BUSBY’S WEST3110 Santa Monica Blvd Santa Monica CA 90404
This weekend, organize your crew, dress sharp, and head to Busby’s West for the quintessential sports night. The local feel of this popular sports bar makes it easy to hang with your friends while catching up over cold beer and hot food. On the latter, it’s more than just drab pub grub here. The stakes are raised with, well, steaks. The house filet mignon is one of the best in town for the price, and the baby back ribs fall right off the bone. The owners have been in the bar biz for decades, and the love of their craft comes through with every pour off the 10 taps locked and loaded with both major domestic lagers (this is a sports bar, after all) as well as smaller-batch craft brews. Naturally, there are multiple TV’s showing the big game–as well as some of the smaller games games–but if you’re not impressed by the action on the field of play, you’ll find plenty right where you’re standing. There’s definitely a scene here, so come with a mindset ready to mix it up with eager Westsiders sharing one goal—having a good time. After filling up on tasty grub and crisp brews, get ready to dance. The DJs at Busby’s always spin a mix that gets the crowd going. If you need to switch it up, hit the back rooms for games like billiards, shuffle board, or foosball. They’re all free, so you have extra coin to buy the next round for your new friends. Need some air to cool off and chat? They’ve got outdoor patios. At Busby’s, you’ve got all the makings of the perfect night.
