About us

About us

Social Hour is the inspiration of Karen & Eric Baymiller, a fun-loving couple with a passion for entertaining.  After relocating to Carmel from the Bay Area in 2020, these empty-nesters have embarked on a new adventure with the opening of their unique, cocktail-focused retail store in California’s iconic beach town, Carmel-by-the-Sea. Social Hour is a can’t-miss stop on anyone’s checklist — a place to discover unique products and experiences around the ritual of sharing cocktails and gathering together.
