This intimate spa in the basement of the Empire Hotel offers a full menu of body treatments, massages, facials, and acupuncture. Opened by former architect Vivek Hans in April 2008, the spot touts a capable staff of twenty masseuses, aestheticians, and yogis. Two of the seven treatment rooms contain their own frosted-glass showers inside, and separate locker rooms for men and women are both outfitted with saunas and tranquil lounging areas. Many services here cater specifically to men, like the pore-clarifying Pure Performance facial or the Sports Pedicure, which incorporates a soak, scrub, cleaning, and hand massage. Others are devoted to expectant or new mothers, like a nourishing Pregnancy Facial that soothes skin flare-ups due to hormones. Couples or small groups looking to indulge can book the VIP suite, which features its own hydrotherapy tub, sauna, shower, and treatment area.Bridal
