Monsieur, the highly anticipated luxury day spa designed and catered specifically for men, celebrated their grand opening this past June. It provides a unique environment for men to escape and get pampered with amenities from full hair services to massage and facials. This 3,200-square-foot, 2-story setting provides men with a one-stop-shop to relax and enjoy the company of male friends, while receiving their grooming needs. Housing a bar/lounge area with flat screen TV’s, retail shop, concierge service, massage room, airbrush tanning and full-service haircut stations, Monsieur caters to every guest’s specific need. With stylish yet classic decor, there is also central heating throughout the establishment in the form of cast iron radiators.
Owned and operated by sisters Golnesa “Gigi” Ghovanloo and Golnar Ghovanloo, true Renaissance women, the duo spent years researching the industry and honing their skills in the spa and salon world. As children, Gigi and Golnar had one goal- to become business owners. Armed with all the right tools and an incredible support system, they actualized their goal with the opening of Monsieur. “Our ultimate desire for Monsieur is to offer first-class services and amenities for a select clientele who are seeking a holistic spa experience in a modern, yet comfortable atmosphere, while maintaining his physical appearance and mental wellness,” explains Gigi.
Decorated with mahogany wood stations and accents of black, silver and white, Monsieur provides an inviting masculine serenity. Sectioned into three individual “zones,” each area is designed with a specific Zen-like theme. Zone One houses the massage rooms and amplifies tranquil music to enhance total relaxation; Zone Two includes waxing, air brush tanning, and haircut stations featuring upbeat tempos, while Zone Three, the lounge/bar area comes alive with international beats.
Monsieur welcomes guests to take advantage of full-service amenities, whether for a business meeting, bachelor party, monthly maintenance or Sunday sports day. Monsieur is not just a day spa; it’s a standard for men.
In addition to the day spa, Monsieur’s future plans include launching a men’s skincare line including face wash, toner, exfoliating masks, eye cream, moisturizers, after-shave and sun protective products designed for normal-oily and normal-dry skin.
