Ape + Canary?

Occasionally people ask the origin of our name, and we answer with a little story…

Once upon a time, deep in the jungle, there lived an ape. This ape lived in a little ape village and had lots of ape friends. One day he realized they all looked the same, and he wanted to be different. As he went over to a rock to sit and ponder this, out of the sky a beautiful canary flew down, landed on his palm and sang him a beautiful song. Instantly, they became the best of friends and absolutely inseparable. From that day forth, that ape was known for his distinctive style with the canary perched on his shoulder. They were simply, stylishly, Ape + Canary.

After we tell this story, people ask us the origin of our name again. The second time we smile and shrug.

Urban Salon and Spa.

Ape + Canary is Rochester, New York’s Premier Urban Salon and Spa. We offer luxurious spa treatments in a calming, upscale, trendy environment. Directly across from the Strathallan Hotel, we provide luxury salon and spa services to members, and style-seekers from all over.

A Little History.

In August of 2015, Ape + Canary was born. We were a mere 700 square foot salon in the heart of the city. We gave our clients what they had been craving: an exclusive salon experience with incredible stylists and quality products. The opportunity to partner with the Strathallan Hotel and move into their gorgeous salon across the street from the hotel propelled us into the spotlight. In March 2018, we added to our space and our service menu to expand not only great hair, nails, massages, esthetics, and much more for our customers.
