Welcome to Santa Monica’s friendliest beach side bar set in the living room of a 1920s Craftsman-style house. Our laid back little den is the perfect place to grab a handcrafted cocktail, a tasty burger, or to try our FAMOUS tater tots. Featuring live music, a plethora of games and boasting one of Santa Monica’s most popular DAILY happy hours, we are confident that you can find something that strikes your fancy.

It makes no difference to us if you visit us wearing a suit and tie or come in flips flops straight from the beach. If you are having fun, we know we have done something right for the day!

Thanks for supporting your neighborhood bar and remember…… DRINK LOCAL!

Daily 4pm-8pm
