Champagne bath

A TriBeCa bathhouse/spa is now offering baths in Champagne or red wine for wealthy folks who like to play with their food and drink.


TRIBECA — Now the champagne set can literally swim in bubbly.

A luxurious new bathhouse has popped up in TriBeCa — with elite amenities that include a $450 per person VIP package with a dip in a champagne-filled bathtub.

Aire Ancient Baths, which has built a devoted following in Spain, unveiled its first American location this week: a 16,000-square-foot spa inside a restored 19th-century building at 88 Franklin St., with six pools, a steam room and massage suites.

Spa packages start at $75 for a 75-minute bath, while a VIP suite is expected to open in the next few weeks, offering clients a chance to purchase a 3 1/2 hour spa package including a bath in a tub infused with olive oil, red wine or champagne at a cost of $450 per person.


Beyond the waste, bathing in Champagne sounds sticky.

The idea of bathing in bubbly doesn’t appeal to me. I’d much rather drink it. Am I in the minority?
