Los Angeles, CA–  Designed by Los Angeles based design firm Kayat DesignsRiviera 31 transports guests to a chic, European cocktail lounge complete with live music, coastally- influenced fare and unique cocktails.  Located in the Sofitel hotel, Riviera 31’s name reveals its history as its roots originate from the South of France and it is in California, the country’s 31st state.  The new venue offers an attractively priced Apéritif menu weeknights from 6PM to 8PM, reflecting the French custom of enjoying an apértif before dinner in order to stimulate the appetite.  As the evening unfolds, your attention is directed from intimate conversation with friends to live entertainment provided by lounge singers and a roster of rotating DJs.
