Sit back and relax at these great al fresco dining spots around town.
With such beautiful days of seemingly endless sun, it is a shame to sit inside in Los Angeles. And with the warm months just around the corner, there’s no better time to sit outside to enjoy late sunsets, sunny afternoons, and the long twilight that affords ideal happy hours and early evening drinking al fresco.
And no matter what aesthetic you’re looking for, LA has it all. New additions to this year’s map include the desert-chic Salazar, the strong garden party vibes at Mardi, LA’s best new Sunday destination, an art gallery hot spot that comes with live chickens, and Pacific Ocean-adjacent Nobu Malibu.
