WHAT BUSINESSES ARE DOING
OPAL RESTAURANT AND BAR
During the Coronavirus Crisis, its heartening that every business that remains open is committed to doing so safely, and opal restaurant and bar is no
exception, incorporating every new requirement immediately into its operations.
They are offering takeout curbside service every night from 5-8pm, and have also added delivery service from Restaurant Connection, Doordash, and Grubhub. Their limited takeout menu ensures everything is fresh, and new regulations allow them to serve cocktails, beer, and wine to go as well. If ordered directly from them and picked up, all food and cocktails are 10% off, and wine or beer to go is 30% off, with pricing for wines over $100 negotiable.
Their takeout menu is shown on their website, opalrestaurantandbar.com. To arrange a pickup directly from opal, please call 805 966 9676 from 5pm on, to leave an order within 15-20 minutes of when you want to pick up. Unless otherwise requested they will take your credit card information over the phone so you will not need to sign anything. Any gratuities will go into their opal staff relief fund for those they had to lay off temporarily during this emergency.
We’re so grateful to have the support of our Santa Barbara community and other hospitality businesses during this time of unprecedently adversity. Teaming up with Shaker Mill, The Good Lion, and Test Pilot has enabled us to consolidate operations in a way that allows us to be open for take-out and delivery despite the heavy revenue decrease from impacts of COVID-19. We will continue to listen to feedback from the community to keep our menu fresh and exciting while doing our part to keep the community safe through proper sanitization and social distancing procedures. Thank you to everyone for the support!

GOOD LION/SHAKER MILL/TEST PILOT
As we all suffer and strive to survive this global pandemic, it's difficult to call any measures we (or any other struggling small restaurants/bar) as a business are taking during this time, a 'success'. What we are doing though, is working incredibly hard to adhere to the best safety/sanitary practices while fighting to ensure our business' survival. The hospitality industry is amongst the most hard hit during this global health crisis, and we all need your support. Many thanks to the State of California and specifically the ABC for allowing us, and other restaurants to offer cocktails to-go. This loosening of the rules has allowed us to take a small sting off the large sting that this crisis has forced upon us. We think that it's glorious that cocktails to-go are a thing now, and appreciate each and every cocktail you, our lovely Santa Barbarans', drink. Stay tuned for our daily rotating cocktail list, and stay classy, stay safe, Santa Barbara. You can order cocktails and cuban food at shakermillsb.com and follow us on social media for the most up to date information @shakermillsb
