Coastal Flavors & Poolside Vibes
Welcome to Sugar Palm Santa Monica at Viceroy Santa Monica, the ultimate indoor and outdoor coastal dining concept with the laid-back fun and sun of Southern California. This is a place for sipping cocktails by the pool, working quietly in the lounge, meeting friends for a meal, and getting social in the evenings. The menus are full of captivating culinary creations, the drinks are a celebration of modern mixology, and the design features inviting spaces for any occasion.
Partially open to the outdoors, the stylish dining room is enhanced by natural light and ocean breezes. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the space offers a wide variety of seating options, from private banquettes to communal tables. The décor is equally impressive, with eye-catching antiques, vintage artifacts, and a stunning art collection featuring original abstract paintings by LA’s own Monica Perez.
With the fresh ocean breeze sifting in the front doors and warm, natural light spilling in from every angle, the lounge is where relaxation comes easy. Grab a couch or barstool to simply unwind or get work done. There are plenty of charging stations, and food and drinks are available within steps at our bar and café. The inspiring setting is highlighted by original abstract art by LA’s own Monica Perez.
Stretching from the indoor lounge out onto the open-air terrace, this expansive bar is a stylish place to sip the day or night away. The star of the show is the drinks selection, with premium beers, wines, and spirits on display and a tempting array of signature cocktails on offer. Pair your beverages with light bites from the locally inspired menu for a truly indulgent experience.
Just steps from the pool, our private pool cabanas comfortably seat four to six guests each and offer inspired food and drink options for adults and kids alike. Grab a bite, sip a handcrafted cocktail, order bottle service, or enjoy a cup of coffee in a vibrant poolside setting. Each cabana includes a heater, adjustable mood lighting, flat-screen TV, and plenty of power outlets.
Open to the ocean breeze and the Southern California sunshine, the outdoor terrace is perfect for lounging and dining. Enjoy the lovely, laid-back ambience over coffee, drinks, or light bites, or get comfortable and savor a multi-course meal. Lush gardens, cozy firepits, and Evelyn Leigh’s vibrant and striking mural, Ijeoma, all set a stylish scene perfect for selfies and social-media moments.
Enjoy your daily caffeine fix at our Café featuring signature blends of beans roasted by our partners at Groundwork Coffee. Grab your cup to go, to unwind with on the terrace, or to power you through morning meetings at Sugar Palm. You'll also find a tempting selection of fresh pastries and baked goods to pair with your beverage.
ABOUT GROUNDWORK COFFEE
In 1990 Groundwork opened its doors in Venice Beach, CA with a small-batch roaster and a big mission: to source and share the very best organic coffee they could find. Demand grew quickly, and they started roasting coffee 24/7 out of their tiny café on Rose Avenue to keep up. Now, nearly 30 years later, they have a growing line of whole bean and cold brew coffee and two very busy roasting facilities in Los Angeles and Portland. Our sustainable, relationship-based, organic coffee sourcing continues to set an industry standard, as does their solar-powered, low-emissions roasting technology. Being Organic is at the core of who Groundwork is. Not only does Organic benefit the end consumer, but it poses an enormous advantage for their growing partners at origin. By removing all pesticides from the growing process, the growers and their families will have cleaner water, better health, and improved working environments. Groundwork deeply value their partnerships at origin and are participating in various environmental/sustainability projects around the world to continuously improve the lives of the farmers and their families.
