Tara Sowlaty's City Guide

Olive & June

OJSM020

“This is possibly the most beautiful nail salon to have ever existed. The blush pink, white, and wicker color palette is accented by florals strong on the walls. With an incredible selection of polishes to choose from, and an organic mani and pedi situation, this is the best nail salon around if you have some time to sit down for something special. They even offer fun nail art if you’re into that.” Tara Sowlaty

Modo Yoga

modoyoga

“I love a good hot yoga class and Modo on La Brea is definitely my favorite. The sky-lights make all the difference during practice, and I like the more slow pace of their traditional Modo pose series classes. Make sure to bring a towel with you!” Tara Sowlaty

Guisados

Guisados-16

“You will never have a taco like this in your life. The difference here are their thick handmade corn tortillas and stewed meats—get the taco sampler and horchata, and thank me later.” Tara Sowlaty

Gjusta

gjusta

“This eatery in Venice is one of my absolute favorite places to eat, for either breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a snack. The grab-a-number system makes you feel like a kid in a candy store as you take a look down their long reclaimed-wood ‘deli’ case choose from their incredible baked bread, smoked fish, fresh salad preparations, desserts, and more. Everything is ridiculously delicious and made-in house, down to their fermented chili sauce!” Tara Sowlaty

Tomoko Spa

tomoko spa

“This Japanese spa in Beverly Hills is one of L.A.’s best hidden gems. When you want to indulge and pamper yourself this is the place to do it, and they start you right off by putting you in Japanese house slippers and yukatas to get you in the mindset. Designed by Thea Home, the minimalist yet warm space serves as a sanctuary for some of the best R&R around, and if you’re looking for something extra special book the couples massage with bath time and a Sugarfish meal right on the floor of your massage room.” -Tara Sowlaty

Hot Cactus

HOT_CACTUS_ANDY_J_SCOTT-1023

“This tiny shop in Silverlake is the best succulent and cactus store around. The hand-selected plants here are all pristine and have their own identity. Co-owner John Morera was a bonsai man before converting to cacti. The store schedules poetry readings, album-listening sessions, and the occasional dance party.” -Tara Sowlaty
