There’s a new spa on the block.
Kings Salon and Spa, 7218 Fifth Avenue held its grand opening on April 30. The event came together thanks to the efforts of local activist Liam McCabe after McCabe — who had met the owner, Baha Orabi, through a mutual friend — discovered that the spa had opened but hadn’t had a grand opening.
McCabe offered his assistance to get the word out.
According to McCabe, who represented Congressmember Dan Donovan at the event, “This opening allowed for an integration of his business in the community by inviting people to come and visit the salon and spa.” McCabe also offered to be the “guinea pig” for a ceremonial first haircut.
He now swears by Orabi’s work and continues to go to Kings to get his hair cut. “Even my two boys, who prefer their hair cut a specific way, like getting their hair cut there,” added McCabe.
