Santa Monica / Westside, Los Angeles –
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.
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.
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.
No food, but outside food can be brought in. Happy Hour M–Th, Sa–Su 2–6pm.
Beer $4–$40, wine $8–$10, cocktails $6–$10, whiskey $11–$1600.
Casual: jeans, t-shirts, flannel, flip-flops, shorts, polos, jerseys, summer dresses, cute skirts.
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.
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.
