Onyx Lounge resides in the original Security Trust and Savings Bank building, which was erected in 1906 and designated a cultural landmark in 2003. In fact, as one of LA's first skyscrapers, it was the city's tallest building until several structures had unexpected growth spurts in 1911. The scene inside is much different today, but Onyx maintains a connection with the building's historic past. Creators of the candle-lit lounge designed it as a cultural, artistic, and sensory experience, which begins with the food and drinks. Guests sip farm-fresh cocktails, such as the Spring St. Smash featuring bourbon, blackberry, basil, and sambuca. They also dig into popular dishes ranging from?spicy garlic fries and other small plates to full entr?es, such as braised short ribs and vegetable risotto. On Friday and Saturday nights, performers punctuate visits with live music.

You might feel like you're underwater at Aqua Lounge as it exhibits a sea-blue glow, emitted from the bar and rows of illuminated tubes that perpetually transport bubbles up toward the ceiling. At the bar, those bubbles are mimicked inside golden flutes of champagne and sparkling wines that's paired with seafood-centric cuisine including freshly-shucked oysters on the half-shell. A long list of libations is complimented by a quick and direct selection of contemporary dishes, including oysters from both coasts, ceviche shooters, and flat iron steak, cooked to order.

"Best restaurant in the Universe" — Ilan Hall Chef-owner Ilan Hall named The Gorbals after a diverse immigrant neighborhood of Glasgow, Scotland, where his father grew up rubbing elbows with neighbors from Pakistan, Russia, India, and Eastern Europe. Like Hall's Israeli Scottish Russian German heritage and The Gorbals' mishmash of cultures, the restaurant can't be pigeonholed into a specific background. Instead, it celebrates a joyful cultural synthesis with a pan-ethnic menu of contemporary gourmet small plates and desserts: banh mi poutine mingles with dry-aged burgers, and latkes and applesauce share table space with welsh rabbit and grilled squid. A wine list and a spirits menu complement each dish with rich, complex European vinos, smoky scotches and woodsy bourbons, or perfectly balanced classic cocktails. The menu's shareable spirit makes The Gorbals especially suitable for group dining occasions. Before opening up The Gorbals, Hall cut his culinary teeth as a teenager in the Lorenzo de Medici school’s Apicius program in Florence. He proceeded to hone his chef's knife at esteemed locales such as Charlie Palmer's Aureole New York and Mario Batali's Casa Mono. Most visitors may recognize Hall from his appearance on Bravo TV's Top Chef, where he claimed victory in the second season after defeating all other chefs in unarmed combat. Hall also hosts the Esquire Network's Knife Fight, a series of underground cooking competitions whose first two seasons were filmed inside The Gorbals.
