The Spa Happy Hour
Champagne and spa treatments under the stars? These San Diego spas know just how to bring on the night.
The best workdays are those that end with cocktails in a chic new lounge with your closest friends. But what if you could get a massage while you’re at it? Or order a round of pedicures with those cosmos?
Now you can, at one of the Spa Happy Hours being held throughout town. From luxury resort spas to day spas and salons, San Diego spas are hosting weekday happy hours featuring Champagne and a variety of discounted spa treatments. For its Spa Happy Hour, the Spa at La Costa Resort and Spa in Carlsbad offers courtyard pedicures and a discount on 50-minute massages. And at the Spa at the Del in Coronado, the happy hour menu includes a 50-minute deep cleansing facial for $120 (savings of $35), Champagne on the terrace, and a choice of a paraffin foot treatment or hand exfoliation. If that doesn’t get you closer to the weekend fast, I don’t know what will.
