The new Hotel Californian at 36 State Street has what might be the best view in Santa Barbara at their rooftop overlooking Stearns Wharf. Fortunately it is not just for guests staying at the seaside resort. They have a new offering for the general public called Sunday Sessions running for the next 6 weeks. Hotel Californian has setup a lounge and DJ with a $20 cover so you can enjoy a view from the rooftop starting at 4pm. Food and drinks are available for purchase. The amazing view of the Santa Barbara waterfront from the towering Hotel Californian is a must-see. The entrance is just to the left of Finney’s Crafthouse & Kitchen.
