Sunburst Wine Bar Has Opened in Carpinteria

••• The folks from Kevin Moore Architect emailed about the new Sunburst wine bar in Carpinteria: “We wanted to share that Sunburst has opened at the corner of Carpinteria Avenue and Eugenia Place in Carpinteria. They offer wine and beer on tap as well as retail bottles and small bites. We worked with the owner and tenant for several years to take the former Sunburst Printing building, refurbish it and add a deck off the front.” The smaller photo is from before the redo.

More of what we already do. We have plans to bring together our vegan community, first responders, working adults, our friends, families, children, even our furry buddies. And of course, visitors of Santa Barbara. And yes, the menu is staying. We will only add more love to it. […] And since you already read this far, gotta tell you that our late night is back every Friday and Saturday till 2:30 a.m.” A subsequent post included the vegan options, which appear to be substantially expanded.
