    • The Good Bar - 5650 Calle Real, Goleta

    Please join us as we return to a favorite on the TGIF tour,  The Good Bar at the Goodland Hotel.

    A Kimpton hotel, The Goodland has a spirited bar that is a place to mix, mingle and enjoy the flip flop-friendly boutique style we call home. They are shaking things up in the Good Bar, an intimate, laidback lounge designed to invite you in and let the good times roll with a billiards table, backgammon boards and a coastal cool soundtrack. This is where spirits including premium whiskey, tequila and mezcal are mixed with local ingredients like lavender and mint to create notoriously delicious cocktails. There are also local craft beers and wines from vineyards just a cork's throw away, all served by bartenders and staff that know how to help you celebrate the good life.
