AIRE Ancient Baths, New York: Soak In Roman Style

After a long day spent pounding city pavements, the best therapy for tired trotters and shoppers’ shoulder is to check in for an aura-restoring spa sesh. But in New York, there’s spa… and then there’s AIRE Ancient Baths.

Housed in a C.19th Tribeca landmark, the Spain-based water retreat is a cavernous, candlelit space ambitiously and atmospherically preserving Ancient Greek, Ottoman, and Roman bathing rituals dating as far back as the C.5th.

Occupying 16,000 sq ft on Franklin St, AIRE boasts a bath to fit every fancy – be it a salt bath, jet bath, cold or hot bath – each built with Spanish imported stone and marble, much like the Seville and Barcelona originals. Not sure what to try? Paying tribute to Roman custom is the signature bathing ritual, a 90-minute treatment that dips you into the warm, hot, then cold pools, followed by a whizz through the steam room, propeller bath, salt water pool, and finally an oil massage as the cherry on top. You’ll be relaxed, energy restored, and soft as a baby’s bot by the end. Ready, set… indulge!
