Brooklyn Beauty Bar

Attention ladies…I have news for you! I’ve found THE perfect beauty salon for you lovely lasses who enjoy a good time, champagne and of course being pampered.

It’s called the Brooklyn Beauty Bar, it’s located on the corner of James and McLachlan streets in Fortitude Valley and it is amazing, both aesthetically and in its beauty therapy treatments. But Brooklyn Beauty Bar isn’t like everywhere else, and they take pride in the fact that they are completely and utterly unique. And the best part? Brooklyn Beauty Bar specialise in group packages where you can indulge in one of the salons party packages with a bunch of girlfriends in tow.


Brooke Jesberg, owner and founder of Brooklyn Beauty Bar, said that they have found their niche and honed in on it by creating a beauty salon that is made for the cosmopolitan woman without intimidating the men in our lives who, like us, want assistance in their grooming from time to time (in fact, Brooke said there are many husbands and boyfriends who feel very comfortable coming into the salon for any of their men’s services).

Brooke said many people come into the conveniently located salon on their lunch breaks or between errands, while others stop in for a treatment or service en route to an event. That’s the atmosphere that Brooklyn Beauty Bar has established and the reputation it upholds.

Brooke said she wanted to concentrate on creating a salon that catered for the cosmopolitan woman who wants to feel like they’re at a day spa without having to clear their schedule for the day. In doing that the team are focused on “old fashioned customer service,” which is noted as soon as you walk in the door and are greeted with a smile before being handed a chilled glass of water with fresh lemon.

Whether your there for tanning, waxing, eyebrow threading, nail beauty, a makeup session, I.P.L or skin treatments such as the Glow & Go facial, the Mini Herbal Peel and Collagen Stimulation Facial, you will instantly feel the warmth of the salon and appreciate (and perhaps fall in love with) its old school charm. And you know your in good hands as the salon only uses the best equipment, technology and brands, including O.P.I nail polish, Dr. Spiller skincare, St Tropez and Vani-T tanning products and the best I.P.L technology from France.


And while they have back-to-back appointments in any one of their 4 luxury treatment rooms, it’s their famous party packages that clients love the most.

There are four packages to choose from – the Manhattan Mani Party, the Queens Pedi Party, The Brooklyn Experience and the Bridal/Party Package – all of which include a glass of champagne from the in-house bar (Brooke said they are one of the only beauty salons to have a liquor licence!).

Brooke said their unique party packages have become so popular that the salon has been renovated three times already to keep up with the demand of up to 8 parties a week, sometimes more.

Each party group is treated to intense luxury as they sit at the beautiful wooden bar, the long bench underneath an impressive portrait of the Brooklyn Bridge or in the super comfy pedicure lounges, making any one of the packages perfect for a unique gift, a birthday celebration, a hens or bridal party or as an addition to your girls day out.

Irresistible right?! Brooklyn Beauty Bar is open from Monday to Saturday by appointment only. Be sure to check out their website here or pop into the salon to experience their old school Brooklyn charm first hand.
