      Vote Ease gingerly into Aire Ancient Baths bathhouse in nyc, a subterranean cavern of marble, water and relaxation, opening mid-March in Tribeca. So imagine you’re a sultan. And when you say things like “Bring me every conceivable type of pool—one with salt, one with ice, all of ’em...”—it’s done. Now tack a couple of dedicated massage rooms and a sauna onto this fantasy and you get the idea. It’ll start out, as these things do, in a waiting room. Birdcage chandeliers, earthenware jugs, organic beverages—you know, a waiting room. After a quick trip to the locker room, you’ll hang a right down a long staircase and emerge into... let’s be conservative and call it a palatial stone grotto. You’ll have roughly 90 minutes here to go to town. And by town we mean a series of salt, ice, mineral and jacuzzi baths that surround a glass house of hot steam and stone (that’d be the sauna). Then, after all that hard work: a scented-oil massage. (You had a feeling that was coming.) If that’s not enough balneal diversity for you, you’ll soon have access to private rooms, where you can bathe in red wine, champagne or olive oil.
