Esters is a member of the Rustic Canyon Family of restaurants – a partnership between Josh Loeb & Zoe Nathan and Rustic Canyon restaurant’s wine director, Kathryn Coker, and her husband, Tug. It’s a cozy, yet stylish, Santa Monica wine shop and bar where you can come for a glass of champagne and a bite to eat, buy a special bottle for a friend, stock your wine cellar or all of the above. Tucked inside a beautifully refurbished 1937 Art Deco building, our retail area features floor to ceiling racks of wine focused on smaller producers (whose stories we know and love) as well as a separate room for high-end finds to add to your private collection. We offer a full menu that changes seasonally, with a delicious array of meats and cheeses created and curated by Chef Jeremy Fox (Rustic Canyon). Grab-n-Go options include house-made sandwiches, loaves of fresh baked bread from Milo & Olive, and a handful of specialty products from friends and suppliers whose work inspires us. Join us at our bar or on our patio for a bite to eat and a great glass wine, classic stirred cocktail, or artisanal beer. Or come by and shop for your next wine and cheese party. We look forward to having you!
