Santa Monica / Westside, Los Angeles –
A unique lounge catering to local young professionals, the sleek and classy Copa d’Oro offers “market cocktails” – custom drinks for which the well-heeled patrons choose their own ingredients.
The warm décor of brick walls, chocolate leather couches, tasteful beach-themed artwork, and rich wood accents creates a welcoming environment for the small groups gathered at pub tables, while the long bar offers plenty of space for flirty singles to mingle as they peruse the list of ingredients fresh from the farmers’ market or wait for the mixologists to work their magic.
A popular Happy Hour draws birthday parties, tourists, and an after-work contingent eager to pack into the front booths to unwind over some high-end spirits and an appetizer or two.
While Copa d’Oro isn’t a spot for rowdy drunkenness, it does have a carefree vibe that makes it a great choice for couples, friends, and cocktail connoisseurs looking for made-to-order drinks in a relaxed and social atmosphere.
