With three locations serving Seattle, both downtown and in a new South Lake Union site, Capelli’s Gentlemen’s Barbershop provides customers with a warming blend of both the traditional and the new for Seattle-area men who need a bit of grooming done. This Fourth Avenue location, offers a comfortable spot for the professional man to relax during his busy day. For the exceptionally busy, easy online scheduling allows clients to pick morning, afternoon and even appointments that don’t conflict with either work or social obligations. Services range from traditional haircuts to head shaves, from signature shaves to mustache and goatee trims, all from within a wood-lined, cozy feel that’s more akin to a den than its downtown space. Dim lighting and high-end touches round out the experience, and enamored customers looking to repeat the experience can sign up for executive memberships to earn future discounts.
Butting up against historical neighborhoods including Pioneer Square and Capitol Hill, downtown Seattle boasts gorgeous views of the Puget Sound and outlying island, with locavore-friendly dining and thriving cultural institutions. The Seattle Public Library across the street from the hotel hosts free lectures from popular authors and offers a striking, unique view of the Elliot Bay from its 10th floor. Guests can take a tour, soak in the stunning, asymmetrical architecture of the building, or gaze meditatively at the surrounding public-art installations. The city's distinctive seaport setting is exemplified in seafood-specializing marketplaces, a plethora of pescatarian dining options, and the Seattle Aquarium. With an environmentalist mission in tow, the aquarium educates visitors on green practices, including the facility's own solar-assisted water heater. The underwater dome sports 360-degree views of salmon, cod, sharks, and rockfish moseying curiously around the subaqueous air bubble.
Inside the opulent Fairmont Olympic Hotel, Penelope The Beauty Bar?s team of multitalented technicians commandeers a full-body menu of traditional and med-spa treatments. From microcurrent technology to marine extracts, the staff wields effective regimens to smooth silhouettes plagued by blemishes, cellulite, or stuck-on ball gowns. Alongside each treatment's regular rates stands discounted member pricing, which avails itself to customers with the purchase of annual memberships that also include access to special promotions throughout the year. Penelope & The Beauty Bar was also nominated as best day spa in 2014's Best of Western Washington poll.
