Bathhouses & Sex Clubs
THE Place For GH Lovers
This place rocks. This is THE place for glory hole lovers. This is the only GH in the DC/Baltimore area where you don’t need to put coins in a machine every few minutes. One flat fee and you can stay for hours. In May 2011, 48 booths were installed and this place is now hopping. Prior to that, there were no booths and the place wasn’t busy.
This is a huge facility – it’s in an old warehouse. It is sort of a GH and bath house combined. Overall, the interior and furnishings are a bit tattered, but who cares. One area has 48 new, well-built booths. Each booth has three holes. It is clean by GH standards. There are drains in the floor – I think they just hose the booths down every so often. There is a shower and steam room area. I haven’t seen many guys in this area – probably because it smelled like mildew. But, this area is being renovated now and there’s no funny smell. So it is getting better. There are no private rooms, but there are four small rooms with locking doors.
There is an outdoor patio which is fairly nice. There is a nice roof deck. I saw lots of action on the roof during the summer. There are several lounge areas with comfortable couches inside. They play pretty good dance/club music from satellite radio. The lounge near the front door has a dining table and TV. I’ve seen people eating a sandwich and catching up on the news. There is a video room with a new flat screen playing porn all the time. There are many dark nooks and crannies where guys play and other guys watch them.
I’ve been there about ten times. The busiest times are: Friday night, Saturday afternoon, Saturday night, and Sunday afternoon. On Friday and Saturday nights, it doesn’t get real busy until midnight. But, a lot of guys would like to see it busy at 9pm. So let’s start arriving earlier and create a crowd. Demographics during the busy times: about 50% Black, about 30% White, about 10% Asian, about 10% Latin. Other reviewers have said the crowd is too Black at times and the Black guys won’t play with anyone else. I don’t think this is true – at least during the busy times. Let’s get our Asian, White, and Latin friends to go there more often and round out the crowd.
There is free, safe parking in a private lot. The closest metro station is NY Avenue (red line). But, the station is 1.7 miles away. This isn’t the best part of town and I would not feel safe walking. I’m not sure about bus service. I’ve always felt safe by driving there and parking in their lot.
