Beauty Bar got its start in New York City in 1995, when Paul Devitt turned a four-decade-old salon into a bar, keeping most of its vintage glory intact, right down to the hair dryers. Since then, he's opened Beauty Bars in Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Las Vegas and Austin. Like those clubs, the Denver version will feature furniture and equipment salvaged from old salons, including Paris Salon of Beauty, a '60s-era beauty parlor in New Jersey.
While this club will have plenty of vintage kitsch, it will also sport state-of-the-art, German-made KS Audio systems in the front and main rooms, which will both have their own DJ booth and bar. And in keeping with a tradition started at the original Beauty Bar, Denver's will also feature a Martinis and Manicures happy hour from 5 to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, when $10 gets you a signature cocktail and a manicure from the in-house cosmetologist.
