Party Earth The Daily Pint Review

The Scene

The Daily Pint in Santa Monica, CA is a beer & whiskey dive with lots of fun bar games. Come drink and play in LA with Party Earth.

With a whiskey list running more than five hundred options deep, a daily rotation of craft beers, and more barroom games than a traveling carnival, The Daily Pint attracts fun lovers of every stripe in the mood for serious drinking and laid-back fun.

Chilled-out West Siders, college students, and thirty-something whiskey aficionados are all drawn inside, where vintage beer signs and a few random photographs account for most of the décor.

Long and narrow, the bar makes it easy for guests to get a peek at the multitude of drink options, including the special brew of the day, while those with cheap pints or ridiculously expensive scotches already in hand head back to where the party really gets going.

Pool tables, shuffleboard, foosball, and a large screen for karaoke leave just enough room to pack in the masses, with the noise level picking up as intense gaming showdowns gather steam. And in a display of brilliant design prowess, a small window to the bar allows pool hustlers and karaoke divas to grab a quick refill while keeping an eye on the shenanigans.

Weary revelers can snag a rest at a couple small tables, which become hot commodities on busy Friday and Saturday nights, but whether its patrons are sitting down, standing up, or dancing across the room belting 80s hits, The Daily Pint keeps everyone satisfied, from their first sip of vintage Scotch to the last note of Don’t Stop Believing.

Tip from Jonah:

Forgot to bring some food with you? Look for the sign near the bar advertising nearby pizza places that will deliver right to the Pint. They also regularly have food trucks outside Wednesday through Saturday nights.

  • Crowd

    Unpretentious partiers, local college kids, shuffle board and billiards enthusiasts, whiskey and craft beer lovers, and a melting pot of hipsters and frat boys, 20s to 40s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Karaoke machine that gets lots of use on Wednesday and Saturday nights, with a jukebox heavy on the classic rock to fill the void the rest of the week. Ten flat-screens tuned to sports. Foosball table, two pool tables, and shuffleboard.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    No food, but outside food can be brought in. Happy Hour M–Th, Sa–Su 2–6pm.

  • Prices

    Beer $4–$40, wine $8–$10, cocktails $6–$10, whiskey $11–$1600.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Casual: jeans, t-shirts, flannel, flip-flops, shorts, polos, jerseys, summer dresses, cute skirts.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Friday and Saturday nights for the biggest crowds, Wednesdays and Saturdays specifically for karaoke, or early in the week for a chill scene to try some new suds and spirits. Sunday mornings and Monday nights also tend to fill up during football season.

  • Close By

    Hungry Pocket Falafel House (1715 Pico Boulevard) has lots of cheap and quick eats for those looking to fill up before hitting The Daily Pint.

Awesome place to find some cool, unique beers and whiskeys!
Camille H. Mar 5, 2013
I am personally not a whiskey fan, but if you love it, this is the place to go! They have one of the biggest selections in LA with countless choices to pick from! The beer choices, which is what originally drew me into this bar, are amazing! It's impossible to go in there and not find a beer that you will love! They also have pool tables, shuffleboard, and good music to add to the joy of trying great beers! I would definitely suggest this bar to anyone looking for specialty beers and whiskeys, or just a cool place to kick back and enjoy a drink with some friends!
Best Beers Ever
Angelica A. Nov 15, 2012
The Daily Pint has some of the best selection of beers I have ever had the pleasure of encountering. Yes, given that I'm not a professional beer taster my opinion may not be worth much, but i've never been posed with such a hard decision when it comes to choosing from a beer list. This place is a small bar tucked away on Pico, and is has everything going for it. There are two rooms, the bar and a games room. You can play pool, shuffle board, and there's occasionally karaoke; but I love that you can stay on the bar side to avoid the noise if you want to just relax and talk to friends. This is a West Side gem, and is one of the few places I could see becoming my regular spot in the area.
One of the great spots for scotch lovers
Brent L. Oct 5, 2012
I am a huge scotch lover, so I am all about this place. The décor is nothing fancy, but it’s authenticity is pure. I’ve been here when it’s both quite vacant and quiet crowded, and I have to say that I prefer to come when it’s much more on the low key side. The bartenders are very knowledgeable and often let you do tastings of different scotches before settle on one to purchase as a drink. Also, this part of Pico is extremely easy to park, which is always an added bonus. If you want something a bit more sceney you should check out Air Conditioned down the street – but regardless, you’ll really like The Daily Pint. It’s worth a visit.
Best Bar!
Beth M. Sep 26, 2012
This is one of the easiest going bars in LA! They have a great array of different beers ranging from local microbrews, to domestic, to international --and all are great! They have shuffleboard which is the perfect place to meet people as you can ask just about anyone to play - and almost everyone will. They have giant screens for football lovers, they have pool tables, and even karaoke on Wednesday and Saturdays. Everyone is always friendly and whether you'd like a nightcap or a mid day drink - this is THE place to go. The overall vibe is laid back and easy going.
Favorite LA Bar
Nick G. Sep 20, 2012
The Daily Pint is far and away my favorite bar in LA. The drinks, the crowd, the games, the music all seem to suit any mood I might be in. Whether I feel like a low grade beer and tequila or a high grade scotch, The Daily Pint delivers. Its patrons vary in age from 21 to 50 and no matter the age everyone is happy to be at the Pint having a pull or two from their great bartenders. Perhaps one of the only bars in LA that has not yet been hit by pretension make this a must go whether you are a weathered LA local or new in town.
