Ventura is an ode to the blending of tradition with modern affordances. Mark and Kathy Hartley set out to create a restaurant that follows this model. The Watermark is an extraordinary dining experience housed inside a building that dates back to the 1920s that has been transformed into a modern masterpiece. Throughout the restaurant and rooftop lounge one can easily find a synthesis of old and new. Priceless murals depicting the Camino Real from the 1920s embrace the tables below. Top shelf liquor and wine is housed in the original bank vault dating back to the late twenties and early thirties. Add a contemporary rooftop lounge with big views and the best entertainment around and you have your next memory of Ventura. Welcome to the Watermark.
