Located on the lobby level of the W Los Angeles, Whiskey Blue is the destination for the Los Angeles ‘it’ crowd and a haven for VIP’s who want to shy away from the limelight for a night. World-renowned interior design team Yabu Pushelberg created a breezy Polynesian hideaway through their dynamic design, provocative lighting accents and statement art pieces by Moss & Lamb. An immaculate staircase leads to an expansive lounge area where guests can enjoy seasonal cocktails from Whiskey Blue’s ever-changing selection of libations. A small bites menu is available, provided by Executive Chef Dakota Weiss of Bravo’s “Top Chef.” Whiskey Blue also features a private event space, outdoor patio and an adjacent café.

As with most of the W hotels this is a good spot to have a few drinks and something to eat. The outside area is the best, the inside feels a little too hotel like check in vibe for me.

I stayed in the W Hotel sometime ago for a business trip and was lucky enough to stay in this hotel. It was one of the best experiences I've had outside of NYC. The hotel was impeccable, the staff pleasant and polite and always helpful. I stayed a total of 10 days and frequented the Whiskey Blue bar a few... More

Beautiful atmosphere and decor, great outdoor space and really nice overall bar but still a little bit pricey

The W is a great place for people watching and to see and be seen. However, I personally wouldn't likely stay at this hotel. The architecture and the art/photos in the restaurant lobby and upstairs are wonderful and fun, but the drinks are very pricey and all food and drinks come with a 16% gratuity included even if they are...

I recently completed a four and a half month stay at the W hotel and I was extremely impressed with the level of service and great attention to detail. From the personalized service provided to me by Kevin White in assisting me with my family's housing needs as well as coordinating with us during events like President Obama's recent visits;...

Great rooms, top service, but at night blinged men with several six-foot girlfriends each, crowded the bars at every night. Don't know WHAT they were doing.

We have come here as our prelim to gong to the Pantages - - great outdoor space, upscale, relaxing and soothing, great people watching too. The service was friendly and cocktails were interesting. We had some sliders that were incredible, and the ahi with crispy wantons is tasty too.

I love coming here and I'm even more excited now for the upcoming renovations. I had the opportunity to join a few of my friends for a Pre-Renovation Party in the bar/lobby area, which included cocktails, appetizers and great music! The lovely Natalie Poulos, meeting and event manager for the W, really took care of us and made sure we... More
