If you're a fan of chef Ray Garcia's cooking at Fig and a lover of some the nightlife, then this will be good news for you: Brent Bolthouse (Hyde Lounge, the Avalon, XIV, etc.) is officially opening the Bungalow lounge at the seaside Fairmont Miramar Hotel in Santa Monica tonight.

The Bungalow will have a more relaxed vibe than Bolthouse's previous projects, aiming to focus on a locals vibe rather than on bottle service and swank.

The space features rustic interior design inspired by Baja California, complete with ocean views, lush gardens, deck space, a game room and a patio space for relaxing. As for food, they'll be serving market-driven small bites and cocktails. Emphasis on the beverage menu is on mezcal, tequila, and sangria, sticking with the Latino theme. They'll also be toying around with housemade syrups and colonial drinking vinegars called shrubs, which have caught a second wind in L.A.'s cocktail scene as of late.

The Bungalow will be open to the public Tuesday through Saturday from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m., and Sunday from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m.
