At Beauty Bar, purple-and-white checkered floors, a disco ball, and other retro-themed decor transports cocktail hour back to the ’70s. While guests sip on martinis and other cocktails, glamour technicians beautify nails with express manicures, topping nails with long-lasting polish instead of melted-down fishing lures. The vintage saloon stays open until 2 a.m., allowing guests to flaunt their freshly dazzling nails on the dance floor during DJ nights like the hip-hop ladies night or Friday dance parties.
It's hard to miss the three-story buildings of the open-air Denver Pavilions, which are linked by the “Great Wall"—a huge structure whose DENVER marquee has become a widely recognizable symbol of downtown Denver. Located on the 16th Street pedestrian mall, the 40 shops, restaurants, and entertainment venues offer visitors innumerable ways to spend a leisurely day. Shoppers explore large retailers such as H&M, Forever 21, and Barnes & Noble and the I HEART Denver Store before refueling at Hard Rock Cafe, Maggiano’s Little Italy, or Lime Cantina. They can also knock down pins at Lucky Strike Lanes or catch a movie at UA Denver Pavilions Stadium 15, which—as reported in the Denver Post—hosted some of the 35th Starz Denver Film Festival's cinematic activities.
The mall also offers underground parking and a convenient valet service after 5 p.m., ensuring that you won’t have to leave a trail of bread crumbs to find where you parked.
At Studio A Collective of Stylists, a team of hair experts hand-picked by owner Andrea Tucker stays abreast of the latest trends and advises clients with up-to-the-minute style advice gleaned through regular trainings. Wielding products from Screen, Phyto, and Sebastian, the stylists tend locks with cuts, deep-conditioning treatments, and coloring services that include semipermanent dyes and glosses––treatments that lack the permanent hold of traditional dyes or bubblegum colorings. Stylists also color-coordinate nails to outfits with durable Shellac manicures and pedicures, and protect skin from unwanted hair with a slew of facial-waxing services. Styling tips for time between appointments foster long-lasting chic and protection from bedhead epidemics, as do complimentary maintenance trims in the salon, where walls brim with the creative wares of a rotating featured artist.
The techs at It's Simply Sugar sweep unwanted fuzz from bodies with professional-grade sugar paste comprised of sugar, water, and lemon. This concoction eschews dyes, fragrances, parabens, and petrols—pollutants that can cause irritation or skin to glow when you stand near a microwave. After techs slather exteriors with the unheated paste, they carefully remove coated hairs in the direction of the hair's growth to lessen any discomfort. Once skin has been thoroughly plucked, clients can don bathing suits without fear of itchiness. When techs aren't plucking strands, they offer services such as eyelash extensions, facials, and body scrubs.
The creators of Tease Studio––a fitness pole-dancing space––decided to extend their message of feminine empowerment and confidence to the skin with a healthy alternative to tanning. While instructors next door help ladies build killer physiques, beauty technicians utilize Bronzed Envy's paraben-free, 99% organic spray products to darken skin tones as if kissed by the sun's gentler brother. They carefully apply the solution in broad strokes with an airbrush to produce even, long-lasting color. The lightly scented solution moisturizes the skin and makes for a convenient, healthy alternative to UV rays, unless you happen to be a houseplant.
The staff at Body Massage Wellness Spa harnesses the FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water slides. The noninvasive treatment requires minimal recovery time.
