‘Chillhouse’ Eases onto Essex Street, Serving Coffee and Massages
After months of planning and build-out, Chillhouse is now up and running on Essex Street. And already drawing crowds; the place was busy last night when we ambled past.
The kitschy concept is a hybrid that pairs spa services with a small cafe menu (i.e. tavern parlor). Touted as the “modern path to total relaxation with style, character and ease” Chillhouse patrons can purchase Parlor Coffee, and an assortment of teas, beer, and wine, along with pastries from Maman cafe. (Tavern Wine license was approved by the State Liquor Authority yesterday.) There is also a ten-seat nail bar and an area for overpriced massage treatments.
Chillhouse, not to be confused with the legendary Chillmaster, was founded by Cyndi Ramirez (Taste the Style) and Den Hospitality.
