Full-service 2,000-square-foot spa on Polk Street. Loft-like space with yellow walls, skylight, filled with beautiful antiques. Rustic yet elegant.
You can’t move in, of course — but you might just want to after seeing the new Lavande spa. Like its other location in Cole Valley, it offers the best mani-pedis in the city (no-chip guarantee, $30 price tag, and a whopping number of polish options), as well as massages (deep tissue, hot stone, pregnancy, reflexology, Shiatsu, sport, and Swedish), facials (acne solution, alpha beta peel, antiaging, aromatherapy, bare back, “Gentlemen’s,” or organic herbal), and waxing. Perfect for a little me time. Or, if you’re in the mood to share, book a private cabana with your significant other or throw a romantic party.
A place to relax, recharge, and even entertain?
Beats most of the real estate in this town.
Lavande, 2139B Polk Street, between Broadway and Vallejo Streets (415-931-7389).
