At Bonaventura Gelato Lounge, Alessandro Bonaventura uses his experience from Bologna, Italy's Gelato University to craft aesthetically pleasing treats for his young and young-at-heart customers. Each day, he and his wife, Stephanie, handcraft gelato from all-natural ingredients?imported from Italy or sourced locally?and arrange scoops into the shape of caterpillars or whales. Instead being lumped into a bowl, sundaes are placed in souvenir pirate ships or vintage cars to be played with after the last spoonful is gone. For toddlers, staff will dole out miniature servings so they get their own little cup rather than sharing.
So-called adults are also charmed by the duo's icy creations, whether it's plain silky-smooth gelato (also available in fat-free, gluten-free and dairy-free versions) or a more elaborate creation. A German gelato treat called spaghetti eis, for example, convincingly mimics pasta with vanilla gelato noodles, housemade strawberry sauce, and white-chocolate sprinkles. For a new take on the ice-cream sandwich, the GelaDough encases scoops between donuts or sweet brioche buns. Another trompe l'oeil confection is the pizza gelato, specifically made with gelato and fruit for Ninja Turtles with a sweet tooth.
By day, Industry is a bright and airy cafe, with vibrant artwork lining the walls and colorful curtains slung from the ceiling or pinched off to the side. As night falls, the space transforms into a romantic, shadowy venue for writers and musicians, who take to the cafe's intimate stage during open mics to play a jazz melody on their guitar or recite a poem on their guitar.
Though the restaurant's personality might change, its menu always maintains an eclectic mix of Ethiopian cuisine and American soul food. Here, Eastern African mainstays such as doro wat and injera bread share a spotlight with candied yams, cornbread, and peach cobbler. Beer and wine top off the selection, and Happy Hour specials are available throughout the week.
Ugo claims to be the first establishment in Southern California to feature enomatic dispensers. These self-service wine stations begin to pour with the simple swipe of a card, making it even easier to get comfy inside a romantic space defined by candlelight and live jazz music.

Today's side deal provides the bed and four well-decorated walls to enclose it with a Queen Superior Room at the Crescent Hotel Beverly Hills for $125 (an up to $305 value). Purchase one Groupon for one night or several for several nights. There is no buy limit, but reservations are subject to availability.
After honing his skills in Gordon Ramsay's kitchen at The London in Hollywood and at the Fig restaurant in at the Fairmont Miramar, Executive Chef David Padilla brings his fine-dining expertise to On Rodeo Bistro & Lounge. All three menus?breakfast, lunch, and dinner?feature meals inflected with California influences, from an open faced salmon sandwich and veggies to a spicy tuna tartare with avocado. Other entrees cater to non-carnivorous appetites, such as the Beverly Hills Lobster Club sandwich, mushroom risotto, and drunken shrimp.
During social hour every day from 4-7 p.m. in the lounge, bartenders pour an international selection of wines while mixologists craft signature cocktails, such as the Donna Martin key lime martini and the Kelly Taylor?a sparkling wine drink with fresh raspberries. They also mix up other inventive spirits such as the Luxe Mule with orange vodka, lime juice, and ginger beer?which is beer fermented in oak sculptures of Carrot Top.
