Finally! You can get ready for your night out on the town while you’re out on the town.
The geniuses at the Beauty Bar in Park Slope — the borough’s only beauty parlor-cocktail lounge hybrid — let you pair your $10 manicure with a salon-themed libation such as the “Paul Mitchell Swizzle” (vodka, grenadine, and mint concoction with crushed ice; $10) . It also offers a solid selection of beer on tap ($5–7) — which makes it perfect for grown-ups.
“It’s a place for people who want a more relaxed party and couples stopping by for a glass of wine,” said manager Sean McCormack.
The Beauty Bar brand has lured coifed-and-tattooed fashionista crowds in party towns such as San Francisco, Austin, and Portland, but its Bushwick location recently closed.
The Park Slope location is adorned with the same ’50s-style aesthetic, complete with vintage hair-drying chairs, mirrors and pink glittery walls.
But you don’t have to be getting your nails done to have a good time.
“We bring the ladies and the gentlemen follow,” McCormack said.
