We were first through the door yesterday at Breathe Spa's beautiful new buzz-in location in the historic Roger's Building. Here's 5 things we loved.
1. Once a 1911 barber shop, the spa features black-and-white mosaic floors, white marble pillars, Victorian-era decorative mirrors and ornately detailed high ceilingsall original and restored to stunning, buttercream-icing effect
2. Five sparkling treatment rooms, each with its own chandelierand ample space to change into your gorgeous robe in private.
3. Breathe's famous facials (formerly a socialite secret) that will make you glow like an angel.
4 Pedicures using Zoya non-toxic polishes (developed by a Russian pharmacist for his pregnant wife) with 132 colours to choose from.
5. A sumptuous all-white waiting area and Old English sideboard reception desk where reloadable gift cards are now on offer for your better half to pick up in a snap. Hit "forward," subject line "pretty, please"
