Russian Banya of Dallas
Russian Banya of Dallas whisks visitors from deep in the heart of Texas straight to Old-World Europe for traditional banya and sauna sessions and Russian delicacies from Citysearch's Best Deli of 2009. Upon entering the unassuming storefront, which was recently profiled on Travel Channel's Bizarre Foods, visitors receive a robe, towels, slippers, and keys for a locker and safe-deposit box, and staff members direct them toward the facility's showers. Once cleaned—which normally takes two full renditions of "Singing in the Rain"—visitors can choose to lounge in the wet heat of the wooden Russian banya, the dry heat of the wooden Finnish sauna, or the 100% humidity of the tiled steam room.
Though the staff recommends novice sauna sitters cool down naturally after their first session, they offer an invigorating 42-degree plunge pool for more experienced visitors to hop in after steaming. The staff also doles out optional venik massages that use chilled bundles of steamed birch, oak, or eucalyptus leaves to help to open pores and pump up metabolisms.
After draining themselves of sweat, toxins, and the desire to experience life as a steamed carrot, visitors can refuel with natural fruit juices and a menu of made-from-scratch Russian, Ukrainian, Uzbek, Polish, and Armenian food at the BYOB deli. The eatery serves lunch and dinner, hosts events and parties, and stages live music every Saturday.
