New store: Lush Spa

939.ss.newstores9390_MASTER

I first wrote about natural cosmetics brand Lush’s NYC spa back in August for Time Out New York‘s annual fall preview issue and was so excited for the English-inspired retreat to arrive stateside (they had previously existed only in the U.K.). The opening got pushed back a few months, as most construction projects in the city do, but I finally got to check it out in person this past weekend and was not disappointed.

As I noted in my new store writeup for this week’s issue, music plays a huge role in the treatments—the soundtrack to my Synesthesia massage acoustically captured 24 hours in the English countryside—and there’s a heavy British influence as a nod to the company’s heritage (expect your session to end with a proper cup of tea).
