Andaz Makes a Splash
Guest post by Andaz Cultural Insider DJ Lindsay Luv
Stepping into Andaz the first thing that envelops you is the luxurious embrace of sophisticated style, modern amenities, and a kaleidoscope of local culture. And as both a DJ, Sound Designer and their new cultural insider, I felt right at home within the West Hollywood location where music and the Sunset Strip’s rich history of music culture was at the forefront of all things Andaz. As we begin this exploration of the Andaz properties this summer, I take you first to the very top for a dip…
As I begin my journey in my new role as a cultural insider for Andaz and the experiential blog Andaz Salon, I take you first to the hub of all thing’s summer: the pool! There is a lot to learn inside the welcoming doors of the property, from local farm to table foods, fitness programs, VIP concerts, featured artists and more, but with the summer sun hotter than ever I had to start outside and work my way in.
The rooftop pool at the Andaz has a sweeping 360 view from the Hollywood Hills to the legendary Sunset Strip and beyond. As the highest rooftop pool in the city, my day felt like an oasis far from it all yet comfortably right in the thick of it! While the pool is known for some rockin summer weekend pool parties, my weekday jaunt was zen with the perfect cold Moscow Mule in hand, chilled shrimp cocktail and whipped hummus munchies and the soft sounds of the curated chill out tunes along the deck. The Andaz WeHo pool is a perfect respite from the crazy city while conveniently located within it and an easy place for the pampered guests (and myself) to pop up and take a dip and a breath of fresh air.
