    This will be one of my most fav places for afternoon cocktails. Trendy, amazing atmosphere, friendly people, awesome cocktails, and sunsets. The sangria was excellent. Great for mingling andgroups

    The "Kick in th Junk" cocktail is phenomenal! Try one or six. Play ping-pong with a stranger and please don't stare at your phone there is a lot of nice people here. Try new things!! #MezcalElSilencio

    Not a bar. A holidays house, close to the beach. Unique ambiance, interesting people and good drinks (bit pricey, ok). Enjoy a pool or tennis table game with strangers, the fire pit or just chill. GO!

    great place. nice music, cool people, great sangria. the only bad thing is that if you arrive after 9pm, be prepared to wait in line for at least an hour.

    Amazing place! A friend brought us there, and we were not expecting such a beautiful place with an incredible atmosphere. It felt like we were in a dream or in a movie! Worth going!

    Best new bar winner 2013. If we could translate CA culture into a cocktail, it would be this place: equal parts ocean view, killer music, a fire pit, lounge chairs, signature drinks & beautiful people Read more

    This place is amazing! The people who don't like it are just expecting too much. It's a bar that feels like a House party. It literally feels like ur at ur crazy aunts beach house. It's awesome :)

    I hate it, but I sort of love to hate it. Drinks are priced steep. Fun place to shoot pool or get an afternoon drink before the kinds gross crowd rolls in. Every finance bro's go to Tinder date spot.

    Fall in love that place ! Nive atmosphere, lovely live music, good drinks. In weekends you can wait for a long line but for the other day perfect choice to chill out.

    The trendy yet casual beachy vibe of The Bungalow keeps us coming back, not to mention they have VEEV in their INCREDIBLE Bitchin’ Sangria. It's always summer at The Bungalow.

    Sweet lounge spot. Lots of seating - couches/tables. has a few diff bars, ping pong tables, chill spot with quiet enough music to hold a conversation. Good vibes. I'll be back.

    A fun Friday night hangout with a beautiful outdoor setting and laid back vibe. Allows for good conversation, people watching, and some ping pong.

    Come here on a weeknight or day-time on the weekend to avoid the douchey crowd! Love the home-y feel of this place. They have billiards, too.

    If you haven't been here in a few months, they tore down all the inside walls where the restrooms are so there is a ton more space. There is also an inside bar. Hopefully no more epic lines!

    Perfect spot for drinks in the late afternoon after enjoying the beach. Also for late night drinks. But then you need to get dressed up

    The outdoor bar scene at the Fairmont Miramar is great! Play ping pong or sit on one of the couches and enjoy the views of the beach! –Tera L.

    Lines on the weekends, but easy to get in on a weeknight for a drink and pool, ping pong or sitting around the fire-pit.

    Very crowded but social atmosphere. Hard to get a drink. Long lineups but moved fast enough for a Sat night. Once you get past the inconveniences, you can have a fun night

    I was on the verge of tears by the time we arrived at Bungalow, since I was positive we wouldn't have a decent table. But we did, and relief washed over me in an awesome wave.

    Great ambiance. Many spaces to lounge. Get there early or risk waiting in line, particularly on weekend nights.

    They actually did a decent job creating a 'casual-douche' atmosphere. Hard to do. Bartenders are the hands down absolute slowest bitches you'll find. Cherish every moment. Enjoy.

    Crowded, semi-hip, mostly beautiful crowd. No cover and great location brings them in. $10 drinks keeps them there.

    Probably the best bar in SM, but you need to get there before 8 or it isn't worth waiting an hour in line.

    Cool venue space wise...but if you don't enjoy being amongst beautiful people who want to be seen, this probably won't be your crowd. It wasn't mine... But I was on my own...

    The menu has three drinks and three not-so-great food options. And no draft beer. Would be fine if the bartenders knew how to mix, but they don't. I don't get what they're trying to do.

    It's like stepping into a hollister commercial. Really cool place but get here before 7:30 to avoid waiting on line for an hour.

    Beautiful decor however drinks are very expensive. I had a $15 cocktail and the ingredients were not shaken up or stirred. Just awful to drink. They have a toilet near the entrance which are portables
