Soho Chic

Looking to scoop up some stylish new pieces for fall? lounge soho stocks cutting-edge clothes with a sense of street cred right on Greenwich Avenue. The new store, founded by fashion entrepreneur Jack Menashe, revives the brand that originally had locations in Manhattan and Miami. As its name suggests, the vibe inside this boutique mimics a nightspot, with club music playing, black textured walls, a giant onyx chandelier hanging above and walls of silver beads separating the different sections of the store. Shop here for well-priced basics, colorful tops, chunky knits, metallic-weave sweaters, cool tunics and a fab selection of jeans. You’ll also find statement pieces, such as snakeskin-pattern jeans and soft leather motorcycle jackets. The collections include the Lounge Soho line, as well as labels from up-and-coming designers. It’s the perfect spot to refresh your wardrobe and pick up fun clothes for a night on the town. 200 Greenwich Avenue, 203-340-2801; loungesoho.com

Dream Seekers

Looking for a beauty getaway without leaving town? The new  dream spa, a light-filled haven overlooking Greenwich Avenue, feels more like a resort destination spa than a close-to-home beauty zone. The serene, contemporary interiors are swathed in white and gray, with pale wood floors, plush couches and leather chairs in the lounge (don’t miss the chewy gingersnaps to snack on post-treatment), chic sconces and fixtures from Klaffs, and amenities such as a couples treatment room. “What sets us apart is that the environment is part of the experience,” says owner Lori Dodd, who founded Dream Spa in Westport and has a beauty background that includes managing Barney’s New York apothecary. “The product lines here are more exclusive than you’ll find at other places.” These include Sachajuan hair care from Sweden, Charlotte Rhys beauty and bath line from South Africa and natural skincare by Vermont’s Tata Harper.

While the spa focuses on the classics—try the Wake Up Call package for a facial, massage, mani/pedi and lunch from Terra, across the street. Dream also offers state-of-the-art treatments, such as the BainUltra system with heat therapy, aromatherapy, music therapy, light therapy and chromatherapy and also a Suvara spray tanning room. The full-service hair salon is staffed with experienced stylists and colorists, but blow-dry walk-ins are welcome. With enough space to accommodate bridal parties, the spa will host Thursday spa social nights for champagne, mini facials and blowouts and Sunday beauty brunches. In a rush? Book the Dream Essentials service for a mini massage, facial and blow-dry; in an hour and a half, you’ll be back on the Avenue, glowing. 151 Greenwich Avenue, 203-629-2525; dreamdayspa.com
