Coming Soon: ThinkPink Nails & Spa at 215 East Houston

Posted on: December 15th, 2011 at 6:09 am by

Luxury rental complex The Ludlow first opened four years ago, and aside from a string of pop-up shops and a gallery installation by No Longer Empty, the massive ground level space at 215 East Houston has largely remained vacant. With il Laboratorio del Gelato already in the lion’s share of the commercial footprint, it seemed rather likely that another food establishment might piggy-back off the foot traffic.  That ain’t happening.

Indeed, a few weeks after brown paper was taped to the glass facade, we now know the incoming tenant.  The sign recently placed in the windows indicates that an upscale nail salon-slash-spa combo called ThinkPink Nails & Spa (not just a clever name) is moving to the neighborhood.  This Lower East Side location marks their fourth in Manhattan.

No word yet on official opening date.
