feels more like a bar than anything because in some areas, you're almost shoulder to shoulder with people, kind of like how it is at a club, except half the area is outdoors. It's walkable distance from the beach, so you walk there to sober up if you decide to. Drinks are average bar prices,

Love this place! Very young and has that beachy club vibe. The music and vibe are fantastic for a nice night out in Santa Monica. I've been here many times to celebrate friends' birthdays and enjoy some drinks along the beach. Definitely recommend!

This venue is an oasis. Local watering hole on the water. If you come on Saturday afternoon, get in by 3PM to beat the long line to get in. Always crowded but always fun. So many different rooms and little outdoor sections. Definite try and catch the sunset from here.

Cute place for day drinking and looking out at the ocean. The food is good and so are the cocktails. Very trendy.

Imagine yourself in a multi-million dollar house party filled with very attractive people, in California weather and chill music. That is what The Bungalow is like. Great place - very unique.

Sprawling outdoor bar populated by Hollywood elite. The people who frequent this bar are not the best, but the drinks are awesome. Warning: super expensive, but its part of the experience.

The Bungalow is an awesome bar/restaurant and perfect spot for a date, people watching, or just socializing with "the in" crowd of SoCal!  Located on the ocean with killer panaromic cliff views! This place is a must see!

I love this place but it is definitely more fun when you are single! Drinks are a bit pricey and the lines can get really long if you go on a weekend/weekday so make sure that you arrive early.

It's a great venue, a lot of beautiful people and an amazing ambience. The location is very good, close to the pier and always a good beer to fit your mood

My favorite place in Santa Monica! It is a really different lounge, good environment and amazing people! In the weekends arrive early, or you will have a long line to wait.

Near impossible to get in after 9:30pm. If you can get in before then, it is well worth it. Many rooms to chill and chat with strangers or friends with Pool and table tennis and 4 different bars. Santa Monica's beautiful elite frequent here on Friday and Saturday nights.

Typical advice: dress to impress.

I went to Bungalow Saturday night, and it was a good choice. The place is very comfortable and there are many nice people there. Very good and fancy place to go.

If you're looking for a chic and busy hangout spot, come to The Bungalow. Great for large groups and company outings. Beautiful decor and spectacular view of the ocean-especially if you come at sunset.

No happy hour.
