The aromas of sizzling meats and vibrant Southern spices float just beyond the red brick facade of Main St. Grille. Though the casual restaurant serves flatbread pizzas and half-pound burgers, the kitchen's true skill lies in crafting more exotic dishes. Pulled pork sandwiches are dressed in Jamaican-style sauce, pork chops are smoked with pineapple, and shrimp and chicken are simmered in Louisiana-style gumbo. A selection of local craft and domestic beers helps wash down each bite.
The research staff at 7E—a medical-aesthetic company that prides itself on skincare innovations—designs noninvasive treatments that combat the effects of aging and bolster all-over wellness. Once staff members have perfected a solution, they share the fruits of their labors with clients at 7E Fit Spa. One of these many fruits is the Torc Plus, an FDA-approved body-contouring machine that works to deplete inches and bulk up muscles in bodies through electrical stimulation. The spa’s noninvasive face-lifts tighten visages while evening out skin tone, reducing puffiness, and increasing circulation, and saunas detoxify the body and relax clients with infrared heat shoplifted from the equator.
Sun Tanz Tanning's clean, spa-inspired environment is equipped with five types of UV-tanning beds, customized sunless-tanning services, and a spread of body-glowing lotions. The spray-tan option buffs pigmentless physiques with a golden, sunless tan without harmful UV rays or hearing the sun's curse-laden whispers. Applied by the steady hand of a trained tan technician in less than 20 minutes, the customized spray session uses an alcohol-free, DHA-infused solution that is designed to create a natural glow reminiscent of summers spent on the beach or winter vacations spent on the sun. Pale patrons can sit in on six faux sunsoaks from any of the bronzing cocoons, such as the standup bed for an even tan or the Tanses TX-52 Mega bed for optimal color in the shortest amount of time.
Summer looks endure all year long at Great Tans. The studio features 34 high-tech tanning beds, including everything from regular to high-pressure options. In addition to developing an even base, these beds can imbue the skin with a sun-kissed glow over time. Amenities such as shoulder, leg, and face tanners and cooling fans ensure that sessions within the spacious beds are comfortable and effective. Eschewing UV rays entirely, the Mystic spray-tan system coats skin with a light glaze of tanning solution, which creates a healthy, natural-looking sheen.
The team behind Luxe focuses on two goals: making clients feel comfortable in their modern spa, and making them feel comfortable in their own, newly soft skin. During facials customized to the client's skin type, aestheticians cleanse and soothe with freshly made, all-natural, therapeutic products such as essential oils. Alternatively, waxing sessions use Nufree, a botanical solution designed to pull away hair without drying the skin.
Bronzz Spray Tan darkens skin to alluringly summer-kissed tones that last up to seven days. Trained technicians apply custom-blended tans by hand while avoiding the lines and streaks that could otherwise arise from applications by automated spray booths or Jackson Pollock proteges. The staff also waxes unwanted body hair and combats dermal issues with anti-aging and acne-blasting facials.
