Went here for happy hour with friends and co-workers. $12 Jameson on the rocks, more rocks than Jameson. Had one drink, and we were out! Save your money, have some food and drinks elsewhere.

Awesome views been here a few times. Usually never crowded. But we go in the late afternoon. We sit and have a drink and just talk and enjoy the view of the beach. The lounge is rooftop nice and airy and relaxing. They need a happy hour they used to to a really good one.

Cocktails were all over $12 or $13 and everything else was super expensive. Small and cozy place with the nice view

I LOVE this place! I am surprised by the negative reviews! It's a rooftop bar! Excellent view, great music on the weekends and great BAR FOOD! Weird that the negatives come from people who thought this was the Ritz! The drinks are fresh and the bartenders are fun and attentive. Stop by for a casual drinking experience with friends around...

Had a drink here while staying at the Doubletree hotel. It is on the hotel property. The menu referred to the place as "Moquila". Perhaps they changed the name. Regardless, it is the rooftop bar. Service was above average. Drinks were fine, but it's hard to mess up a run and Coke. Food was very limited, despite being served out... More

I found the reviews of this place to be very misleading so let me clarify. It sounded to me like this was a posh little rooftop bar, but in actuality it is a cheesy hotel bar inside the Doubletree on a rooftop patio. The hotel is not upscale. The lounge is not upscale. It was basically a very plain patio... More

It is located on an outdoor patio on the top of the hotel. The view is lovely, and the staff were friendly. You could also order some very good appetizers.

This is a great place to have a drink, watch the sunset into the ocean, and get ready for your night out. Most people would not know about this gem unless they were staying at the Double Tree Doheny Beach - since this is the bar located at the top floor of the hotel. Locals do come here a lot,... More
