  1. 1st experience at a gay sauna

    “Went for my first experience at a gay sauna, I was a little nervous because there were some bad reviews. The security guy and staff were all so friendly. I said I’d never been before and they explained everything. The place was really nice inside, would definitely recommend pleasuredrome.”

  2. Nice place but...

    “I went there twice in a week. This was one of the first ever saunas i had been to and hence was keen on checking it out on my return to London. The place is clean and has competent staff. Just that the crowd is really sad. Lots of older guys and barely many who want to play. Had to help myself while watching the porn on the extremely pixellated large screen. Sad to see this place lose its edge.”

  3. Better options nearby

    “I’ve gone to this club when visiting London for age least the last 15 years. Last night I was refused entry for not saying,”Hello” to the “security” but at the entrance. A short walk away was Chariots where the staff greeted me with a “Hello love”. Had a great time with a hot guy at Chariots and the staff were friendly and efficient. Pleasuredrome is off my list.”

  4. Bag check

    “I asked for my bag to be kept upright during a routine bag check on entry to stop valuable items falling out, [the security guard] insisted, for some unknown reason, that my bag would be checked on its side, an item, albeit of low value slipped out onto the floor and and my phone was about to fall out too, when I pointed out items were falling from my bag he said leave me to do my job, when I reached to upright my bag and insisted further item must not fall on the floor, he said ‘right leave now and I can always bar you’. Get past the bully on the door and you may have a good time alternatively go to another venue. I rang the management, if they had apologised I would not have written this, they just said the item that fell on the floor was not valuable so they didn’t think I had a valid point! No items should have fallen on the floor regardless of its value! Personally I think [the security guard] does not have the right temperament to be working in that position… I wouldn’t feel safe going there again.”

  5. Lucozade...

    “I attempted to go to Pleasuredrome this evening (4/6/16). Unfortunately I was met in reception by a … man on the door..under the delusional belief that he was in some way a bouncer. My absolute crime was to be in possession of a contraband bottle of Lucozade. I was instructed I was not allowed this as it broke rules so I went outside to drink this devils nectar while within earshot of the madam who was in “ever such a huff” that i dared do such a thing. When I came back was instucted that as I went outside and finished the drink I must be high as a kite on drugs and therefore will not be allowed into the hallowed establishment. I do not do drugs so this was a surprise to me and I “stated its a bottle of lucozade” and “its silly”…. well the door man nearly fell off her stilletoes and roughly remonstrated that she would be forced to call the police if I abused her….. Well after that statement I did leave albeit with some choice words. I spent my money in Chariots sauna around the corner where I will always go to from now on.”

    • Why drinks are not allowed.

      “Whilst we cannot comment on the way you were treated, it is worth noting that management at gay saunas in London are taking steps to deal with the problem of a few customers trying to smuggle in drugs, particularly at the weekends after “after-hours” clubs have closed.

      Taking any type of drug in a sauna is incredibly dangerous, but GHB is one of the most dangerous. This clear liquid can be concealed in water bottles (and Lucozade). GHB can really knock you out, cause unconsciousness, coma and death. Its linked to sexual assault, where someone has their drink spiked.

      We are not suggesting that you would be involved in such activity, but highlighting the reasons why you were allowed to bring your Lucozade.”

  6. The most decent from so many flops..

    “Went there occasionally in the past few years. Mostly with great experiences. Need to update their facilities such us opening more free cabins and providing better service (no more arrogant & intrusive staff).”
