REVIEW: When In Robe Spa Party w/ DJ Gina Turner


I gave myself the goal of “taking it easy” last week. After getting a bit of a cold following the rage fest that was this year’s BEMF, I decided that R&R was exactly what I needed, and what better way to support that mission than with a trip to the spa? That said, I had to get my music kicks too, so “When in Robe” seemed like the perfect way to close out a low key weekend. It seemed like it, but after spending nearly 45 minutes hunting down my friend’s flip flops (which ended up on the feet of two completely different drunk people) and getting in a hot debate about the existence of God and aliens while standing outside in a soaking wet robe, I accepted the sad fact that relaxation is fleeting anyway.

When in Robe Spa Party Sunday, Nov. 16


When in Robe is back this Sunday with another steamy, hot-tub heavy, bass dropping installment at Body by Brooklyn. This time, DJ Gina Turner is bringing the feminine energy to the spa with a set that’s fit to kill. The yogi/disc jockey/certified badass is a veteran of Holy Ship and played a back to back set in NYC recently with her husband with whom you might be familiar, Laidback Luke. Talk about a power couple!

So what are you waiting for? Buy a ticket, grab a bathing suit and relax with an evening of bubbles and bass. You’ll be greeted with champagne and a robe upon arrival. Then it’s YOU TIME! Check out the wet lounge which features hot tubs, a cold plunge pool, steam room and saunas. Next, make your way to the dance floor! Grab a snack, get a cocktail at the bar and let the music take you away. After all, YOU DESERVE THIS, right?

When: Sunday, November 16 at 10 PM
Where: Body by Brooklyn, 275 Park Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11205

These near weekly Monday evening spa parties are held in Clinton Hill’s Body by Brooklyn. Consisting of a main dance floor for DJs with a full service bar and a separate area with three saunas, a jacuzzi, and cold tub; there’s plenty to keep you busy. Tonight’s includes DJ sets from Todo Incluido (Delorean / Lemonade DJ Supergroup) and LF Wind (Teengirl Fantasy). Starting time is at 9PM, so grab a reservation!
