La Perla is the Crown Jewel of El Paso.

Inspired by La Peregrina—the world-famous pearl that passed from the Spanish monarchy to Napoleon Bonaparte’s brother before appearing on the neck of Elizabeth Taylor—our rooftop bar and restaurant, La Perla, occupies what was once the penthouse suite where the starlet lived during her marriage to Nicky Hilton.

Now, it’s been reborn as a contemporary rooftop bar, with impressive views of El Paso, the surrounding Rocky Mountains, as well as over the borders of Mexico and New Mexico. Admire the saturated hues of the desert sunset with a vintage craft cocktail in hand, and sample our tapas-style, seafood-driven plates by Chef Acosta (think: Tuna Aguachile, Hamachi Pastor, and Tacos Banados).

Expect to feel like royalty perched above downtown while sipping reinvented classic cocktails.

As the evening closes and the stars begin to twinkle, opt for one of the decadent desserts by Pastry Chef Rojo.

**Please note, only cocktails served Sundays.***

    Not sure why reservations needed. You have to check in with first floor hostess, then ride elevator to 17th floor rooftop, check in with 2nd hostess who informs you that there are no servers, have to order everything from bar, with a very limited menu. Then you just seat yourself wherever you like. Not really a fancy dinner place like website alludes to. Should just be open to public for drinks only, would make much more sense. Just get dinner down below at AMbar, save yourself the hassle.

    Very nice rooftop bar. But it was bar service only and only one bartender each time I have gone so we have to wait 20/30 minutes for a drink.

    Fantastic views, great food, but overpriced. Found the self service at the bar model odd, considering the cost and setup of the space. Meaning, there’s no wait staff other than delivering food.

    I took part of the 4th of July buffet. One of the main attractions that brought me to the building was the rooftop view. Although due to rain/thunder and safety we were all forced into a single hallway with limited seating. Lately we’ve had rainy weather, so you’d think that the hotel would have foreseen this and moved us but nothing was done. We mainly sat next to other commuters almost elbows to elbow. It would have been nice to been offered some small “rain check” or something to make up for the experience. After all we were there to see fireworks from their rooftop. The food was great quality but 2 out 3 main dishes were cold. For the amount we spent on drinks and food we could have spent our time in a five start restaurant. Perhaps next 4th of July they can do better. If you do go, know that the indoor seating area is very very small.

    Looking forward to celebrate the 4th on the rooftop…. Cut short due to rain… once we went in…. Not let back out… Food was just okay… Meat for Burgers cold… buns not warmed…. Only one side….. Dessert not to get eaten due to rain…. Beautiful views…. Wish hubby and I could have enjoyed our evening…. Possible Rain check?

    The view alone makes La Perla a must for a downtown ELP cocktail. The food menu seems inconsistent as the restaurant downstairs makes changes, but it’s fine. The cocktail menu was quite nice and the bartenders were quite friendly.

    The view of El Paso, Juárez, and the mountains is amazing. The food and drinks were delicious. We had the ceviche, guacamole, hamachi verde, and the taquitos. All very good. Good service. The bartenders were very nice and quick with the orders.

    The bar staff, views, and cocktails are incredible! The food is lackluster and for some odd reason the lamb lollipops are routinely served lukewarm too cold. But the ambiance is incredible.

    My aunt and I went here while I was in town. We had a waiter and I really wish we got his name because he was just incredible. They didn’t serve desert up on the rooftop but he got it for us from downstairs. He also suggested salsas with our food and they were so tasty. We had a great time and will definitely be going back next time I’m in El Paso.

    I booked a table for 2 at 9pm Sunday after a long trip to get to El Paso while staying at the stunning Plaza Hotel. I only found out upon arrival to La Perla there was no food service on Sunday. They also had no table reserved for me- it was open seating. You had to order drinks at the bar. It is very beautiful and fun- I will certainly go again - however they should NOT be taking dinner reservations on Sunday on Open Table- when there is NO FOOD- after a delicious margarita it was 10:30 and by the time I received my room service it was 11:30 - not the dinner I was hoping for... Thank you!

    Great food, drinks and service. Beautiful view and, thanks to Mother Nature, perfect weather. Only problem, tiny tables. We had to put glasses on the floor, balance plates on our laps, etc.. We tried to sit on an area with regular tables but were told that it was only available for special events.

    Feel bad for the waiter, the only one in the full location he was doing the best he could but it wasn’t enough to sit people around and serve the food. The and location is beautiful and well decorated but you need more staff also the bartenders were rude, again need more staff and better paid.
