Inside the Torrance Marriott, chefs toss together farm-fresh ingredients to create flatbreads, sandwiches, and well-balanced entrees that complement a wine list of more than 40 different vintages. A two-story water feature gives meals a soothing backdrop for thoughtful conversations or raucous celebrations in anticipation for a new quarterly budget report. Outside, flickering flames from the fire pit cast a glow on the zen garden's orange-cushioned lounge chairs beneath the clear Southern California sky.
There's only one thing hotter than the surface of the sun—the dance floor at its core. Nightclub SOL lives up to its celestial namesake with a weekly lineup of dance parties, live DJs, and top-shelf drink specials. On a given night, live music, Top 40, hip hop, and house music pulse from the speakers, some mixed with a hint of Latin of vibes. Other times, artists spin the latest techno tunes from all over the world, or electronic musicians present new remixes and original music. Other special events include comedy shows and holiday parties.
Gasser Lounge's tap masters sling craft brews and signature cocktails within a sleek, low-lit hangout that emanates rock-'n'-roll vibes with tables made from tires, red-leather booths, and shrines to Johnny Cash. A Harley V-twin-engine beer tap combines the spirit of the open road with the joviality of sipping on a lively libation more effectively than a stationary-bike-powered wine press, pouring Gasser's house draft, Bitchin' Brew ($3) as well as microbrew favorites including Lagunitas IPA and Mama's Little Yella Pils ($5).
Studio Restaurant and Lounge is equal parts food and festivity. Here, filet mignon sandwiches and country-fried chicken are regularly served to the beat of drums, the strum of guitars, or the stylings of resident and guest DJs. Red and green light drenches the crowd on the dance floor as well as diners digging in to burgers and bacon macaroni ‘n’ cheese. Studio Restaurant and Lounge also entertains its guests with football nights and speed-knitting tournaments.
