Getting Pretty at the BarSeptember 8, 2010 By: Nightclub & Bar Night Club and Bar Magazine
At the Denver Beauty Bar location, the staff caters to guests’ every need, especially where looking good is concerned. The bar concept doesn’t just “serve the customer beer, wine and spirits,” but it also “pampers the customer like he or she were at a salon.” That’s probably the reason “Project Runway” contestant Mondo Guerra decided to reach out and see if the bar would allow him to host a night.
Guerra is on the current season of the reality fashion design competition that began airing on Lifetime in August. Each Tuesday when the TV show airs, Guerra entertains guests during a viewing party at Beauty Bar. Customers at the bar also can get manicures with a complimentary Martini for $10, thanks to the bar’s happy hour called Manicures & Martinis that runs directly before the screening.
“While Mondo could potentially be a finalist, he’s under contract not to talk about it,” explains Beauty Bar Denver owner, Noah Ray McMahan. “He’s been designing in town since the ’90s, and he reached out to me in conjunction with a pop-up fashion store called Fabric Lab. They bring in fun stuff for guests as well, like last week’s DIY button-making station.”
Fabric Lab and Guerra are covering all the advertising for the event, which last week drew several hundred people to Beauty Bar.
