InterContinental Los Angeles opens signature restaurant, bar

The InterContinental Los Angeles is hoping to satiate hungry travelers and local office workers with its newest restaurant and bar: Mari and Copper Lounge.

Named after the hotel's owner, Mari reflects the hotelier's Japanese heritage and global travels with influences that span from Italy, Peru, Indonesia, and India.

Like most signature hotel restaurants, Mari will offer three square meals a day. There will be Chinese and Japanese-leaning breakfast options, bento boxes at lunch, and Mari's favorite entrees at dinner.

Taking advantage of the hotel's outdoor garden sanctuary, the restaurant will offer both indoor and outdoor seating with a contemporary white interior, LED lighting, and murals by Nichole Blackburn.

Just steps away from Mari is Copper Lounge, the hotel's new bar inspired by the copper stills used to distill whiskies. With an international whisky program, floor to ceiling glass walls, and comfortable seating, it should be a solid option for an evening digestif.

Copper Lounge will offer a curated cigar menu for those relaxing in the courtyard garden.

Both concepts are currently in their soft opening phase, but the renovation will fully conclude July 8.
