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 Andres Padilla (think: Oysters, Ceviches, Coctel Classico, and Bone Marrow).

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 Marisol Puentes.

    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.

    We arrived and we were not helped. We were given a menu but server never came back. We understood they were understaffed and left. We attempted to go the following day and we were denied entrance although I was a guest at the hotel. The hotel is gorgeous. However, the front desk staff and bar are HORRIBLE!!! Best thing about plaza is the valet staff. They were great!

    Online it said they closed at 12 so we made a reservation for 10:30 but got there at 10 and they had already closed the kitchen. We had just got to town and for it to be a Saturday you would think the kitchen would be open. We even tried Ambar and they had no space and kitchen was supposedly closed. Not happy with my experience but the staff was “nice” about it.

    Beautiful bar and view. Sadly, the service and attitude of the bartender on Friday, November 5, 2021, was enough to make my out of town guests and I never want to go back. I talked to him and he comped our drinks, but that wasn’t the point. Act like you like your job and serve more than 2 drinks in 2 hours (wasn’t crowded). El Paso will never grow unless the service industry grows. It was disheartening for me who wants the most for EPT. Lots of potential but need better servers.

    We were asked when I made the reservation if it was a special occasion and I said it was my husband’s birthday. Then they never made any mention - not even to wish him a happy one. There was only one server for the entire rooftop patio and he forgot to put our food order in. We ordered a very nice bottle of wine and he never came by once to refill our glasses. It was like we weren’t even there - he dropped off the wine and 2 1/2 hours later we had to flag him down for our check. We left hungry. But the view was incredible.

    took over 15 minutes for a waiter to take our drink order and another 20 minutes to get our drinks, about 45 minutes to get our food which was cold like it had been sitting on the counter for a while. The food could potentially be good but find it a little ridiculously over priced particularly the tacos section. Should not be served per taco, they are super small. not a great experience, specially not worth the price.

    I set an outside reservation on OpenTable thinking we would have a table at the reserved time but we didn’t. Instead, we were sat inside and were told there wouldn’t be a table open for a few hours. What is the purpose of a reservation that had been made four days prior if it is not honored?

    There was a wedding during our reservation which we weren’t told about. They only had a drink menu so we needed to find an additional place to get food. The location is fabulous and view is amazing- great for viewing the sunset. Wished we could have tried some of their plates
