For many of us, a nail maintenance routine is one of the few times each month that we pause and allow ourselves a little glamour, blissfully alone. What better way to enhance that experience than to combine it with another of the world's most relaxing, indulgent hobbies: drinking. At most nail salons, you can get a glass of franzia or André Brut, but at DFW Nail Bar, a liquor license means you can order an old fashioned or a vodka tonic at a 15-foot-long bar. Drinks are complimentary, up to two per person, and once you're good and blitzed, you can warble out a few tunes in the salon's karaoke room. Owner Jennifer Tran has been in the nail business for 25 years and says she came up with the unusual concept through her world travels. The 5,000-square-foot spa opened in Denton last year. There are more than 500 polishes to choose from, plus six facial and massage rooms where you can be rubbed down with all-organic products. Stop by for happy hour discounts from noon to 4 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays.
