Icona Pop recently said "I'm done with the club, just take me to the spa", and the sentiment rings so true. I was 60% hungover when stepping foot into the utopic bar-spa hybrid that ison the RaRa end of Chapel Street last Saturday morning.
The perfect wet weather time table was arranged: a brow wax, tint, a heaven-sent facial,(of the hair kind) and a lash tint. This was a tailored edit of their big bonanza $400 'All About Soak' package.

Upon entry, there's a waiting area plotted with plush couches to sit and chill, private rooms for those intricate treatments (insert brows, lashes, facials et al here) and a central bar commanding all eyes.
