Treat Yourself This Weekend in the Magic City
Unique Ways to Pamper Yourself in Birmingham, AL
Because you deserve it!
Today we’re going to look at some surprisingly affordable luxury services around the magic city. Need to take a break and unwind, but too tired to leave town? No worries! There’s tons of ways to treat yourself right here in Birmingham.
1 – Eat Local: Treat yourself to one of Birmingham’s favorite dining spots that focuses on farm to table offerings. The Food Bar is a Cahaba Heights restaurant marketing its self as “not pretentious just delicious”. Really feel like treating yourself? Try the Tiramisu or Warm Lavender Pound Cake.
2 – Get your drink on: Birmingham has a thriving nightlife. But if you’re looking for a unique atmosphere with affordable mixed drinks and the option to go anonymous and dress up in a themed costume, The Atomic Lounge is the place to be.
3 – Treat yourself to a therapeutic massage: Just over the mountain in Vestavia, you’ll find Birmingham Massage Couple. They offer licensed massage therapy at a discounted rate. Check out their specials page to see if there are any current promotions you can take advantage of. Oh, and they have a sauna!
4 – Get an early start: A day full of relaxation and pampering can be tiring! Start your day off right with a signature latte from Red Cat Coffee. I prefer the Bengal, but they’re all good and full of sugar and caffeine.
5 – Staycation anyone? Here’s an idea for you. What if you found the perfect destination right here in Birmingham complete with a golf course to keep the husband busy and a spa on site to make you look and feel amazing? That’s the Renaissance Hotel right here in Birmingham.
6 – Look your best: Sure you want to feel good, but what if you could also take some time off to look good? Personally, there are a few spa services that I’m a bit apprehensive on like Botox and chemical peels. But if you’re like me, there are a few legit medical practices offering cosmetic services in Birmingham. So why not check into that so you can look and feel your best?
7 – Treat yourself to a sugar coma: Let’s face it, we’re in the south. And if there’s one thing we love in the south, it’s pure cane sugar in its many forms. We like to add a small amount of tea and ice to it on a hot summer day. That’s just who we are. So why not get your just deserts at a local favorite like Edgar’s Bakery or Big Spoon Creamery?
8 – A New Look: A day of pampering wouldn’t be complete without a new hairstyle. Treat yourself to a new look at the Serenity Salon & Spa in Helena or check out Forecast Salon if you need to stay closer to the city.
9 – End your day on cloud 9…maybe literally: Check out this EventBright page full of “Ladies night out” venues all over Birmingham. Want to end your day on Cloud 9? They have a 420 Reggae Night listed, guess when…April 20th. Or if you’re feeling a bit dirty, there’s a Streak & Stroke event coming up on May 27th. It’s like any other group painting venue, only with a nude male model! If that won’t fly with the husband, check out the Ladies Night Make & Take Essential Oils party on the 17th of April.
Have any other ideas? We’d love to hear about it in the comments!
