If you’re a fan of Hollywood’s historic Roosevelt Hotel, you may have visited its Spare Room. A cocktail lounge and gaming parlor tucked away on the hotel’s mezzanine level, the Spare Room is a gorgeous vintage spot that serves inventive cocktails. It’s also got a  playful vibe, thanks to the pair of bowling lanes and an assortment of handmade wooden games available to play as you sip.

As the Spare Room is an indoor space, the Roosevelt has just opened a new outdoor bar adjacent to its famous Tropicana swimming pool (the pool’s bottom was painted by art luminary David Hockney back in the ’80s).

Dubbed The Spare Room… Somewhere Else, the new bar offers Italian-influenced bites and creative cocktails, along with games like Mad Libs and Battleship (participants will be supplied with custom pencils and one-use paper pads).

Tonight, on Thursday, May 20, Somewhere Else is hosting jazz from Justin Esposito of Blondie Beach Records. Two sets of live jazz will bookend a DJ set. Hours tonight are 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. and you can make reservations via Resy.

The Spare Room… Somewhere Else is open Wednesdays through Sundays. The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel is located at 7000 Hollywood Blvd.
