Remember how Loteria Santa Monica wanted to open up for Cinco de Mayo? "It was a fluke," Jimmy Shaw beamed, as he told us how he was actually able to open on Cinco de Mayo, if only for a few hours. "The permits came through at the last minute, so we opened up and served five tacos and five margaritas that afternoon." Shaw's wish came true, but because he still needed to train staff and do some hiring, Loteria Santa Monica closed up again last Saturday night so that his team could regroup. This upcoming Monday, May 14, Loteria Santa Monica opens up for good. The revamped space is full of the brands' colors and lottery ticket theme. There's a section for merch, a large back dining area and a full bar. Loteria Santa Monica will be open daily, starting next week.
