Isla santa monica

Isla | ISLA, which began as a pop-up, is the latest offering from Chef Brian Bornemann and Leena Culhane of Crudo e Nudo, and Shane Won Murphy of Little Prince — both beloved Westside gems. The ISLA menu reads like a dream, with a “diligent” representation of local ingredients in dishes like their whole cauliflower, half kanpachi and selection of skewers from shrimp to snap peas and chanterelles. The Crudo e Nudo team brings their progressive labor model and tight knit relationships with local farmers and artisans along with them, as well as a low-intervention wine program which focuses on “best soil practices and high-acid, mineral-driven wines”.TPC studio west hollywood

TPC STUDIO | This stunning new West Hollywood pilates studio is the first ever in-person version of The Pilates Class Studio by Jacqui Kingswell. The one year pop up is a fully immersive and holistic fitness experience housed in small, but incredibly beautiful 1,240 square foot studio off Melrose. Seven class styles are offered, including Reformer, plus private sessions are available. The calming ambience, warm lighting, and natural textures are enough to get us on the mat themselves. Stay tuned as we’re featuring the designer behind the beautiful space soon.

Classes include offerings like this one with celeb trainer, Katie Mullen: Move, “a whole-body workout inspired by modalities such as yoga, Pilates, barre, and bodyweight training — rhythmic movement to reset body and mind.” Breathwork and sound are thoughtfully designed to amplify the physiological impact of the class.
