Based on the information we read online, we thought this would be perfect for a bachelorette party and would be full of ladies. When we got there on Friday night (around 11 or 11:30), there were a lot of men in there and some really...More

Girls weekend in NYC and this seemed to check all the boxes. Bar staff very quick, manicure was a fun addition - a quick nail shaping and colour choice. The highlight though was the comedy night on April 14. Really good line-up - would love...More

I was at beauty bar several times during my trip. I heard they did $10 manicures with a cocktail! The setting is dark, and the beauticians are on the left of the bar doing nails. Cocktails are tasty and reasonably priced. Later in the night...More

We loved the Beauty Bar and had a great time. Nice crowd. No hipsters. Great dj mixing many genres of music through the decades. Neat old beauty salon atmosphere. A good dive bar. Fun!

I went to Beauty Bar at 3pm on a Saturday. It was pretty empty, which I loved, and Happy Hour was until 9pm. Great combination! I did the manicure and drink combo for $10. I really like the vibe of this bar. It has a...More

Very interesting bar. Gets busy on the weekends. Their is a nail station where people are actually getting their nails done! The smell of polish and acetone may be a deal breaker for some. It is potent but bearable. They have chairs in the back...More
