Sunshine, star-spotting and killer martinis are the name of the lunchtime game at the Polo Lounge, the Pink Palace’s equally iconic restaurant. Nosh on the McCarthy salad and linger over the lunchtime game of playing “spot the who’s who of Hollywood.”

This vegan eatery has a whimsical vibe, a breathtaking garden patio, innovative cocktails (the snow cone and weed drinks are one-of-a-kind items) and fantastic plant-based Mexican fare. It’s so relaxed you may never go back to the office.

The Sunset is one of those places that you can hang all day… and all night. Its location—it’s based right on Zuma beach—means that you can totally zen out regardless of the time of day or situation, whether it be watching the surf, soaking up the sun or, yes, even enjoying the sunset.
