Today’s news:

Salon or saloon? Beauty Bar a good look for Slope drinkers

The Brooklyn Paper

Finally! You can get ready for your night out on the town while you’re out on the town.

The geniuses at the Beauty Bar in Park Slope — the borough’s only beauty parlor-cocktail lounge hybrid — let you pair your $10 manicure with a salon-themed libation such as the “Paul Mitchell Swizzle” (vodka, grenadine, and mint concoction with crushed ice; $10) . It also offers a solid selection of beer on tap ($5–7) — which makes it perfect for grown-ups.

“It’s a place for people who want a more relaxed party and couples stopping by for a glass of wine,” said manager Sean McCormack.

The Beauty Bar brand has lured coifed-and-tattooed fashionista crowds in party towns such as San Francisco, Austin, and Portland, but its Bushwick location recently closed.

The Park Slope location is adorned with the same ’50s-style aesthetic, complete with vintage hair-drying chairs, mirrors and pink glittery walls.

But you don’t have to be getting your nails done to have a good time.

“We bring the ladies and the gentlemen follow,” McCormack said.

Tony V from Park Slope says:
Either Natalie is showing her ignorance or her laziness.

The original Beauty Bar is on East 14th Street in Manhattan (ever heard of that place?). And it is still there.

Never let it be said that the writers and editors here lift a finger to engage in any fact-checking or independent research.

Natalie doesn't care about Manhattan. Nor does the Brooklyn Paper.
