Treat yourself to a different kind of happy hour

Going out with your girlfriends to happy hour? Great!spario

Treating your tired feet, achy back or frizzy tresses to their own happy hour? Even better.

At the spa inside the Rio, you can enjoy Happy Hour Thursdays. Just like traditional happy hour, you can relax and unwind every Thursday from 3 p.m. – 7 p.m. with a “party menu” of spa treatments. Your spa happy hour begins with a complimentary cocktail at the lobby. Then it’s off to see your “spa-tender” as he or she treats you with one of the follow services:

  • Mojito: A zesty lime manicure and pedicure ($80)
  • Glass of Vino: A 50-minute deep-cleansing facial using D’vine, a wine-based product line ($85)
  • Piña Colada: A soothing Swedish massage with a splash of coconut and pineapple massage oil ($85)
  • Dry Martini: A ready-for-the-weekend hair blowout ($55)

To keep happy hour rolling, enjoy 2-for-1 drink coupons at iBar and complimentary access at VooDoo Lounge. If you live in Vegas, you’ll receive an additional 20 percent off (with a valid ID) and with every nine services booked you get the 10th one for free. For more information, call (702) 777-7779.

And who says you have to spend happy hour at the spa alone? Go ahead and bring your girlfriends. You’ll leave feeling refreshed with a different kind of buzz — people “buzzing” about how great you look.


Most folks take their Vegas jackpot winnings back home, but my dad decided to stay here instead. That’s how I left Seattle almost 20 years ago. I moved from greenery and rainy days to hot summers, palm trees and desert. As much as I love my hometown, I decided to stick around Vegas. This city just has so much to offer. You don’t even have to be a gambler, bar hopper or an all-night partier. I love Vegas for its awesome vegan-friendly spots, concerts, swanky hotel suites and spas so big, they’re like castles. The pool scene is not too shabby either, which is why I love taking stay-cations. Besides living it up -- Vegas style -- I’m hanging out with my handsome hubby, adorable baby girl, two cats and super-fluffy Shih-Tzu. I’m also a huge fan of '90s music, shows and movies. You can find me on Google+ and Twitter.
