Library Alehouse of Santa Monica is the consummate gastropub. Not only can you choose a beer from its 29 microbrews on tap, but you can also choose from plenty of tasty, well-priced lunch or dinner dishes as a complement. This cuisine-conscious tavern also offers an eclectic and unique selection of bottled beers from around the globe, like Rodenbach, Chimay Blue and Hefeweizen. In business since 1995, Library draws locals and non-locals alike. There is also an outdoor patio dining area.
