ANSWER

Some of you thought this neon martini glass sign belonged to other restaurant/bars. We received answers such as Tee Off on Upper State Street or Mel's on Carrillo Street. Sadly, it is not. This is a hidden martini glass on the side of Joe's Cafe neon sign at 536 State Street.

Hailed as the oldest restaurant in the city, Joe's Cafe opened in 1929 during Prohibition. The original location was down the block at 512 State Street. When Americans are able to drink again, legally, owner Joe Ferrario became a distributor of Acme Beer and the cafe was known as a “drinking man’s institution” by locals. According to the restaurant's history, Santa Barbara becomes a favorite spot for rum-running smugglers and rumors swirled that Joe’s Cafe was one of the area's first “speakeasies”

In 1985, Joe’s Cafe moved to the former home of Maggie McFly’s and it's current location at 536 State Street.
