One Pico, the ocean-view restaurant at Shutters on the Beach in Santa Monica, has a small bar in the front of the restaurant. It’s a charming little nook with bottles neatly arranged on glass shelves that sparkle against the whitewashed walls. The bar seats about six people on leather-topped bar stools. The bar offers seasonal signature cocktails like the Sparkling Grape with St. Germain Elderflower liqueur, prosecco and grapes or the Cucumber Splash spiked with Hendrick’s gin and lime. We especially enjoyed the spicy margarita with Corzo silver tequila, agave nectar, jalapeño and lime. You can also sip a pre- or post-meal cocktail in lobby of the hotel. The giant living room-like space at Shutters on the Beach includes plush sofas, a fireplace and live jazz on many nights.
