A wonderful afternoon of art and culture

Bergamot is a wonderful area to walk, grab a bite to eat, and enjoy many of LA's long-standing galleries all in one convenient area.

I love wandering through Bergamot Station. There is always something new and interesting in this former railroad station built in the late 1800s but abandoned in the 50s. Leave it to the artists to revitalize a space! :) Visit the Santa Monica Museum. Small, home grown, always something interesting. There is a small gift shop there and they have lots... More

First time to Bergamot Station and it was a great place to view art exhibits. The lighting is good and the variety of exhibits is refreshing.

We visited on 12/30 and most of the private galleries and the Santa Monica Museum of Art were closed until next week or the week after. The ones that we're open were fascinating.

Galleries predominantly represent artist producing art and home decor ornaments made from reused textiles. Downside is little variety. Artists work is too similar. There are other activities -- such as a speaker series and Writers Bootcamp -- happening at Bergamot Station.

Not easy to find if you dont live in LA but really worth the visit if you like art, photos, paintings, etc. You will have a great choice of art galleries. One of the best? Shoshana Blank's.

There are a bunch of interesting galleries here, some are exceptional- with excellent choice of art and photos. There is also a nice restaurant to have lunch. Bergamot is very accessible and parking is easy. It makes for a nice couple of hours diversion.

See Lois Lambert Gallery--her store has a glorious assortment of unique and hilarious gifts. The last bohemian bastion of LA--long may it live

Once a month or so, I join my friends at Bergamot Station for lunch and visits to the various galleries. Generally, we share sandwiches and order one their fine soups and visit on the outside patio. Great Fun and the price is right.

Fun gallery openings. Function art gallery is full of really funky stuff from chairs made of wine corks and baby food jars to chandeliers made with glass bottles.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
