Ask Susie: Late Night Spas
I’m trying to find a spa that is open all night, not just ‘til late evening. Any ideas?
If you live in Los Angeles or New York you are in luck. New York has the popular Juvenex Spa, which I have enjoyed (although only during the daytime). The jade igloo, Japanese style soaking tubs with additives like Sake and Ginseng, and spa treatments are available 24/7. In LA, you can choose between two spas: the Grand Spa or the Wilshire Spa. The Grand Spa’s amenities include myriad spa facilities in addition to Karaoke. Wilshire has a mineral salt room, a charcoal room, and a pure onyx room. Both spas have beauty salons and restaurants and are open around the clock.
While the concept of “24/7 spa-ing” is relatively new, I wouldn’t be surprised if it begins to spread. I remember when the 24 Hour Fitness chain started in the early 80’s. Everyone thought it was a bit crazy, yet the company has over 400 clubs nationwide today! Although these hours of operation are still a novelty for spa-goers (and usually available only in areas where people are living a round-the-clock lifestyle), it’s a great option for people who either work late night shifts or need a place to “detox” after a long night out.
