Guide to Santa Monica Nightlife


The Bungalow

Stepping into The Bungalow at The Fairmont Miramar Hotel is like stepping into the coolest California house party you’ve ever seen. From the cozy décor to the ping pong tables and readily available board games, it’s easy to feel comfortable here. Stop in early to avoid a long line (before 8pm), grab a Bungalow Margarita or Lychee Gimlet and let the night unfold in front of you. The crowd here is young and very trendy. (Via

CAST Lounge

CAST Lounge at Viceroy Santa Monica is a glamorous Santa Monica bar and lounge that plays host not only to the trendsetting travelers staying at the hotel but also to some of Santa Monica’s finest locals, where it’s not hard to kick back thanks to poolside cabanas and weekend deejays. Drinks here are nicely balanced, such as the Library Libation, featuring Woodford Reserve Bourbon, Drambuie, fresh squeezed lemonade and ginger beer, making it light and appealing even to non-bourbon drinkers.

The Room

Located in that weird, inland no-man’s land part of Santa Monica, this bar can be a little tricky to find, but once you do, it’s so worth it. Good drinks made by cool bartenders, lots of old-school 90’s rap and R&B, and plenty of room on the dance floor for you and your friends to get down. (Via
