Eater L.A. recognizes 23 cocktail bars—Santa Monica's Bar Chloe and SHOREbar among them—that it says are a "cut above" the rest.

2 Santa Monica Bars Named Among L.A.'s 'Best Looking'

Bar Chloe and SHOREbar, you're beautiful, it's true.

In Eater L.A.'s eyes, and ours, the two hip Santa Monica spots rank among the 23 " best looking" cocktail bars in Los Angeles.

But, hey, it's what's on the inside that counts, too. The online foodie publication selected bars not only for their aesthetics, but also their atmospheres and "respectable cocktail programs."

Recognized for its more casual vibe and "comfy chairs and a charming room," Bar Chloe got the No. 10 slot, below more famous haunts such as The Edison (No.1), The Standard Downtown (No. 7) and Bar Marmont (No. 8).

At No. 22 is SHOREbar for its "clean, beach-club feel straight out of Cape Cod."

Bar Chloe is at 1449 2nd St. SHOREbar is at 112 W. Channel Rd.
