In the most glamorous days of Hollywood lore, Tropicana Pool played host to the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Charlie Chaplin and Clark Gable—who sipped pool-side martinis and mingled alongside the city’s most debonair patrons. Today, that charm lives on, albeit with a contemporary flare.
With very few aesthetic changes, Tropicana abides as a quintessential staple of Hollywood’s most cherished destinations. The mass of palm trees have grown taller and greener, the iconic Roosevelt Hotel sign glows brighter and the renowned David Hockney pool—a celebrated artistic and architectural masterpiece— continues to captivate pool-goers and guests from around the world.
During the day, Tropicana serves as an oasis for hotel guests and locals, as well as the perfect embodiment of the Southern California dream for tourists. The white, leather lounge-chairs set against lush greenery embody Hollywood glamour and recall the set of a classic movie; But at Tropicana, the guest is the star and the servers will happily cater to her every need, whether that be a classic American hamburger or a champagne cocktail.
As the sun sets and the Tropicana Bar sign glows more vibrant, the poolside turns into one of the most coveted hotspots in Los Angeles. The trees are lit up with sparkling lights, the pool is masked with translucent flooring and the guests begin to stream out of the private bungalows surrounding the poolside, seeking refuge in the plush lounge area.
