The bar scene in Santa Monica is eclectic, ranging from high-end hotel bars to dilapidated dives. Too often, new establishments cater to tourists with uninspired drink lists and inflated prices, leaving locals to frequent the same old haunts. Guest Room, a speakeasy-style bar that opened above Estate Bar + Restaurant in October, is a welcome addition for thirsty Westside residents. Unlike most modern speakeasies — secret venues inspired by Prohibition that piggyback onto existing bars and restaurants — Guest Room enjoys its own roomy level above Estate Restaurant on Wilshire Boulevard, in the former Parlor sports bar. It’s still easy to miss the door though; look for the knob on the right of the sepia seaside mural before you enter the restaurant.
