Covid-19 Santa Monica Updates & News

Copa d Oro 

Copa d Oro is just off the Third Street Promenade on Broadway - a convenient place to stop and recharge with craft cocktails after a long day of shopping.

It also happens to be one of the best happy hour spots in Santa Monica and is an excellent destination for Friday and Saturday nights.

You'll find it a classy yet laid-back lounge with a fun crowd, and DJs are spinning into the wee hours.

The name is a nod to the California poppy, which Spanish explorers referred to as "cups of gold" (copa de oro). But the real gold for Santa Monica drinkers might be a quiet, hip bar that skews toward a more literate, well-traveled crowd.

A Friendly Crowd with an Old-School Vibe

Copa d Oro is a good place to hang out with friends and listen to some pumping old school beats from the DJ in the corner with a chill, friendly crowd. 

The bar caters to a slightly older demographic that is "...maybe a little more educated, a little bit more traveled, a little bit more literate," explains the understated lounge's founder, Jonathan Chu.

"My friends are always complaining that they have nowhere to go for drinks, so I opened Copa to help fill that void," Chu says.

The 2,000-square-foot space usually hums with a post-work assortment of smartly dressed urban professionals intently eyeing the craft cocktails made with organic fruits and herbs in a low-lit, intimate setting.

You can order the Imperfect Manhattan, Caipirinha, Moscow Mule, and Caribbean Collins for $5 each, as well as mojitos, Tommy's margarita, Pimms cup, and more for $6 during happy hour, which runs 4 p.m. to 8 p.m highly, and all night on Mondays.
