welcome to queer saunas

The Darlaston Greenhouse re-opened in July 2021 after a 15-month Covid shutdown. Currently, to gain entry you need to provide a 'Covid passport' or some other proof of immunity. For those familiar with the place from before the lockdown, the facilities largely remain unchanged, apart from some improvements in the basement. There is an outdoor sunlounger and (separate) smoking area, a dry sauna, two steam rooms, two dark rooms, 8 gloryhole compartments, a gay cinema, a bi cinema, a fetish room which includes a sling, a cinema and a piss play cubicle and a number of private rooms. Admission is £17, which is pretty steep, although parking is free. It open 7 days a week from 10.00 am. Wednesdays ('Dare to Bare' days) are the busiest weekdays, whilst Fridays are 'Tranny' days. Weekends are popular, especially the third Saturday of each month, which is designated 'Bears Day'. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, with a wide range of ages and nationalities and a mixture of regulars and new guys.
Good to return to this vast space, ICI’s former office building. Quite a trek with more of a middle-aged/slightly younger clientele than some saunas. Lots of private rooms but you might need to expend much energy cruising around to find someone to share one with you. Caters more to Vanilla end of market.
Very different to former Steam Complex. Not quite as vast but still big with lots of private spaces and variety of special playroom kit. Only open in afternoons as used for primary role as Swingers nightspots.
Good to revisit after Covid-related lockdowns. Small, tranquil sauna mostly frequented by older regulars. Offers small, changing selection of freshly cooked hot food so is more of a lunch club to some. Nevertheless, easy to find action in sizeable steam room and large dark room with benches and beds. Two small private rooms - one for massage. Large, comfortable lounge. Clean but dated, given it’s been open for 40 years. Not as popular as ot once was but welcoming staff and friendly atmosphere make it well worth the trip if you want somewhere to relax for a few hours. Limited afternoon opening hours, now closing at 5.
Awful. Avoid. Unprofessional stuff, website showing outdated information, bartender deliberately provided incorrect info to get £14 from me. Raised to manager who didn't care to say simple sorry. Please make yourself a favour and don't waste your time and money.
