Welcome to the ultimate Living Room. It's yours to do as you please: meet a friend for a drink, relax and read the paper, or just enjoy the view. Treat it like home. You are. Your new Living Room comes with a view of the Pacific Ocean, the most comfortable couches, two fireplaces, an incredible art collection and live entertainment nearly every evening. Idle on with early morning coffee, light meals, afternoon tea, or a relaxing happy hour in Santa Monica. Casual meetings, first dates and night caps. It all happens here. Plus the heated Lobby Terrace takes you even closer to the ocean.
Wednesday Boîte brings the spirit of a cool French lounge to Shutters on the Beach every Wednesday from 6:00p.m. to 10:00p.m. DJ Harmony spins modern jazz grooves live while Tricia Alley's mixology team crafts cocktails from the freshest market ingredients. You will never have the same drink because every Wednesday there is a new custom-designed drink menu featuring one-of-a-kind creations mixed from our well-curated selection of top shelf and bespoke liquors & liqueurs. Wednesday | 6pm - 10pm
The backdrop may be of the Pacific Ocean and not the Mediterranean, but Thursday nights still take on a distinctly Italian complexion this summer in the Living Room. Lasting from 5pm to 9pm, come join us for a spirited night of delicious *aperitivos* —set to live jazz, of course—as well as hand-selected Italian vinos and craft cocktails. Your appetizer selection includes a mouthwatering array of Italian charcuterie, artisanal cheeses, and antipasti—from Salumi Nostrani to Piatto di Formaggi to Verdure Miste. Our sommelier will then be on hand to guide you through a distinguished menu of Italian wines by the glass, featuring whites and reds from exclusive regions the likes of Umbria, Campania, Tuscany, and Emilia-Romagna. Or, take the cocktail route and sample our aptly named *Cocktail Italiano*—a refreshing mix of Negroni, Americano, Bellini, Sgroppino, Pirlo, and Spritz Veneziano.
It's a tasty array of gourmet desserts, available through our "Sweets on Friday" menu from 2 to 6 pm. There are sweets, of course, from cakes like Pear Marzipan Tart and Chocolate Ganache to mini desserts like key lime pie and hazelnut crunch. But you'll also find some savory dinner appetizers, like smoked salmon torta or mini baguette bites with mozzarella, tomato, and basil. Best of all, it's a mecca of dessert drinks of all vintages and varieties. Keep it simple with a coffee or tea, or kick off your weekend with a craft cocktail- perhaps a Bellini or Honey Bubble Grand. "Sweets on Friday" is available from 2 to 6 pm on Fridays in the Lobby Lounge. Delicious to begin with, but even better when it's a Friday evening at the beach. View our dessert menu.
