Yes... I went... The building is still there, but it must have been closed 10 years if not longer... I doubt many people would go now Sainsburys is right there!

Did Manchester and Stockport have more saunas in the past that have now closed?

Heat in Hazel Grove was my 1st sauna experience, and I loved it! If I'm not mistaken, the owners were a father & son, and they shut up shop about 12 years ago, and set up in Chorlton. It ran for a number of years there, then they sold it a few years ago. It seemed to go really downhill afterwards, and eventually shut down completely two years ago. Shame, because like the Hazel Grove one, I had a lot of dirty times in there too!

"Did Manchester and Stockport have more saunas in the past that have now closed?"

Yes, there was a good one in an old pub in the Rochdale road area close to the city centre, that shut down a long time ago, does anyone remember it? about 3 years ago, one opened up in the Railway arches, close to the Salford train station in the city centre. It was really nice in there but really quiet, lack of parking spaces, I think.

That leaves only three saunas in Manchester:-

The Basement, open 24/7, on Tariff Street, near Pic station,

I've been there more than I care to remember, but it can be quite boring after a while.

Pennine Sauna in Shaw. This is a really tiny place, but been going for a very long time. They have a sauna, steam room and one dark-ish play room. It's frequented by a lot of older guys, which I don't mind in the slightest. I've been involved in a many orgy there, a lot of group fun happen. Opening times are really weird too, so it's a pain. Busiest day/time is Wednesday, from 11am till 3pm.

And there's H2o, next door to Clone Zone gay shop in the village, just close to Canal Street. I've not been for years, I always found it a little on the small side.

Sauna Sauna in Northwich is by far the best place to go these days. Shame really as Manchester is such a huge gay centre, you'd think there would be better facilities around, and not too close to the centre.

Anyone else want to put anymore input, please do so!

Years ago there was Nero's Spa in Bury, which featured in Queer as Folk. By that time I think it wasn't just gay. Shortly after, it closed down. However, I think it may have opened up under new owners, but if you Google it you get ancient or undated references coming up, so it's all a bit confusing. Any local guys know more?

Earliest gay sauna? Unit One in Rottingdean must be a contender.

I believe the Bury sauna Nero's has re-opened.

Men in the day and mixed/swingers in the evening.

Hoping to try a daytime visit soon.

I would guess that is Partners that's ex Nero.

Heat Sauna in Chorlton became Inferno.

Been to Inferno once, and maybe I picked a bad night as there was two people in there... And one of them was me lol.

The website for Inferno is going still - So I presume it must still be going?

Oh right... Fair enough... Bit of a mad place for it to be IMHO anyway...

Oh well... Always had fun in The Basement myself *shrugs*... And Nortwhich is good - but indeed, a surprising location as well...

But never been to H20...

Bit more than the lease being up. After they closed, they opened one in Salford which lasted only a few months B4 the Bailiffs moved in. They have opened another one in London but for how long I have no idea.

I heard that the one in Salford was closed down due to drugs and allowing u18s in - or was this just a product of the rumour mill !!

Heh - So - Who's been to the Basement recently?

I see reports of people saying it's gone downhill... Other people say good things.

Are they resting on their laurels being the only other sauna? Or are they too busy? Orrrrr?

Gave up on this place about 12 months ago - quite often deserted and when there were guys in half of them were posing twinks with attitude.

This place pales into insignificance compared to Northwich - okay it a bit further to go but the journey is worthwhile

Heat Sauna is located above the church and market on Churchgate. Just behind Robinson's Brewery. Been a couple of times since it opened last week. Some good offers on at the moment. Licensed and has a free car park. opens 1 pm to 10 pm daily. Very cosy and compact with no cold corridors to get lost in! Recommend a visit, especially if you live on the south side of town. If anyone wants to pop down with me, just message me.

I'm probably having a himbo moment, but where do you keep your money for the bar when you are dressed in a towel (or less)?

Never been to one of these, the price tends to put me off as I know I will end up going at a bad time

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+* I feel exactly the same way. That and the fact that I would be paying a third party to (potentially) have sex.
