Gather, network and celebrate with a coveted view of the Pacific
Stage your private meeting or gathering at our exclusive urban resort, on the area’s largest privately owned property, overlooking the ocean. Choose from the best outdoor event venues in Santa Monica at the Fairmont Miramar.
MORETON BAY CIRCLE
Our Moreton Bay fig tree is a local legend and landmark. It stands at nearly 100 feet with a 130-foot canopy that draws visitors to take a closer look at the incredible network of branches and gnarled roots. The original owners planted it back at the turn of the century, and today it’s the second-largest tree of its kind in California. The magnificent fig, and the circular drive around it, is also one of our most sought-after venues for receptions, dinners and weddings — and snapshots, of course.
THE UPPER POOL DECK
Make it a So Cal-chic pool party under the palm trees on our sunny Upper Pool Deck, meant for celebrating and socializing. This alluring outdoor space overlooks the swimming pool and lush gardens, the perfect location for cocktail parties, an al fresco breakfast, lunch or dinner. Covered with a pergola for shade, the space has a Kalamazoo kitchen outfitted with a gaucho grill, café seating and festoon lights — an appealing intimate space for smaller groups.
Watch the sun dip into the Pacific Ocean from this postcard-perfect terrace, ideally situated at the corner of Ocean Avenue and California Street, on the northwest corner of our five-acre private property. Host an outdoor lunch here, brunch, reception or outdoor networking event for up to 75 guests.
Take advantage of our mild, sunny Southern California weather with a party, gathering or special occasion set on the manicured lawn under the palm trees of our verdant gardens, at the center of our five-acre property. We can cater anything from happy hour and an after-dinner cocktail gala to a seasonal buffet or sit-down dinner for up to 100 guests.
THE BUNGALOW DECK
Social hour on the deck is a key part of the So Cal lifestyle. And The Bungalow is Santa Monica’s lively lounge of choice. Your group of up to 175 can take over the spacious deck of The Bungalow, a vintage casita reimagined in Baja-chic style. Everything about the laidback space lends itself to easy conversation and relaxed fun: the mismatched couches draped with Mexican blankets, surf mementos, glowing lanterns hanging from the trees and drop-dead gorgeous ocean views.
