And if your plans happen to include a fun trip or two, can point you in the right direction. From coast to coast, these are three of the coolest must-see restaurants, bars, and clubs lighting up their local scenes. Read on for our top recommendations
E.P. & L.P. in West Hollywood
Los Angeles is blessed with (nearly) perfect weather all year round, so if you happen to be in the City of Angels, stop by the L.P. Rooftop Bar and enjoy those above average temps. The West Hollywood eatery boasts spectacular views spanning from the Hollywood Hills to the city center, and fiery Asian cuisine from chef Louis Tikaram. They also have a menu of delicious cocktails, and a stellar selection of music (thanks in part to investor Axwell of Swedish House Mafia), that changes weekly.
Stop in for a light bite and drinks with your best friends, and stay for the killer sunset views and groovy tunes.
Trattoria Mercatto in Toronto
If you’re looking for great cocktails and delicious fare in a laid-back, industrial vibe, Trattoria Mercatto in Toronto has just what you need. The cool, rustic decor and amber lighting gives off a vintage speakeasy vibe, making it the ideal spot for a classy late night bite after the bars, or a casual mid-week date. Try out their signature pizza and pastas that are sure to have you coming back for seconds.
