There are some pairings that are so perfect that they feel meant to be. Burgers and beer. Wings and football. Peanut butter and jelly. You catch our drift — before long, it's hard to imagine having one without the other.
Our favorite pairing, though, is one that doesn't get nearly the attention it deserves: mani-pedis and wine. Thank goodness for Zaza Nail and Wine Lounge in San Francisco for righting this aggregious wrong. And doing so with serious style.
Zaza, located in San Francisco's charming South Park neighborhood, has created an atmosphere of relaxation and fun that will automatically put you in a celebratory mood, whether you're there for an event or a solo service. Treatments range from quick pick-me-ups to luxurious indulgences — we love seasonal specials like Pumpkin Spice Pedicures, and their roster of regular offerings featuring housemade scrubs and lotions bolstered with essential oils. All of their nail treatments are non-toxic, too, a boon for customers and employees alike.
The space adds to the feeling of worthy indulgence, too. A soft grey palatte and lounge-like seating make for a comfortable, sleek setting — funky accents like macrame wall hangings add a dose of personality, while work from local makers and artists is featured throughout.
And then there's the wine. Zaza offeres a sommelier-curated list with an emphasis on bubbles, plus rose, white, and red, all available by the glass or bottle. Friday's feature an evening happy hour with Bottlecoat wine flights and a chance to meet their sommelier.
Ready to make Zaza a part of your regular rotation? Us, too. And it's a must for events — they offer everything from small group packages, featuring combinations of beauty treatments and bottles of wine, to full venue buyouts with catering options and customized services. Sounds like the perfect place for your next birthday or bachelorette party to us.
To start, treat yourself to Zaza. You'll never want a manicure without a glass of bubbles again.
