The Bungalow

With the feel of a swanky surfer shack, this convivial den at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows is tricked out with Ping-Pong and billiards tables and a fire pit. From a stool at The Bungalow’s outdoor bar, sip top-shelf house margaritas and gaze at the rolling tide in the distance.
