When it comes to the demographics of wine bars in Santa Monica, Wally’s is typically tourists and sugar babies, Esters is a holding ground for hangry people waiting for their table at Cassia, and Bodega is 23-year-olds on early-in-the-game dates. Then there’s Offhand, the chill, just-sophisticated-enough antidote to all of the above. Sure, the building itself looks like it could be a Chipotle from the outside. But inside, they’re spinning vinyl with super smooth transitions, pouring interesting natural stuff, and the lighting is just right. This is a great spot to meet up with friends or a date when you want to chit-chat, but also want to feel like you’re out on the town. Come by for a drink and you’ll probably stay for two.

Esters Wine Shop & Bar review image

Esters in Santa Monica might be known as that place you drink at before eating at Cassia, but this wine bar very much stands on its own.

Bodega Wine Bar review image

Bodega is a wine bar in Santa Monica with a good bottle list, decent food, and an atmosphere far livelier than your average bar full of wine drinkers.
