Gyms, fitness centers, and spas have been hit especially hard during the pandemic but the creative minds behind BIÂN, a new members-only wellness club, have decided to move forward with their much-anticipated Grand Opening after pushing it back from their original date back in late-summer.
Housed inside the former Japanaios restaurant space at 600 W. Chicago Avenue, BIÂN merges Eastern and Western medical practices through a wide-range of social and wellness services that include cryotherapy, holistic apothecary, message therapy, and acupuncture just to name a few.
BIÂN’s grand River North facility is described as a lavish, design-forward sanctuary, which based on the photos couldn’t be more accurate. Along with being a complete medical facility, the wellness center also features am advanced fitness center and studios for yoga, pilates, and strength classes. There is also a dietitian and organic-chef driven food and beverage program and additional social spaces available to members, ultimately providing one of the most comprehensive medical and wellness experiences you can possibly imagine.
Due to the pandemic, the club’s hours are limited to Wednesday through Sunday, and group fitness classes and indoor dining are also not allowed due to pandemic restrictions. But new members are still welcome to take advantage of personal training, private medical services, and carryout food and drink options.
Membership dues at BIÂN cost $3,600 annually, plus a one-time $1,000 initiation fee.
