Brick + Mortar is definitely a sports bar, but unlike most others along Main Street, they appear to actually mop the floors here. The space is big and modern with a front patio and a bar food menu that’s better than anybody asked for. If you can’t find the place at first, it’s hidden away in a courtyard behind a Peet’s Coffee and a Ben & Jerry’s. Welcome to Santa Monica.
Brick + Mortar is permanently closed.
