Inside Le Rouge Hair Lounge, there's a portrait of a woman in Marie-Antoinette-style garb with a tall gray wig and a powdered face. This old-fashioned glamour extends to the rest of the salon's decor: A gold chandelier hangs overhead, and near the portrait, a French-style sofa and two vintage wingback chairs surround a curio cabinet. The cabinet is stocked with Redken products, and there's a boutique area featuring a collection of baubles and handbags. Step into one of the styling stations, and you can watch as a skilled stylist does up your hair in an ornately framed mirror. At the back of the salon, there's a vanity table filled with glo minerals makeup products, and you can roast plastic marshmallows over a faux fireplace.
Film buffs across six states stare wide-eyed at large cinema screens, losing themselves in first-run Hollywood movies and the smell of fresh, buttery kernels within Your Neighborhood Theatre's 17 locations. Though all theaters prioritize comfortable seating, old-fashioned friendly service, and high-stakes preshow trivia slideshows, each location encompasses its own distinct charm, be it through arthouse décor, 3-D screens, or Rhode Island's vintage 1950's drive-in setting.

Piano keys float through the air on a mural on the wall of Chez Vin Wine Lounge, a Chester wine bar with subdued lighting and a relaxed ambience.

As patrons chat with friends or engage in staring contests with strangers, chefs flavor blue crab claws with Old Bay seasoning, wrap scallops with bacon, and prepare other tapas.
No matter the day, a sense of competition fills the air at King Pin Lanes. The sound of clattering pins and congratulatory high-fives echoes as bowlers roll strikes down the alley's 32 gleaming lanes. Automatic scoring systems allow visitors to focus on their upcoming bowls instead of adding up frames, and groups with kids 10 and younger can add bumpers to each gutter to help little ones get into the competitive spirit. Every Friday and Saturday, a DJ spins tunes to soundtrack cosmic bowling sessions with requests dominating after 9 p.m. At King Pin Cafe, King Pin Lanes' snack bar, bowlers gather all week long around plates of tater tots or freshly grilled burgers for conciliatory snacks after intense games or bowling shoe insults, while a full-service restaurant and lounge, Midlo's Bite is also available.
