Cosmos Space Age Lounge.

Cosmos-Themed Encounter Lounge

Not terribly convenient for travelers, as you have to haul your luggage across a big parking lot to get there, but it's totally worth it! The fun starts in the elevator ride up, and then you step out into a swank, space-age lounge. Even the bathrooms are stylish. A must for anyone who's ever wondered what you'd get if you crossed The Jetsons with Mad Men. This is by far the best thing about LAX. It's a good place to get a drink and some food during a long connection, though you will have to go back through security.
