Pearl Social-An Intimate Santa Barbara Cocktail & Dining Bar

Pearl Social is an intimate cocktail and music bar in Santa Barbara’s historic Funk Town. Pearl Social’s name gives a nod to the celebrated first lady of Santa Barbara, Pearl Chase, a community activist who worked tirelessly on the historic preservation and beautification of Santa Barbara.

Music is a nightly feature of Pearl Social. Live music echoes through the featuring jazz, blues, folk, rock, acoustic instrumental and vocal performances as well as DJs spinning favorite tunes.

Pearl Social inhabits the space behind The Lark. Deep leather couches and velvet chairs offer a cozy place to connect with your group or opt for the intimate outdoor section enveloped by vines and lush foliage. Curated cocktails and a light menu of snacks and entrees offer plenty to tide one over until your dinner reservation or for a well-deserved nightcap after a busy day in one of Santa Barbara’s most noteworthy neighborhoods.

Their noteworthy cocktails are curated by Gavin Koehn, a Santa Barbara local and long-time Acme alumnus. Starting his career in hospitality as a server at The Lark, Gavin quickly established himself as a cocktail prodigy and moved on to lead the beverage program at sister restaurant Loquita. A participating U.S.A. finalist in the Mediterranean Inspirations global cocktail competition held in Ibiza, Spain, Gavin brings his passion for Old World cocktails with modern twists to Pearl Social.

Pearl Social is intended to be a place of connection for our community to come together in a social and convivial atmosphere. With incredible food, innovative cocktails, and nightly music, Pearl Social is the place to be with friends or to meet new ones.
