American Comfort Food with Asian Roots at The Charleston

Santa Monica has a new play pen. Welcome to the Westside’s fun and sexy, 1930’s-style lounge concept, The Charleston. Since it’s opening in march, the locals have definitely made themselves at home here. The venue lacks the touristy fog that Santa Monica often falls victim to.

The Charleston’s gives you a dimly lit intimate dinning experience as well as a boisterous yet classy cocktail atmosphere, depending on the time of night. With art-deco fixtures, crushed velvet accents, and flapper inspired paintings, it’s as if you’ve taken a time machine back to the days of bobbed hair and prohibition.

Cucumber Cooler

On any given night you can catch a live DJ, cabaret, jazz singers, comedy or even karaoke. This nightlife venue has been graced by the presence of A-listers and top-shelf talent alike.

What’s so unique about the Charleston, save from other bars, is the amazing food. Although the drinks are also quite superior. The quality of gourmet expertise is phenomenal.

Bacon Wrapped Dates

Chef Jet Tila, Who’s been features on an abundance of  television shows including, Iron Chef America, The Best of, Food Finds, and Take Home Chef, has managed to infuse his asian roots into the likes of american comfort food, in the form of shared plates. From the savory sweet bacon wrapped dates, to the well-seasoned pork belly boa buns, the food is shockingly amazing, but for those who are truly in the know, Chef Jet’s exclusive, drunken noodles, an off menu secret, will leave you coming back for more of this tender, sweet, spicy mouthwatering pasta. So toss on your favorite dancing shoes, and jitterbug on over.
