Massage Escape Spa, which offers deep-tissue massage, hot stone massage, and foot massage, opened earlier this week at 2352 Wisconsin Ave. The spa occupies the second and third floors of the Head & Nails manicure shop building, which is located between Bourbon and Arcuri.

From the April 2013 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:
Heads & Nails manicure salon recently opened in the first floor of 2352 Wisconsin Ave., the former home of Shade & Shutter Shack. A massage therapy studio called Massage Escape Spa is planning to occupy the building’s second and third floors.
From the December/January 2013 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:
On October 2, the Massage Escape Spa Company won zoning approval to construct a massage spa at 2352 Wisconsin Ave., next door to Bourbon. The spa is planned for the building’s second and third floors. It will feature a reception area plus eight private massage rooms, according to plans submitted to the National Capital Planning Commission. As we have previously reported, the building’s first floor is in the process of becoming a nail salon.
From the September 2012 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:
Work has begun on a manicure shop in the first floor of 2352 Wisconsin Ave., the former home of Shade & Shutter Shack. A building permit posted in the window lists the shop’s name as Head and Nails. A therapeutic massage business planned for the building’s upper floors has applied for zoning approval under the name of Massage Escape Spa Company. A Board of Zoning Adjustment hearing on the matter is scheduled for October 2.
We’d heard rumors that part of 2352 Wisconsin Ave., the former home of Shade & Shutter Shack, would become a manicure shop, but now there’s proof. A building permit application filed last week for the vacant building—which is located next door to Bourbon (2348 Wisconsin Ave.)—is for “interior work for a nail salon,” a source at the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs tells us.
As previously reported, another part of the building is slated to be turned into a therapeutic massage business, if city approvals go through. Representatives of the business, Massage Escape Spa, will address Advisory Neighborhood Commission 3B at their June 14 meeting to request support for their plan.
A couple of weeks back, we reported a rumor that two upper floors of the vacant property at 2352 Wisconsin Ave., formerly home to Shade & Shutter Shack, had been rented by a massage business. Now, we have what looks like proof: a building permit application filed on Tuesday. Though the names of permit applicants are not publicly released, the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs does confirm that this particular applicant will need a special zoning exception because they want to use the space primarily for massages. Details as they develop.
We hear the ground floor of this building may have been rented to a nail salon. We earlier reported that next-door neighbor Bourbon (2348 Wisconsin Ave.) was seeking to expand to 2352 Wisconsin; now we’re hearing it’s only the patio they have their eye on. Bourbon owner Bill Thomas has not responded to our requests for comment.
From the April 2012 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:
Is there a massage business operating at 2352 Wisconsin Ave. (next door to Bourbon), the former home of Shade and Shutter Shack? It’s hard to say. We hear secondhand that the top two floors of the long-vacant building have been leased to a legitimate therapeutic massage business, but Brad Rozansky, the leasing realtor, will not confirm or refute this. The building has a troubled history with massage: in December of 2007, an illegal sexual massage parlor located in the basement of the property was shut down after a police raid.
From the April 2010 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:
As revealed at March’s GPCA meeting, the frozen yogurt shop that has been considering a spot on our commercial strip is called Mr. Yogato. The D.C.-based chain promotes a lively, goofy ambience at its Dupont Circle location with trivia games and discount challenges. No word yet on a Glover Park lease, but owner Steve Davis told GPCA members he was looking into the vacant storefront at 2352 Wisconsin, the Shade & Shutter Shack building.
