Treat yourself to a day of indulgence in the communal baths at Kabuki Springs and Spa. Stressed out San Franciscans seek solace at Kabuki for its tranquil atmosphere and rejuvenating spa facilities, where spa-goers slip into the sauna, steam room, cold plunge pool, and hot pool to invigorate bodies and minds.
Not finished with indulgence or decadence? Walk one block over to Post for delicious and authentic Japanese cuisine at Kappa Japanese Restaurant.
The baths are women-only Sunday, Wednesday, and Friday; men-only Monday, Thursday, and Saturday; and co-ed on Tuesdays. Bathing suits are required on co-ed days, but nudity is permitted on women or men-only days.
Kabuki only validates parking for customers who purchase spa treatments, not those who only purchase passes for the communal baths. You’re better off trying to find street parking.
Between steams and dips, patrons scrub themselves with sea salt or relax on wooden recliners while sipping cucumber water and eating fresh slices of fruit. Admission is $25 for a day pass, but there are a variety of other services you can add-on if you'd like to truly indulge.
There's nothing like a good, hot soak to soothe your soul and set aside your troubles. And when that soak also includes a steam room, dry sauna, and complimentary sea salt body scrub, you've got nothing more to worry about besides staying awake in the sauna.
Sure, they have spa treatments galore, but the real reason to hit the Kabuki are their communal baths. You know that scene in Eastern Promises? You could totally imagine that at the Kabuki. You're not allowed to talk (someone bangs a gong at you if you do, no joke), and it's a nude scene, so creepers get the boot. Sunday, Wednesday, and Friday is for the ladies, Monday, Thursday, and Saturday is for the gentlemen, and Tuesday is co-ed (bathing suits required).
