The latest edition to the cocktail/lounge scene has sweeping views of the city and a craft cocktail program with elevated bar bites — all in a Kelly Wearstler-designed space. Reservations required for the public and can be made via Resy.com. Valet parking is located at the building’s’ entrance off El Centro Avenue and is complimentary for up to two hours.
Operated by Proper Hospitality, the space has a glam Malibu beach house cool aesthetic influenced by vistas of the iconic Capitol Records Building, Hollywood Sign, and Griffith Park Observatory and is appointed with a swimming pool, plush private cabanas, indoor and outdoor dining areas, and a dramatically situated bar.
Extended summer hours are seven days a week from 10 am to 10 pm on weeknights; until midnight on weekends.
“With Filifera, we wanted to provide an indoor-outdoor haven not only for our residents, but also for L.A. locals and visitors looking for an idyllic space above it all in Hollywood, with a great vibe, incredible views and delicious cocktails,” says Brian De Lowe, President and Co-Founder of Proper Hospitality. “Filifera exemplifies Proper Hospitality’s vision of creating sophisticated boutique environments that set a gorgeous backdrop for guests to enjoy our hospitality.”
Filfera’s cocktail menu, developed in partnership with local bar heroes Last Word Hospitality, includes California-inspired twists on classics, as well as wines, beers, and elevated artisanal bar bites.
The cocktail menu includes:
- Passion Fruit Fizz - Maker’s Mark Bourbon, Passion Fruit, Aqua Faba, Lemon, Pastis, Wild Fennel Flower Served Up with a Splash of Seltzer
- Chamomile Last Word - Plymouth Gin, Lime, Aqua Faba, Maraschino Liqueur, Yellow Chartreuse Served Up with Chamomile Flowers
- Gin & Tonic - Beefeater Gin, Tonic Water, Seasonal Flowers, Served à la España Over Ice
Designed by world-renowned Kelly Wearstler, the interior lounge is appointed with a rich neutral palette with organic textures and furnishings produced by local artisans. Raw birch wood walls imbue the lounge with the warm, casual elegance of the coast. Outside, Wearstler has created groups of intimate seating to capture the panoramic views.
“Filifera, though in the middle of Hollywood, transports you to a different place altogether. I wanted to bring a natural, coastal feeling to the environment. It’s the feeling of a soulful Malibu beach house perched 23 stories above the city,” says Wearstler.
Programming and Special Events:
Filfera promises to be a popular locale for gatherings and special occasions — and beginning this summer, the rooftop bar/lounge will host a curated calendar of programming and events, including special culinary experiences, live music, and film screenings.
