The Good Lion

Your neighborhood cocktail bar.

- A contemporary neighborhood craft cocktail bar located in downtown Santa Barbara’s Theater & Arts district.  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 its place as one of the country's finest agricultural producers, the beverage program features a seasonal rotating cocktail menu featuring the Central Coast's finest fruits, herbs, spices, and produce. 
A few humble but proud accomplishments: 
-First craft cocktail bar on the Central Coast to be a certified Green Business by the California Green Business Program
-2017 Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Award winner 
-2019 Small Business of the year award from The Chamber of the Santa Barbara region
-Best place for Craft Cocktail in the Santa Barbara Independent awards four years in a row.
