Great Blue Collar Bar
Great place to hang out with the blue-class and occasional white-collar local. Usually friendly, but can get stupid late at night. Best bartenders are the 2 daytime barmaids (10AM - 6PM) and Glenn on Thu-Sun nights.
Nice place to party
I came here mainly because they had a study hall in Isla Vista (the college town in UCSB). It is a nice place to go and party. The dance floor is decent although it does get crowded. The bar area is pretty neat centered in the very middle of the place. They play nice R&B and hip hop. Fun place to dance and party.
A mellow place to meet your friends for drinks and play some good old fashioned board games. It's a beer and wine bar but they have a good selection of draft beers. I would go here more often if it wasn't in Goleta. It's also easy to miss if you're just driving by. I love the mid-century furniture and the bartenders are friendly.
I love this bar
Karaoke Fridays are the best! Can get a bit crowded but now they are really monitoring occupancy. There may be a wait. The drinks are good and fairly cheap. There are always familiar faces and local karaoke stars.
One of the few places in Santa Barbara that has live music. The drinks are average. The locale a bit hidden. But overall a good place to see local musicians perform. Sometimes they have some good acts come through like Cat Power.
