James Barclay Spa is nestled in the heart of Winnipeg’s vibrant downtown area. It is located on Graham Avenue which runs parallel to Portage Avenue. In addition to being only a block away from Portage Ave., we are a half block from the Royal Winnipeg Ballet. Often, the young members of the Ballet can be seen walking in the area. James Barclay Spa is only five or six minute walking distance from all the major hotels and the Convention Centre. James Barclay Spa faces a new apartment block called” the arts residences “(formally called the Medical Arts Building.) Their surface parking lot provides a parking option for our customers.
Our spa is located in one of the few older apartment blocks still left in the downtown area. Built around nineteen-twenty, the seven-inch thick plaster walls lined with brick keeps the traffic noise down.This is what allows us to have a quiet Spa setting in spite of Graham Avenue being a Metro Transit bus mall. Since the spa is an apartment, the walls create a sense of privacy and a warm quiet atmosphere. The sunlight streams in through our southern facing windows thus creating the ideal lighting to show off our hardwood floors. The natural lighting also comes in very handy when you are helping a guest choose a makeup color.
