Overview
More
We have created a state-of-the-art banya in which we offer services and a place to revitalize bodies and relax minds. It is a place to meet with old friends, make new ones, or have a quite time just for you refreshing and energizing yourself. Archimedes Banya is a remarkable blend of 'past and present', where ancient traditions of Greek laconica, Turkish hammam, German thermen, Russian banya, etc combine with science and technology to create an experience like no other. Detoxing in perfect heat rooms, plunging in an ice-cold pool, enjoying a breathtaking view on a sun-lit deck, conversing over a delicious meal - you can have it all in a quintessentially San Francisco style. And yet there is more. Famous venik platza, a rich pallet of massages, scrubs, wraps, herbal and mineral baths will help you leave behind the worries of your day and explore new sources of energy.

I love this Banya. I have never been to Russia, this place is Russian owed, I believe and there are some very clear traditions that I don't know much about(Venik, Platza). With that being said, I have been to the thermal baths in Budapest and...More

Friday’s after 7pm the Banya floor is clothing optional. If you are CFNM inclined this would be great! Plenty of guys hanging out, literally, quite a few girls too, but it’s 80% clothed. Management should make it compulsory naked like in Europe then everyone would...More

Don't let the out of the way location fool you- visiting Archimedes Banya is well worth the drive/Lyft. This clean, modern, well-decorated and maintained spa has everything from your standard steam/sauna to a swimming pool, a cold plunge pool, and an awesome rooftop deck with...More
