Standing 70 feet high, this restaurant and bar overlooks the runways at LAX, making it a destination spot for taking in 360-degreee views. Encounter Restaurant serves classic and modern martinis in a circular space with brightly hued lava lamps and a crater-shaped bar. The bar's libations are the primary draw, including siganture cocktails like The Black Hole made with Absolut vodka and a splash of Chambord, but there's also a food menu of bistro fare. Popular selections include pepper-crusted New York steak, fried calamari, and tuna tartare.
Be prepared for the elevator ride up to the restaurant, which includes futuristic music and glowing lights on the ceiling.
