Next time you need to schedule a manicure or pedicure, why not take it to the next level and choose a BYOB location? Whether enjoying a solo treatment or hosting a spa party with all your friends, we can’t think of a better way to de-stress than getting pampered while sipping a bit of bubbly at one of these favorite destinations.
1. Spa Space
A West Loop favorite since 2001, Spa Space (161 N. Canal St., 312.466.9585, spaspace.com) provides a full range of spa services in addition to a long list of manicure and pedicure options. For a wonderfully curated selection of wine, pop into Pastoral in the Chicago French Market (131 N. Clinton St., 312.454.2200, pastoralartisan.com) for the perfect pairing to go with your new French tips.
If you can’t make it to this local chain’s Old Town location at 1224 N. Wells St., which boasts its own martini and wine bar, head to its Streeterville outpost (McClurg Court and Ontario Street, 312.643.3100, arbrenails.com) for the signature manicure ($30), a rejuvenating experience that includes a vitamin wrap and paraffin wax treatment. Nearby UnCork-It (393 E. Illinois St., 312.321.9400, uncorkitchicago.com) can supply the bubbles.
3. Pinky Nail Chicago
Pinky Nail Chicago’s multiple locations (pinkynailchicago.com) are perfect for hosting a beauty-filled girls’ night out for up to 30 friends. If buying libations in bulk, better visit Binny’s (binnys.com) for an unbeatable selection of wine and Champagne.

One of the Gold Coast’s newest salons, New Age Nail Studio (832 N. State St., 312.265.0881) specializes in head-turning nail art and features more than 300 color options, along with vegan and organic beauty treatments. Swing by Potash Markets’ Sandburg Wine Cellar (875 N. State St., 312.266.4200, potashmarkets.com) beforehand to choose your favorite red or white.
