    Where the air is clear - late winter - a fantastic view way out into the Pacific can be had. Sunsets are incredible. The cocktails are delicious and I love their Manhattans.

    You'll pay $15 per cocktail, but the breeze and the views are the best in Santa Monica, with palm trees, the beach and the pier all visible.

    The classic décor, intimate setting and stellar views provide a great backdrop to take in some Santa Monica beach weather, deliciously crafted cocktails, and devour oysters on the half shell. Read more

    If you hate amazing drinks (The Cucumber Gimlet,Godiva Martinis), beautiful people,ga-ga views of the ocean & perfect sunsets, then this place is not for you. Drinks are pricey, and start at $15.

    Great views of the pier and sunset. Get a mojito while taking in the scenery, it's refreshing & potent. The yellowtail ceviche has great flavor, but the portions are disappointingly small.

    On May 19, make and enjoy up to six signature cocktails (w/ fresh produce) with Alex Straus, a pioneer of the Los Angeles cocktail scene. Nibble on lobster-brie sliders and truffled duck empanadas.

    The open-air rooftop lounge at the Shangri-La is a classic place for daytime or nighttime debauchery, with an unbeatable view of the ocean and sunset. Read more

    Great place to watch a sunset, head up to the penthouse in one of their old school elevators. Just be prepared for some expensive drink prices

    The wings are pretty good here. So are the filet mignon tacos. This place also has a great view of the water.

    Good drinks and music on a Friday night at the bar upstairs. Just be sure not to wear sandals, they won't let you in

    They encourage you not to take the stairs. By right you can use the stairs for egress. Don't let them force you into the elevator.

    Nice little cozy lounge with a great view of the beach, and the bartender there makes the strongest drinks by far in all LA

    The view at this place is awesome, but it is tiny! Get there early if you want a decent spot. ALSO, drinks are ridiculously expensive. I had two sidecars and my bill was $36. Not worth it.
