In the land of nauseating bro bars and overpriced rooftop patios, The Gaslite remains one of Santa Monica’s best and most authentic places to let go. The name of the game at this den of debauchery is karaoke. Not to mention the free popcorn and a dance floor that gets wild in a hurry. So skip the scene and the long lines at a bar you don’t want to be at anyway, and go experience the dive bar of your dreams.
