Herringbone is a pricey seafood spot blocks from the ocean in Santa Monica. The food is perfectly fine, but also not the reason you're here. You're at Herringbone for their daily oyster happy hour ($1 oysters from 4-7pm), solid cocktails, and bottomless brunch. For the latter, there are mimosa and rosé options to keep you going through a brunch of excellent people watching.
