As holiday season checks in along Santa Monica Beach, Shutters on the Beach and Casa del Mar take on a festive ambiance befitting of the season.
It’s one that inspires champagne toasts with colleagues and intimate dinner parties with friends, all set against the stunning backdrop of the Pacific. And our catering and events experts ensure you won’t have to lift as much as a finger during any part of your holiday celebration.
Although, you will need to choose a venue–and that can be cause for daydreaming. Scenic venues like the Pacific Terrace at Shutters, offering panoramic views of the Pacific and the glowing Santa Monica Pier at night, and the 4,200-square-foot Colonnade Ballroom at Casa, where gleaming chandeliers accent the vaulted ceiling, are just two of your options when choosing your preferred form of celebration.
Best of all is our Holiday Menu, which can be prepared to your personal taste.
A delicious sampling of hors d’oeuvres may be the way to go, with dishes like Bacon Wrapped Dates, Oyster Shooters with Granny Smith Apple Mignonette, and Pear Tomato and Mozzarella. Or, choose stations with themed offerings such as sushi, cheese, charcuterie, and seafood. (We recommend the hot beverage station, complete with Crystalized Ginger and Cinnamon Sticks.)
And then there are plated three- and four-course dinners for banquets and intimate gatherings. Entrées such as Pumpkin Risotto, Roast Turkey with Apple Walnut Stuffing, and Pan Roasted Skuna Bay Salmon are the highlights of the menu. That is, until you see the seasonal dessert offerings.
Complete the event with seasonal cocktails like Bullet’s (Non-Egg) Nog, and you’ve set the stage for a spirited holiday by the Pacific.
