Look no further than Santa Monica's chic hotels to find the fabulously wealthy single crowd. The Viceroy Hotel offers plush cabanas for lounging during the day or sipping late-night cocktails as local DJs perform weekends. Celebs are often seen at Huntley Santa Monica Beach Hotel's rooftop restaurant and bar, which offers dramatic ocean views. After you nab that date with a hip exec, rent a beach cruiser and take a casual ride along the beach bike path during sunset. End the evening with a turn around the Ferris wheel at Santa Monica Pier. --A.C.
