Wine, Dine and I Do: Your Wedding at Santa Monica's Esters

From: Winter 2016-2017 edition

Toast to your wedding in style at Santa Monica’s Esters (from the esteemed Rustic Canyon Family of Restaurants), which has begun booking private events. Perfect for receptions, bridal showers, and engagement parties, the wine bar and marketplace, located in a beautiful 1937 Art Déco building, boasts floor-to-ceiling walls lined with wine and beer bottles as well as a cozy outdoor patio. The stylish spot features more than 250 wines with a strong focus on boutique producers pared with a menu of seasonal small plates from Rustic Canyon’s award-winning Chef Jeremy Fox. Options include private wine tastings and cocktails hours that are ideal for smaller groups of bridal showers and bachelor parties while larger parties (up to 90 guests) can takeover the sidewalk patio or buyout the entire shop and bar space.
