Nightlife in Santa Monica

Nightlife in Santa Monica is more laid-back than the scene you'll find in downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood, or West Hollywood. And frankly, we like it that way.

We keep it real here (for the most part), and Santa Monica nightlife reflects that.

Sure, you'll still have to queue-up occasionally  - after all, is there anywhere worth going to that isn't going to attract a good crowd?

Whether you're looking for a rooftop bar in Santa Monica, live music, dance clubs, or just a cool place in Santa Monica to hang out and grab a drink, nightlife in Santa Monica delivers.

Without further ado, here are some of the best places to hang out under the stars in Santa Monica.

You Might Like These:

  • Jamesons Santa Monica

    Jamesons Santa Monica has one of the best happy hours around, tasty Irish pub eats including Irish nachos, and slow-roasted prime rib, and HD TVs galore for excellent big game watching - including European sports.

  • Harvelles Santa Monica

    Harvelles Santa Monica is the ultimate musical anachronism - a place that thrives just off the 3rd Street Promenade featuring primarily live jazz and blues.

  • The Daily Pint: A Santa Monica Sports Bar with a Whiskey Attitude

    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.
