A decade later, Ruby Room stays fresh
The new salon area at Ruby Room
For a reflective way to usher in 2013, book a New Year's Eve suite complete with steam shower at Ruby Room, the spiritually focused Wicker Park spa, salon, shop and inn that's currently celebrating its 10-year anniversary.
NYE guests will be served Champagne and chocolate, and they can pick any two services off the spa menu for $150-- we think a Thai massage paried with an astrology session for a peek at the year ahead sounds about right.
Changes are in store for the 13,000- square-foot spa in 2013; for starters, its healing sanctuary has been moved to the first floor from the second in order to make way for new overnight rooms.
Many more products-- including great gift items-- have been added to Ruby Room's boutique, where you can now buy shampoos ($11) and lotions ($10) by Acure Organics, a vegan leather handbags and makeup cases by Stella Grey for about $35 and energy-charged crystal jewelry by local line GlamRocks (necklaces for about $50).
Also look for a new tea bar (samples available daily and a just-installed 12-foot crystal bar; if you're drawn to a particular stone and want to know why, ask for a complimentary consultation with a healer.
If enhancing your inner beauty is a resolution this year, here's where to start.
