Mediterranean
Above the Hotel Per La, Bar Clara is a rooftop celebrating Downtown Los Angeles.

The bar showcases deliberately whimsical sections such as the Spritz Rainbow, part of the bar’s collection of colorful bubbly libations. The wine list expresses the lightness and salinity of coastal winemaking through modern producers and their fruit-forward techniques. The culinary team creates snacks and plates intended to be enjoyed in harmony with the venue’s beverage-forward personality.

Bar Clara’s Mediterranean-inspired cuisine is influenced by California and Southern Italian coastal flavors. Notable dishes include Frisée con Pulpo with charred octopus, gigante beans, frisée, and a warm guianciale vinaigrette; Pesce di Latta, presented with tinned sardines, pickled vegetables, whipped butter, and toast; and Skewered Prawns roasted with harissa, charred lemon, and dill yogurt; and a Calabrese Salami Stuffed Snapper prepared with salami, citrus, tarragon, & parsley.

    This was my second time at Bar Clara and I’m honestly reluctant to post about it because I don’t want everyone else to know how great they are, I want to keep this treasure to myself! The food is pricy but absolutely worth what you get, the quality is so good. Same with the drinks. And that’s not counting the unbelievable skyline and ambiance. Really, Bar Clara is my new favorite place and I hope it doesn’t get too crowded because right now it’s absolutely perfect.

    Good food. Higher priced but quality ingredients. Ambience was great and the DJ played a good mellow mix that wasn’t too intrusive.

    A very pleasant rooftop bar/restaurant with nice views of Downtown LA. It’s a bit cramped, but still nicely landscaped and decorated. The menu isn’t very extensive and they specialize in Greek/Mediterranean dishes, which were mostly very tasty. Great service.
