currently @ Rockaway Brewing Co. in Rockaway Beach

we’re open this weekend
oct 19th - 20th


We’re HotBox, NYC’s first and only wood-burning sauna on wheels. We offer a hot sanctuary away from the city through monthly community shvitz parties and private rentals.

HotBox holds 8-10 people. Kept at a toasty 180 degrees, visitors are encouraged to split their sauna time into 10-min sessions with breaks to hydrate and cool off in our outdoor shower. Bench towels, plenty of H₂0 and hygge provided (that's Danish for "cozy good times”). 

HotBox is a safe and positive alternative self-care space for all to feel good and sweat.



Where are y'all?
We’re heating things up at Rockaway Brewing Co. in Rockaway Beach (just a few blocks from the beach)!


Do you throw sauna parties?
That’s what we’re all about! We host various monthly shindigs which you can find more about here. We’re always looking to collab too, so if you have an idea for an event, send us love.


What about private rentals?
Yeah, we do that too. Check out our rental packages and offerings. Get in touch with the details and we’ll make it happen.


How hot does the sauna get?
It’s a sauna. It gets hot. The temperature is typically kept at 170-180 degrees.


How long can I stay in the sauna?
We recommend doing a few 5-15 minute rounds, making sure to step outside to cool down and hydrate. 


What should I bring?
We recommend bringing a swimsuit, towel, water bottle, and sandals. 


What if I forgot?
No sweat. We have plush robes available for rent.


Can I change into stuff there?
Definitely. We have changing rooms on site.


We believe that quality of life is elevated when you make time for human connection and take pause for self-preservation. At its core, HotBox exists because we want to offer the benefits of sauna to our community as an alternative space for social and mental well-being.

For friends who want to make sweating more a part of their routine, check out our membership offerings.
