Community bath houses are usually associated with the gay and Orthodox Jewish communities. But local would-be entrepreneur Martha Loughridge (who worked in Development at SPACES for seven years) has an idea to open a community bath house/day spa in Ohio City.
She says, “From living and traveling in other parts of the world, I developed a love of community bath houses/day spas/banyas/onsens/hammams and natural outdoor hot springs. I am working with a team of people to create a community bath house/day spa experience in Cleveland. We want it to have a funky, urban vibe and be a place where you can be comfortable going often, solo or with friends, to relax and rejuvenate without breaking the piggy bank.”
Although she sent out a survey asking for input in 2015, the idea is still on the back burner, so she’s posted another survey asking people what services they’d like to see. She’s asking for people to fill it out and share it. You’ll find it here.
