a nice lounge to "chill" in after dinner date in West LA
I call upon your wisdom once again. This time, yours truly has a date at "Nook" tomorrow for dinner. But because Nook closes at 10 PM. I would like to find a place with comfortable couches or someplace with a relaxing atmosphere to sit and talk. Preferably a place that has a nice ambiance and soft piano or jazz music playin in the background. Please help. Thanks.
The Wilshire has a nice bar in the front and a gorgeous semi-covered (how would you describe those white sail-things?) patio with a cozy lounge in the far back half.
It's technically a restaurant as well but I go there primarily for drinks. Friday night might be a vicious scene though ... but I've been there on Friday and Saturday nights and seats are not necessarily hard to come by.
I have to check out Maison 140 now ... thanks for the heads-up!

OP what time are you going. masion 140 is very very small and typically it is packed after 10 on a FRIDAY. I would go there anyway for the cool franco asian vibe and you may find a seat on the couchettes. I dont tink the whole place seats more than 15 people.. otherwise it wont be a total loss the penninsula has a nice lobby and you can order drinks or teas or a fruit plate.. enjoy and have fun.. oh and yes if you are dining at the nook be prepared to pay $30 for two martinis with tip at 140.. But in my opinion its work it if you get the seats as no on will bother you to leave.. and also the Friar Club is next door to ( well around the corner ) she will think you are a total player with this line up.. haha
