Do you like your nail bars served straight up, or with a twist (of lime)? Getting your nails done is a classic treat, up until you need to choose which colour you want (heavy breathing intensifies). So, wouldn’t it be just peachy if someone gave you a cup of calm down before the big decision?

Someone agrees with you, and that someone is Arbour Nail Lounge and Bar. That’s right, there’s a new kid in town that specialises in all things nails (and booze!).

From cocktails to wine to a humble cup of coffee, Arbour will keep you sip happy whilst you get pampered. How good!?

Located in the Brunswick Street beauty precinct, Arbour has swiftly made a notable – and delicious – addition. The brain-child of Fairlie Exintaris, owner of Miss Luxe Luxury Brow Studio, takes on all mani-pedi needs for every gal (and guy!) in need of someone that nails their profession.

Let’s get back to the real business though, and that’s drinking at a flippin’ lux nail bar. Arbour has their own signature cocktail, aptly named after the bar.

A clever mix of Hendrick’s gin, elderflower liqueur, prosecco, cucumber and blueberries, it’s the ultimate start to pre night out pamper.

Fellas, don’t think this one is just for the ladies either. All your man-icure needs are covered, complete with brews from the ever crafty Stone & Wood, Burleigh Brewing Co. and Monteith’s.

Not being limited to alcohol, you can have a well deserved chill sesh with your favourite cup of Death Before Decaf coffee, a matcha latte or West End Tea Co. tea. It’s safe to say that brews and brushing up the ol’ nails go hand in hand (when someone else is doing the second part for you).

Treat yourself to a cheeky session asap! Arbour Nail Lounge & Bar  Keeping the G&G up to date with all the latest tasty tidbits requires a lot of double lattes and espresso martinis, so we occasionally need to give out some sponsored love. But rest assured that we only work with businesses that we think are really nifty, as the sponsor for this post is!
