The Craftsman Bar and Kitchen

The Craftsman Bar and Kitchen is a friendly, beach-side bar and grill set in the engaging style of a 1920s-era Craftsman-style living room.

It is home to one of Santa Monica's best happy hours, where the inviting ambiance will have you feeling like you're at a friend's house instead of a neighborhood bar.

And the prices, like a good friend, won't leave you disappointed - especially during happy hour daily until 8 p.m.

Featured cocktails are $5 and include margaritas, sidecars, Brown Derbys, and Southsiders. All well drinks and house wines are also $5.

Craft beers on tap include Duvel Belgium, Ballast Point Sculpin IPA, Anchor California Lager, and Hangar 24 Orange Wheat.

The snacks on the menu will appeal to your comfort food cravings. And at $5 each, why not indulge in the tater tots, deviled eggs, sliders, or onion rings? 

Here you'll find one of the most extended happy hours in Santa Monica, running from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. every day - and a roomy outside patio housing the large size Jenga, a touch screen photo booth, and shuffleboard to enjoy between sets.

Live Music is Always on Tap at the Craftsman Bar

The Craftsman Bar is the perfect place to stop in for live entertainment seven nights a week while enjoying a cocktail or tasty craft beer.

The place rocks Tuesday through Saturday nights, and they sponsor local talent with an open mic every Tuesday. 

The house band, The Old Fashioned, takes the stage every Friday night, and on Monday through Thursday nights, you can expect to find an array of other local acts. 


The Craftsman Bar and Kitchen is located at 119 Broadway, Santa Monica; (310) 573-8426.
