What is Akari?

Akari means light in Japanese, and we are a membership-based neighborhood sauna studio that provides accessible and rejuvenating experience for people of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and beyond.

Can I walk-in?

Members can come by any time during business hours. No walk-ins allowed for non-members.

Can I do a trial before committing?

We don't offer trials at this time in an effort to ensure the space never exceeds capacity for our members.

What should I bring?

Bathing suits.
Clean towels are provided. If you prefer to bring your own pair of slippers, by all means!

Is there an age limit?

Must be 18 years or older.

Are all facilities gender-neutral?

Yes. Facilities are not separated by gender.

Can I book the entire sauna for a private session?

Both saunas are fully communal and are currently not available for private-party bookings.

Scheduled maintenance & deep cleaning

While we clean throughout the day and deep clean every night, we will be closed on the 1st Friday of every month for maintenance. We appreciate the understanding in our effort to keep the space up to the highest standards as possible!

What is your cancellation policy?

You can cancel your membership at any time - all we ask is email us at at least 72 hours before your monthly bill date.

Members can also pause their membership once every 12 months, and the period must be a minimum of 14 days and a maximum of 60 days.

If you decide to cancel your membership, please keep in mind that you won't be able to retrieve the original price you signed up for, and there's no guarantee you can reclaim your membership spot in the future as our prices and availability may change over time.
