House of Blues Sunset Strip has hosted performances by legendary artists, among them Tupac Shakur and Prince. But the confines of the famed venue are just as remarkable, decorated with artwork by Alan Sainte James Boudrot and weathered tin. That tin was taken from a gin mill in the Delta—mere feet from the spot where Robert Johnson is said to have traded his soul to the devil for otherworldly guitar-playing skills and a pick signed “Beelzebub.” And in keeping with House of Blues tradition, the Sunset Strip location keeps a box of Mississippi mud beneath its stage and showcases the “Crazy Quilt” on its wall.

After receiving her education in England and training in the salons of industry giants such as Georgette Klinger and Frederic Fekkai, Aban Patel decided it was time to create her own beauty legacy. So the Bombay native opened Abanara Skin Esthetics, where she calls upon more than two decades of experience in skincare, massage, and energy work to transform bodies inside and out. During facial treatments, she employs modern anti-aging technology—including ultrasonic waves and micro-currents that diminish fine lines—yet remains true to her holistic philosophy by handcrafting all-natural, plant-based cleansers and lotions, which she uses alongside professional products by brands such as Osmosis and Susan Ciminelli.
Patel also offers reflexology sessions designed to remedy physical ills and chakra clearing to restore energy flow to systems blocked by negative thoughts or swallowed construction horses. The tranquil spa is tucked inside a quaint cobblestone courtyard filled with natural light and potted plants, making it the perfect place for those looking to escape everyday tension or photosynthesize in private.
