Our new shop at Santa Monica Place opens today and in celebration we have gathered a few of our favorite hot spots nearby! Be sure to check them out and don’t forget to stop in for a wrap dress or three.
This boutique hotel and bar is a fine example of Streamline Moderne architecture. We love the views of the Pacific Ocean and the effortless Hollywood Glamour. The iconic rooftop bar and lounge, Suite 700, perched atop the hotel, is the perfect place to relax after a day of shopping!
Santa Monica Mountains
Diane loves to hike wherever she goes and the Santa Monica Mountains are no exception. From Escondido Falls in Malibu to Red Rock Canyon Park off of Old Topanga Canyon Road, there is plenty of nature to inspire.
Lo/Cal Coffee and Market
This cozy little coffee shop is the ideal spot for an afternoon pick-me-up. Coffee drinkers will appreciate the Stumptown cold brew on tap and the relaxed and effortless feel will please everyone.
Santa Monica Farmers’ Markets
With three different locations, we love how easy it is to find the best produce in Santa Monica. Pick up some fresh ingredients on a Saturday morning and try a recipe from our favorite Chef Jane Coxwell’s cookbook, Fresh, Happy, Tasty: An Adventure in 100 Recipes.
Blue Plate Oysterette
This casual little restaurant is ideal for delicious oysters and a chic beachy vibe. And of course we love any place that has the good sense to add avocado to a lobster roll.
This tried and tested hot spot is equally suited for dinner with the girls or a casual business lunch. Go for the pizza and stay for the ambiance.
