Duck into the corridor next to the Hollywood and Vine subway stop, find the covert elevator with just two buttons—1 and 12—and you'll see it too.
Blue skies. Shimmering pool. Staggering views. And maybe some martinis...in carafes. Welcome to Drai's Hollywood, officially opening to the public on Thursday atop the W Hollywood Hotel.
Sprawling across more than 20,000 square feet of prime Hollywood rooftop, Drai's has arrived with an unapologetic agenda: to incinerate your debit card and make you forget your name...Vegas-style. (Your nights at sibling Vegas legends XS and Tryst made The Hangover look like Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel.)
Inside, you've got a choice between silver and gold half-moon booths facing the frenetic dance floor...or looking out the panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows. Outside is your oasis of sunlit dining and poolside cabanas by day—which, before you know it, evolves into bottle-service shenanigans behind drawn curtains after dark. (They're open until 3am.)
And once the night really gets revved up, you'll want to ascend the glass-railed stairs for the best spot—a VIP balcony overlooking the pool and, well, the entire city.
Even at the top, you can always go a little higher.
