Inner-city wellness escape Glow Bar to open in London this month

Described as the “ultimate wellness space for the modern woman”, Glow Bar will open its doors in London on August 28.

The space, designed in the theme of “California cool meets millennial pink”, will include infrared saunas, a café serving health-focused treats, tonics and a customisable elixir bar, as well as high-end washrooms. An on-site clean boutique will feature natural beauty products that use ingredients such as CBD, to everyday wellness items such as women’s health brand HANX, Bybi and Le Prunier.

The opening of the wellness space follows the successful launch of Glow Bar’s Elixir blends, a range of adaptogenic herbs used in Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

“The idea of opening a physical space for Glow Bar came about after realising that there weren’t many places in London that served as an escape from modern living in the city. I wanted to create an environment that promoted a 360-degree approach to health and wellness in a space that was both relaxed but fun and cool. I find traditional spas to be too stuffy, and most other wellness spaces are quite sports-focused,” says founder Sasha Sabapathy.

“Glow Bar is essentially a space you could come to with a friend to catch up while sitting in a private sauna, or over an Ashwagandha spiked lavender latte. It’s a place where you can find all the coolest natural beauty brands, so that you can amp up your shelfie game without compromising on the ingredients. And it’s a place where women can come together every few weeks to discuss issues in mental, physical and spiritual wellness.”
