Shopping Santa Monica Place:
What to Know

Santa Monica Place is an open-air shopping and dining venue located at the southern end of the Third Street Promenade, two blocks from the beach and iconic Santa Monica Pier. 

The 475,000-square-foot shopping mall spans three levels, and is anchored by Bloomingdales, an innovative Nordstrom concept store, and is home to myriad restaurants and entertainment venues.

The luxe Santa Monica Place shopping center is home to more than 98 stores, including luxury brands Rolex, Louis Vuitton, and Tiffany & Co

The Place for Fun, Fashion and Food

The mall is one of the best places in Santa Monica to eat, shop, hang out, and people-watch in Southern California.

And large enough to spend an entire day exploring its three floors - and that's before you get to the dining deck!

Entertainment venues include ArcLight Cinemas and the new Cayton Children's Museum.

The rooftop Dining Deck and indoor/outdoor food and an indoor/outdoor food court anchored by The Cheesecake Factory and Sonoma Wine Garden.
