Shanghai Spa, a nail salon/ spa, opened recently on the corner of Fifth Avenue and Carroll Street, in the space last occupied by Rita knox Realty, which closed in December after 27 years.
The spa specializes in lots of different varieties of manicures and pedicures, facials, waxing and threading, eyelash/ eyebrow treatments, microdermabrasion, and massages. They also offer a few spa packages, which include treatment combos like mani/pedis, massages, and facials. Prices are reasonable; a manicure starts at $12, a pedicure starts at $20, a bikini wax costs $18, and their most expensive offering, a seaweed body mud wrap, costs $280.
The space seems nicely laid out, divided into lots of smaller rooms but with a waiting area that seems pretty relaxing. It's open seven days per week, from 10 AM- 9:30 Monday-Saturday and on Sundays from 10- 8:30.
Shanghai Spa, 242 Fifth Avenue Brooklyn NY 11215. 718-788-8387.
