Santa Monica Proper offers a series of Kelly Wearstler-designed flexible space, including four meeting rooms, a ballroom, courtyards and terraces, and Calabra, the area’s only rooftop pool-deck-restaurant with panoramic ocean views. Proper’s events team offers multi-layered personalization, with market-driven catering menus for indoor and outdoor meetings, weddings, special events, and private dining. Anything less wouldn’t be Proper.

Canela Ballroom

Designed by Kelly Wearstler to make a subtle but impressive statement, the Canela Ballroom offers a distinctive, beautifully lit space for casual and formal occasions, complete with pre-function foyer and dedicated elevator bank.




Off the second-floor corridor, west-facing Converge is light and bright, with glass walls and doors opening onto a Juliet balcony with colorful city views. A slab bar with antiqued mirror backsplash, as well as the indoor-outdoor setting, creates a flexible space to mix business meetings with social reception.




The more intimate Surge is a bright setting with one handsome boardroom table. In addition to A/V capability including Apple TV, natural elements abound: grasscloth walls, hardwood flooring and doors revealing a lush courtyard with colorful city views.



Olea Terrace

Suitable for formal and casual occasions, the open-air terrace offers the ocean breezes, city views, greenery, ample space and lounge seating to enjoy California’s perfect weather. The terrace offers the flexibility to expand festivities with adjacent Surge or Converge.



Calabra Rooftop

Imagine the possibilities for a full buyout of the largest rooftop deck in Los Angeles, where multiple vignettes by Kelly Wearstler come together in undeniably picturesque combination: a pool and sundeck with trellised entry and covered cabanas; monolithic teak and marble circular bar; fire pit; and indoor-outdoor restaurant all with epic ocean views.



Palma Lounge

Our art-filled lobby lounge serves as the perfect meeting spot for intimate groups in an open setting. Host a small gathering in the Grotto with light bites and crafted cocktails. Go bigger with a full buyout of Palma that includes our monolithic bar and various living room vignettes.




Proper’s Siete is perfect for design-driven clients seeking non-traditional venues. With furnishings fully curated by Kelly Wearstler, the space comes to life with expansive windows, clean lines, vaulted ceilings, lounge seating, a full open and operational kitchen, a permanent bar, expansive patio, and private restrooms.
