California Dreamin': Honey On The Rooftop

 Lo and I with Monica Payne - We loved her hair!

No attitudes. No doormen. No cover. My L.A natives are probably thinking this is too good to be true, considering L.A is known for their cocktail-sipping, snooty party scene, coupled with the hit or miss velvet rope games. However Monica Payne, Shelly Otto, DJ Rashida & DJ Eque, also known as The Honey Collective; definitely got it right with this one. Their rooftop soiree's presents a marriage of well dressed party goers, hipsters, good vibes, and sweeping views of the Downtown L.A skyline which perfectly frames the ultimate summer gathering. - For the past three years, these four beautiful ladies who came together as a collective, have been curating events that range from album/magazine release parties, movie premiere parties, to award after-parties, and of course their summer sexy soiree's.
Patrons are free to lounge around on comfy couches whilst sipping on drinks [reasonably priced may I add], as the cozy atmosphere is conducive to mingling, grooving, or 'working the room'. The Celebrity Selectress' better known as DJ Eque, has an impressive resume that spans from Diddy, to Virgin Records, GQ Magazine, and Mariah Carey respectively; so this honey definitely knows how to keep the party going.

With the opening of L.A live, new lofts sprouting up on almost every corner, some of the best bars in town, and my new favorite haunt, Honey On The Rooftop; Downtown is once again the place to be in Los Angeles!
 Shout outs to these beautiful ladies that recognized me from the site! 

Lots of beautiful + positive ladies in the house!

  2. Looks nice. I never thought I'd visit L.A. again because of the snooty attitudes and just the air of the town. But to see and read about such positive vibes downtown, makes me want to try this area out if I do return.

  4. I luv the Honey Collective events. Definitely a cool, laid-back, artsy atmosphere. Better than the usual club type event in L.A. for sure. And their evening events are just as great. I will probably see you and Lo one of these days out and about because we frequent the same areas and the same type of events, lol.
