Feels like June
What’s inspiring us right now, from local art to live music to neighborhood discoveries and everything in between.
This summer, in the spirit of connecting like-minded communities while taking action for a cleaner coast, we were excited to join forces with Surfrider Foundation Los Angeles Chapter and Lo-Fi Aperitifs for a series of beach cleanups and after parties.
To kick off this season’s Supper Series at Hotel June, earlier this month we partnered with Crowns & Hops Brewing Company, a Black-owned craft beer brand based in Inglewood, California for an intimate poolside dinner at Caravan Swim Club. Over the brand’s newest craft beers, Co-Founder Beny Ashburn shared more about his passion for their process, while Chef Angie Lee prepared a prix-fixe menu of Baja-inspired eats.
At Hotel June, our private retreat in the heart of Malibu is intended to be a space to slow down and soak in your surroundings. Building a community of like-minded people who prioritize mindful living has allowed us to expand our wellness experiences and hone in on conscious practices — this season, we’re proud to partner with Open, a mindfulness studio that focuses on meditation, breathwork, and movement.
To celebrate the launch of June Grapes — an exclusive Hotel June wine collaboration with sustainably-produced, family-run Hollow Grapes wine — we met up for a conversation on all things wine with owner and winemaker Quinn Hobbs. Read on for more on Quinn’s background and to learn about the two natural, organic wines he created just for June.
Introducing Angie Lee — our Chef de Cuisine at Hotel June! With a career that began at Le Cordon Bleu Pasadena and led her to an externship at the three-star Michelin Restaurant Martin Berasategui in Lasarte, Spain. Lee previously served as Chef de Cuisine at Santa Monica Proper, and held culinary positions at esteemed hotels like the Peninsula Beverly Hills, and the Beverly Wilshire, Four Seasons Hotel. We’re thrilled to have her expertise as part of the Caravan Swim Club family, and were excited to catch up with her for a quick-fire questionnaire on all things front of mind.
