manicures and cocktails simultaneously?

foisiek Apr 15, 2008 01:54 PM

as a non-girly girl, i'm looking for a fun night out with the girls, but most definitely not a bachelorette-type night. i'm thinking low-key, casual dinner (but good food) and some dancing. manicures and cocktails would be lovely to start the night. any good ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Manis and cocktails. Fab. Now why didn't I think of that?

      Might as well order a rusty nail.

      Beauty Bar in NYC.

      short of that, in other cities girly-girl friends have hired people to come and do mani-peds at home for cocktail hour before heading out.

      there is someone who does specifically that (outcall nail service) and was profiled in the WaPo sunday magazine a few months ago although I suppose any nail tech might be contracted.

      unless you booked a private room at a venue I don't know I'd want to be at the next table...

        I think Diva in Georgetown on Wisconsin Ave has Thursday night manis and cocktails.
