    unfortunately overall it is the same place it was in 2011. New management and owner- never there tending to club he owns in Michigan. All new staff- the familiar guys are gone. since the staff walks from nearby in the neighborhood or comes by taxi there isn't even a car in the lot. I thought for about a month they had closed as no one is ever there. Staff although it's clean =sauna still doesn't work, the boards are still missing from the sauna . Perhaps the new owner needs the tax right off!

    I have been coming to this location off and on for a number of years, and obviously it has taken a turn over the last few years. Anyone who has been around will remember that when it was good, it was great, and I've always thought why doesn't someone with good sense step in and run this like other modern baths. Last year they had a change in management, but now there has been a change in ownership, and already there is a big difference in service and cleanliness. They promise more, major updates soon... so hopefully we will soon have a modern club we can support and enjoy safely. Thank you, new owners!

    one doesn't have to visit other bath houses to know that this place is terrible. it's just inherently bad - ugly, dirty, run-down. you name it. if it's negative, it's probably applicable to this place. in reading the other review, the only difference is that i've never seen this place have more than 5 people in at a time. in any case, this place is awful - shame i have to give it even 1 star.

    a great place to play? Seriously? Obviously you have never visited larger cities where you receive full spa amenities in a much larger, cleaner, professional environment at cheaper rates. I had the misfortune of coming here with a friend in mid December. It cost us $35 EACH!! (compared to only $23 at Club Columbus, Flex and Body Zone). We walked into a time warp. Welcome to disco era baths- wood paneled walls, kitschy garage sale lamps, stained shag carpeting and the overwhelming stench of cum and cigarettes. The entranceways & emergency exits were covered with large blankets due to the Winter drafts. The stairway creaked as we made our way upstairs to the peeled back linoleum laden kitchen flooring and bare red lightbulbs. The claustrophobic upstairs is where the action or lack of happened. There was a group of mid 60's, overweight bald, married grandfathers engaging in some sort of mating rituals complete with well as predatory trolls leering in corners who tried to literally reach out and "grab" as you walked by. My friend and I nervously laughed, stating "Give this a half hour...if it doesnt improve..we leave". Needless to say we were out almost 70 bucks. The owner/mgmt consistently posts on other websites that this place is "jam packed" 24/7 and how they have made drastic improvements. Drive by on a Friday night and you will see "1" car in their parking lot. I ask that jam packed? Weekends are pathetic and weekdays..I don't even know how they stay open. This place needs to be shut down-- plain and simple.

    This is a great place to play. They have fixed things up, and the rates are cheap. It's very safe and secure for gay men. married & bisexual men. There's a variety of men at all times of the day. You can stop at lunch and have eight to fifteen guys. Sometimes you can be the only one in there. Weekends are best, but after work, from 6 to 10 pm, it gets cruisy with lots of bi men who like to 69.
