seasonal produce, house-made syrups and inventive techniques for a menu that’s progressive yet nostalgic and ever-evolving.
Signature cocktails take center stage ‘L-evating the classics’ with offerings including the Cucumber Smash (cucumber vodka, macerated fruit, ginger beer and lime), the Blueberry Margarita (silver tequila, blueberry liqueur, pineapple juice and lime) and the Penicillin (Scotch whisky, Islay mist, ginger honey syrup and lemon juice).
