Every step of iKKSS Gourmet's treat-baking operations is done by hand. Batches of brownies, blondies, and cookies find their raw form after staff members hand assemble the dough from organic powders, pure oils, and hormone-free eggs without preservatives. Treats emerge from the oven to take on smaller shapes as staffers hand cut each batch, then package the separated servings into sealed packages to preserve their freshness and keep neighbors from sneaking smells without permission. Boxes of caramel butterscotch-drizzled brownies and organic cookies stuffed with apricot mousse filling arrive at doorsteps ready to eat straight out of the box, and keep their flavor for up to 12 days after being opened if stored in an airtight container.
Sepulveda Wine Co. opens its tasting bar to sommeliers and soda fans alike, with a weekly changing menu of wines available for sniffing, swirling, swishing, and swallowing. During a wine tasting, guests can sample five wines from the daily selection of 12 quality wines, featuring four white wines and eight red wines. Past potables have included Sanctuary 2006 Bien Nacido pinot noir—whose dry, balanced characteristics slosh past uvulae with flavors of currant, plum, and pomegranate—and the Round Pond 2009 sauvignon blanc, which complements its tangy lemon-lime taste with harmonious notes of herbs, honeysuckle, and Vivaldi’s Concerto No. 3 in F Major: L’Autunno, also known as the theme song of Jersey Shore.

During indoor cycling sessions, guests climb onto adjustable Schwinn bikes to burn fat and clear their minds by focusing solely on their workout.

Patrons who visit either of South Bay Xpress Spa and Wax’s two locations rest easy knowing that they've entrusted their skin to expert aestheticians. That's because the staff undergoes continual training in alternative waxing techniques, facial treatments, and lash enhancement procedures.
