Santa Monica

$$$$Perfect For:Classic Establishment

Included In

This nearly 60-year-old nautical-themed landmark is a one-of-a-kind drinking hole where you can get a dangerously stiff drink and a buttered steak all in the same place. There are peanut shells on the floor, the jukebox probably doesn’t play anything newer than music from 1983, and you’re almost positive that weird giant fish on the wall is staring at you. If you want one of the last remaining authentic experiences in Santa Monica, this is where you find it.
