Recognizing your physical, mental, and emotional needs is necessary to live a better and healthier life. Restore your well-being with the Annapolis Town Center. Our plethora of tenants offer a number of services that fit everyone’s needs and budget.

Spend A Day

Set up a day by yourself or with a friend to relax and receive a much-needed treatment by a professional. About Faces Day Spa & Salon offers body massages, hair care services, and spa body treatments in their professional, zen-like environment. The scent of lavender and mint exuding from its treatment rooms are the perfect place to reduce stress, relax muscles, and increase endorphins. Or, switch up your style with Salon Unlimited. Try out that haircut or color you’ve been dying to have. Nothing is better than leaving with fresh-cut locks, ready to take on the world!

Take It Home

The easiest way to prioritize self-care is through routine and daily habits. If time is your concern then the best way to combat that is to pamper yourself at home. Grab a pre-made face mask, a calming scented bath bomb, a few lavender-scented candles, and get lost in a good book or guilty pleasure magazine from Whole Foods to unwind from a long day. Soaking in the tub can improve heart health, benefit your muscles and joints, and help you sleep better. Or, pop into About Faces Day Spa & Salon to pick up some daily essentials like face cream, night creams, and face serums to create your own care routine that will keep your skin looking its best.

Make It Simple

Take time out of your busy schedule and book an appointment to just relax, unwind, and spend a little “me” time. Paint Nailbar is the perfect place to get an affordable, but luxurious manicure or pedicure. Their non-toxic nail salon will surely improve the way you look and feel as their nail technicians pay attention to even the smallest details. Have a kink in your neck or are you looking for some relief from tight joints? The Joint Chiropractic is the perfect solution. Not only can they help with your realignment, but chiropractic care has a number of additional benefits. Like boosting your immunity, improving your digestion, and increasing your energy. Meditation is another key self-care act. Join Ruah Yoga for their meditation workshops, hot and cool yoga, or specialty yoga classes.

Happy Hour

From 2:00-5:00 pm (Mon. – Fri.), Cooper’s Hawk serves up some amazing Happy Hour specials that are too good to not try at least once. Of course, they have their wine, specialty drinks, and cocktails, but their appetizers and flatbreads are just as worthy of praise. 

The winter months mean more time spent at home. Cuddling under cozy blankets. The delicious aroma of crockpot meals filling the house. Endless movie nights (or days) on the couch with the ones you love. It is easy to embrace the slow down of life that the colder seasons bring about. Make sure your home is stocked and ready to provide you with all of the comforts you look forward to at the start of a new year.

Be sure to pair that delicious dish with a fine wine or your favorite beverage from Bin201. Or, if you are feeling rather lazy one cold evening, the restaurants on the property have you covered with curbside pick-up. And, based on your location – maybe even delivery!

Home Accents Matter

There is nothing that soothes the soul more than scented candles and plush blankets. Grab a faux fur blanket or chunky knit throw from Arhaus and drape it over a deep sofa or perfectly manicured bed boasting all of the essential throw pillows. It will just scream cuddle time to any passerby. Bring the outside in with some textured pieces from Z Gallerie. Evergreen plants, birchwood, potpourri, and snowflake imagery can serve as the perfect complement to those snowy days outdoors. Looking to truly commit to the cozy theme? Check out Restoration Hardware for inspiration in their Ski House sourcebook. Find unique home pieces like sheepskin sofas, reclaimed rustic oak tables, and wool herringbone drapes.

Game Night

Board games will never get old. Perfect for families of all sizes, a game night during these locked in, chilly months encourages family bonding and a little competitive fun. Bed Bath and Beyond, as well as Target, boast plenty of options to choose from. Start with a crowd favorite like Monopoly, Go Fish or UNO. For those feeling a little nostalgic, you can even find Battleship and Sorry. Or, challenge these young Tik Tok kids to a game more their speed like Wii Just Dance. 

Stay Toasty Outdoors

Warmth and comfort don’t have to only be found inside your home. There are tons of ways to stay warm as you are surrounded by the winter-friendly conditions outside. Add one of the most desirable amenities to your home – a hot tub – with the help of Offenbachers Home Escapes. Their wide assortment of spas boasts a number of standard and deluxe features.

Nothing says the holidays quite like a sugar overload. At this time of year, we all love to indulge with some of our favorite recipes. Whether it’s cookies for Santa or the perfect dessert dish for family dinner, you can’t skip the sweets! This holiday season, let the Annapolis Town Center help you find the right treats to impress the whole family – like these adorable Christmas Tree Brownies!


1 1/2 cups unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted

2 1/4 cups sugar

2/3 cup flour

1 cup unsalted butter, melted

4 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 cup  Cream Cheese Frosting

Green food coloring

Red sprinkles

White sparkling sugar sprinkles



Step 1

  • Preheat oven to 325°F. Lightly grease a 9- x- 13-inch metal baking dish with cooking spray. Line with two pieces of parchment paper fitting the length and width of the pan with two inches of overhang on each side (allowing for the easy lifting out of the brownies when they are finished baking).

Step 2

  • In a large bowl, whisk together cocoa, sugar, and flour. In a separate bowl, whisk together butter, eggs, vanilla, and salt until smooth. Add liquid ingredients to dry ingredients and stir with a spatula until no pockets of dry ingredients remain. Pour batter into prepared baking dish and use a spatula to spread batter evenly into pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean and the center is slightly firm to the touch, about 30 minutes. Allow cooling completely in pan, 1 hour.

Step 3

  • Use the overhanging parchment paper to lift brownies out of pan and onto a cutting board. Cut into three long rows, 3 inches in height. Then cut each row into 6 equilateral triangles, wiping the knife clean with a wet paper towel in between cuts to make them cleaner.

Step 4

  • In a small bowl, stir together 1/2 cup frosting with green food coloring to reach the desired color. Transfer to a piping bag. Transfer another 1/2 cup white frosting to another piping bag. Snip the ends of both piping bags and pipe swooping strands of green and white frosting across the brownies. Decorate with red sprinkles.

Baking of any kind requires precision. Bed Bath and Beyond will help you make sure your brownies are a true hit. Stop in to grab your measuring cups, cooling racks, baking pans, cookie cutters, and more! You can easily find all of the tools you’ll need for this recipe and any others you have saved this holiday season. Plus, who can pass up some seasonal cookie trays?!

Plus, load up on all of your necessary ingredients to bake all of your favorites over the next few weeks. Whole Foods Market has a great selection of high-quality necessities to meet a range of dietary needs. Stock up on flour, sugar, and other baking must-haves as you complete your holiday shopping at the Town Center.
