If the song "I Love the Nightlife" applies to you, then Santa Barbara is your kind of place. No matter what your mood or occasion, you'll find the perfect hot spot here. Looking for a romantic place to sip a glass of Santa Ynez Valley pinot? Got it. A lively brewpub to quaff a cold locally crafted microbrew? Got it. A sports bar to catch the game with fellow fans? Got it. From bustling Irish pubs, buzzing sports and beach bars, to mellow music venues and, sophisticated cocktail lounges, you'll find the area packed with welcoming watering holes.
And it couldn't be easier to hit the town--many of the bars, lounges and music clubs are clustered along downtown's lower State Street, within easy walking distance of each other. The sizzle continues up State Street and on nearby side streets with a slew of go-to bars and restaurants with happening bar scenes. Look for happy hour specials, pool tables and theme nights, such as karaoke to recharge your inner American Idol. If it's live music you're craving, check out the schedules of some of the bars and lounges listed below or peruse the calendar of upcoming live music events in Santa Barbara--whether you're a fan of folk, rock, country, indie, Irish or pop, you'll find your music mojo here.
If you're going for glitz and glamour, hit upscale restaurants and posh hotel bars. Take a sip of a sublime new trend: bartenders stock up on local produce at farmers' markets to create innovative culinary cocktails, shaking and stirring fresh fruits and herbs into divine drinks. Wherever you go, celebrate your time in paradise and drink a toast to Santa Barbara...Cheers!
