    Best in Ottawa
    In reality, this place has nothing on any of the baths in Montreal, but Ottawa has certainly come a long way. Club Ottawa (sometimes referred to as Central Baths) boasts a bit of an older crowd throughout the week with younger to middle-aged guys coming in and out sporadically around lunch time and in the evenings after work. Friday nights and weekends are significantly more busy with younger guys coming in and out later in the evening. The last Thursday of each month is Blackout Night. All the lights get shut off so it's harder to see who you are rubbing up on. Blackout Thursday is the most popular night at Club Ottawa. Lockers get booked fast, and room even faster. It's safe to say it's the hottest night in Gay Ottawa. The second Thursday of each month is Bear Night, which is a community planned event. Although I haven't been able to attend a Bear Night yet, I'm sure the name says it all. There is an open concept shower next to the lockers, and a wet and dry sauna in near proximity. Both the dry and wet sauna are nice spacious with some edges to allow for some neat positions. There used to be a sling room in the back, and last I heard they were planning on setting it back up. There are also glory holes in the far back. The lounge offers drinks at standard club prices, along with non-alcoholic beverages and some food. The lounge is also equipped with a computer and TV. The venue itself is in a discrete area with free parking available around the neighborhood although, the location really isn't the best. Being a small drive or bus ride from the downtown core, it leaves a great portion of the gay crowd left out. Especially the club-going crowd. All in all, whether passing through Ottawa, or simply looking to explore the gay establishments, Club Ottawa is well worth the visit. If you get in on blackout night it will be well worth your money.
