The farm-to-bar-cocktail aficionados now have another watering hole to call their own. The Good Lion is a dedicated cocktail lounge, and their focus is on making seasonal freshly crafted drinks using local and high-quality ingredients. Watching their skilled mixologists behind the bar is half the fun. Deciding what to order is the hard part. And because you’ll probably want a little nibble with your drink of choice, they have a menu of Spanish tapas that are artfully created by neighboring restaurant Sama Sama. The Good Lion also does events and can provide cocktail catering anywhere in Santa Barbara County.
The Good Lion is located at 1212 State St., Santa Barbara. Open 4pm–1am daily except major holidays. 805 845-8754; GoodLionCocktails.com
