Brooklyn Banya’s 10,000-square-foot traditional Russian-Turkish bathhouse lavishes relaxation on clients with a bounty of soothing saunas, pools, and jacuzzis. Sips of champagne set a bubbly mood inside a candlelit, flower-filled massage room as soft music floats delicately with the cartoon hearts emerging from each client’s head. Robe-clad couples relax side-by-side as adroit therapists untangle knots and soothe harried minds with gentle kneads and long, gliding strokes.
Day-pass holders melt tension and stress within the balmy confines of Brooklyn Banya’s three saunas, achieving a constant calm and level of pruniness besting previous personal records. The steam room sends hydrating vapors deep into lungs while urging pores to expel impurities, and the combination of an icy pool and warm jacuzzi keeps temperature senses on their toes. The spa is open until midnight daily, allowing couples to cast off the day’s stresses after work or during sleepwalking sessions.
A modern take on a centuries-old Russian tradition of relaxation for all walks of life, the female-owned Brooklyn Banya welcomes visitors of all ages, ethnicities, and genders into the comforting ambiance of their 10,000-square-foot facility. The banya—Latin for "bathhouse"—features dry and wet saunas, steam rooms, and pools soothe aching bodies and open pores. Patrons stow valuables in lockers, for which they may bring their own locks, and don flip-flops before moving between baths of different temperatures, which can increase circulation and help the immune system. The bathhouse’s therapeutic jacuzzi bubbles with cozy heat, and ice baths chill sore muscles. Staff members perform body-bettering treatments, such as sugar scrubs, which leave skin smoother than a newborn pickpocket, and Platska, a treatment that uses leafy oak branches to exfoliate skin and enhance circulation. The attached rooftop sundeck and café—serving fresh juice, black tea with honey, and authentic Russian fare—ensures that patrons leave calm, sated, and rejuvenated.
