Bliss is known for its whimsically named treatments (no "zit" sherlock facial; rookie mom rubdown), blues music, and overarching youthful atmosphere. You can get anything and everything from Brazilian bikini waxes to oxygen facials and deep sea detoxes. SoHo is the spa’s flagship location, which features lovely locker rooms, lounges complete with snacks (brownie buffet, anyone?), and Vichy showers. The spa provides a modern approach to grooming, with an emphasis on customization and comfort.

WHY WE LIKE IT
They cater to your comfort level and provide great activities for those prone to boredom (such as movie screenings during manicures). Plus, who could go wrong with complimentary brownies?
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
It’s a popular spot, and with lots of people in and out, it can just be a bit on the busy side for our liking. The spa is bright and upbeat, so if zen-like is your preferred spa style, Bliss is not for you.
GOOD TO KNOW
Bliss is praised for giving the most painless waxes in the industry, using a revolutionary product they call “wonder wax” and tailoring the product according to your skin’s sensitivity. We can attest to its miracle-like powers firsthand. Beware that they may try to sell you on various add-ons during a facial, so be sure to confirm the price for any additional treatments that they suggest before approving them. Also, Bliss carries a wide selection of lotions and healing products designed to help you keep up-to-date with your grooming away from the spa. Products are available online and include travel sizes and promotional lines.
