    The Good Lion is a contemporary Santa Barbara cocktail bar. Our intimate space's design is inspired by the 'American Riviera', city of Santa Barbara as well as coastal South-West Europe and Mediterranean Africa.
    Reflective of it's place as one of the country's finest agricultural producers, the beverage program features a weekly rotating cocktail menu featuring the Central Coast's finest fruits, herbs, spices, and produce. We also feature a small list of California craft beers and local natural wines.
    We are thrilled to be the first craft cocktail bar on the Central Coast to be a certified Green Business by the California Green Business Program. Keep in touch to see updates and examples of our sustainable practices!
    Hey, we won a 2017 Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Award! We are honored and stoked!
