Le Chic Nail Spa Now Open at 128 Rivington

Posted on: February 9th, 2011 at 6:09 am by

Just when we thought a third gallery would occupy the address of 128 Rivington Street, a curveball was thrown in our direction. The middle storefront, sandwiched between Sloan Fine Art and Gallery One Twenty Eight, is now a nail salon called Le Chic Nail Spa. Proper signage is not yet in place, but there is a box of “menus” by the entrance.

This piece of storefront real estate has seen a good deal of activity in the last few years.  The bargain-bin Video Store occupied the space for a time, but eventually ceded the space to Czech-Austrian cafe Kinski in November 2009. The cafe didn’t have much in the way of luck either, and shuttered less than a year later.

At least there’s still another Kinski…
