Cabra at Hotel Hoxton: Rooftop Revelations on Top of the World

Cabra Los Angeles

For a long time before the 2016 Renaissance, sanctuary in Downtown LA came only in the form of iconic rooftops with majestic views that paled off into the distance. For those lucky enough to escape the trials and tribulations of the urban grind below, this meant cool breezes and bird-eye views over the city landscape by day and unmatched serenity amongst the stars by night.

And just when we thought it couldn’t get any better, a constellation of culinary havens began ascending, merging starlit solace with the festivity of clinking glasses and skyward symphonies of flavor.

Soon after 2019, the Hoxton Hotel would open on Broadway, followed shortly by the hotel’s adoption by some of America’s most acclaimed culinary masters. Chef Stephanie Izard and Boka Restaurant Group powerhouses Rob Katz and Kevin Boehm would reveal Cabra Restaurant to the world. A vibrant flavor and atmosphere, set against the stunning backdrop of the DTLA skyline.

Cabra quickly became a sweet-spot for locals and travelers seeking unforgettable experiences in downtown.

Sharing Hoxton’s 12-story platform with an iridescent swimming pool and outdoor sun deck, Cabra’s city views beckon a good time. With the aroma of approaching plates coming from an open kitchen and a full cocktail program complete with fine wines and artisan brews, anticipation for positive experiences just comes naturally at Cabra, allowing visitors to empathetically bond with servers and staff.

Forget solo entrees and predictable dining. Cabra champions a family-style feast, forcing the elevated joys to flow over the top.

Cabra opens at 5 p.m., with diner reservations allowing guests to sit indoors or out and making room for private parties.

Well seasoned and ready to start each dining experience with a menu of starters that include favorites like hot chorizo and queso dip, beef or chicken empanadas, followed by main courses of wood-fired skirt steak, roasted Mary’s hen, and crispy pork shank, accompanied by a list of hearty salads and delicious pairings of bass or salmon ceviche.

Although Monday and Friday patrons dine with a sunset backdrop, Cabra does serve brunch.

Brunch dishes include the creamy crab cassa and wood-fired skirt steak and eggs, drizzled with the magic of saltado sauce.

Brunch is a daytime paradise where cityscapes and all-you-can drink mimosas collide, with bottomless mimosas and creative delights like shrimp-hash pancakes and tomato-strawberry Cabra omelettes. Cabra’s DIY Mimosa Party is $35 per person and happens every Saturday and Sunday during brunch (10:30am – 3pm).

From the moment you step onto the rooftop, a sense of anticipation washes over you. The atmosphere is electric, charged with the promise of good times and unforgettable memories. Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion, enjoying a night out with friends, or simply seeking a sophisticated escape, Cabra delivers an experience that will leave you feeling on top of the world.
