Last week, I payed a visit to the Cowshed Spa, housed on the 3rd floor of The Soho House New York in the Meatpacking District. I was all but ready to move in—the tranquil atmosphere was instantly relaxing, the delicious scents wafting about were intoxicating, and I wanted to steal the organic-meets-glam decor (think crystal chandeliers and natural wooden walls) for my own apartment.
The spa is for exclusive use of the Soho House's private members—but those velvet ropes lift if you want to host a private spa party. A great idea for a bridal shower or bachelorette party, the spa hosts what they call "Pretty Parties," during which the spa's therapists will be on hand to offer 30-minute versions of whatever treatments you and your guests would like; after everyone has been properly pampered, you all sit down to a three-course dinner. For $295 per person, all drinks, food, and treatments are included—plus, everyone gets a goody bag of Cowshed products to take home. For more information, call 212-627-9800. —Lauren Matthews, editor, Brides New York
