Jason Momoa & Aaron Paul Kick Off Night Market At The Bungalow Santa Monica

Thirsty Thursdays.

On June 6, Night Market at The Bungalow Santa Monica kicked off its summer series as guests stopped by to enjoy some of LA’s favorite restaurants, sip on specialty cocktails and vibe to music.

Aquaman 2 actor Jason Momoa brought his very own Meili Vodka to Night Market where guests were able to personally experience crafted cocktails directly from Jason.

Breaking Bad actor Aaron Paul also came by Night Market at The Bungalow Santa Monica with his own Dos Hombres Mezcal, mixing cocktails as guests lined up for a chance to have their photo taken with Paul. He was seen passing out shots of mezcal and mingling with guests, and even a bird. The two stopped by one another’s pop up bar laughing, chatting and taking selfies with one another.

Later in the evening, the crowd went wild as Momoa joined his band ÖOF TATATÁ to cover “Voodoo Child” by Jimi Hendrix and play their first song “I Am Aries” on his bass accessorized by scrunchies.

Locals, families and tourists alike were able to enjoy beloved LA staples throughout the night such as The Boiling Crab, The Lonely Oyster, Tacos 1986, House of Empanadas, URBN Pizza, Fig/Soko, and The Bungalow’s Steamin’ Burger, as well as sweets from Good Times Ice Cream.
