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

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.
