Malibu is open for business! Or, businesses, I should say. This summer, many new companies have come to Malibu to set up shop. With a thriving mom and pop shop community, you’ll find everything you need from hotels to restaurants to fashion.
Here are just a few of my favorites.
30745 Pacific Coast Highway
Having opened in early May in the Trancas Country Market, this eclectic shop offers home décor and furniture along with a great selection of clothing and swimsuits. Hiptique is new to Malibu, but not new to The Westside. Owner Christine Beradi chose to expand here after running a shop in Santa Monica for the past 10 years.
Le Café de la Plage
29169 Heathercliff Rd, Ste 112
Point Dume Shopping Center
What goes better with the beach than ice cream? Nothing! Which is why Le Cafe de la Plage is likely to be a big hit. Offering homemade ice cream, a bakery, and gourmet coffee, the cafe is known for its organic ingredients and healthy alternatives.
Malibu Country Mart, 3939 Cross Creek Rd
This great brother and sister team creates all their women’s fashions and art right here in the area. If you are looking for locally made products, you’ll love this new store.
23033 Pacific Coast Highway
This is a new hotel with an old history. It was originally built in 1953 across from Surfrider Beach. With the grand reopening, it offers rooms with ocean views, a restaurant on the roof that overlooks the pier, and all the nostalgia you can handle.
Malibu Country Mart, 23410 Civic Center Way, Suite B-2
If you are looking for high fashion, look no further. Recently opening in April, this French retailer chose Malibu as its first US boutique. Here you will find chic elegance as you browse many designer collections.
Malibu Country Mart, 3835 Cross Creek Road Suite A
For those wanting to show off their Southern California style, this shop offers casual sophistication in women’s clothing. The most fun part of shopping at PAIGE is the indoor/outdoor shopping experience.
3854 Cross Creek Rd, Suite 3854-A
Wish you had a bike to explore the area? Wish no more! Ebikezzz offers electric, road, and mountain bikes at their new shop location. Be sure to stop by for an electric bike demo!
Of course, these are not all the new shops in Malibu. If you have a favorite you’d like to share, give me a call or leave a comment.
