There’s Nothing (and Probably No One) You Won’t See Up Here

Up until now, your relationship with seafood towers and champagne has mostly been a terrestrial affair.

For shame.

Let’s change that at Catch LA, a new NYC import placing all manner of comestible delights on top of the town’s most handsome new rooftop. It opens tomorrow and is now yours to behold right here.

This vine-snaked, fountain-peppered, gravity-defying oasis is for your big nights. The kind you want to spend hovering over Melrose, celebrating with friends, partners and dates. Your outstretched grand brut illuminated by the Pacific Design Center, Downtown, Hollywood landmarks and just about everything else visible in the distance.

If you can tear yourself from those views and IMDb-ing whoever sits next to you, you might want to eat. Splitting a seafood tower and some truffle sashimi would behoove you. Then everyone can go in their own respective Cantonese lobster/50-day-dry-aged ribeye/vegan sushi directions. Here’s the menu to begin scheming.

Once you’re sated, a balmy gust may sweep through. Maybe a DJ will soothe the savage beasts drinking Casting Couches (reposado, hibiscus, housemade root beer, pineapple and bitters) around you. And should it start to sprinkle, the open roof will become sealed above you as if by magic.

Remember rain?
