Welcome to the Neighborhood: May Roundup


As someone who lives, works and plays in West Hollywood, and serves as the First Vice Chair of the West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, I’m excited to share some of my new business picks with you! Here’s the May roundup:

For out-of-towners, MiniLuxe is an amazing solution as this chain is simply obsessed with safety standards and is an incredibly Instagrammable spot to boot. Their WeHo studio is located next door to Sweetgreen and H&M, making for a great afternoon on the oh-so-walkable Sunset Strip. BTW, I may have spotted one of the husbands from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills getting a Naked Mani last time I was there, just sayin’.

Tease that hair and break out your best track suit because the 80’s revival bar, Lazer Kat, is bringing the Running Man back to the Sunset Strip. Pizza by the slice, throwback cocktails (including slushies), and a cat that shoots lasers out of its eyes sets the (dance) stage for locals and tourists in the mood for a little retro fun.

The slushie revival continues with Beaches WeHo on what I like to call the Sunday Funday Strip (Santa Monica Blvd near Robertson). The 3,500 square foot venue offers light bites, cocktails, and of course fun alcohol-filled slushies. Daily pre-game drink specials start at 2:00 p.m. Yep, 2:00 p.m.

Let’s head over to the Eastside of town to Madison & Park, a bright and beautiful coffee lounge. For the digital nomad there is free wifi, a communal table and comfy couches. The owner at really wanted it to feel like an extension of your living room. If you fall in love with it, they even offer #merch to keep the cozy vibes going.

Aerospace High Performance Center expanded its presence with the West Coast counterpart to their celebrity filled NYC location. Hugh Jackman and Adriana Lima have used this whole body boxing based fitness concept to get them into enviable shape. They offer a $20 special for your first class and the second class is on them – a great choice for tourists who want to try out this A-list workout.
