Make plans to YOLO hard this weekend—hit up every sample sale, go to the gym, and party like it's NYE—because come Monday, it'll be time to relax your face off for eternity. The long, long, awaited Spa Castle Premier 57 has officially announced that it will open December 15th, Gothamist reports, which, let us remind you, is on Monday. Not next Monday. This Monday.
"But I'm not a spa person! I don't care!" Spa Castle Premier 57, the three-story, better-looking sister to the Spa Castle in Queens, is not just a spa. There will be a roof deck with baller views. There will be mochi, acai bowls, and a wine bar. There will be a swim-up bar. And for serious spagoers, there will be six different kinds of saunas, Korean body scrubs, and nude pools. All of this, and—not to be forgotten, the equally exciting Meow Parlour, NYC's first cat café which also opens on Monday—will ours in mere days. It's all happening.
