There is now a tranquil getaway designed to help New Yorkers relax, refresh, and take naps. Situated in the heart of Midtown, one of the busiest neighborhoods in New York City, Nap York is a wellness club that’s decorated with leafy plants, soft lighting, and sleek furniture, designed to provide an oasis for the sleep-deprived city goer.
In addition to the pods available for naps, Nap York also offers members access to a health-conscious café and lounge, a yoga and meditation studio, and a quiet working space designed to promote productivity. Visitors have the option to book a single occupancy pod, desk, or moon chair starting at 30-minute sessions. The club also offers various amenity upgrades for their members, including higher quality linens, shoe shining, steam service, and luggage storage.
While there may be some concern about a public napping place, each pod is inspected and cleaned after each use. Additionally, the mattresses used are entirely washable and designed to minimize dust and allergens. They’re also encased in a bed bug-blocking zippered protector and a vegan leather cover. Other basic features of the sleep pods include ceilings with twinkling stars, soundproof curtains, essential oil diffusers, reading lights, noise-canceling headphones, and more.
Nap York is uniquely built with consideration to sustainable design guidelines by LEED, WELL, Green Globe, and Energy Star standards. Through the use of sustainable modern technology, the wellness club carefully manages its water, waste, and energy levels to decrease environmental harm. Additionally, the majority of the food offered at the in-house cafe is non-GMO, organic, and typically sourced from local businesses.
Nap York is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for guests 18 years of age or older. This spring, the club also plans to open a rooftop space with a garden and hammocks available for napping. While the company is still in the early stages, Nap York is hoping to eventually open other locations around the city and possibly airports in the future.
