This Italian-themed spa keeps it simple: only the best products and services. – The Scene
Situated a few steps below street level, Erbe is quiet and intimate, with a romantic Tuscan farmhouse-vibe. The reception displays the gorgeous imported house line, which includes hair, skin and body care, plus unique scents and perfumed oils. The two average-sized treatment rooms are made pretty with frosted windows and frescoes.
Back when Soho was still for artists, Erbe was one of downtown's only spots for spa-caliber facials and massages. Though the area has grown, little has changed here. The menu is still simple (just top-notch facials, aromatherapy massage and waxing), the quality still high (only the house line of high-end, herb-based Italian skin care) and the clientele still addicted. Facials are customized and effective, producing visible results with natural ingredients like rosemary, mallow and chamomile. Combination massages soothe muscles with expert strokes and high-grade essential oils.
