Eleven blocks of style-hunter’s paradise await you on the elegant, tree-lined street known as Montana Avenue. Santa Monica’s vibrant sidewalk sale returns this year on Saturday, May 20, from 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. and will feature over 150 participating businesses offering special discounts and deals. Even Partner Trust’s flagship Santa Monica office, established by the real estate team of Pence Hathorn Silver (PHS), will stay open throughout the day serving coffee and sweets to passerby.
Whether you choose to stop-in for a brief visit—in which case we recommend grabbing a (portable) sushi burrito from Kye’s—or stroll for hours, Montana Avenue is an attractive dining and shopping destination and an easy walk from the Santa Monica Pier or the Third Street Promenade. Support local business by popping into boutiques like Savannah, Peek Kids, Stephanie Grace, and beloved fashion label Clare V., whose Parisian designer firmly planted herself in the Los Angeles design community where her line has been made exclusively since 2008.
Favorite restaurants from locals and visitors alike include R+D Kitchen (best to make a reservation), Forma (must love ‘Formaggio’, or cheese), and Blue Plate (beachy-chic vibe where breakfast is served all-day). Stop inside Bardonna or Caffe Luxxe for a caffeinated beverage to power you through the day’s festivities then cap the evening off with a movie at Montana Avenue’s own cinema, the Aero Theatre, which will be showing a double feature on the night of the annual sale.
