Great service, atmosphere and best of all amazing bartenders that really know how to make a great drink. The snacks are a nice touch.

We checked into the hotel quite late on a Saturday evening, after a long flight from London, so just wanted a light supper and a bottle of wine. The light supper was perfect, a meze platter and crab cakes, and they had some good French wines at not unreasonable prices. Decor is fantastic, particularly the great Tina Turner photos. The...

There is nothing like this place. We really like it b/c it's casual, the bartenders make excellent cocktails and it doesn't feel the way you might expect "Bel Air" to feel. Really a great bar.

A great quiet place to meet after work for all kinds of circumstances. Very soothing. The food is delicious and everybody is welcoming. The setting could not be better. I hope it stays like this for ever.

Before the remodeling this used to be an excellent piano bar with hamburgers and a wonderful place to be with friends from the hood. But now it's become so modernized that it does not have the same ambience and feel as before, there are other places to go

The Bel-Air isn't convenient to my house, but I was in the neighborhood and wanted to show an out-of-town guest the hotel. The drinks were good and the snacks were nice, but I didn't care for the stark new decor and giant photos, which weren't at all relaxing. The fact that there was a large family with small children nearby... More

The retro decoration wiyh black and white pictures of stars may add charm but as compared to the outside it is a bit dark. Unfortunately, we arrived after 2:30 pm for lunch and the terrace restaurant no longer open. The food was nevertheless excellent : burger (very tasty though a bit heavy), the loup de mer, and pasta.

Description
The famous hotel bar retains its unique club-like vibe from years past but with a glamorous twist. A central fireplace, grand piano and wood paneled walls will make you feel like you've been transported back to the Golden Age of Hollywood. Herringbone design floors, antique mirrors, and an incredible leather woven bar adds richness and depth to this chic new space. Since our Southern California weather is our greatest asset, the Bar has been expanded into the outdoors with the addition of three cozy garden alcoves separated by bi-fold doors. The doors can be open or closed depending on your mood.
