Big Dean’s Expands, Starbucks Lands Under The Pier In SM

Tucked underneath the Santa Monica Pier, Big Dean’s Ocean Front Cafe has long been a favorite watering hole with locals and the beach crowd, and has remained largely untouched since the 1970s.  But that’s all about to change…  According to a spokesperson, they are expanding into the space just to the north, adding more patio, bar, and kitchen space.  And at the other end of the building, a brand new Starbucks is moving in, bringing a much different vibe to this little hidden corner of Santa Monica.  Check out the artist’s rendering below to get a taste of how things will look.
