Lauren Levinger's City Guide

SoulCycle Castro

“I am a SoulCycle fanatic and they recently opened a new location in The Castro. The studio used to be a Diesel store when I was in Highschool so I think I love it even more because there is a bit of nostalgia attached to the space. I recommend taking Molli S. or Kamelle’s classes—they play the best music!” -Lauren Levinger

The Legion of Honor

“My favorite museum in SF is The Legion of Honor. The building is stunning and houses a really great collection of European art. It overlooks the Pacific Ocean and Golden Gate Bridge, so you go for the art and get a great view too!” -Lauren Levinger

“I love the Lands End hike along the water to the Sutro Baths. You get an amazing view of the city and the ruins which used to be a private saltwater swimming pool complex in the 1900’s, they are really beautiful, especially when the waves are crashing up against the walls.” -Lauren Levinger

The Progress

Photographed by Ed Anderson

“It’s so hard to pick just one favorite restaurant in San Francisco. The food scene is unparalleled and filled with amazing restaurants! But if I had to choose a current favorite, it would be The Progress. The restaurant reimagines the family-style dinner party and allows patrons to ‘choose your own adventure’. You are instructed to select 4 dishes from the menu to share with your party. The menu changes often so you are always in for a surprise.” -Lauren Levinger
