Venue CategoryIrish pub in Santa Monica
For a weekday lunch, weekend breakfast, to watch Boston sports, or for a fun and chill time out in Santa Monica, have fun at Sonny McClean's, named after a friendly Irish Bostonian who fought in World War II (grandfather to the pub's founder). The sports-friendly pub features mainly Boston games, but with over 20 televisions, they may be generous enough to put the Dodgers, Lakers, or Kings on. Sports memorabilia for the Celtics and Sox hang neatly on the walls. In a nutshell, Sonny's is a spacious venue with plenty of seating, but still manages to sustain that cozy pub-like feel patrons love. On karaoke and music nights, the bar's vibe becomes lively and friendly. Bartender, servers and cooks work hard to get you quick but good quality food, and stiff drinks. Darts, live bands, and acoustic nights provide enough entertainment for us all. While St. Patty's Day is special for all Irish pubs, Sonny's is taking it to the next level. The weekend menu includes corned beef specials and Irish stew, just to name a few. Best of all, there will be Irish bands and a beer garden morning through night, throughout the weekend. Be sure to sport your Sox shirt or a festive green tee to show off your spirit. The pub will open at 9am on St. Patty's, and feature a special menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Try the Irish potatoes with corned beef and lime-infused creme to coat your tummy before the day's festivities.
Review By Danielle Lenglet
Sonny McClean, born in 1914, was known as a true Irishman, a war hero, and a storyteller. He is the owner's grandfather. Open Mic nights at Sonny's have produced some local music favorites. Foods are made with fresh ingredients; dishes are a mix of Irish,
The free Wi-fi is great for patrons who come for lunch. The venue offers green pub t-shirts each St. Patty’s day, and regular pub shirts online. The extensive beer selection includes Cali-IPAs and Venice Beach born brews. Ask about the herb bitters, and which drinks they mix well with.

It's time for you and your crew to get funky this weekend and enjoy an ice cold California beer from Hollywood's artsy neighborhood bar, District 13.
Perched upon the water like a boat at sea, a drink at Duke's of Malibu will make you feel as though you may just float away.
The Parlour Room is everything a local yearns for in a bar. The specialty cocktails are excellent and inventive. The inside is reminiscent of Old Hollywood charm and the outdoor ideal for a date by burning brick fireplace.
