Foursquare Tips

  • ...Eh... Came here for a work party, wouldn't come back. Lame.
  • Everyone trying hard to look like they're not.
  • They actually did a decent job creating a 'casual-douche' atmosphere. Hard to do. Bartenders are the hands down absolute slowest bitches you'll find. Cherish every moment. Enjoy.
  • Never pee here or you'll be in line for 20 minutes. Boys and girls.
  • Watch the sun drop with a fresh-fruit filled cocktail.
  • Rocking on a Thursday night
  • This place is amazing! The people who don't like it are just expecting too much. It's a bar that feels like a House party. It literally feels like ur at ur crazy aunts beach house. It's awesome :)
  • The menu has three drinks and three not-so-great food options. And no draft beer. Would be fine if the bartenders knew how to mix, but they don't. I don't get what they're trying to do.
  • Think upscale UCSB frat house, if there is such a thing
  • Best new bar winner 2013. If we could translate CA culture into a cocktail, it would be this place: equal parts ocean view, killer music, a fire pit, lounge chairs, signature drinks & beautiful people
  • If I can see the ocean from where I'm standing, you shouldn't be wearing heels. Period. Gimlets = bonus #trashwhores
  • You can't smoke cigars outside but you can smoke cigarettes? REALLY DUMB!!!!! >_<
  • Nice place but huge lineee!
  • OK scratch my last tip. There is an epic line and it's 45 out.
  • Yes, that "reserved" sign means you. Until it doesn't.
  • Not a bar. A holidays house, close to the beach. Unique ambiance, interesting people and good drinks (bit pricey, ok). Enjoy a pool or tennis table game with strangers, the fire pit or just chill. GO!
  • The "Kick in th Junk" cocktail is phenomenal! Try one or six. Play ping-pong with a stranger and please don't stare at your phone there is a lot of nice people here. Try new things!! #MezcalElSilencio
  • Try the Mojitos, Outdoor Dining.
  • What David R. Stated (below in tips on May 2) about letting locals skip the line w/Santa Monica IDs is not correct.
  • Kick in the Junk. Do it.
