Esters is a chic wine bar with some really great food, a massive, planet-friendly wine collection, thoughtful cocktails, and a beautifully curated shop with gourmet provisions and gifts in downtown Santa Monica. We’re like a neighborhood clubhouse with fun programming, and a relaxing place to drink, eat and socialize. A 2023 James Beard Semifinalist for “Outstanding Bar,” we also have a variety of seasonal cocktails and mocktails. Inspired by our favorite bistros and wine bars in Spain and France, our “little kitchen that could” whips up an all-day menu of farmers' market-driven dishes, snacks and cheeses that pair with wine, including a daily happy hour.
