Since 1892, East Village locals and celebrities alike have been flocking to this OG Russian & Turkish bathhouse on East 10th known for its saunas and steam rooms, and traditional services like platza treatment and various scrubs. You could spend a day tuning out the world in the Aromatherapy Room and Redwood Sauna, but be sure to book a service for the full experience. This underground spa features 5 steam rooms and saunas, a restaurant and juice bar, a roof deck, and a variety of affordable massage services. Here, $40 will get you a day in the rejuvenating banyas, and a chance to run into one of the establishment's many celebrity patrons. From Mick Jagger to J. Lo, troves of A-listers have made this hole-in-the-wall health club their own.
