Shore Hotel

I just booked a room at the Shore Hotel in Santa Monica and noticed afterwards that they don't have a bar/lounge/restaurant open. Where do you get your morning coffee? Any recent experiences? Any nice bars near by?

There's all sorts of restaurants on the 3rd St. Promenade (3rd St. from Broadway to Wilshire Blvd.) which starts only a few hundred feet from your hotel. You'll find the usual assortment of chain coffee places on the Promenade - Starbucks, Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, etc. I'd suggest a good breakfast spot nearby is La Pain Quotidien on Santa Monica Blvd. between 3rd and 4th St.

For bars, depends what you want - sports-bar'ish type places on the Promenade would include Yankee Doodles and Barney's Beanery. Some of the hotels nearby will have more upscale bars, like at the Shutters Hotel and the Casa Del Mar hotel. And the Penthouse at the Huntley Hotel is a great spot to get a drink around sunset time, as its atop the tall hotel and has great views.

I would not go to the Promenade for breakfast or for the bars, unless you want to hang out with other tourists. Go to breakfast where the locals go: Cora's Coffee Shop, Jinkys, Jack and Jill, Le Pain Quotidian. Your hotel will have maps and directions.

For bars, head to The Yard, Copa de Oro, Bar Pintxo, Penthouse at the Huntley, Chloe, and everything on the roof of the Santa Monica Place. Definitely avoid Yankee Doodles and Barneys Beanery!!!! Those are not upscale bars, ick.

The Shore is steps from many restaurants, bars, cafes.
