We’re HotBox, New York’s first and only public wood-burning sauna on wheels. We serve the five boroughs hot heat as a sanctuary away from the city.
HotBox accommodates 8-10 people at a time. Kept at toasty 180 degrees, visitors are encouraged to split their session into 10-min rounds, breaking to relax and hydrate. Each session includes a towel, plenty of H₂0, access to a cool outdoor shower, and lots of hygge (that's Danish for "cozy good times").
HotBox is a safe and positive alternative self-care space for all to feel good and sweat.

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.
