Night 1 in LA with my favourite jacket...dipping into a Blue Lagoon

20120429-225617.jpg After a fabuloso day on Melrose at Fred Segal followed by a couple of hours on La Brea at American Rag, it was decided that what was needed was a complete change of scenery and food so we choose downtown LA for both! We ended up at Bottega Louie a 3-year old ex-bank building now transformed into a hip Italian eatery and macaroon haven, sprinkled with excentrica. Though things did get off on rather bad foot - Mr. P came eye to eye with Frank, an ill disposed bar man with absolutely no service . Luckily all was forgotten with the arrival of a plate of Portabello chips, followed by delicious American beef and the superb attention of our restaurant waiter. Being on a high, it was far too early to retire, so me, my Garbo by Greta jacket and the boys headed for the rooftop bar at The Standard. With breathtaking scenery, the place was jumping and it was really hard to steal ourselves away from the Blue Lagoon cocktails and the beautiful Hollywood crowd. Good night, good night California...
