Located right off of the Third Street Promenade, this go-to classy yet laidback lounge is reliably swamped on the weekends. A circular, warmly lit sign welcomes all types inside, where you'll find a wood and brick interior paired with Victorian-style tufted leather couches. Expect strong, quality drinks, made with Santa Monica Farmers' Market produce, as the spot prides itself on expertly crafted cocktails courtesy of Head Barman Vincenzo Marianella. This spot gets the local vote for best happy hour; a $5 list of wines and specialty cocktails from a classic Mint Julep to the Honey Snap—a Copa original with vodka, honey ginger syrup, fresh lemon juice and a pasteurized egg white—are on offer all night Monday and from 5:30-8pm from Tuesday to Saturday. A limited menu offers dips to share and grilled paninis on La Brea Bakery sourdough, like the Doctor's Orders, made with salami, lemon artichoke spread, fresh cream and gorgonzola.
