“Watched the Soccer Game and had a Great Time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014

We had the best time watching the USA versus Mexico at the Commons Ale House. Jack, the bar keep, turned all the TV's onto the soccer game and the crowd really got into the game. Good beer selection, and a really friendly crowd. Not a large place, and it's a friendly group, so we had good conversations around the bar easily.

BTW -- Jack is a great bar keep. He cheerfully charged phones for the patrons (seemed to have chargers for all types of phones), adroitly managed the one patron who was drunk and getting a bit obnoxious, participated in the soccer discussion, and was an all-around good guy.

Unfortunately I don't get to Santa Monica often. If this bar were near me it would be my regular hang out. Great place!
