Venue Info

One of the oldest and arguably best Russian baths in New York, Mermaid Spa is a slice right out of New York history. Besides three Russian steam rooms, this bathhouse also has a dry sauna, Turkish bath, two tile pools, a Jacuzzi, and a menu of treatments -- including a traditional Russian massage where they beat you with birch or oak twigs (but in a relaxing way). Get the Venik Massage: This traditional Russian massage takes place inside a steam room with venik, that oh-so-relaxing leafy bundle.
