SANTA MONICA PLACE- VALET SERVICES
At the western, ocean side of the newly renovated mall is the Valet Station. The Valet Station functions as a formal gathering point for vehicular drop off and pick up, with customers being provided with shading from a glass canopy, as well as seating while their automobile is retrieved.

The Valet Station has been outfitted with a state of the art digital car count and delivery time system to keep customers informed.

Upon project completion, the Valet Station will be LEED Silver Ceritifed.

SANTA MONICA PLACE- UGO CAFÉ
Ugo Café at Santa Monica Place is the second location for Ugo Pascarella, who already operates a thriving restaurant, café, and wine bar in Culver City, California. While the new Ugo Café is quite small, it has a wonderful location in the center of the new Santa Monica Place shopping center, recently given a major makeover by the Macerich Company. The Cafe features a bright and curvilinear skylit interior, designed to complement the special gelato and pastry cases imported from Italy. The exterior of the cafe was designed to be as transparent as possible, to increase the visibility of the various food items, especially the colorful gelatos. The working areas, which are very compact, were very carefully designed to maximize functionality.
