It’s not just the weather that’s heating things up on The Sunset Strip this week. Four of the boulevard’s amazing venues were named “best of” in two separate lists.

Katana was named one of’s top 50 “Hot Spots Restaurants” in the U.S. Based on more than seven million reviews submitted by diners from more than 12,000 restaurants, Katana was one of the elite restaurants recognized on the list. Patio dining overlooking The Sunset Strip, critically-acclaimed sushi, flawless service and handmade cocktails propelled this Sunset Strip mainstay to the top of the list.

Skybar at the Mondrian Hotel, Andaz West Hollywood and The London West Hollywood all received recognition as the “Best Rooftop Bars” in CBS’ Best of Los Angeles. The news couldn’t come at a better time either, with summer heat infiltrating the L.A. basin. What better way to spend your days or nights than relaxing on these pool decks while taking in amazing views and refreshing cocktails.
