About Town: Soul Cycle Founders
Julie Rice and Elizabeth Cutler are known for creating the cult-like indoor cycling sensation SoulCycle. With the arrival of their first California studios in West Hollywood, Brentwood and Santa Monica (just one block from the beach), the N.Y.-based duo have an excellent excuse to spend more time in sunny SoCal. And, it doesn’t look like that will change any time soon – the pair are set to open their stationary bike studios in Beverly Hills, Marin and San Francisco later this year. This is their Los Angeles:
TAVERN The oatmeal is unreal and the homemade nutter butters are divine. It’s also right next to our Brentwood studio so I can go for a snack right after a class.
ELYSE WALKER She has a great cultivation of unique brands.
GJELINA I love everything here, especially the pizza.
HEIST A great place to shop for up-and-coming designers.
JOAN’S ON THIRD The nicoise salad has actual tuna in it and the dressing is amazing.
PRESSED JUICERY They have the best green juice I have ever had and I feel great after I drink one.
RUNYON CANYON This is where I go for a hike in the early morning to clear my head.
FRED SEGAL They sell Happiness Sweatpants that I wear to work.
MAXFIELD It feels like I’m shopping in a museum.
NOBU MALIBU The view of the beach from this restaurant is incredible.
YOGURT STOP I go for late night yogurt dates in West Hollywood with my best friend Michael. My favorite flavor is cake batter with fat free brownie topping.
