Dear Friends of Downtown Santa Monica, 

It's good to see you again!  We've been through so much and are all wondering what comes next. In this time of uncertainty, we understand that it is important to give you some space and a place where you can feel safe. 

Please know that while in Downtown Santa Monica, we've got your back and are doing all we can to help you find your space under the sun. 

You may notice that we are taking extra precautions both in the public realm and inside of our businesses to ensure that you feel protected and comfortable. Under these new operating guidelines, you may experience queuing, wait times or find that your favorite businesses have changed their operating hours. To learn more about our health and safety standards, click on the tile below.

We will be updating this page with more information as businesses continue to open. In the meantime, you can use our Virtual Shopping & Dining Guide to experience Downton Santa Monica at home, which includes restaurants open for pickup and delivery, online programming, virtual events and more.
