Most Loved Santa Monica Businesses Contest is Back!

It's time to show the love!


Santa Monica's Most Loved Businesses Contest, now in its 8th year, is live. Vote for your favorite coffee shop, fitness studio, bike shop, happy hour, and more.


The contest is now divided into two phases - nominations and voting - plus the number of categories have been expanded.


The nomination phase will run thru March 12. You can nominate your favorite businesses daily until the deadline.


The top 5 businesses in each category will receive a coveted spot as a finalist and move on to the voting phase. The voting phase will run from April 1-April 30 to determine the winners.




Winners will be highlighted in the citywide Most Loved Santa Monica magazine, the authority to locals' favorite businesses in the city. All of the finalists will receive a special commendation from the Santa Monica City Council. Now, more than ever, we need to show our love for our favorite businesses!
