LA Weekly's Description

Wrapped around a glowing swimming pool that turns every vantage into a David Hockney painting, Blue Velvet is a hyperdesigned lounge fitted into the ground floor of a former Holiday Inn, with the cool blues of Staples Center and the financial-district skyscrapers just beyond. Some of the herbs and vegetables are harvested from an organic rooftop garden. From a spot by the window, downtown is as glamorous as the view from a penthouse in a Fred Astaire picture. It is doubtful, though, that Astaire ever dined on such eclectic fare. See full review.

    The black cod and oven roasted chicken are the best!

    Nice atmosphere! Great appetizers! Perfect for group party events. Cool mix of people. Home of many "Honey Collective" (Party Promoter) Events. Great all year round. Best during warm summer nights, to take advantage of the outside portion of restaurant.

    Wells $11. Aspires to be like the Standard. Not quite. DJ is ok. Valet.
