It's a bit of a throwback in time...very interesting. Not soft lights and ambient music but fun. A bath with an agitator, a sitting bath with hot water and a personal steam cubicle.

My wife and I both enjoyed the full experience in this historical facility. The staff were uniformly friendly, courteous and helpful, explaining every step.

So interesting doing the spa services. Felt like I entered a time machine and went back to the 20’s. Everything was just like the museum a few doors down. Very glad I did this!

When you go do the package deal it was the best. Bath. Hot towels, stiz bath, steam box, massage and hand waxed.

Buckstaff actually has private tubs (men/women separate). I heard Quapaw has mixed pools but I haven’t been there.
