A good rooftop or roof deck is a classic Los Angeles staple, and Peerspace is the go-to website to find this perfect kind of outdoor space. From industrial roof setups for photoshoots to roof gardens for parties, we’ve compiled some of the best rooftops in LA (and you can rent all of them on Peerspace).
1. Host an intimate party on this garden rooftop in central LA
Dress up your next dinner party on a green rooftop in central LA. Whether you’ve lived in the City of Angels your entire life or you’re just visiting, this view is certainly special. The space is particularly great for proposals, graduation parties, photoshoots, or simple romantic picnics. Overhead cafe lighting helps set the mood along with a variety of plants that take the roof from “ordinary” to “wow-worthy.” This rooftop venue also provides tables, chairs, and an outdoor fireplace for getting cozy.
2. Feel fancy on a rooftop overlooking Hollywood Boulevard
Finding a Hollywood venue like this one is rare. Especially one that includes indoor meeting spaces, an outdoor gazebo, and a rooftop deck in one space. Just two blocks east of the Dolby Theater, this is a one-of-a-kind venue that is right on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The 900-square-foot deck can accommodate up to 70 people at one time — or you can host a total of 150 people with the indoor space included. Tables, chairs, outdoor lighting, restrooms, and a kitchen are included.
Need catering or entertainment? Peerspace’s Concierge team can help you with almost any event needs — and get the service delivered directly to your venue with ease.
3. Enjoy the views on this modern rooftop in DTLA
Situated in the heart of downtown Los Angeles’ fashion district, this rooftop is the spot for trendy photoshoots and soirées. Photo and video shoots can be accommodated for large crews or just a couple looking for engagement photos. We think this review says it all:
“This space was absolutely PERFECT. The rooftop was beautiful. We booked this space for late afternoon/evening and the light looked stunning in our photos and video. Will was an awesome host and really made sure everything was taken care of before, during, and after our stay there. We were able to use the studio space as well as the rooftop and it was super helpful with our back to back shoots. The rooftop had plenty of space to shoot in different spots to make it seem cohesive, but also change the vibe if you feel like it!”
4. Sit on top of the world in a studio suite with rooftop access
Rooftops aren’t just great for photoshoots. This space in the gallery district of downtown Los Angeles is perfect for company outings, birthday parties, or family get-togethers. You’ll love the rooftop views that also offer plenty of seating and unique areas to relax or pose in.
This space comes with a photography light kit and cycloramic wall as well — for those that are looking for photoshoot locations in Los Angeles. In the studio, you’ll also get access to a dressing room, restrooms, paper backdrops and even a studio assistant to make sure it all runs smoothly.
5. Get the best view in the city on this 20,000-square-foot rooftop
This is certainly a rooftop fit for Hollywood. The stunning 20,000-square-foot space is most commonly used for productions of all sizes — with some past renters including America’s Got Talent, True Religion, and Delta Airlines.
Located in downtown, this rental is one of the best rooftops in Los Angeles with a million-dollar view. Oh — and you’ll get lighting equipment, chairs, tables, a wardrobe rack, green screen, WiFi, restrooms included. There’s also a parking lot available for rental near the venue. That’s an LA diamond in the rough.
Peerspace rentals come with real reviews that can help give an understanding of the overall experience. Here’s one review that caught our eye:
“What a great experience!! The entire team at Concrete Studios is incredibly gracious, responsive, welcoming, and professional. If they hadn’t been available to answer our questions at all hours, we couldn’t have done this shoot, which was on a very tight turnaround and part of a complicated production day. And then the ultimate bonus: the location itself, which has one of the best views of LA. Unimpeded, clean, spacious, with cool stuff to sit on / workaround for still shoots.”
6. Discover a secret garden terrace in central Los Angeles
Your next event or photoshoot could be adorned in green if you rent this dreamy venue. The two-story loft penthouse is on a quiet street that is near Hollywood hot spots. Inside, you’ll find brick walls, a spiral staircase covered in vines, and a modern kitchen.
On the terrace, you’ll get views of the Hollywood sign with ample seating. Able to host up to 80 guests, this loft could be your party paradise in the middle of the city.
7. Rent a large warehouse that comes with sweet views on top
1,500 square feet leaves lots of room to play in this massive warehouse. Located in central Los Angeles, you’ll love the trendy brick walls and bright lighting of the space. Make your way outside on the rooftop for incredible views of the city and plenty of space for even more activities or photos.
8. Enjoy a killer production space in south Los Angeles
This space really drops the proverbial mic. The studio’s 12-foot flood the place in gorgeous light while the high ceilings give plenty of space for unique angles. Wander up to the rooftop for your own oasis in the city — but keep in mind that there is a limit to the number of people that can be on the historic roof.
