One enters J Restaurant & Lounge into a grand corridor, with the main dining area lying to the right and the sprawling, 10,000-square-foot patio straight ahead. With a rich palette of chocolate, burgundy, espresso and saffron, the sexy design is tempered by exposed brick walls salvaged from Little J's. The outdoor patio, featuring a fire pit, abundant landscaping, a separate bar, VIP cabanas and umbrella-shaded tables, offers a spectacular view of the soaring L.A. skyline. The upper level houses the main lounge and special events area, as well as a striking 30-foot bar with a backdrop of stunning cracked glass bathed in a sexy red glow. Across from the bar lies an open-air smoking lounge that is perfect for enjoying the premium and exotic cigars J has for sale, many of which are available nowhere else in Los Angeles.
