Find a couple of stools. The DJ’s good.
You ponder your options and decree: “Barman, I’ll have a round of your finest deep-tissue massage, please.”
Welcome to Le Posh, a new spa that thinks it’s a nightclub, opening today on Sunset Boulevard.
You’ll see what we mean as soon as you step inside. The modern lobby’s dominated by a leather bar, and flat-screens play a loop of Parisian stunners on a catwalk (think of it as the Model Channel).
They’re not technically selling booze here, but they’ll gladly pour you some champagne. And yes, that’s a DJ booth. But you won’t hear any Enya in this place—just a good beat, at a reasonable volume.
Once you’re sufficiently champagne’d, you’ll follow some birch trees toward the back, where you can get what you officially came for—a shave and a haircut, maybe, or a full-on four-and-a-half-hour tune-up that includes a massage, some foot reflexology (they use pressure points in your feet to wipe out stresses elsewhere in the body), a Gentleman’s Facial and, yes, even a Gentleman’s Manicure and Pedicure.
All in all, it’s sort of like happy hour, but with a more rigid focus on the tension in your upper back.
Or your upper everywhere.
