ABOUT US

The Bath House is not just a place to revitalize your body. It’s also somewhere to reconnect with friends, colleagues, and loved ones. Fittingly, our story began in friendship.

Co-founder Alex grew up in Kherson, the great Ukrainian port, spending much of his childhood touring the USSR with a troupe of folk dancers. Summers with his grandmother, selling wildflowers to help pay for treats, whetted his taste for commerce. In 2008, armed with an MBA, he settled in London, working in marketing by day, running clubs by night. Nostalgia among expats – for community, conversation, and a hangover cure – led him into the banya business.

That’s how he met co-founder Rob, a Yorkshireman who first fell in love with banya on a family trip to the Baltic Sea. The two shared a vision: to bring the ultimate Bath House to London.

An extended tour followed of Europe’s finest public and private bathhouses, from Sochi to St Petersburg, Riga to Kyiv, to distil the essence of banya. When they found a Grade 2-listed ex-bank across the road from Buckingham Palace, they were ready to make their dream a reality, undertaking extensive renovations before opening in Christmas 2019.

We haven’t simply elevated a great European ritual. We’re also proud to revive a bathing tradition that was once central to British life.

'Must Visit' experience Absolutely amazing experience. Special treatment for your sole and body in the heart of London (next to Hyde Park, Victoria Station, home area for Embassies and iconic hotels). You are free to decide / to move around the premises: from banya to a cosy and relaxing bar lounge, and back to banya. A very friendly staff will let you know when it is time for your pre-booked additional treatment. They also have great facilities for private / group bookings. You should not be misled by the pricey city area: adequate prices and quality service for an unforgettable experience. Loved every minute of it!

Recentemente visitei esta banya e fiquei impressionado! Fizeram uma massagem com ramos de eucalipto. Adorei! As instalações são limpas e proporcionam uma experiência relaxante. A equipa profissional e acolhedora. A comida também é muito boa! Recomendo vivamente esta banya para quem procura relaxar e revitalizar depois de um dia de excursões em Londres.

Always a luxurious treat. Really nicely laid out. A great size sauna and I love those bucket showers! So nice lounge about in a toga in the cafe for a stack of blinis or a slab of honey cake to regulate the blood sugar between rounds too ;) A very special place.

ロンドンにある素晴らしいロシア式バーニャ。「え?ここにサウナあるの?」と思うぐらいおしゃれなサウナ施設です。元々は銀行だった建物を活用しているとか。 曜日によって男女共通の日と男性オンリー、女性オンリーの日に分かれていて、男女共通の日は水着の着用が必須です。バスタオルとサンダルは受付で無料でレンタルできます。 肝心のサウナはロシア式のバーニャ。特に綺麗な彫刻が施されたサウナストーブは必見です。なお、受付で渡されたシーツをベンチに敷いて、その上に座ります。温度・湿度ともに素晴らしく、しっかりと汗をかけました。サウナ室も広く混雑していないので落ち着いてゆっくりと入ることができます。 体が十分に温まったら水シャワーを浴びて水風呂へ。水風呂はチラーが効いていて、キンキンに冷えています。 そして、水風呂から出た後は体を拭いてレストランへ行きましょう。レストランとサウナ室は直結していて着替える必要はありません。レストランでは水分補給はもちろん、しっかりとした料理も楽しめます。 余裕がある人は、パレニエやマッサージを強くお勧めします。どちらも最高にリラックスできること間違いなしです!

Amazing time at the Bath House! Perfect for relaxing and de-stressing. The staff was super friendly and knowledgeable, the food was excellent! Recommend the borscht and soleniye (pickled platter). The sauna was very spacious and great set of services, especially loved the pareniya. Will be coming back :)
