Welcome to Mermaid Spa

Mermaid Spa, located in the Seagate neighborhood of South Brooklyn, has a reputation for being the best Russian bathhouse in New York and has been featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and New Yorker magazine. The bathhouse has three Russian steam rooms, a dry sauna, Turkish bath, two ice-water pools, a Jacuzzi, and several other relaxing amenities inside a lodge-like wooden hall. You can also book a traditional ‘platza’ service which involves a whole-body massage using a birch ‘venik.’ “We wanted to create an environment that was similar to an authentic Russian bathhouse, or ‘banya.’ Marble is cold, so we used wood and centuries old techniques for generating the highest quality steam, so you can get a true Russian ‘banya’ experience.” — Zina and Boris Kotlyar and Joseph Feldsherov, Mermaid Spa Owners

What People Are Saying

Mermaid Spa has been featured in New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and New Yorker magazine.

“There are various ways to sweat at the Mermaid Spa, including three wood-paneled Russian steam rooms, a tile-lined Turkish bath, a Russian dry sauna with large, exposed stones emitting heat, and a big hot tub.”
“You may not have imagined eating beef stroganoff or pickled herring in your bathing suit, but you came for the food, so go for it.”


Mermaid Spa located in the Sea Gate area of Brooklyn has a reputation for being the best Russian baths in New York. Besides three Russian steam rooms, this bathhouse has a scorching dry sauna, a Turkish bath, two tile pools that are machine-fed with chopped ice and a circular Jacuzzi inside a lodge-like wooden hall. The entire facility is finished with wood and slate. Owners Zina and Boris Kotlyar, Joseph Feldsherov say they wanted to create an environment that was similar to an old style banya in Russia. "Marble is so cold, wood helps you feel warmer." The great quality of steam also helps to feel warmer. Mermaid Spa also offers Russian platza with soap or venik - a leafy bundle of birch or oak twigs.
