15 Exciting Places to Eat and Drink in Santa Cruz

By Garrick Ramirez | Eater San Francisco

Your guide to eating and drinking your way through Santa Cruz. See you soon!

Since opening his Westside distillery in 2016, owner Sean Venus has racked up awards for his organic, small-batch spirits including single-malt whiskeys, California’s only blue agave spirits (they’d call them tequila if that term weren’t protected), and signature, floral gins that dial down the juniper for softer botanicals such as cardamom and citrus. The stylish tasting room welcomes guests to sample a flight of spirits, enjoy a freshly made cocktail, and, thanks to a 2018 state law, take home a bottle or two for the home bar.

We had a great time at the inaugural Old Growth Classic! This was the first bike race to ever take place in the iconic Big Basin Redwoods State Park. The riders enjoyed a weekend of racing, food, music, and of course…cocktails! Shoutout to Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz and Ibis for making it happen. Check out the awesome video and see you next year!
