The Circle Bar

main street santa monica since 1949

From Jim Morrison and Truman Capote to today's contemporaries, Circle Bar continues to attract the most vibrant and diverse crowd on the West Side with DJ's and dancing every night of the week.

With careful attention to detail, Circle Bar has made vast improvements to the decor, ambiance, music, and most importantly, service. What makes the Circle Bar unique is that it outlives trends that come and go. With the same floor plan since it opened in 1949, patrons know what to expect when they arrive - a really good time.  The neighborhood may change, the music here and there, but the spirit of Circle Bar will live forever.

Many generations return to Circle Bar whether they met their mate there, had a birthday bash or simply stopped in while passing through.  By embracing our nostalgia, our heritage and commitment to good service, Circle Bar remains a vibrant nightclub destination in LA.

Quite simply, The Circle Bar is legendary.
