LTA Happy Hour: Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel

The City of Stars

In honor of the Oscars, the Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel and Loews Hollywood have introduced the City of Stars cocktail.

Specifically inspired by the film La La Land, the cocktail is .5 oz lavender syrup, 1.5 oz Botanist gin, .5 oz lemon juice, and topped off with Prosecco in a flute glass with an orchid garnish. The drink is perfect for sipping and enjoying the California sun – and even better to enjoy while watching the Oscars.

The drink will only be available through February 26 at the hotels, however each the bars – BarBelle Santa Monica and Fireside Lounge (Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel), and H2 Kitchen & Bar (Loews Hollywood) – have a selection of other signature cocktails.
