The contemporary mix of stores, restaurants & artisan market are designed as inspiration for your individuality. Located two blocks from the beach and just steps from Third Street Promenade, there is so much to explore so get lost in everything about Santa Monica.

Robertson Boulevard

Intermix and Kitson are local boutiques that have perfected the art of catering to celebrity clients right alongside the style-conscious everyman.

This popular strip is one of the hottest shopping districts in LA. The entire section of West Third Street from La Cienega to Fairfax is walkable, making it a treat to park the car just once and step in and out of the boutiques that catch your eye.

Melrose Avenue and Melrose Place

Melrose Avenue Shops, Restaurants… Made famous from the television series Melrose Place, you will find a long street, encompassing many blocks of eclectic to chic shops, restaurants and drinking establishments. It is a colorful collection and not to be missed if you travel to LA.

Named for the mastermind behind the Venice canals, this legendary street runs through the heart of Venice and was named “The Coolest Block in America” in the 2012 GQ magazine Style Bible. The shopping is located between Main Street and North Venice Boulevard. Home décor shops, handmade furniture stores, vintage clothing sellers, surf shops, perfume shops and bookstores make this area as eclectic as any in Los Angeles. A former hangout for artist types and other hipsters, the area maintains a bit of an underground vibe, while catering to a clientele that’s in the know yet still a few tax brackets removed from the starving artist stage.

Montana Avenue

Estimates put the number of shops at more than 150 along this well-known street in Santa Monica. That translates to more choices than you can make in a single day. Most of the stores are privately owned boutiques or designer-label retail outlets selling couture that’s not widely available. The area is popular among the celebrity set and the well-heeled residents of nearby Brentwood. Situated between 7th and 17th streets, this shopping district offers block after block of boutiques selling everything from antiques to wines. In between, shops such as The Blue House and Hemisphere offer home furnishings, and since you’ll want to stay a while, there are many great places to eat, from cafés to sushi. Back home, you’d be lucky to find a handful of stores like this in an entire city. Here in LA, there’s a whole neighborhood full of them.

Malibu Country Mart at Cross Creek

In the heart of the Malibu Civic Center, nestled against the majestic mountains and just a stone’s throw from the beach lies the Malibu Country Mart, California’s premier location for shopping, dining, and relaxing. Removed from the stress and cookie-cutter selection of your typical shopping experience, the Malibu Country Mart features unique and upscale boutiques, art galleries, restaurants, and personal services set in an astoundingly beautiful atmosphere.
