One of Chicago's most venerable and friendly spas. – The Space
Occupying the same garden-level, corner space since the late-1970s, this Hyde Park spa has the charm of grandma's house--welcoming though dated--and an approach more familiar than formal, likely from serving a long-time, mostly neighborhood clientele. A labyrinthine hall accesses the many treatment rooms and the garden room, a communal waiting area with natural touches like plants, pet birds and an aquarium. A robe, slippers and locker are provided.
Despite the spa's age and antiquated interior, its offerings range from classic to of-the-moment treatments, including a dozen hydrotherapies and a four-hands massage; service is well-meaning, but inconsistent. Pedicures, administered at throne-like stations with sunken foot baths and client-controlled massage chairs, have mixed results. Bettye's body butter massage--incorporating a warm, citrus-infused oil--would be more relaxing without a squeaky ceiling fan overhead or a room-rattling air-conditioning compressor on the shared wall. You'll spend the same at fancier places.
Wonderful, cost-effective spa! – The spa has a friendly atmosphere and the services are fabulous. The aestheticians care about the individual customer: my skin gets red with a wax, and they showed concern and modified my treatment to relieve some of the discoloration. The brazilian was as painless as it could be, and Laura, the waxer, is lightning fast and very detail-oriented.
User review by mizzk2u – I got a massage and facial at this spa on different occasions recently. I is a wonderful quaint spa. It has a great atmosphere and they don't try to be more than they are, they keep it real and simple. Which is why I highly recommend them. The staff is extremely professional and very skilled at what they do. My massage was so relaxing. The facial was absolutely amazing, you just have to get a facial, it is a must have. I didn't realize how soothing a facial could be. I will be going back.
