Pop into the Windows Lounge at the Four Seasons Los Angeles for a cocktail and you might run into Mick Jagger, Kate Hudson or Peter Dinklage. This swank Beverly Hills hotel is where many celebrities stay when they're in town — particularly during Emmy, Golden Globe or Oscar week — and naturally, once they've checked in, they head to the bar. Starting at 4 p.m., Windows also offers tasty food on its appetizer menu, such as the Korean shortrib quesadilla and the crispy sushi rice, as well as burgers, fish and chips, pizza and the like. There is also live music on Friday and Saturday nights, and the barkeep makes a damn fine dirty martini. Who knows? Maybe you can get Colin Firth to buy one for you. —Samantha Bonar
