A full serve beauty bar and bou que, Envie is the place to find the perfect gi for both men and women. Envie, is the product of a young, wildly talented entre- preneur Shane Holman and is a perfect storm of western chic and haute couture. Every element of the bou que has a piece of Shane, "I went for a chic elegant look with a rus c western feel. We wanted it to be a fun space so that when you walk in it's not like any- where you've ever been. You don't have to live here so you don't have to love it, you just get to enjoy it."
