Archimedes Banya is a remarkable blend of ‘past and present’, where ancient traditions of Greek laconica, Turkish hammam, German thermen, Russian banya combine with science and technology to create an experience like no other. Detoxing in perfectly heated rooms, plunging into an ice-cold pool, enjoying a breathtaking view on a sun-lit deck, conversing over a delicious meal – you can have it all in a quintessentially San Francisco style.

Archimedes Banya - Cafe

"Bathing in the ancient world, especially in the world of the Romans, went far beyond the functional and hygienic necessities of washing. It was a personal regeneration and a deeply rooted social and cultural habit — in the full sense of the word, an institution."

— Fikret Yegül, Baths and Bathing in Classical Antiquity
