The restaurant, Aix, and wine bar, Tin Tin, share the same space, so guests visiting either can kick back for southern French food and drinks while sitting in the enclosed patio, which features a fireplace. Several tables have fireplace views but opt for a cushioned chair or the couch in front of the fireplace. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide Westside views so in the event of inclement weather you can see, stay inside a little longer.
