Delighting Santa Monica patrons for the last half-century, Chez Jay is not only an institution, but a registered Santa Monica Landmark. It's known for its crowds of Hollywood's rich and famous who have graced the charismatic bar with their presence. The Beach Boys, Marilyn Monroe, Michelle Pfeiffer are just a few of the names that could be dropped in relation to Chez Jay. From the genuine neon sign to the crunch of peanut shells underfoot, there are no frills here, just good service and good drinks. You'll be unexpectedly charmed by the checkered tablecloths and red vinyl booths and happily satisfied with an ice cold cocktail and a round of steamed clams.
