Dining Above BH While Changes Happen Below
Last night, we watched the sun go down over Los Angeles from the rooftop of Thompson Beverly Hills. ABH, as the roofdeck is called, is open only to hotel guests and ABH members who are required to carry either their hotel room card or the member card to gain entrance.
This being Thompson and Beverly Hills, we expected a bit of a scene. But last night, things were pretty chill on the rooftop, probably because it was Monday. We sipped some sauvignon blanc, indulged in a few chips with guacamole (that's so LA, we know), and spied on some of the hotel guests milling about. (No one famous, sorry.)
But what was interesting to us was word of the changes happening to the hotel's dining scene.
The troublesome Bond Street Sushi is out and the new restaurant going in will be called Caulfield's. So we're guessing maybe a gastropub type of place? Caulfield's sounds kinda gastropubby.
Anyways, the dining area just off the lobby is under construction now but guests can still dine up on the rooftop. Just beware, the bar does include an annoying service charge. And no, the service was not extraordinary. Meanwhile rooms at Thompson Beverly Hills start at a very reasonable $289 a night this weekend.
