The buzzing rooftop bar and restaurant from seasoned designer and restaurateur Nicholas Mathers aims to transport guests from Los Angeles to the Southern Mediterranean - all while staying in the heart of Santa Monica.
The menu is light, coastal Italian - a savory mix of pizzas, pasta, and random small dishes. But you’re not coming here for the food - you’re coming here to drink curated cocktails and stare at the ocean.
Three bars on the property make that easy, offering a variety of fun, approachable cocktails inspired by the flavors of Italy and an extensive wine list.
The crowd is a Westside mix of Axe-sprayed banker bros and people whose only source of income is paid Instagram posts. If that works for you, Elephante delivers just what you want.
Élephante Beach House is full of custom furniture and design touches that surround guests with natural wood and stone, copper finishes, and design pieces from Northern Africa and Southern Italy.
Élephante is a place to come and relax, where a tranquil afternoon might segue into a decadent dinner and flow into a lively late-night scene.
