I'm doing some research into rotating restaurants or bars in greater Los Angeles. I've found a few, but the Bonavista Lounge at the Bonaventure is the only one still spinning. Does anybody know of any others in SoCal?
GREAT list on Wikipedia, BTW.

The Bonaventure's is the only one I know of... and I hope they soon realize how special it is and restore/maintain what they've got.
Whatever happened to the revolving lounge atop the Macy's Plaza Sheraton in downtown LA? It's no longer open to the public, but I believe it did spin at one time.

Westin Peach Tree Plaza, Not in So Cal, but Georgia. Only reason to mention this is John Portman was the Architect for both the Bonaventure and the Peach Tree Plaza
The Bonaventure is the only one I know of Downtown.
*Revolves 360 Degrees in one hour.
* Location for the first seaon of 'Its a Living" with Ann Jillian. 80' Sitcom about cocktail watresses.
* Center ring is only thing that revolves, not the entire portion of the Hotel.

The Top of the World Restaurant at the top of the Stratosphere Hotel and Casino, revolves 360 degrees in an hour and twenty minutes. There is a bar at Sam's Town that used to revolve, but it stopped a couple of years ago.

If we are going outside of Greater LA, don't forget the CN tower in Toronto, still turning.
Plus the bar at Hardwicks Gobbler restaurant in Wisconson rotated. Unkown state though.

Let's build one in a downtown basement and insist it's from 1939. Some Photoshop will prove its existence. And so forth.
