Pearl Social gives a nod to the celebrated first lady of Santa Barbara, Pearl Chase, a community activist who worked tirelessly on the historic preservation and beautification of the popular coastal city. Pearl Social is a romantic, intimate cocktail bar, where people come to celebrate. It is the perfect place to enjoy beautifully crafted and shared cocktails in vintage punch bowls. The menu is comprised of delicious small bites created by the original chef of The Lark, Jason Paluska. Chef Paluska has garnered numerous awards and international recognition for his Central Coast inspired, seasonal, locally sourced, and scratch-made menu. Pearl Social is the perfect venue for a lively cocktail reception!
