On The Troubadour's second floor, Lopez will run The Troubadour Lounge. Bartender T. Cole Newton, the owner of Twelve Mile Limit, will create the drinks at the lounge and all the other outlets at the hotel.

On The Troubadour's roof, Lopez will run a roof-top bar called the Monkey Board. The venue, 17 floors above the ground, has a 360-degree view of the city.

The kitchen will serve global "food truck-style" fare, like chilaquiles with Oaxacan mole or black garlic hummus.

Monkey Board's casual menu will also include shareable drinks and, for dessert, a birthday cake covered in colored sprinkles and sized for four.

The rooftop bar, named after the highest platform on offshore oil rigs, will regularly host bands and DJs.
