One of our favorite downtown spots for a quick drink is the Veranda Bar on the ground floor of Hotel Figueroa. Located just across the street from LA Live, the bar at Hotel Fig is moderately priced and has a unique, Moroccan inspired atmosphere. Jordan stops by the piano in the lobby to play a quick song or two on the walk in, and the other clientele range from older folks staying at the hotel to young club goers getting ready to walk across the street. Try to come during the summer time when the weather is nice, or you’ll encounter a near empty poolside scene as we did the other night (as you can imagine, this is significantly less fun). Our apologies for the low quality iPhone pictures, Jordan forgot his camera battery.
