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 into a candle-lit stairs 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.
377 Greenwich St., Tribeca
Hotel spas can be hit and miss, but this beautifully turned out Japanese-style spa downstairs at The Greenwich Hotel is definitely in the "hit" category. We've had amazing traditional massages here; the fact that they use natural and organic products for the most part is a huge bonus.
112 Reade St., Tribeca
This is not your regular neighborhood mani/pedi joint. Set up above the bustle of Tribeca, the low-key space is outfitted with mid-century modern antiques (you won't find any oversized massage chairs) and the technicians are incredibly well-trained. They do kiddie manicures, at-home appointments, and best of all, it's open late. There's a new location in Soho, and a third outpost at The Parker Meridien Hotel in Midtown.
291 Broadway, 4th Floor, Tribeca
This is one of those fitness situations that evades basic definition: Started by Taryn Toomey, it's a self-titled cathartic experience, where you spend 75 minutes engaging in intense movement to “break open and activate ‘stagnant’ layers in the body.” In short you move, and scream, and shake, and yell as you release emotional energy–and get a pretty incredible workout in the process. It requires an open mind and a willing spirit. Photo Credit: Jaimie Baird
