Financial District

Establishment neighborhood
FaceLove
45 John St., Financial District
If you’ve never had a massage dedicated to relaxing the muscles in your jaw, forehead, scalp and entire face...it’s insanely relaxing. FaceLove’s three signature treatments—FaceLove, PureLove, and WholeLove—all focus on massage, exercise, and acupressure to stimulate circulation and release inflammation. (Treatments are offered as 30 or 45-minute sessions.) Not only will a clenched jaw or furrowed forehead feel miraculously released, you’ll emerge looking pretty amazing, too.
Rise by We
85 Broad St., Financial District
WeWork—the round-the-world network of comfy, breezy (decidedly un-corporate) workspaces rented out to people and businesses—has always been an ideal HQ with its meditation rooms, retreats, and fitness class offerings. And now with Rise by We, its new holistic wellness club in NYC's financial district (more locations to roll out down the line), the brand’s dreamed up a respite from the swivel chair where you can get up and move in any number of workout classes (from kickboxing to yoga to personal training sessions), as well as stoke some serious relaxation vibes at their Superspa. There are steam and sauna rooms, amazing massages, a circulation-rousing cold water plunge, and a communal—and coed—hammam area. The spa’s café makes killer juices—and come evening, healthy-ish cocktails. And if you can’t commit to a full-on membership, Rise’s $100 four-class access pass option is a solid option.
Caudalie
185 Greenwich St., Financial District
This family-owned company was founded in Bordeaux, so their entire approach to beauty is grounded in a less-is-more, great-skin-first approach that feels very French. They're famous for a menu of super-relaxing facials—which can be selected to target anti-aging, radiance (and correcting), firming, moisture, and detoxification—but their New York boutiques also offer three body treatments, like a Bordeaux-inspired vine wrap. We're partial to their express facials, which, at just a half hour, can easily be squeezed into a lunch break; pretty clutch for their new, office-convenient location in the Financial District.

Cos Bar
250 Vesey St., Financial District
The only thing better than Cos Bar's famously vast offering of makeup, fragrance, bath, and beauty products (including the newly-launched goop organic skincare line) is the exceptional customer service provided by the knowledgeable, genuinely nice beauty consultants, which is exactly how founder Lily Garfield envisioned it back in 1976 when she opened the original Aspen outpost. There are Cos Bars all over the country, including Montecito, La Jolla, and Scottsdale.
Dig Inn
80 Broad St., Financial District
Dig Inn’s philosophy is “farm to counter,” which means that they serve sustainably sourced, usually local food in a casual setting and in a price range that makes it a reasonable option for everyday lunch. The salads and the market plates are easy to take back to the office (or home for dinner), and the menu changes with the seasons, so you won't ever be bored with the offerings. There are locations in Morningside Heights, Union Square, Tribeca, and in Midtown on 52nd, Madison, and 55th, in Lower Manhattan on Pine, Liberty, and Broad St., in Nomad, and off Madison Square Park.

Just Salad
90 Broad St., Financial District
Just Salad was an early adopter of the fast casual dining option, and they now have locations in practically every New York neighborhood. While they have some great existing menu options (including a few rotating seasonal choices), the main move here is to create your own salad and have it chopped. The ingredients are always really fresh, as they source them from within 350 miles of the restaurant at New York, New Jersey, and Vermont farms; everything is organic and exclusively non-GMO. Other locations: Flatiron, Fashion District, Financial District (on Broad St., Gold St., and Broadway), 30 Rock, Murray Hill, Chelsea (there's one on 8th Avenue and one on 6th Avenue), World Wide Plaza, Lexington, Park Slope, Downtown, Upper East Side (on 3rd Avenue and also on 1st Avenue), Hudson Square, Downtown Brooklyn, Macy’s Herald Square, Upper West Side, and the Woolworth Building.
