SOAK – urban bathhouse made of shipping containers

A bathhouse made of shipping containers. SOAK is a bathhouse like no other: design-driven, ecological and built for urbanites of all stripes. Drop into one of their hot pools, connect with friends, sauna, clear your head, or just nap. At SOAK, there are no silence gongs. The courtyard is spacious and sun-filled, and on nice days our awning is pulled back making the space completely open-air. Curious where you can find SOAK in San Francisco, click the title.
