Besides professional cuticle care, what do you want from a nail salon? If your answer is “Cocktails, coffee and pizza,” you’ll love Frost, which accommodates a bar and a few tables in addition to the armchairs on which you can have your nails looked after. Besides offering a wide range of nail treatments, Frost offers many other services, including facials, tanning, weight loss program, herbal face and breast lifts. The adjoining cafe/cocktail bar offers small refreshments to accompany your pampering. A tasteful beer selection includes Belgian beers and American craft brews. Try the coffee-tinged Old No. 38 Stout, or drink San Miguel if you’re on a budget. The cocktail list favors sweeter drinks like the Appletini and Chocolate Martini, with the signature Frosty Nails delivering a rush of melon, coconut and pineapple, disguising a well-liquored base. If you’re peckish, there are cupcakes from Lollipop Bakery, and Gung Ho! deliveries are just a phone call away.

Decent burger; staff bordering on the retarded

Nice little bar with a good burger and decent drinks. Should have a nice ambience.

Concept ruined by basically idiot nongmin staff who pump their crappy Mandobeat out of the back room at 200db and hold incredibly loud conversations across the space over the top of the chilled soundtrack that the owner likely carefully designed for the place. Fine in a Korean chicken n beer bar, but this clearly isn't supposed to be one.

See You There

I visit Frost twice, three times a week, en route to Yoga Yard or the swimming pool. I come to eat, chat with Jeff. I usually chose salad and an entree. Today, we talk about the tofu burger. I’m no longer a vegan, I say. Oh, it’s still great though, he says. We talk about the smoked tofu and where he sources it from and how he prepares it. I ask how he achieves that amazing texture, I say again how good it always tastes. Today I want the Tofu Burger, I decide.

Jeff disappears into the kitchen singing “My Way” by Frank Sinatra, loudly. His wife is in the nail salon at the back of the premises. One of his sons is out front striking the air with marshal arts moves. The latest addition, in a tiger babygrow, is being energetically passed round the staff, thrown up in the air.

Its early evening and a man who sounds German is drinking beer at the bar, watching American Football playoffs on the TV, asking questions in English to the wait staff. Near the door, a French couple are in deep conversation in French, over cocktails and freshly prepared pizza, stopping to ask the waiter in Chinese to refill their glasses.

I am at the back, idly reading a book, looking up when the door opens, forkfulls of salad replenishing my appetite. Tofu Burger has arrived, four relishes, one of which I will use, land on the table too. The spicy one today, I think.

I am fond of licking plates, usually plates with something sweet. I order the Apple Crisp, with Caramel Ice Cream. I leave no trace.

Frost is a fun, easy, familiar place that is also a family place, family run. I go there to eat and chat and feel at home.

They have fantastic food at really great value. The BEST beverages. Always open. Lovely place. Lovely people.

See you there.

Maybe best burger I have had in Beijing

Title says it all. I am a man so I don't pay money for people to paint my toenails so I can't comment on anything other than the burgers which are pretty good. They are a little small but it isn't too expensive so I go there a decent amount. I definitely wouldn't say the owners seem friendly, but one of them is a hot Chinese lady so hard to complain. Never got a drink there because they are expensive and I usually just get a burger after working out. 10 times better than blue frog.

Good concept, crappy result

Was there last week and had their Frosty Island Tea. While I could comment on the fact it took 10 minutes to make when there were no other customers, I will focus instead on the drink. I was very disappointed by the fact that I paid 55 kuai for a minimal amount of drink with even less alcohol.

I get that the point of a good cocktail is that you do not taste the alcohol. But when you are getting a martini size glass which is half full and you still cannot taste any of the liquor that is supposed to be in it, can you justify paying 55 kuai?

If I was at Apothecary or Xiu, then 55 kuai might be acceptable (but would still be much stronger), but to skimp out on the alcohol while charging a premium on a side street with cheap furniture was too much for me.

Will most definitely not be going back.
