This Just In: Santa Monica Bar & Grille is now closed

The bleak economy has claimed yet another victim in bar land. Pico Boulevard’s Santa Monica Bar & Grille officially closed this week, according to its MySpace page. The live music venue was known for its Saturday night Brazilian-themed parties, and apparently booked a lot of live music (although I never did see a show there).

Regardless, it’s sad to see a staple of any scene go away.
