Location Spotlight: The Loft
Located in Santa Barbara’s “Funk Zone,” The Loft provides a unique industrial setting for a wide range of events and receptions. The space features an upstairs loft, downstairs open area, and bar that can be decorated and transformed to fit the needs of your event. Perhaps the most striking feature of The Loft is the local artwork, which can be used as much or as little as desired. By combining the raw talent of the artists with the beach setting, The Loft truly captures the essence of the Santa Barbara “Funk Zone.” The site owners are very easy-going and excited to share their space, as well as offer their insider connections to the best vendors and services in town. If you are looking for an artsy, hole-in-the-wall with modern and inner city allure, The Loft is perfect for your event.
