I’ve been avoiding the Santa Monica place until the hub-bub died off.  When it opened last month it seemed likeIMG 6756 300x200 #12 WestsideDBs 365 Things to Do in Santa Monica   Santa Monica Place everyone in Santa Monica was swarming the downtown area.  Finally, I got a chance to check out this open air mall and have to say I am impressed.  I’ve never been one for shopping, but I know my wife is excited to head to the new Bloomindales & Nordstroms – Excuse me while I go hide the credit cards now.

First off, its huge – three floors of shopping experience with a top floor that is predominantly eateries and restaurants.  A cool open air experience with some water views can be had on the west end of the building.  A great place for an evening cocktail, or a power lunch that is central to the downtown Santa Monica area.

This Saturday, indie band Rumspringa will be playing on the Dining Deck from 6-8pm  There are happy hour pricings on drinks as well.

I guess the one thing that really turns my crank are the number of restaurants that go from quick and easy to chef driven culinary experiences.  I will definitely return for a night out and check out the experience.

Santa Monica place is near the Promenade in downtown Santa Monica (which is basically third street).  Located at 395 Santa Monica Place
Santa Monica, CA 90401

Broadway is the nearest crossroad.  Let me know if you are going down there – maybe we’ll meet up for lunch!
