“I feel like there is some sort of vortex in Joshua Tree,”
says Jen Rossi, designer behind beachy bohemian label Jen’s Pirate Booty (jenspiratebooty.com)—beloved by Victoria’s Secret Angels Behati Prinsloo and Candice Swanepoel. “There is an undeniable energy that attracts many different walks of life.” This magnetism is what prompted the Malibu native and mother of three to open the doors to her decade-old brand’s inaugural storefront in the desert community this winter, just in time for festival season (61729 Twentynine Palms Hwy., Joshua Tree). Here, her local haunts. • Joshua Tree National Park A morning hike is always a wonderful way to start the day. I also love to camp here under the moon and stars. nps.gov/jotr. • Integratron The Sound Bath is quite an experience. There are so many stories and myths surrounding it; go see, learn, listen and feel for yourself. integratron.com. • Joshua Tree Coffee Company Get one of their nitro cold-brewed coffees and make sure to ask them to spike it with their creamy coconut milk. jtcoffeeco.com. • 29 Palms Inn It’s eclectic and has a really great vibe. Lay poolside under the desert sun and sip on one of their specialty cocktails. 29palmsinn.com. • Pappy & Harriet’s Pioneertown Palace It’s a super rustic, old-timey saloon. You will meet every walk of life there and the setting is one of a kind. If you’re there at the right time, you may be lucky enough to catch one of your favorite musicians on open mic night. pappyandharriets.com.
