The Daily Pint is a great place to crack open a beer and have a great time. Although at first glance, it could easily be mistaken - and probably has been - for a college dive bar.
But step inside and you'll find a whiskey list running more than 500 options deep, an impressive, ever-changing line up of craft brews on tap, and more barroom games than a traveling carnival. Congratulations, you've found it!
Welcome to one of Santa Monica's best kept secrets: A sports bar/whiskey bar/craft beer bar that has it all going on. It attracts fun lovers of every stripe in the mood for serious drinking and laid-back fun.
The crowd is as eclectic as the drink offerings, ranging from Santa Monica locals looking to chill out and college students to whiskey aficionados of all ages.
Whether it's to watch a big game or just unwind after a long day of sightseeing, this offbeat bar on Pico Boulevard is a low-key hideaway that has it all going on.
From pool tables and shuffleboard to foosball and a large screen for karaoke, this is one of the liveliest bars on the Westside.
Friday and Saturday nights are the liveliest here, where the few small table become hot commodities as the noise level ratchets up and intensive gaming showdowns gather steam.
Whether you're sitting down, standing up, dancing across the room belting out the words to hits from the 1980s, it delivers, from the first sip of vintage Scotch to the last note of Don't Stop Believing.
Location: 2310 Pico Blvd., Santa Monica; (310) 450-7631.
