Specialties

Swedish Massage

Our New York licensed massage therapists and estheticians will pound, squeeze, unwind and de-tense muscles you didn't even know you had.

Platza Oak Leaf

Lie down while in the Russian Room and a platza specialist will scrub you with a broom made of fresh oak leaves, sopping with olive oil soap. The oak leaves contain a natural astringent, which will open your pours, remove toxins, and actually take off layers of dead skin. Some described the platza as "Jewish acupuncture".

Dead Sea Salt Scrub/ Black Mud Treatment

Slough off the dead skin with the exfoliating pleasures that is countless millenniums old. We import the special minerals located only available at the Dead Sea so you can enjoy the medicinal benefits without the plane ride. You'll feel rejuvenated, refreshed and ready to face the world.

Soap Wash

Select from the fragrant smelling soaps, such as lavender, eucalyptus or peppermint, and our professional will wash you like you haven't been bathed in months.

  • Incredible, rich, and authentic experience. My mind was alive and focused after the combo of hot and cold. The steam or sauna rooms then the cold pool....that will get you right and create a memory. People watching was on another level, but respect the traditions. The place is famous for all the right reasons. It's that good and worth the price. I wish it was closer to home:(
  • Really old...really Russian... and really hot. The brothers Boris and David that own the place are reportedly feuding - so memberships and ticket packages (Boris or David) are good only alternate weeks. It ain't fancy, and (unlike some other bathhouses) never was. Call it authentic, then, and go for the communal good vibes and hearty Slavic soups. I love the place.
