While the fitness center portion of Pura Vida is for members only, the fourth floor spa – Nectar – welcomes members and non-members alike. Nectar offers more than 20 different treatments, including massages, body treatments, manicures, pedicures, and facials – you name it.
No formal announcements have been made regarding additional tenants, but rumors have long circulated around another bookstore taking part of the ultra-visible location.

One of our favorite Cherry Creek boutiques, Ten Thousand Villages, 2626 E. 3rd Ave., has been promoting sustainable development and fair trade philosophies long before the word “green” stopped indicating a color and started becoming a “buzzword” and marketing philosophy.
Fair Trade policies work to promote sustainable development while protecting the environment. Ten Thousand Villages maintains long-term relationships with artisans from around the world, ensuring earnings from their products go to the artists themselves, and providing a vital source of security during difficult times ranging from natural disasters to civil unrest.
Ten Thousand Villages will celebrate World Fair Trade Day on Sat., May 10, 10a.m.-5p.m. Festivities will include an Indian-themed tea tasting, a Fair Trade quiz earning discounts for successful test-takers, and a special showing of the DVD, Ten Thousand Villages: Artisan Stories From Around The World.
