The Bar Sets the Bar

We partner with the many local wineries of the region, many of which are in our own backyard. Start your night with a drink and light bites before venturing out to explore the Funk Zone’s evolving restaurant and bar scene, just steps from Blackbird.

Modern Icon

This iconic AD100 Martyn Lawrence Bullard designed space is visually striking yet comfortable and inviting. Red and black tiles sweep the floor, while modern chandeliers fall from the night black ceiling, generating an inviting glow over the tables and elongated bar.

Goats in Trees?

We didn't make this up. In Southwest Morocco, goats grow on trees. Perched upon the branches of Argania trees, they absentmindedly munch on fruits and leaves. These playful climbers are inspiration for our distinctly different take on good food with a Moroccan twist.

 

Daily Brunch, Until 2pm

For the ultimate Goat Tree experience, sleep in and stroll your way through for an indulgent brunch that will fill you up and make you feel brand new after a proper night out in Santa Barbara’s Funk Zone. Brunch 7:00AM - 2:00PM Daily, with live music at Sunday brunch.

 

Perfect for Picnics

Goat Tree Market features a curated and build-your-own picnic basket program, with local offerings that are perfect for a picnic on the beach or for the train back home. Grab a sandwich, snacks, and drinks, and take lunch or an anywhere snack in a picnic basket ready for adventure.

Library Bar

In the simplest terms, djinn are genies. However, to reduce them down to a cartoon image would merely scratch the surface of their role in Moroccan lore. Djinn are mischievous spirits - not necessarily good, not necessarily bad. Some are confined to a bottle due to reprehensible acts, though the word’s similarity to a bottle of mischievous alcohol that causes one to commit reprehensible acts is merely a coincidence . . . or is it? Taste our one-of-a-kind cocktails and learn for yourself what happens next at this Santa Barbara bar.
