  • BonaVista Lounge

    Posted by demimasque on July 17th, 2006 (All posts by )

    Los Angeles is not famous for its skyline, even though it is recognizable, at least to locals. The nightlife downtown also leaves a little to be desired. Still, there are a couple of cool places, including the BonaVista Lounge, a rotating lounge on the 34th floor of the Westin Bonaventure, hemmed in by 4th Street on the north, Flower Street on the east, 5th Street on the south, and Figueroa Street on the west. The Lounge has a meager offering of cocktails, unfortunately, but you really can’t beat the view:

    Both pictures were taken with a time exposure of 10 seconds to take in the night light. The first was taken with the camera resting along a part of the floor that was not revolving. The second was taken with the camera resting on our table, which moved along with us and the floor.

      Curious. I couldn’t see the pictures, so I right clicked on them and chose “view image” which showed them. Then when I came back the images were there.

      (I mostly use Firefox under SuSE Linux, but I got the same result with another browser.)

      I think it’s a Blogger problem. Demimasque, I can host them here if you email them to me.
