One of the most popular watering holes in the Greater Los Angeles Metropolitan Area, the Veranda Bar in the lobby of the Casa del Mar Hotel, originally built in 1926, is located right on the coast a short distance from the Santa Monica Pier and features a relaxing lounge awash in modest but tasteful decor, complete with wicker chairs and 20-ft.-high windows that not only let in a lot of natural light but feature a gorgeous view of the beach and the Pacific Ocean.
Among the delicacies to be had at this luxurious establishment are the crisp wild mushroom flatbread with sweet corn, talleggio and chives, as well as an array of other fine gourmet dishes such as soups, salads and sushi. Among the more popular entrees are the Lobster sandwich, the calamari, and Eggs Benedict with potatoes on the side. In addition to a tasteful selection of beer and wine, there are many delightful cocktails to be had are the Lychee cocktail, the chocolate martini and their fabled blueberry mojito. In addition, bottomless bubbly wine can be had for the modest sum of only $13.99.
As if the food, drink and the view of the Pacific were not enough, live music can be heard five nights a week, with styles ranging from classical to jazz to pop. So make the Veranda Bar the place for your next business appointment and bask in its radiant, relaxing atmosphere.
