Free Relaxation Lounge Opens in Tysons Corner Center

In the middle of the hustle and bustle of the Tysons Corner Center mall, a space that offers a moment of calm has opened up.

On the first floor of the mall, “The Lounge” is a free respite from the noise and consumerism of the rest of the mall. Five chair swings are scattered across the room with boxes providing outlets for charging. The chairs are fairly secluded, offering privacy for work or a quick mid-day respite.

The lounge is part of Brandbox, a suite of rotating stores which opened in November.

The location is still working out some kinks, like spotty wi-fi and an occasionally glitchy TV. There was also no staff available at the location today and the reaction from most passersby was confusion, with several wandering into the back of the facility by accident.

In addition to the free relaxation, one Brandbox retailer is offering an experience this week that promises to be an alternative to the usual mall hubbub.

On Thursday (March 21), cosmetics store Winky Lux is scheduled to host a demonstration event. Admission costs $10, but attendees are given a $10 Winky Lux gift card and other goodies.

“We’ll be offering product demos from 5-7 p.m.,” the online-oriented retailer said on the event page. “Matcha themed refreshments from Kung Fu Tea and Lolli & Pops and goodie bags to the first 25 attendees!”
