How to Have the Best Sunday in Los Angeles, According to ‘Bel-Air’ Princess Coco Jones


In Sunday Funday, the people of Los Angeles give us a summary of their ideal Sunday in the city. Find ideas and inspiration on where to go, what to eat and how to enjoy life on the weekends.

As a proud Capricorn, Coco Jones has never been the type to shy away from hard work.

The 25-year-old singer-actress plunged headlong into the entertainment industry at age 9 when she caught the eye of Disney Channel executives and landed her first breakout role on the Disney series “let it shine” movie before his 13th birthday.

Jones stars as Hilary, the fabulous eldest daughter of the Banks family, in Peacock’s modern reimagining of Will Smith’s comedy “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.” Called simply “Bel-Air,” the drama premiered its second season in February. Also last month, Jones was honored for her music, winning the NAACP’s Outstanding New Artist Award for their debut EP, “What I Didn’t Tell You.” She is scheduled to perform in two consecutive shows in April at the mint club in West Hollywood.

In addition to juggling her singing and acting career, Jones stars in a fun unscripted YouTube show called “ty coco” with his best friend, singer Terrell Grice, who is also the host of “terrell’s show.”

Lately, Jones’ professional life has been “very hectic,” he says, adding that he plans to release a full-length album this year. “There’s a lot of momentum, so I’m really in motion every day, and I think I had to adjust to that.

“In a good way,” he quickly adds.

Due to his increased workload and demands, Jones has to be more intentional about spending time with loved ones, while also prioritizing his own well-being. She recently added a handful of activities to her self-care toolkit to help keep her grounded, she says.

“I love a good devotional or something spiritually uplifting,” says the Lebanon, Tennessee, native, who moved to Los Angeles nearly a decade ago. “I am a big fan of massages. I really didn’t like them because it forced me to not be on my phone and just sit there. But I’ve challenged myself to do something like this more (often) because I’m so connected to my phone, not even by choice, just by obligation.” She also likes reading, falling into YouTube black holes, and eating ramen from silver lake ramen.

On the occasional Sunday off, Jones likes to put these methods into practice. Here he takes us to his ideal Sunday in Los Angeles. This interview has been lightly edited and condensed for length and clarity.

9 a.m. Start your day and order a breakfast burrito

There are days when I really don’t want to get up early, and that’s when I really stay in bed. But I’m going to be awake around 9am regardless, I don’t even know why. It’s not even my choice. But I wouldn’t (physically) get out of bed until 10:30 or 11 am So I would vibrate in bed for a while. I would probably read a devotional in bed. I could even order breakfast from Uber Eats if I don’t have it.

dialogue coffee it’s really been doing it for me. They have a breakfast burrito from Christ himself. Another thing I like to do is order groceries from my house because sometimes I want to know what is in my food, not what I guess is in it. So I’ll make cinnamon rolls or biscuits with eggs, bacon or whatever I fancy. But if not, then it’s probably Dialog Cafe for breakfast.

I love a good latte. I’ve really gotten into them. I was going to (recommend) the Starbucks pistachio latte, but I’m so tired of everyone always promoting them. So there’s another coffee shop called Javista Organic Coffee Bar in hollywood Guys, there’s this almond croissant and this honey lavender latte. What the hell? it’s fire

12 pm Having a “normal” day with my friends

I’d like to do something that feels really normal. Normal to me means no industry or entertainment associated with it at all. Like literally something anyone could do anywhere in the world because I think it’s important, at least for me, to have that separation. Personally, I just want to be able to make sure that I can have conversations and have other things to say that don’t have to do with my career. I think all my girls and I are like-minded in that regard.

So I would probably go with my daughters to someone’s house if we feel like being inside. Or we could go out and do something like a nice lunch time. Maybe we’ll go shopping together. We also like to do gym classes together. Of course all the girls are doing Pilates, but we’re a little more active with it. We like kickboxing or Rumble boxing moment.

The other day, we went to a Korean spa together, which was so cute and fun. We had our bathing suits on and were ready to get into the hot tub. And they looked at us as if to say: “No, ma’am.” And we said, “No, ma’am, what?”
They then said, “This is a nude spa.” (Laughter) We were cracking up at the impact of it all, but we said, “Let’s do it. They were here.” So we really loved it.

3:00 pm Embrace cheating day

I feel like we’re probably going to have lunch and relax and talk somewhere for a while. In Los Angeles, there’s the go-to meal where you basically go to an appearance, so you like to dress to impress and then eat a small portion of food in a very lively place. Or you have to eat to have good food, and you can wear sweatpants. And it won’t be a problem. But since it’s Sunday and we’re probably just more relaxed, I feel like we’d be eating to eat. We could even do a cheat day type of moment like a wing stop or we like it a lot Berry’s lobster pizza, which is delicious. But if we dress to impress, we’ll probably go somewhere like katsuya, delilah either the good boy.

5 pm Head to a local bar, then do an activity.

If we’re already dressed up and looking cute, we’d probably go to a bar that has a fun atmosphere like The Texan where you can play cornhole. Sometimes we will be very impulsive and go somewhere like Dave & Buster’s or an escape room. Or if we are more in a relaxation council, we will go to the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema have drinks and go see a movie. we also like the rooftop movie club which is sometimes at the top of EP and LP

8 pm Try new cocktail recipes at home

Assuming we’ve all been out all day, we’d probably order dinner at someone’s house and make drinks. We really like trying new drink recipes. My friend from home started it. She made this gingerbread martini over Christmas, and ever since, we’ve been sending each other recipes like, “Oh girl, we’ve got to try this.” Now some of them are crazy and don’t look realistic. Or we try to figure out how to make the drinks we always order. For example, I’ll always have a lemon drop or cucumber martini, so we learned how to make them just so we can have the same drinking effect without having to be outside.

For dinner, if this is a cheat Sunday, we’ll really go there. So probably crab legs in the kicker crab. Or maybe hot wings cafe in Melrose, but if someone forces us to be healthy, we will greensweet.

11 pm Go to another bar with a good DJ

we could go to the featured room because you can have dinner there, and then it can also become a small club. When the DJ is right, he is giving what he has to give. I also like a very relaxed room like the one rooftop at sunsetwhich is next to Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles. If you really want a quiet night you can eat Roscoe’s and then go there and feel the vibe. Music is always giving what it has to give. They also have a very fun paint-and-sip.

2 a.m. Bedtime

I’ll probably get home at 2 am When I’m working, I stay up a bit later just to have my own personal quiet time and do whatever I prefer to do at that time. But since it’s Sunday and everything I did was by choice, I’ll probably just go straight to sleep.
