Santa Barbara Bar Voted Best Bar 5 Years In A Row

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – October 19th, 2013 – SANTA BARBARA, CA – West beach Santa Barbara bar “The Neighborhood Bar” recently won the best Santa Barbara Bar as voted by the people in the Independent Magazine.  The Hood has  won the SB Readers’ Poll award five years in a row for best bar in Santa Barbara in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 & 2013.

If you’re a Santa Barbara local, you’ve probably heard of The Neighborhood Bar located on west beach at the corner of Bath and Montecito St. Known for its laid back atmosphere, you will find the best Santa Barbara nightlife at “The Hood.”

“When you think about it, there really aren’t a lot of big neighborhood bars,” said David Burkholder, who is currently beefing up his own through expansion and new construction. “They usually are very small with a small clique of people who go to them. Where we are and what we do makes everybody feel like this is their neighborhood bar. And some of the reasoning behind this was actually on purpose.  From the start, we were going to be unlike any other place. This award helps us feel like we’re doing the right thing.”

The Neighborhood Bar has something for everyone. It’s a favorite hangout spot among locals because of the close proximity to the beach, cheap drinks and casual environment. Tourists on Yelp and Trip Advisor report The Hood as one of the best people watching spots on west beach. You may see anything from stumbling old locals and hippies, to young girls and frat guys. The hood has a diverse crowd, from singles, couples, small groups, business owners to back hoe drivers, 21st birthday gatherings to softball pre and post game party people.

“We would like to thank our loyal hood fans for voting The Neighborhood Bar the best Santa Barbara Bar in the Independent Newspaper five years in a row.  We work hard to give the people what they want, and this kind of recognition is greatly appreciated by each of our hard working bar tenders and cooks.  We know that we would never have come this far without the support of our loyal hood fans,” said David Burkholder, owner.

About The Hood: Affordable, yet respectable Santa Barbara restaurants are not easy to find. The Neighborhood Bar is one of the best restaurants Santa Barbara has to offer. You’ll enjoy excellent food for an amazing price served up by the helpful and friendly staff. Visit the site at and join the Facebook page at

Santa Barbara Restaurants: Have a Blush Thanksgiving!

Join Us For An Unforgettable Santa Barbara Thanksgiving Dinner…

Thanksgiving is supposed to be a time when we gather with family and friends around a sumptuous meal to reminisce and give thanks for the abundance we have in our lives. In too many cases, though, the day turns into a frenetic burst of activity. There is a harried rush of cleaning and cooking, unmatched tables and chairs are set up in various rooms, and then everyone scatters to various activities while the host/hostess are left to clean up after the meal. It hardly allows time to really relax and enjoy each other’s company, and is certainly a strain on whoever is gracious enough to host.

With the holiday season rapidly approaching, many event planners and company owners are beginning to think about where they would like to hold their Santa Barbara holiday events. These gatherings can be important in so many ways. They can be used to thank clients for their support and business throughout the year, reward employees and vendors for a job well done, or just spend time together in a fun and relaxing environment. The choice of venue for a holiday event can make the difference between warm and cozy, or loud and festive.
