Interior design Anacapa

Dark walls and cool, gray concrete contrast against oak millwork, soft, diffused lighting, and natural fibers.

Due to its location in downtown Santa Barbara, the hotel took cues from dense, urban spaces that challenge the typical warm beach atmosphere. The design draws inspiration from Drift’s roots in Baja and translates them to fit the context of Santa Barbara—with black painted walls, headboards constructed from repurposed redwood indigenous to California, and pops of brass accents dotted throughout the venue.

Architecture Anacapa

Baja minimalism in a repurposed 1920s building is driven by raw, natural materials with a handcrafted feel.

In a city known for its Spanish architecture, Drift Santa Barbara is reinventing the narrative with an emphasis on high design and uniqueness. The exterior follows the conventional Spanish style with glimpses of a modern interior, and an overall restrained design aesthetic that encourages travelers to venture outside and explore the beauty the city has to offer.

Food & Drink From Dawn to Dusk

At Dawn, the coffee shop, and Dusk, the tequila and raw bar, a foodie’s dream awaits.

Inspired by Californian surf culture, the bright and sunny Dawn serves up coffee, cold brews, espresso classics, and pastries from Helena Bakery, amid soft warm textiles and natural wood millwork. Dusk, meanwhile, stands in stark contrast—textured concrete walls create a moody and thoughtful bar atmosphere, with dark steel counters, raw wood tables and chairs, and unobtrusive moments of light. Enjoy oysters, ceviche, and guacamole while sipping on aromatic cocktails. With their street-facing facades, both venues reinforce an inviting sense of community.
