When the weather is hot this summer, you’ll definitely be in need of a cool watering hole. Luckily for you residents of Los Angeles, there are more than enough rooftop bars where you can chill out with a drink in hand to beat the heat. But which high-in-the-sky locales are still haute?

The Rooftop Lounge offers the best views Laguna Beach has to offer – and that’s high praise. You may just see a Real Housewife of Orange County or two (or all of them) hanging out there nowadays taking in the scenery and relaxing from the stress of their personal dramas. However, you too, can settle back with a Mojito and let the weight of the world fall from your shoulders as you stare out at the sea, sun and — best of all — surfers.
