If you haven’t already heard, Chicago recently became just the sixth city in the world to have its own Aire Ancient Baths, joining New York, Barcelona, Vallromanes, Almeria, and of course Sevilla, Spain, which is where the spa originally started back in 2004.
According to a release, Chicago’s Aire Ancient Baths now acts as the largest location to date, encompassing over 20,000 square feet while featuring five individual pools, two steam rooms, and a wide-range of relaxation rooms for massages and other body healing treatments.
Chicago’s Aire also happens to be located inside a restored factory that dates back to the early 1900s, providing guests with a unique atmosphere that incorporates many of the building’s original finishes like exposed brick walls, wooden beams, and oversized industrial columns that only add to the experience.
The general concept behind Aire Ancient Baths is to simulate the traditional bath houses of ancient Roman, Greek, and Ottoman civilizations, and here in Chicago, to also provide locals with a relaxing retreat from the bitter cold winters. And based on Aire Ancient Baths' Instagam account, we think they've accomplished just that.
