Hugo Boss, and many others it is a very pretty and modern promenade. You can also find an Old Navy if you want some savings. There are many exclusive boutiques and kiosks.

It's always fun to go to the third st promenade - free parking in the Santa Monica lots, great beach vibe, great to walk around and check out a lot of great stores. And of course, a bunch of unusual street performers!

Pretty much everything a young adult/teenager could want from a shopping venue, with lots of options for weary parents to sit with a coffee/beer/glass of wine!! A definite must for visitors to Santa Monica with teenagers who want to shop!! And loads of good places...More

Popular tourist spot as well as an upscale shopping district to browse and enjoy the afternoon. Right near the Santa Monica Beach. Don't miss this place.

Nice shops and street entertainment. Many unique shops and restaurants not generally found in open air or indoor malls. Nice place to people watch.

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

I saw water bowls outside and lots of small dogs so on the walk/street I'd say yes. However in the stores it's probably a store by store decision.
