Best Santa Barbara Bars

Here we offer our best drink pairing menu–but note the pairing is a perfect day enjoying the outdoors paired with some of the best places to get a drink in Santa Barbara (and Ventura!).

  1. Brophy Brothers + Sunset Kayak Tour
Don’t miss the view from Brophy Brothers’ patio! It’s the perfect location to grab dinner after a Sunset Kayak Tour in the Santa Barbara Harbor while you catch the last rays of sun on the mountains.

2. Topa Topa Brewery + Fun Paddle

Take your time in the Waterline, a collection of breweries, wineries, and restaurants all packed into the heart of Santa Barbara’s Funkzone. There’s plenty to do here, and it’s within walking distance of a Fun Paddle Tour in the Santa Barbara Harbor. We love Topa Topa Brewery for it’s commitment to the environment; it’s a 1% for the Planet Company.

3. Shaker Mill Cocktails / Modern Times Beer + Mountains to Shore Cycling Tour

As you cruise through downtown Santa Barbara at the end of the Mountains to Shore Biking Tour, take note of “Kim’s Service Center,” a.k.a. home to some of the best beer and cocktails you can find under the same roof.

4. Leashless Brewing + Channel Islands Kayaking

After a long day of exploring Channel Islands National Park via kayak, head over to Leashless Brewing in Ventura, where they have gluten-free beer and plenty more brews on tap to satisfy your cravings!

5. Cold Springs Tavern + Wine Tour

Tucked along the historic stagecoach route to Santa Barbara, the tavern is authentic in every sense. Stop by on Sundays for the weekly tri-tip bbq! Our Wine Tour drivers are happy to drop you off at Cold Springs Tavern on the way back to town.
