Spire 73 is the rooftop lounge inside the InterContinental Hotel Downtown. And yes, the number 73 does mean it’s located on the 73rd floor, making it the tallest open-air bar in the Western Hemisphere. We were shocked to learn that too, but either way, it makes for a fantastic setting to drink with coworkers or a visiting friend. There are countless fire features, big mod chairs to sit in, and 360-degree views of LA (and frankly, Southern California). Grab the bacon slaw-topped burger when you get hungry.
