Goldie is a modern beauty bar with a retro twist. Heavily influenced by the fashion, beauty and design trends of the 1960’s and 70’s, Goldie was formed with the goal of bringing a unique beauty experience to St. John’s. Here at Goldie we take the fun-loving attitude and extravagance of the disco era, and pair it with modern, minimalistic beauty and the idea of indulging in the simple luxuries of life. We strive to deliver the full Goldie experience to all of our guests, which is exactly why we offer a full range of hair and esthetics services, hand selected items for retail, and a cocktail and coffee bar menu that you’re sure to love!
