Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • This boutique Santa Monica hideout tucked away in a leafy residential neighborhood boasts Craftsman styling, eco-friendly policies and a relaxed modern vibe. While the Ambrose is a perfect basecamp for your group’s L.A. wedding, it’s also a great place to party!
  • Intimate celebrations flourish here among five unique entertainment spaces, known collectively as “The Apiary,” which can be combined to suit your event flow. You might exchange vows in the garden Courtyard alongside a trickling fountain; host a cocktail hour in the Fireside Patio and adjoining Library; then dine in The Living Room, where sleek marble café tables bar and cozy corner booths create a dynamic atmosphere. Mix it up how you please!
  • Spacious rooms & suites, many with private patios, invite lingering--but the beach, 3rd Street Promenade and the Southland’s many atrractions are just minutes away. Tip: The Ambrose can also host your Welcome Reception, Rehearsal Dinner or bachelorette bash!
