The Bar Sets
Featuring a beverage-forward atmosphere with upscale cocktails and exclusive local wines, Blackbird Restaurant in Santa Barbara offers a comfortable and beautifully designed space at the center of the buzzing Funk Zone. We partner with many local wineries in 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.
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.
Make Blackbird yours for a night.
