In downtown Manhattan in the heart of Wall Street lives this adequately run Russian Spa. All underground, it has a rather large facility... Russian Sauna, Ice Cold Pool, Swedish Steam Bath, Pool, Hot Tub, weight room, billiards room, Tea room, Smoking room, Weight room. The locker room is decently maintained & there are plenty of clean towels. The price is reasonable & there's a good Russian diner in there as well. Service is not what I would call warm and friendly, by they aren't sneezing on you either. I think they used to cater to the Russian crowd and it is supposed to be popular with dancers visiting from out of town (e.g. Kirov Ballet), but it seems to be making a play for the actually bankerish Wall Street crowd, with unclear success. After going there (in a birthday gathering for a friend), I realized that it might be considered a pick up scene given some of the strutting (by both sexes)... but frankly, I don't think it's the best place for that... something too much about having people in skimpy bathing suits & pecks sitting next to older large hairy old-style rotund clientele seems just way too carnal for my tastes, but hey if you're into that, it could be a pretty interesting place.... The Spa itself, however, is a nice experience.
