Vivo Rooftop Lounge proves that the view from the top is spectacular. The open-air lounge overlooks a stretch of waterfront park along the Pacific Ocean from a fourth-floor perch. It’s the perfect spot to catch the sunset over cocktails, especially since Vivo specializes in classic manhattans and the treetini, a mix of Veev açai spirit, pomegranate liquor, lime juice, and Sprite. In an effort to promote environmental sustainability, the restaurant will plant one tree for every treetini served.

A selection of gastropub dishes—available after 5 p.m.—rounds out the menu. Diners can enjoy burgers, pasta, and grilled seafood on plush, outdoor couches while roaring fire pits and patio heaters keep chilly ocean breezes and confused snowmen from Antarctica at bay.
