Arlington Plaza, Santa Barbara

Found at the quiet end of downtown Santa Barbara, the sun-drenched Arlington Plaza is located just across the street from the iconic Arlington Theatre on State Street in the historic cultural arts district. With its signature local red tile roofs, patio dining that beckons, and a truly unique retail experience, this place offers something for everyone.

Among Arlington Plaza's numerous amenities there is a curated collection of top-quality dining, retail and service establishments, such as Blossom Salon, Carlitos Cafe y Cantina, DIANI Shoes, DIANI Living, The Travel Store, and more. In particular, Renaud's Patisserie & Bistro serves up the area's finest croissants and is open for breakfast and lunch. For those in bad need of a shopping therapy there is a set of luxury stores, including DIANI Boutique and Treat, a high-end beauty supply retailer. And if you are in the mood for some fresh Mexican food, you can always grab a seat at Carlitos Cafe Y Cantina and treat yourself to their rock shrimp soft tacos. Alternatively, sip some margarita or pisco sour on Carlitos' shaded patio and listen to lovely live music.
