Cocktails, cupcakes and curls: Indulge yourself at Benefit’s new pop-up in Soho
Being pampered, drinking cocktails and indulging your sweet tooth are among the favourite pastimes of many women. However, the prospect of all three at the same time usually seems a bit tricky. However, from this Friday and throughout March, ladies of London are in for a treat as Benefit Cosmetics are hosting a special pop-up offering the appealing trio. Curl’s Best Friend, a three-storey curl and cocktail bar is coming to Soho, where women can be as girlie as they want.
Customers can relive elegance of the 1950s beauty parlour across three chic and theatrical floors of pampering, glamour and fun. To mark the launch of Benefit’s new mascara Roller Lash, there will be the celebration of the curl, whether it be eyelashes or hair. Located on Greek Street, the ground floor will feature a bar, serving signature cocktails and cupcakes in vintage chairs, where you can get made up with the new Roller Lash.
On the 1st floor, the beauty parlour and curl station will be offering curly faux-blows from the hair-stylists and makeovers from the Benefit’s make-up and brow experts offering upper or brow wax and tints.
Finally, when the sun goes down, the ladies can head up to the secret Noir Bar on the second floor. The sleek, dark venue, inspired by Benefit’s They’re Real mascara, will be open from 7pm each night and serving delicious, sultry cocktails.
- Curl’s Best Friend runs from 27 February until end of March 2015 at 26 Greek Street, Soho, W1D 5DE. Nearest station: Leicester Square, Tottenham Court Road or Piccadilly Circus. Open Tuesday to Saturday between 11am-11pm (Noir bar open from 7pm).
