The Marquee is a very comfortable, attractive bar located on State Street in downtown Santa Barbara. A major attraction is good live jazz on Thursday nights. The Marquee also has a very friendly and accomplished bartender named Scott.

If you're heading to a show at The Granada or the Arlington, or waiting for a spot at Arigato, Marquee is a perfect spot to grab a drink. The decor is very cool, and the drinks are really creative and high-end. The service can be a little slow sometimes, but it's worth it.
