We did a little research on the hot new subterranean beauty, fitness and wellness space, Underground at Le Parker Meridian and here’s what we discovered:
1. Grab a workout at Gravity. Complete with a rooftop pool and basketball court, this training facility located in the Parker Meridien is so much more than just a hotel gym. In fact, many New Yorkers have memberships here. Drop in for your regular workout, hire a live or virtual personal trainer or check out the new Quickie Program and get some real results.
2. Relax with a massage or facial at Moonshine. Just when you thought you’ve done the spa experience, Moonshine’s on the scene, so get ready to be transported to a different era. As you enter the candle-lit relaxation/waiting room complete with antique lamps, Turkish rugs and comfy chairs with faux fur throws, you’ll be offered a shot of Moonshine to relax and off you go to a spa/speakeasy experience set in the wild west. There’s even a sweet canary chirping in the corner. This spa offers 60 or 90 minute facials and massages in treatment rooms named after Prohibition cocktails. Customize your experience by choosing your playlist and drift into bliss.
3. Rock amazing hair with a blowout at DryBar. We’ve been traveling down to the Flatiron for this amazing $40 blow dry deal (check our post a while back) and now that they have opened this new midtown location, we just can’t get enough! Check in, choose your style from the look book and sit back with a glass of complimentary champagne, a healthy nibble from Petite Blue Dog just steps away and watch chick flicks like Pretty Woman for the 350th time. It just doesn’t get any better.
