The Weekender

Rooftop Drinking, a New Gastropub and Ping-Pong

The weekend remains pro-rooftop.

Thursday
Waterloo & City Now Open
DEBUT

Waterloo & City Now Open

Sidle into a recycled church pew in the lounge of Culver City's casual new gastropub and order a round of Pimm's Cups. That'll warm you up for adventurous English fare from Brendan Collins (Anisette, the Palihouse) like Chicken Liver and Foie Gras Mousse. It's just like the last time you were in a church pew.

Now open, Waterloo & City, 12517 Washington Blvd, Culver City, 310-391-4222

Rooftop Drinking in Beverly Hills
TO THE TOP

Rooftop Drinking in Beverly Hills

Today's the kind of day that could be drastically improved by sneaking out a little early for a Beverly Hills rooftop overflowing with half-price Frozen Lemonades and Speckled Jalapeño Margaritas. Spoiler alert: next Thursday will also be that kind of day.

Saturday
Jack Spade's Grand Opening Party
THREADS

Jack Spade's Grand Opening Party

In a quaint little house on Abbot Kinney, you'll now find rooms filled with all-purpose button-downs and weekend-getaway bags instead of couches and a TV. Saturday's housewarming brings ping-pong, hot dogs and beer. On the house, as they say.

May 15, 4-9pm, Jack Spade, 1132 Abbot Kinney Blvd, Venice, 310-396-3781

Sunday
Big Night at La Bottega Marino
BOTTOMLESS

Big Night at La Bottega Marino

There's a new way to close out your weekend every Sunday night, and it involves bottomless carafes of wine. Between refills, they'll bring over hefty piles of Italian classics like spaghetti, chicken cacciatore and tiramisu. And fresh tiramisu always requires a toast...

Supper Club at the Tar Pit
TUNES

Supper Club at the Tar Pit

Or you could wrap things up instead in an elegant hideaway of drinks and Duck Sliders, where Sunday kicks off the weekly residency of Annie Trousseau. She'll help you wash it all down with French, Spanish and Portuguese interpretations of French New Wave pop songs.

Sundays starting May 16, 9pm, The Tar Pit, 609 N La Brea Ave, 323-965-1300
