Drinks and dining with a glamorous view of the Avenue of the Arts.. In Short The Academy Café is no mere café. With new American cuisine, the restaurant is far from a quick stop for a bagel and a latte. Situated on the second story of the Doubletree Hotel, the eatery looks out over the hotel's lobby out to the bustling Avenue of the Arts. A huge, geometrically engineered window offers diners a first-rate view of the comings and goings at the Academy of Music.
