    This place was PERFECT for my Bachelorette dinner the Friday before my wedding! Laura (the events manager) was super accommodating when we were finding a last minute location in Santa Monica - not an easy feat! Laura and Michael (the owner) immediately started getting the details together to make this night one that me and my bridesmaids/girlfriends would never forget! It was private, the perfect ambiance, great food, delicious and generous cocktails, and very quick service!

    Thank you again to Laura and Michael! It was the perfect spot to grab a bite, a drink, and prepare for a night of dancing and karaoke for my last bash!

    I can't believe it's been almost a year since our amazing wedding at Michael's! I'm still getting comments about how amazing this experience was. People are STILL talking about how great the food was and how elegant, yet relaxed, the entire evening was. I'm extremely pleased with how this all came together. Michael's (and Laura) were so accommodating and worked with us to create a night we'll remember forever.
