Aire Ancient Baths
88 Franklin St., Tribeca
Tucked away in Tribeca, this is one of New York City’s best spa secrets—which also happens to look a bit like the Temple of White and Black from Game of Thrones. You descend via a candle-lit stairway into an equally moody space with many baths and steam rooms (all sorts of different temperatures, from hot to ice-f-ing cold to a sublime extra-salt version where you float like you're in the Dead Sea), where you’ll likely be content to hang out for a while. They also offer really great massages—some of Manhattan’s best, actually.
97 Reade St., Tribeca
This popular fitness studio focuses on resistance and interval training, which means that you primarily use your own body weight throughout the workout. There's a consistent class schedule, though they also do private training. There's a second location on the Upper East Side.
92 Reade St., Tribeca
For exceptional skincare at an accessible price point, head to this facial spa (there’s a second location in Flatiron). With a membership option, flexible scheduling, and a staff of New York State-accredited and licensed estheticians on hand, Heyday manages to make it easier and, most importantly, more convenient than many luxury facial spas to stop in for a last-minute tune-up.
i-Plaza Nail Spa
387 Greenwich St., Tribeca
This subtly industrial, minimalist space is in perfect keeping with the neighborhood: There are a handful of stations scattered beneath a mini sea of white lanterns, which means you can get a great mani/pedi without feeling like you’re tripping over your neighbor. There's a second location on North Moore.
Jeffrey Shapiro, D.D.S., P.C.
111 Broadway, Financial District
His multi-disciplinary practice houses all of the various dental specialties under one roof, meaning that they take a comprehensive approach (and have an on-site dental laboratory). He and his staff of top technicians enable customized results—i.e., a better smile—with immediate turn around time.
Karen Lord Pilates
137 Duane St., Tribeca
This beautifully turned out space is lined with pristine Pilates apparatuses, making it pretty dominant in the neighborhood for both privates and reformer-based classes.
Lyons Den Power Yoga
279 Church St., Tribeca
As the self-proclaimed "only studio in Manhattan dedicated to teaching Hot Power Vinyasa Yoga in the Baptiste Yoga Method," the classes here are steamy and athletic, as you'll move through the postures with some speed. Drop-ins are $24, though they have lots of class packs that offer a discount.
27 Barclay St, Tribeca
Not your run-of-the-mill intuitive, certified herbalist Deganit Nuur uses acupuncture, essential oils, and cupping to open the meridians before every reading, which means that sessions are restorative on multiple levels. Her readings are spot-on—and you might not see it coming. Nuur’s personality is so easygoing and bubbly, it at first feels like you’re settling in for a light chat. But when she starts channeling, it’s ka-pow. These days, it's easier to book Nuur for a virtual session than in-person, but her growing practice of clairvoyants, aptly named Nuurvana, has one location in NYC and one in LA.
117 West Broadway, Tribeca
Larissa Thomson was a fashion editor in her previous life, so her take on clean beauty is one of the more gorgeous we’ve ever seen. Everything from the Vintner’s Daughter and Tammy Fender to True Botanicals and...goop skincare! is beautifully laid out and easy to shop for. The treatment rooms are stunning—we want the wallpaper, the mirrors, everything. There are cool workshops, but talking to any of the staff—including the fantastic Larissa herself—is a workshop in and of itself: They’re incredibly knowledgeable and super-friendly.
377 Greenwich St., Tribeca
It’s always an effort to sit up after a massage, but it’s nearly impossible to wrench yourself off the table after one of the transporting treatments at the onsen-modeled oasis that is The Greenwich Hotel’s Shibui Spa in Tribeca. The Japanese aesthetic—lanterns softly illuminate the heated pool in the main lounge area and embellish the treatment rooms, low-slung day beds, guests padding around in the best-looking Japanese Yukata robes—sets a tranquil, removed mood that’s instantly anxiety-dissolving. Prepare to be smoothed down in replenishing botanical oils that leave your skin a thousand times glowier than you’ve ever seen it. During the Drunken Lotus massage, essential oils are worked over every inch of your body, then tired muscles are stoked back to life as they’re enveloped in hot, sake-soaked towels. The seasonal aromatherapy bath soaks are over-the-top and can be added on to any treatment—think you (or you plus your better half, if you opt for the couples soak), in a tub, steeping in healing ginger-infused waters.
