The tile surrounding the entrance is the only element of interest for a visit. Interior is mid-20th century industrial.
City Council chambers are nicer and more comfortable than most municipalities.

Go inside if its open. The lobby and stairs are a testament to a time when construction and craftsmanship mattered. Really beautiful.

Stumbled upon it. It's across the steer from a really cool park. The building is beautiful. We didn't go inside, but thought it was cool enough from a distance to walk over and check it out.

There is nothing to see here folks. The buildings are not unique and are quite bland.
The courthouse is located near as is the police department.
Unless you have business there, I can not think of one reason you would want to go there, unless one your friends needs bail money.
There is not a decent place to eat in sight, it is boring, you will pay to park.
The locals go there for business, like court hearings.
There is nothing here, keep moving.

I have been in this building many times. I used to volunteer as a Commissioner for the City of Santa Monica. You can generally come here Tuesday nights to listen to a City Council Meeting or even grab a "chit" (small sheet of paper) to write your name down so you get about 1-2 minutes to address City Council about an issue. There is ample parking nearby and beautiful plants and grass in front of the building. This is also where various City of SM departments are located such as the Department of Buildings, etc.
