Yankee Doodle Space Will Finally Get A Tenant In SM

It’s been a long time coming but it appears that the old Yankee Doodle space at 1410 Third St. Promenade in Santa Monica will finally get a new restaurant.  Ever since the sports bar closed due to a fire back in 2013, the space has mostly sat vacant.  Construction recently began and signs went up declaring that the cavernous space will be divided into two spaces; one will be a T-Mobile, and one will be a new restaurant.  I don’t think they’ve settled exactly on which restaurant as there is still a commercial lease notice online, but I’ll keep my eyes on it…


Yankee Doodle’s Permanently Closed In SM?

In September, I told you about the plans to renovate sports bar Yankee Doodles at 1410 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica after a fire closed it down.  It appears they have abandoned their plans to re-open.  All signs promising a return have been removed and their Yelp page lists the once popular bar as permanently closed.  And as you can see in the photo, a sports memorabilia pop-up has moved in.


Yankee Doodles Remodeling In Santa Monica

Down but not out…  After a late July fire closed local fave restaurant, singles scene, sports bar, and tourist trap  Yankee Doodles at 1410 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica, questions arose as to what would happen next.  But you can’t keep this plucky little phoenix down as indicated by the signs and permit applications in the window.  Looks like they’re planning a major remodel.  No word on an re-opening date (this is SM after all), but I’ll keep my eye on it…
