You're trapped in the same cycle of "happy hours."
Pull a Tarantino and unchain yourself for one of these new after-work hotspots. Bonus points if you do it in a cowboy hat.
Sit back in this swanky lounge inside the hotel’s towering atrium lobby to enjoy skyline panoramas with a rum-infused Tropical Island in hand, chilled with a fruit juice ice molding. Afrobeat jazz standards provide the soundtrack for your happiest hour of the day: eating shrimp dim sum and monster lobster rolls.

Happy hour is the perfect lead-in to get to know your sexy coworker better. Bring her by the fountain terrace of this newly-renovated lounge, where the two of you will enjoy chilling on a comfy couch by the fire pits. Sip on saketinis, share seafood paella, then test out her skills at cigar rolling and domino playing.

La Cote Mediterranean Grill
Step inside this new two-story venue offering both beachfront and poolside views and 2-for-1 chilled prawns and fried calamari. Down a mojito pitcher if you’re feeling saucy, or keep the night calm with a bucket of six Coronas for you and those five co-workers you don’t despise.
