MIDTOWN — Spa Castle's Manhattan location is re-opening on Tuesday, five months after it was shuttered by the Health Department for lacking necessary permits to operate.
The luxury Spa Castle Premier 57, at 115 E. 57th St., will open expansive three-floor operation at 9 a.m. on June 16 and will stay open daily from 9 a.m. to midnight, the company announced.
The spa chain, which also has an outpost in Queens, was shut down by the Health Department on January 13, less than a month after it opened, because inspectors found it didn't have "a permit or an approved safety plan," said a spokeswoman for the Health Department at the time.
The popular bathhouse franchise also made headlines in December 2014 when an 84-year-old man was found dead in one of the Jacuzzis of the Spa Castle in College Point, Queens.
Admission for the midtown outpost, which features an igloo sauna, colorful pools and rooftop hot tubs, is $65 for the day and is reserved for people who are 16 years old and over.
