The wine list includes regional varietals by the bottle and glass. Orders may also be placed as room service, or for bar- or pool-side dining.
Cafe Bar - Across the hotel's main drive, the sunlight-filled bar is also a Montecito hot spot, especially in the early evening hours. Although it stays open later than the café, food service stops when the kitchen closes.
