The iconic blue Georgian Hotel on Santa Monica seafront has recently been refurbished with a really cool bright and colourful art deco aesthetic, they terrace at the front for dining, a cool lobby bar, and also a very cosy speakeasy bar downstairs, worth a visit for a pit stop if you are heading to Santa Monica pier!
