Drai’s is the new lounge bar at Hollywood Boulevard’s imposing new W Hotel. This is a beast of a building, the highlight of which is a big, glittering roof terrace bar. Sprawling across some 20,000 square feet, the interior of Drai’s is slick and smacks of Vegas with its black and red colour scheme, it’s both brash and glam, not that you’ll be inside for long, not with that cool pool calling you out into the sun and the spectacular views of downtown. Martinis come served in carafes and the whole place has a Hollywood glow. Grab a booth near the floor to ceiling windows or, better still, one of the poolside cabanas. The VIP balcony with its unbeatable view out over the city is very much the place to be.
