Gabbing with girlfriends while getting a pedicure: Could anything be more relaxing? Yes! At Cosmos Beauty Bar, located in charming downtown Glen Ellyn,you can pamper yourself with a martini, cappuccino or champagne cocktail while your nails get gorgeous. Combining expert nail service with “the delightful addition of a full-service bar,” this unusual spa specializes in creating a festive atmosphere for girlfriend gatherings of all kinds.

Cosmos offers high-quality manicure and pedicure services in a welcoming atmosphere with feminine décor and friendly personnel. But the martini bar is what makes this place unique. The extensive martini menu includes flavors from Almond Joy to Watermelon. Coffee, wine, and other beverages are also available.

Although the bar is a signature feature, Cosmos also caters to the younger set. Kids’ manicures are only $8.00, making this a popular place for mother-daughter outings and tween birthday parties. In fact, multigenerational groups frequent Cosmos, because it’s a go-to destination for local wedding parties as well.

The spa can be booked for private parties of 8 to 22 people. While four of your girlfriends get pedicures, the rest can get manicures, mingle, sit in the cozy window nook or nosh at the bar. You supply decorations and food can be brought in or catered.

Be sure to make reservations in advance, because this place tends to book up, and you don’t want to miss out on the fun. If you do have to wait for your turn to be pampered, downtown Glen Ellyn offers antique shopping and many restaurants. Enjoy!
