Support Downtown Santa Monica Businesses Giving Back to Frontline Employees

Order food for delivery or takeout, enjoy happy hour from home, and experience wellness and family-friendly activities from a distance with Downtown Santa Monica's virtual offerings


Downtown Santa Monica restaurants and businesses on Third Street Promenade continue to operate for delivery or curbside pick-up to provide the community with their favorite comfort meals or "happy hour from home" cocktail kits.


There are a number of ways to eat local and support Santa Monica businesses while practicing social distancing and self-care. Order pasta, pizzas, and family meals accompanied by cocktails to-go or for delivery from Elephante while directly supporting frontline medical workers. Elephante is giving back to the dedicated medical professionals by preparing and delivering meals to local hospitals to keep our heroes well-fed and smiling through this time. For a full list of Downtown Santa Monica restaurants offering online or delivery services, click here.


Local health and wellness businesses in Downtown Santa Monica are offering online classes, free workouts and meditation classes to help you stay healthy while observing social distancing. From sound bath meditations to intense HIIT circuits and dance lessons, there's something for everyone. Sweat Yoga is giving back to our heroes in the medical field by offering free access to their online yoga classes to medical professionals all over the world. For a full list of at-home workouts and classes click here.


With so many families staying at home, Santa Monica businesses are stepping up with creative, educational, and family-friendly activities to help keep children engaged. For weekday programming for the kids, tune in to "Cayton Recess" on Cayton Children's Museum's Instagram page and Youtube page for music, storytime, art-making and other activities designed to entertain and engage children. The Gourmandise School of Sweets and Savories is helping parents teach children recipes and culinary fundamentals during "Cook in with Chef Gino" weeknights at 5 pm on its Instagram page. For a full list of content and lessons that can be remotely accessed from the safety of your home, click here.


In addition to delivery and to-go orders, support local favorites by purchasing a gift card to be used at a later date, follow @DTSantaMonica on Instagram and Twitter or DowntownSantaMonica on Facebook to like and share posts on social media, sign up for a business' newsletter to receive details, updates, and deals, or shop online if the merchant has that option available. Share your stories on social using #DTSMatHOME 


Downtown Santa Monica eagerly looks forward to welcoming the community back to enjoy the Third Street Promenade as it was intended to be used, a space for the community to gather, enjoy, and come together. Visit for the latest resources and information and how to continue to support businesses during this time.
