The Sky Room, Long Beach, CA

The Sky Room Restaurant Review

: The Sky Room offers a true sense of glamour atop Long Beach’s historic Breakers Hotel, where the likes of Clark Gable, Elizabeth Taylor and Cary Grant used to take in the view over martinis. These days, romance-minded couples might begin with a classic like oysters Rockefeller or a platter of fresh, sustainable seafood from the raw bar. Larger plates include a Prime rib-eye with truffle pommes frites and asparagus, or bison short rib with fingerling potatoes and tomato confit. Guests might finish with a pecan-studded bread pudding. A global wine list ranges from first-growth Bordeaux to quirky Rieslings from New Zealand, and features many rather good values. But the enduring draw of this beachfront 1930s Art Deco-style landmark remains its old-world charm and seemingly endless vistas, with the shoreline on one side and the bustle of downtown Long Beach on the other. On Friday and Saturday nights, dancing and live music, which ranges from swing and big band to jazz and blues, spice up the room.
