Ah... the Veranda Bar. It's a breath of fresh air from the bustle of downtown. The outdoor area is surrounded with lush plants. As you lounge in a chair by the pool and sip on a crisp, cold cocktail (which they make decently strong), you're instantly relaxed. An eclectic mix of people are there to do the same thing - unwind. Close to USC, the classy Veranda Bar is frequented by students, businessmen, young couples and tourists alike. Its a great place to sit on a warm summer night and make good conversation with friends.
