US Bank Tower Observation Deck

Mon Mar 25, 2013 1:01 am

I was wondering if anyone has visited the US Bank Tower in downtown Los Angeles, Ca.? Because I want to know if they allow the public citizens to the highest floors for observation purposes only? Does anyone have any idea or can help me out with some information? The tower is the highest building in downtown Los Angeles, and Im sure the view would be spectacular from 1,000 ft or even less than that. Thanks, peace out!

I've never heard of such a thing, but that's not to say that it doesn't exist. Plenty of good places to get good views of Los Angeles, but it's not like there is much to see anyway.

Of course there is lots to see. The gorgeous mountains behind Downtown LA and in winter, snowpeaked. You can see the wide expanse of the basin and streets going on forever. And apropos for this site, more than likely you can see aircraft coming in for position to LAX as they pass over and/or next to downtown LA. On a clear day you can see out to the Pacific ocean too. There's always 'something' to see. Plus, people like just getting higher up and oohing and ahhing at a view.

Many tall buildings when being designed had observation decks,, restaurants, or bars in mind. It's possible this one does although I have no idea, Maybe another building. Then again if it's a bar/restaurant, there might be sone drink needed to be purchased. The two tallest buildings in San Francisco had this in mind with having the Carnelian Room restaurant (now closed) and bar on the 52nd floor of the old BofA building as did the Transamerica Building with 2 observation decks ,and one of the Embarcadero Centers has an observation area as well. This thread is about LA, so have no idea if this is the case in Los Angeles, but im sure an internet search by the OP would get answers instead of guessing. A quick search shows either City Hall having an obs deck or The Bonaventure Hotel having a rooftop rotating bar and some place called "the Standard" having a rooftop bar. Info was from 2009 though.

You won't see much from there, it's not a high rise.

With all the truly picturesque places in the world to see, Los Angeles is not one of them.d

Well, he wasn't asking for opinions on the most picturesque places in the world for high rise viewing, he had a specific question about a specific tower in a specific city.


I guess that's the beauty of the internet, someones always answering a question that wasn't asked.

Yea thanks guys for all the support, appreciate it. I kind of did my own research too later on, and found out that you have to pay $100 on a tour (I think that includes the helicopter ride) to land on the helo pad on top of the US Bank Tower, and you can get out and get a nice view from 1,118 ft. I saw it on youtube, pretty nice, but expensive.

Considering that, as far as I knew, such a place does not exist, I'm merely saying that one isn't missing much. I already answered his question... If he is coming to LA, he should go see something else.

Any more information on this? I never knew you could land on the Liberty/US Bank Tower. I'm a total skyscraper junkie so I would love any more info on this.
oh boy!!!
