Drift Santa Barbara


Escape to Drift Santa Barbara, where the laid back, indoor/outdoor lifestyle of Santa Barbara fills our 45-room boutique hotel with an easy breeziness, combining classic California design with Drift’s modern aesthetic. Drift has accommodations for travelers of every kind, from the two-person Bunk to the expansive rooftop Drift Penthouse. In addition to rooms, Drift’s on-site coffee shop, Dawn, is inspired by SoCal’s vintage surf culture, and serves drip coffee, espresso-based classics, and a selection of grab-n-go items and locally made pastries. Drift’s on-site bar, Dusk, draws on our rich Mexican heritage, and serves beer, handcrafted cocktails, and a Baja-inspired raw bar.
