Our Unique Santa Barbara Event Space Awaits

At The Wayfarer, we believe your event is what you make of it. From family reunion to corporate retreat to bachelorette to wedded bliss, The Wayfarer Santa Barbara is pleased to offer an experience that is all yours.

Nestled in the trendy Funk Zone neighborhood, The Wayfarer Santa Barbara offers 2 unique event spaces that beg to be brought to life with guest room blocks also available.

The Pool Deck

Soak in the sunshine and savor the sunset on our Pool Deck which can host up to 100 guests. Perched above State Street, our deck is ideal for celebrating and socializing whether it is a daytime birthday soiree, not-so-corporate networking, welcome reception, or rehearsal dinner. Outfitted with string lights, umbrellas, and lounge chairs, the rest is up to you. Browse our event photos below for inspiration.

The Kitchen

Come one, come all to the ultimate dinner party. Whether prepping a fun loving meal as a team, or craving an Executive Chef driven masterpiece, The Kitchen comes fully equipped. DIY your meal, invite a special guest to whip up some magic, or let us recommend a catering partner. Our more intimate space accommodates up to 40 guests, and is perfect for mixing and mingling. Brunch with the girls? Wine paired perfection? Let your creativity flow.
