When you want to get romantic at The Beverly Hilton, bring your sweetheart to dinner at Trader Vic’s Lounge and request a poolside table. At night, the alfresco spot offers a cozy vibe. The space has chic Polynesian décor, with chocolate-brown wicker chairs and sofas outfitted with sky-blue and avocado-green pillows surrounding silver-bordered glass tables. Palm trees add to the tropical flavor. Triangular portable fireplaces are sprinkled throughout, providing dim, romantic lighting to the couples sipping mai tais and sharing lobster dumplings. If you dine there on Thursdays, Fridays or Saturdays, you’ll also have a DJ providing some music to the festivities. When we were there recently, the DJ was spinning hip-hop mixes, which may not put some in the mood for romance, but it gave the atmosphere a nice boost of energy. The rest of the romantic scene should be enough to enjoy some couple time.
