Sightings Bar & Restaurant is an iconic landmark structure at the Los Santos International Airport within the city of Los Santos. It opened in 1961, and it is an example of the Mid-Century modern influenced design school known as "Googie" or "Populuxe".
The distinctive white building resembles a flying saucer that has landed on its four legs. The appearance of the building as a single homogenous structure is a cleverly constructed illusion. The building's two crossed arches actually consist of four steel-reinforced concrete legs that extend approximately 15 feet above the ground, and a hollow, stucco-covered steel truss constituting the remaining lower arches and entire upper arches. To avoid changing the appearance of the structure with overt reinforcement, the building was retrofitted with a tuned mass damper to counteract earthquake movements.
One of the 50 letter scraps can be found on top of this building.
- The building is a rendition of the real life Theme Building at the Los Angeles International Airport.
