The softly lit environment of New York's Townhouse Spa


Townhouse Spa
39 West 56th St.
212-245-8006

Designed with busy local execs in mind, the customized services and homey ambience of this luxe, tri-level day spa attract a regular crowd for a lunch facial or an extensive package in the Phoenix Suite, which is also great for pampering business meetings. The ground floor features a coed restaurant with a bar decorated with a faux onyx front and the nail salon. Onyx returns as a decorative motif in a sprinkling of glass and sculpture accessories. The women’s spa, on the lower level, features treatment rooms including the VIP suite. The upper floor boys' club vibe appeals to men and has a lounge with a leather banquette, a television (especially popular for sports viewing) and a barber station. Among our favorites are the Ultra Luxe Facial, and for the guys, the Executive Treatment. The menu is extensive, from massages and bronzing to bootie lifts and eyelash extensions.
