The Penthouse at the Huntley Hotel | Santa Monica | American, New American, Bars and Clubs | Restaurant
Loading...
One of Santa Monica's highest-flying bars, Penthouse at the Huntley Hotel is awash in white, appointed with dainty chandeliers and divvied up (by gauzy curtains) into indoor cabanas. Each of them provides an ideal perch from which to watch the sun slink slowly behind the Palisades. Hoteliers have even installed an express elevator (with a stunning ocean view of its own) that zips past prole floors 1 to 17 to deposit patrons directly at one of the Penthouse's leather couches. Prices are surprisingly affordable, which makes stopping by for a twilight drink an absolute no-brainer.
