By the fall, New Yorkers will no longer have to venture to Queens to waste days at a massive spa, as Spa Castle announced plans to open a Manhattan location.
Made somewhat famous by HBO's axed-too-soon comedy Bored to Death, Spa Castle remains true to its name. The massive 38,000-square-foot structure will open at 115 East 57th St. later this year inside of a multipurpose building, bringing the combo of "traditional Asian saunas and luxurious European spas" to somewhere other than College Point and Carrollton, Texas. According to the website, the Manhattan Spa Castle will feature three floors of spa activities—and a sundeck.
Aside from canned relaxation, the place offers food, a calming atmosphere and everything else you need to attain "Complete physical, mental, and social well-being."
Some of the images Spa Castle provided resemble a Star Trek ship, while others have color schemes straight out of a Stanley Kubrick flick. Either way, try your hardest to reach nirvana when it opens..
