From Beer To Bourbon, Four Seasons Is Getting Its Spas All Boozy
Possibly not the scrub selection
First it was massage with beer. Now it’s with bourbon. Are Four Seasons trying to tell us something?
Yes, hot on the heels of FS Vail’s bro-tastic beer massage comes word of FS Chicago’s Vintage Bourbon Massage – and this one is far classier than the last.
First comes the scrub: a wicked scrub of brown sugar, ginger, pecan and Kentucky bourbon. Then, once your pores have been suitably boozed up (and back bacteria slaughtered by the bourbon), comes the massage – not just any massage, but one with hot stones.
Does it get any better than a bourbon scrub and a hot stone rub? Indeed it does. The treatment ends at the bar: not the poncy spa bar, but the actual hotel bar, Allium, where you’ll sample its signature single-barrel bourbon. Presumably you’ll be expected to change out of your robe for this part.
The Vintage Bourbon Massage takes 55 minutes and costs $160 Mon-Thurs or $170 Fri-Sun. There’s also a “Men’s Bourbon Manicure & Pedicure” (y so sexist, Four Seasons?), but your next treatment should probably be the Detoxifying Massage ($170).
