Without spas, terrycloth bathrobes would have to make ends meet by taking part-time jobs as car-wash rags and Muppets. Help keep bathwear gainfully employed with today's Groupon to Wall Street Bath & Spa. Choose from the following options:
- For $29, you get two admissions to the spa baths (a $65 value).
- For $49, you get one admission to the spa baths (a $32.50 value) and a signature body scrub (an $80 value; a $112.50 total value).
- For $185, you get a spa day for two (a $461 total value). The spa day includes the following:
- Two admissions, which include complimentary slippers, to the spa baths (a $65 value)
- Two 60-minute Swedish massages (a $196 value)
- One hour of access to the VIP area for two (a $200 value)
Wall Street Bath & Spa melds modern sensibility and pampering practices with the traditional atmosphere of an old-school bathhouse. A duo of admissions grants pairs access to several steamy saunas, including a Russian bath and a Turkish steam room fueled by the ear-emissions of angry cartoon characters. A jacuzzi adds jets to the soaking experience, and a cold plunge pool proffers a system-invigorating shock. Bathers pad around the facilities in spa-provided personal slippers and can create terry-cloth replicas of Mount Rushmore from an unlimited supply of fresh towels.
Alternatively, opt for a solo admission to cap off your day at the baths with a signature scrub, during which pro pamperers lightly massage skins to release low-back pain, soothe stress, and exorcise the ghosts of dead to-do lists. Or upgrade to the two-person spa-day package, and talented fingertips will adroitly untangle muscle knots during a couples’ Swedish massage. Afterwards, head to the hushed VIP area to stretch out in a spacious azure jacuzzi or recline in a pillowed lounge area where pairs can play relaxing rounds of gin rummy amid flickering candlelight.
Wall Street Bath & Spa
Wall Street Bath & Spa knows its market: when patrons enter, they see a mosaic that depicts a bull and a bear wrapped in a spa towel. Though the men and women's spa is inspired by Old-World bathhouses, modern touches such as this mosaic saturate the environs. Even the sauna selection pits the traditional against the contemporary: visitors can lounge in either a russian sauna that’s encased in 16 tons of rock or an infrared sauna that heats the body without affecting the surrounding air temperature. They can also work up a sweat in the eucalyptus steam room, which hosts body scrubs, Platza treatments, and bachelorette parties for koala bears. Once sufficiently heated, guests cool off in a 52-degree cold-plunge pool or a full-sized pool, whose softly illuminated waters glint off the blue tiles that line the bottom. A VIP lounge sequesters groups of up to 20 in a private space equipped with a jacuzzi, side-by-side massage tables, a plasma TV, and a pool table.
Like napping in a cotton-candy spinner, relaxing tends to work up an appetite, so the facility also has a juice bar and an on-site restaurant brimming with European fare and a selection of infused vodkas.
