The most posh, pretentious, plastic and expensive bar in Santa Monica. It is a nice place, Like a backyard, but it seems like you're in Hollywood w/D-bags... Just putting it out there so you know.

Amazing Happy Hour, 5-8 every day, whole menu 1/2 off, fried chicken is insane, burger is ruinous! Patio is family friendly when open. Otherwise the bar in the basement can be one raucous good time.

Good Atmosphere, always busy. California Griddle Burger, served at Happy Hour 4-7, is a a deliberate knock-off of the in-and-out burger, and you don't have to go all the way to Washington and Lincoln

Restaurant in the Fairmont Hotel. Simply the best restaurant in Santa Monica. It is a culinary experience bar none, but it's not cheap. However, the whole restaurant goes 1/2 price between 5-6pm.
