The initial communication and customer service over the phone was terrible and I almost did not go because of it. I am vary glad I did. It was vary relaxing and people were vary friendly and I preferred this Spa over King Spa even though it is significantly smaller. It was vary clean and relaxing. Perfect for a cold snowy day.

It’s not a luxury spa, but it’s clean and relaxing. Enjoyed our visit very much! We were the only 2 women but we stayed in the women’s banas and then enjoyed dinner. I think the meat foods are probably more yummy than veg but they have plenty of options.

A wonderful, authentic experience. Four stations: Sauna, steam bath, hot tub and cold plunge pool.. The bathhouse also has a nice bar/restaurant as well as a series of massage services. The bath house has separate facilities for men and won and there are co-ed opportunities as well. The place is great!

Maybe it was an off day, but the place seems to have gone downhill the past few years. When I'd previous gone there someone gave you a robe, towels, flip-flops before entering the locker room.. now you have to look around and find them yourself... the hot tub jets don't work... and half the TV's were off or not working right.. also, they no longer provide the most basic toiletries, e.g. a comb at the sink area... For $25 it was still OK, but not nearly as good as it used to be

About Red Square

For decades after it opened in 1906, the two-story Russian bathhouse on West Division Street shrouded famous locals such as Al Capone, Saul Bellow, and Nelson Algren in clouds of steam. More than 100 years later, the building underwent a full renovation. In a return chronicled by the Chicago Reader, WGN, and Time Out Chicago, the century-old retreat of the city's powerful was reborn as Red Square.

Today, as perhaps the only traditional Russian bathhouse left in Chicago, Red Square holds its heritage close with two floors of authentic wet and dry saunas (separated into male and female spaces) and a spa. In the traditional banya, cedar-plank walls and three-tiered benches surround brick and granite ovens, where clouds of steam erupt from superheated rocks. But visitors aren't just left to cook; cold-water taps beside each bench and cold-plunge pools that mimic Russian ponds reinvigorate bathers amidst the heat. Spa attendants wander the humid rooms, performing services such as the traditional platza—a rigorous massage and scrub with a bundle of oak, eucalyptus, or birch branches that mimic the relaxing sensation of falling asleep in a tree.

It might come as a surprise to find a spirit-stocked bar in Red Square's restaurant area. After all, "Many people will tell you it’s a terrible idea to mix alcohol and dehydrating heat chambers," says Time Out's Julia Kramer, "but none of those people are Russian." And so premium vodkas and Moscow Mules flow freely as guests, many of them still in their bathrobes, savor traditional Russian herring and caviar in the mahogany-paneled space, designed to resemble a 19th-century train car. To complete the locomotive vibe, curtained televisions at each booth screen looping footage of the Eastern European countryside and a conductor checks luggage for stowaways every half-hour.
