Shaker’s New and Unique Beauty Bar (Literally)

Last week I had the pleasure of hosting a very intimate, and private gathering at a new local spa. I had previously been told how amazing this place was from a former colleague, who frequented the downtown location, but I never made it there to see. Then one day while in a meeting at Market Hall in the Van Aken District, I was told that a new location would be opening up right across the street. I was immediately super excited! This was close to home and perfect for the area, the countdown for me was on until the doors opened!

I was introduced to the beautiful and kind owner Jamie, following another meeting at Market Hall. I walked out after finishing my coffee and could see from across the street I was going to love this place– the sun was out, the garage was up and the bar was front and center. I asked if I could host a private party and we started planning!

There were a few things I loved about the place immediately (before having my service)- that I knew my guests would appreciate.

  1. The ambiance was swanky and sexy yet chill.
  2. The music was fun and upbeat (like seriously would put anyone in a great mood)
  3. The space was open, well lit and clean.
  4. It was far from your typical nail shop… it offered a bar and hand crafted drinks!  You honestly can’t experience this anywhere else!

On the day of my Courtney Covers Cleveland private party, the weather was a little gloomy and it was drizzling. It didn’t put a damper on me… because lucky for us, the garage was open, so you could still see the views of the Van Aken District and you couldn’t get wet inside. All my guests came in and joined me right at the bar. With any private party, you are able to have a signature drink, “The Courtney” which is what I had all night, was Tito’s Vodka, blueberry lemonade (and something else- just ask for The Courtney). It was very good, looked super cute (yes drinks can be cute look at the picture above) and reasonably priced!

I booked the party on a Thursday at 6pm. I invited people to come at 5:30 to enjoy the space before our services began. When it was 6pm, half of us stayed at the bar and the other half started being serviced by their amazing staff. I don’t say that lightly either. The entire team was above and beyond friendly, welcoming, and more than accommodating to make sure everyone was taken care the entire time. I mean if my cup drink was low during my pedicure they were asking the bar to refill it. If the water was getting remotely cold, it was being replaced. The service was great!

All of my guests enjoyed the Luxury Pedicure and a few enjoyed manicures as well. Another thing that I LOVED was that the pedicures come customized. What does this mean? well… It means you are literally choosing the fragrance of your foot scrub, hydrating lotion and essential oil. I picked lavender and as soon as I was seated I was surrounded by the scent and relaxed. The smell was so amazing and refreshing I just sat back, closed my eyes and was ready to enjoy the rest of the experience. Once you’ve selected your scents, you can select the drink you want while you are seated AND… whether or not you want to experience your pedicure in silence! Yes that’s right, you can tell them you want to enjoy your pedicure without talking during your service.

The space is just beautiful. It’s modern, it’s intimate and the service is spectacular. I’d recommend it for any private event for ladies (birthday, bachelorette, ladies night etc.) or if you need to get your nails/ feet done in a cute space- it’s perfect! don’t forget the option to enjoy a handcrafted cocktail at the same time. Really, if you just want to meet a friend for a drink- in a super cute space– you can come here too! There’s so many reasons to stop by and check it out! Husbands looking to buy giftcards this is a great option! Not to mention there’s ample parking in the area, and so much more to do!  You can shop at the stores, you can eat at the restaurant or Market Hall… you can workout at the gym or you can enjoy ice cream 🙂 Let me also add you have the option of bringing food in (which I did not do) but it s great option!

I encourage you to visit Manifest in the Van Aken District and tell them you read about them on Courtney Covers Cleveland!

  • Today, February 17th @rake_now celebrates the act of “paying it forward” by performing a random act of kindness every hour for 24 hours.

I very proudly participated by randomly performing acts or kindness throughout my day. I surprised a family at the movies with free tickets, purchased snacks at the concession stands and picked up someone’s groceries at Whole Foods. It might not seem like much but I feel good knowing I unexpectedly blessed them today! .

@rickonia my shirt came just in time to wear today! Kudos for all the work you’re doing to make a difference! Support the movement #RakeNow #RAKE
  • Yesterday #CourtneyCoversCleveland did two things for the first time in CLEVELAND:

1. I went to @dobamatheatre in Cleveland Heights - which is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year! Crazy how things have been around for so long but we don’t know about them or we haven’t experienced them. This is one of those places you will be happy you now know about! 
2. I enjoyed the arts alone and loved it! We always look to do things with people- go eat, go to a show- but it’s actually refreshing (and great self care) to do things alone sometimes. Soo... stop letting people prevent you from trying new places. Get up and go! .
.
Yesterday I saw the final production of Skeleton Crew and it was phenomenal! The play was about a struggling Detroit automotive plant, and a few remaining workers who try to figure out how to move forward if the plant goes under. The actors were extremely talented and had me on the edge of my seat the entire time! Might I add it was an all black casts which  was amazing to see! Not sure how common that is but it wasn’t something I was expecting. .
.
My only wish I would’ve attended earlier so that you guys had a chance to see it but lol I had a few challenges trying to make it to myself.  Thank You Alex Smilovich for the invitation. I will most certainly be back and encourage others to go as well.

  • It’s basketball season so you know what that means... sleepovers every weekend! .

Lucky for me, @mcdonalds recently added chicken to its breakfast menu with the Chicken McGriddles® and the McChicken Biscuit Sandwich (yum!). Available nationwide as early as 6am. Perfect before a game when we are on the go or when I’m too tired to cook breakfast! Chicken sandwiches for them and McCafé Premium Roast Coffee for me! .

I’m giving away a $20 @mcdonalds giftcard to a basketball mom who will be having sleepovers all AAU season! Comment below and tag some basketball moms! .
