Step into vintage, Los Angeles glamour at this historic hotel situated along Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica. There’s no way you can walk past The Georgian‘s vibrant exterior without stopping to take in its grand turquoise and gold presentation. The restaurant and bar downstairs was originally a 1930s hot spot. Now it continues on as an elevated, art deco-inspired eatery (with rumors of the building supposedly being haunted).
The outdoor patio offers up impeccable views of the ocean, while the lobby dining room makes for a cozy spot for conversation. Rooms and suites also round out the vintage vibes with crisp décor featuring pops of color. If the property reminds you of a certain renowned filmmaker, you’re not alone. They’ve got the Accidentally Wes Anderson seal of approval. So if you’re looking for an aesthetically pleasing stay, or just a classic spot for a date night reservation, The Georgian is a Santa Monica must.

The Georgian Hotel Details:
You’ll absolutely want to book a reservation for the Restaurant at The Georgian. The lobby venue is intimate and comfy, making you feel like you’re having dinner in a close friend’s (ridiculously gorgeous) home. Sit outside on the patio to keep things light and airy, or inside for a more dimly lit experience. Their flavorful Focaccia is an essential starter and the Blue Prawns Alla Scampi are a necessary pick for seafood lovers. The Rigatoni Al Pomodoro is also a delicious pasta option (and vegan too).
They’ve got a great menu of signature cocktails, each bringing a unique flavor profile to your palate. The “Italian Sparrow” is a standout made with grappa, amontillado, and burnt honey bruto americano. The “Siren Song” is also a light and bubbly choice for the perfect afternoon refresher. Wine lovers will appreciate the robust wine list with a range of curated selections.
Guests can choose from Classic rooms, City Suites, Ocean Suites, or Penthouse Suites. If there’s any debate, you’ll definitely want to spring for an ocean view room. Nothing will compare to waking up with those gorgeous views of the Pacific.
The Georgian does the perfect job of mixing old world class with new world sparkle. The rounded bar design is a notably impressive part of the lobby interior, with seating reminiscent of Hollywood Golden Age jazz clubs. The color palette of the hotel itself taps into newer art deco trends while still maintaining its historic clandestine hideaway feel. In the restaurant, you’ll hear hushed conversations and light clinking of plates rather than lively mingling. In other words, an ideal destination for a special date night.
