Downtown Nail Salons and Fab Lunch Spots?

Hi ladies, I have some girlfriends coming into town next weekend from Chicago and they have never been to Austin.  I was thinking of doing manis/pedis on Friday and grabbing lunch and then shopping in SoCo area.  Any recommendations for nail salons and great places for lunch?  TIA!

  • I got my nails done for my wedding at  It was a pretty relaxing experience it was my first time to ever have my nails or toes done.

  • When I worked closer to downtown, I would get my mani/pedis at Polish (google the business and you'll find their site).  They have wine/water/coffee and the manicurist told me that if I ever wanted to come in w/a group of girls we could bring our own wine, etc and have a little mani/pedi afternoon.  Polish is located on So. 1st street, really close to SoCo shopping. 

    For lunch I would recommend South Congress Cafe (depending on budget, it can be pricey), or la Traviatta on Congress and 5th/4th street is super cute and fun for a group of girls. 

  • i got a great mani/pedi at milk and honey spa for $100...way more than i would normally pay. i had a gift card though :)

    then i got dinner at leaf, the awesome salad place within walking distance. theyre both in the new second street district. ?

  • I second Polish - but call soon because they book quickly!

  • I'm blanking on nail salons, but for food spots on S. Congress, I love the Woodland, S. Congress Cafe, Vespaio, and El Sol Y La Luna (also very good breakfast-- we like to take OOT-ers there). :)

  • At the last bachelorette party I went to we got mani/pedis at:

    It's on 6th close to 35 so it's probably not "close" if you're going to do lunch on SoCo, but we had a great time there.

  • Thanks all!  I went ahead and booked us at Polish.  Yay!  Now I just need to pick a lunch spot....
