Chill mode, activate! New York now has its very own beautiful escape, in the Lower East Side. Welcome, Chillhouse: A modern path to total relaxation. I am proud to share with you, my very first experience at my friend, Cyndi Ramirez-Fulton’s new cafe-spa haven. Picture this: a smell-good feel-good place where you can quite literally kick your feet up. Chillhouse oozes aroma of freshly brewed coffee, and lush coconut-blend candles by Boy Smells. From thoughtfully curated nail designs to exclusive turn-up brews and wind-down lattes, you can drink pretty and look pretty at the same damn time. If there was a chill-o-meter to measure the Zen of Chillhouse, it would explode—even the wallpaper is soothing.
When I arrived, I immediately received a big hug from Cyndi, and was welcomed to view the menu. My spidey-senses quickly picked up on the yummy goodness behind the bar. First up, a Golden Latte! Made from GOLDE Turmeric, this cozy cup of chill was exactly what I needed. As for my manicure, I decided to go with The Full Rodeo, utilizing Chillhouse’s 5-free gel polishes. Lady Fancy Nails created signature nail designs specifically for the spa, like ‘Matisse’ (which is what I got). Because each design is available in various color palettes, I opted for mauve and eggplant hues.
The space is so gorgeous, and something New York was missing. And just in case you weren’t aware, this one-of-a-kind spa comes direct from a daughter of an esthetician. Cyndi knew what was missing from the spa industry and gave us everything we never knew we wanted—including the cure for a hangover. Out all night, boozin’ and crusin’? No problem! Armed with a secret massage technique, Chillhouse provides all that you need to feel brand new again. Now, all that’s missing is you! Ready to #chillatyourwill?
