Cabana and cocktails, anyone?
West L.A. has a new(ish) kid on the block that encapsulates the heart and soul of the Sunshine State while paying homage to Baja California. Say hello to The Hotel June, an L.A. hotspot where the only mode, is vacation mode.
With its vibrant interiors accented with bold pops of color, the odd cactus will immediately transport you to a resort in Mexico. This stunning retreat is home to the Caravan Swim Club, a gorgeous oasis filled with palm trees, cabanas, a pink-hued bar and an elevated terrace with music. Here, you’ll find both friends and colleagues gathering to sip on cocktails, dine on ceviche and marvel at the spectacular views.
All the menus draw inspiration from a road trip from Santa Barbara to Northern Baja, Mexico, reflecting the regions’ rich flavors and bounties. You can expect grilled fish, organic steaks, seasonal salads, oysters from the raw bar and shareable snacks paired with biodynamic wines, craft beer, and small-batch tequilas.
With Steve Livigni, of the award-winning Scopa, helming all culinary affairs and Chef Angie Lee (Martin Berasetegui, Peninsula Beverly Hills Hotel, the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons) bringing the vision to life, your palate will be sent off on an unforgettable adventure.
You might find yourself coming to this poolside oasis for a daytime gathering on the terrace then staying until dusk for music and a nightcap around our fire pits. After you get a taste of this resort-style life, you’re likely to sign yourself up for a daily Pool & Wellness Pass which allows you to lounge around in your bathing suit or make use of the fitness facilities. Sooner or later you’ll be packing a weekend bag and turning the hotel into your second home.
