This past weekend, the Hollyscoop gals made a walk down memory lane and headed up north to visit their college the University of California Santa Barbara. UCSB is located in the party community of Isla Vista on a cliff top. It was great to be back and visit old friends. Although the occasion was a goodbye party for a fellow friend who is moving to NYC, that didn’t stop us from bringing you the scoop on SB.
While in SB we heard Britney Spears was in town, unfortunately we did not bump into her or tatter tot. Santa Barbara is known to cater many celebrities. A very big celebrity spot in SB is the Bacara resort where anyone from Britney Spears, Mischa Barton to Leann Rimes have all stayed there. If you’re into wine tasting, SB has the best wineries in the country, as seen in the film “Sideways”. If you want to dine and spot celebrities, then head down to “Luckys” in Montecito and don’t be alarmed if Oprah is next to you. A Hollyscoop local joint to have the best Mexican food is “Freebirds” which is open 24/7 and the lines are never ending. If you are in town and forget to stop by Bagel café for breakfast, then you are committing a sin.
The nightlife in SB is fun and easy. Most of the bars and clubs are located on State Street, hence it’s very easy to bar hop. If you are into bars stop by the popular Irish pub O’Malley’s owned by Michael Jordan. If you’re in the mood to party, you must check out Tonic and Indochine. Overall SB is a great place to check out beautiful sceneries, have great food and party hop. That’s the scoop on Santa Barbara!
