The Good Lion

Your neighborhood cocktail bar.

The Good Lion is a contemporary Santa Barbara cocktail bar. Our intimate space's design is inspired by the 'American Riviera', city of Santa Barbara as well as coastal South-West Europe and Mediterranean Africa.

Reflective of it's place as one of the country's finest agricultural producers, the beverage program features a weekly rotating cocktail menu featuring the Central Coast's finest fruits, herbs, spices, and produce. We also feature a small list of California craft beers and local natural wines.

Our friends and neighbors at Sama Sama restaurant have created a small plates food menu which is served every night at The Good Lion.

We are thrilled to be the first craft cocktail bar on the Central Coast to be a certified Green Business by the California Green Business Program. Keep in touch to see updates and examples of our sustainable practices!
