The Agenda: Goop MRKT, Andy Warhol, and Coachman HotelAuthor:Lindsey Shook
This hidden gem on San Francisco’s Maiden Lane is a Frank Lloyd Wright original (the spiral staircase here even inspired the design for the Guggenheim), and for the next few weeks, it’s playing host to Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop MRKT pop-up shop. Designed by local interiors’ star Steven Volpe (you know him as Hedge Gallery’s founder) to resemble 1970s Big Sur, the boutique even features three of his pieces for McGuire’s furniture collection (Kincob Bookshelf, Crin Dining Arm Chair, and Cubica Cocktail Table). You can ogle these, along with a curated selection of wellness products, apparel, kitchen goods by March, and Gwyneth’s first branded product line with the Bay Area’s own Juice Beauty.
When: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., Mon. – Sat. and 11 a.m. – 6 p.m., Sun. through Sun. 5/22
Where: 140 Maiden Ln., San Francisco

After a yearlong, multi-million dollar renovation of the 1960s motel originally built for the Winter Olympic Games in Squaw Valley, the re-imagined Coachman Hotel opens its doors, and 42 rooms, to guests for weekend trips to the mountains. With design led by Brooklyn’s Studio Tack, the hotel features handpicked, locally handcrafted goods from the likes of Stephen Kenn, Brendan Sowersby of 100xbtr, Jason Pickens, and Eric Trine. Frette linens, Apple TVs, a Stumptown coffee bar, outdoor fire pits, and massive poolside lawn seal the deal.
When: Now open and accepting reservations
Where: 4100 Pine Blvd., South Lake Tahoe
