The Beachside Bar-Cafe Is Closing for Good

••• The Beachside Bar Cafe in Goleta is closing after 36 years. From the announcement:

We want to thank our local community for your support and patronage through these ever changing times. It is because of YOU that we had so much success in the 36 long years of business. We share an ethereal love for our customers and have memories that we will cherish forever.

From the bottom of our hearts we are forever grateful for your support through the years. Thank you.
