Like many dining establishments, the Treehouse Restaurant at 3860 State Street closed their doors in April 2020 when new COVID-19 rules went into effect. Unlike most, they never returned. On Halloween I visited Santa Barbara’s permanent ghost town, also known at La Cumbre Plaza, and, while leaving the parking lot, I saw a for-lease sign in front of the former Treehouse space. The sign specifically mentioned that they are looking for a restaurant tenant for the 1966 sqft space. So apparently a new restaurant will not be happening in the immediate future, but their is hope.

    Sign has been there for weeks, if not months.

    $16K a month for a beat up old restaurant space. Good luck!

    Online listing says 3966 SF which is double the 1966 SF mentioned above.

    Maybe that includes the bar and outside area.

    Can’t wait for the return of the “Twig Room”.
