Treehouse Social Club is a funky, tropical playground in the middle of the East Village. One step inside the glamorous space feels blithely like home. After you're welcomed into the retro salon, you swap your coat for a floral, silk robe of your choice and are sat in a green harp seat to chat hair. After 10 minutes inside, you may find yourself requesting punk pixies and feathery shags, after admiring the staff’s exciting looks. The pandemic didn’t stop New York hairstylist and owner Mischa G from opening up her gorgeous gut-renovated shop in October 2020. The team aims for the social club to become just that—a social place where the LGBTQ+ community and beyond can gather for do’s and stay for something thrill-y. With a sprawling backyard oasis space attached to the lot, Mischa hopes to bring in future art shows, drag performances, karaoke and gay discos to the patio. But for now, the salon is already filled with color and life—Mischa enlisted a visual artist to create murals to pay homage to legendary drag queens and trans icons. Don’t miss the Dolly Parton bathroom downstairs either.
