The Santa Monica Promenade is a must-visit for LA tourists and locals alike. A hub of recreation, shopping, and dining, the sunny outdoor mall is situated just a block away from the Pacific Ocean, right in the heart of Santa Monica. And Alo Yoga, the fashionable yoga retailer favored by most yogis, just opened a 6,000 square foot store (their second brick-and-mortar in a year) right in the middle of the promenade.
In true Alo fashion, the space is gorgeous. Bright and airy thanks to skylights and open store front, the interior is comfortably minimalist with white walls, cement floors, and natural wood paneling.
Of course, the giant space houses all of Alo’s current collection for women and men; shoppers will find seasoned favorites like the Moto and Goddess Leggings alongside new styles that transition just as easy from savasana to post-yoga Starbucks.
The thing we love most, thought, about this new space? It seems to be all about community.
Like their Beverly Hills location, which hosts a yoga studio above the store, the architecture of this new Santa Monica spot encourages yogis to come in, shop, connect, and stay a while. A giant plush couch lines one wall, next to a sleek aluminum bar where Alo will eventually serve healthy beverages like Stumptown coffee, cold-pressed raw juice, Health-Ade kombucha, and matcha lattes. Scattered throughout the store are comfy armchairs, benches, and poufs—perfect places for yogis to perch while they chat about everything from asanas to the fit of their fave Alo pieces.
The store is open every day from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. and located at 1422 3rd Street Promenade, Santa Monica.
