A SHORE THING

Make Santa Monica your sophisticated destination: 16,000 square feet for grand black-tie celebrations, intimate courtyard ceremonies, private tasting dinners and rooftop receptions alike. The dynamic, scalable property pampers with year-round activities and boutique amenities for a California wedding weekend. Its downtown location is also easily accessible. Professional on-site specialists, international design by Kelly Wearstler and customized menus all enhance the Proper spirit of meaningful celebration.

Canela Ballroom

THE STATEMENT MAKER

Whether casual or formal, make a subtle but impressive statement for a larger reception. The Kelly Wearstler-designed Canela ballroom transforms into a festive, beautifully lit space, complete with pre-function foyer and dedicated elevator bank. Our ballroom is flexible for smaller receptions and can be divided into Canela A and Canela B. 

Pre-Function Foyer

A FOYER TO LINGER

After entry through the art-filled lobby, or dedicated elevator bank, the elegant pre-function area offers open space for check-ins, and vintage seating for socializing or breakout cocktails.

Olea Garden Terrace

EN PLEIN AIR

This much annual sunshine calls for al fresco ceremonies and cocktail functions. Flexible to suit both formal and casual occasions, the courtyard is an open-air location on the second floor. Enjoy California’s pristine weather and city views with lounge-style vignettes throughout the curved, lushly planted space. The courtyard offers the flexibility to expand festivities with adjacent meeting rooms, Surge and Converge.

Converge

HOLISTIC HOSPITALITY

Off the second-floor corridor, west-facing Converge is light and bright, with glass walls and doors opening onto a planted courtyard with colorful city views. In addition to A/V capability and natural elements abound: grasscloth walls, hardwood flooring, Converge creates a flexible space for social reception and hospitality suites.

Calabra Lounge

TOP IT ALL OFF

For intimate celebrations and rehearsal dinners, it’s only natural that the rooftop restaurant pairs an ocean view with a changing lineup of sustainable seafood. 

Calabra Rooftop Full Buyout

UP IN THE AIR

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. No matter the style of reception, the main event is, of course, the ocean view.
