SERVICES & CLASSES

The Rittenhouse Spa & Club - Hair by Paul Labrecque is an ethereal space dedicated to wellness and beauty. The spa takes inspiration from Jean Paul Gaultier’s fashion collection, as baroque-style interiors juxtapose modern black stone and glass accents; the Paul Labrecque salon uses Alexander McQueen’s wedding dress collection as its muse, incorporating white hues, floor-to-ceiling mirrors, and natural light flooding in from ceiling skylights. The full-service spa occupies 11,500 square feet, with 10 treatment rooms, including a VIP suite for up to eight guests; the latter features luxury relaxation elements like a private bathroom, rain showers, dual treatment beds, and cocktail services. The salon houses 10 styling stations.

An extensive treatment list includes the customized Rittenhouse Massage, where a sensory cascade of carefully selected aromatherapy oils blends with various techniques. Additional massage modalities, facials, and beauty services are available, as are specific packages tailored to bridal parties and corporate teams. Men can book services such as the Indulgent Shave, taken in the barber shop.
