Bar Clara Details:

🍔 Food:
Their food menu is served daily from 12pm-10pm. The Tempura Fries are super flavorful and a must-try for something to snack on. Entrees like the Ground Chuck Burger or Seared Halibut are also more filling options.

🍸 Drinks:
House cocktails include selections like “The Sun,” a delicious tequila drink made with blood orange, agave and lemon. “The Buzz” is also properly named if you’re looking for a coffee liqueur caffeine boost. Bar Clara’s wine selection is also plentiful along with draft and canned beers.

🎶 Music:
They have DJs that regularly come in during afternoons and nights to play live sets and keep the vibes flowing. It’s not a dancing spot, but you’ll hear upbeat, laidback music that matches the atmosphere.

There’s a calmness to Bar Clara that’s easy to get lost in. On a day with pleasant LA weather, you can easily forget you’re not away on vacation (unless you actually are, and in that case you’ll be fully in your element). The indoor lounge and patio are both perfect for catching up over a late lunch. There’s also plenty of cabana and lounge seating surrounding the pool with table service. Just sit back, relax and enjoy the solid view of Downtown LA.

📸 Photo Ops:
Their standout art piece is the fireplace, which is a lava rock sculpture of a face that overlooks the pool. If you snag the table next to it, it’ll undoubtedly be a one-of-a-kind photo op.
