The Plaza Hotel’s renowned Caudalie Vinothérapie Spa, a spot which caters to the likes of Alexander Wang, Emma Roberts and Tyra Banks, has found itself some new digs.
Real estate firm Cushman & Wakefield announced today that it has arranged the relocation of the wine-focused spa to a spot on the Upper East Side, at 819 Madison Avenue (between East 68th and 69th Streets.)
“We are proud to have represented Caudalie in its relocation from The Plaza hotel to 819 Madison Avenue,” said Cushman & Wakefield’s Executive Director Eric Le Goff. “Caudalie was attracted to this prestigious location, its upscale retail residents and its high volume of foot traffic. We’re confident that this new neighborhood will be efficient in serving the company’s needs.”
The new location is surrounded by luxury retailers including Valentino, Dolce & Gabbana, Chloe, Cartier and Prada.
Husband and wife, Bertrand and Mathilde Thomas, founded the luxury French skincare company in 1995 on the vineyards of their family estate.
This isn’t the first high-profile departure from the Plaza. Last year LLNYC cover star and celebrity chef Geoffrey Zakarian was chopped from the hotel, where he oversaw the food and beverage programs at the famed Palm Court and Oak Room. According to the resulting lawsuit, the Plaza has allegedly abandoned, or at least shelved, its plans to renovate the long-shuttered Oak Room, and fired Zakarian as a result.
It’s currently unclear why or when the spa is leaving.
