The west side's best salon

The correct address is 50 West 72nd street, located between Columbus & Central Park West.

Excellent equipment and a friendly staff.

Great Experience

The salon is immaculate and the staff is friendly and very helpful. I've never been to a tanning salon as I tan easily outside, but the staff was more than happy to provide advice on what to do with my tan lines before my winter wedding. Got some nice color and will go back to get a nice glow going.

SUNLESS TANNING IS AWESOME!!!

I did a bed and Mystic tan and it came out awesome! They demonstrated everything perfectly (cause my tan came out perfect!) and showed me a video before hand because it was my first time there. The store was spotless! I would highly recommend their tanning facility! Happy Tanning! =)

Hot Stuff!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Recently I visted my local Beach Bum Tanning Salon... I was happy that the customer service rep took the time and effort to assist a first time tanner... This rep was very courteous and answered all of my questions... He even suggested a lotion that would help increase my color... The salon was very clean and was recommended to me by a good friend... After tanning for the first time, i'll be the one recommending Beach Bum Tanning from now on.....

open late with great deal for new customers

Just letting everyone know out there that goes tanning this was the first time i ever tanned and the expierence i got was very welcoming. The employee on duty were very helpful to me and the friend i was with. The employee help me choose the right membership for me and my friend and i got a really good deal for the first month of my membership. They have really great deals going on in there salon. My personal opinion was that the machine i used was perfect for the color i was looking for.
I highly recommend Beach Bum Tanning.

A Clean and Delightful Spot to Tan

I normally don't write reviews but I believe this tanning salon deserves one. I was pleased to see a tanning salon with conscientious and informative employees! I am very particular about the cleanliness of the tanning beds and not only were the employees accommodating but the facility itself was in excellent condition. The hours are convenient and the overall atmosphere was relaxed yet professional. I'd most definitely recommend this Beach Bum location to anyone!

""The best tanning salon on upper West Side

I've been going there for years, never would i have to wait for a tanning bed. The staff is very courteous very professional, they know what they are doing and know what they are talking about when it comes to the features of the tanning beds. The choice of music is selected so there is always good music playing. Oh i love their candy.

THE BEST TANNING BEDS AND SERVICE ANYWHERE!


I LOVE Beach bum tanning. Everyone is so friendly and helpful, they will answer any questions that you may have and don't rip you off like other tanning places do. It's nice to walk into a place and always see smiling faces. I had been to other tanning places and they were rude and the place was dirty. I am so greatful to my friend for introducing me to Beach Bum. Not only is the staff friendly and knowledgeable but, the beds are AMAZING! They have so many beds to choose from (my favorite is bed #2) and if you don't want a tanning bed they have a mystic spray which is just as nice. On Sundays if you buy a packet of lotion you get to tan for free (as long as you have are a member) which is awesome! I go at least three times a week or when ever I need to feel warmth and sun, I come out feeling like I was on a mini vacation. People are always asking me if I do nothing but travel, because I am tan most of the time, it's really natural looking. I have been going to beach bum on 72st for years and will keep going for years to come. Anna

Best Tanning Salon

I must say that this salon is very well managed and maintained. Everyone who is involved at working in this location is doing a great job. All employees have a great personality and it makes for a relaxing atmosphere. Never once did I leave there with a frown upon my face, keep up the good work,

Best salon in NY!!

Great place. I have been jogging past it on the way to the park for month now and I finally decided to go in after my run. Best place I have ever been to. When I lived in LA, I thought the salons where great over there but Beach Bum puts them to shame. They are open early and close late, they are close to Central Park, they have lots of machines and sunless too. The guy behind the counter was nice and helpful. Re

Best Service ever

The best service I've ever experienced, the facility was very clean, staff really friendly, and courteous. I love that fact that they have free tanning on Sundays. Very convinient hours of operation.

Mediocre Tanning Salon

As far as tanning salons, there is nothing wrong with Beach Bum, but there is also nothing special. If you are looking for a basic tan, you can't go wrong: Beach Bum is sanitary, you can get in and out pretty quickly, and it's fairly affordable. However, don't expect superior service. The front desk people don't offer much advice or tips. Upgrades to better beds can cost you quite a bit more money, and lotion packets (one time use) are a minimum of $7. If you go during prime times they might run out of towels. Check out their specials, though: they can be some great prices.
