Dont know where you are located but liverpool city centre has no sauna! the last one shut down and the ony other sauna in merseyside is hard to get to small and closes eary. So if you want to open one liverpool has a maket for it with a good sized gay quarter and no competition.

Yes I'm in Liverpool city centre I agree there is an opportunity here.

I was hoping to learn a bit more about the difficulties of opening and running a sauna 

Some inside information would be great  :)

Thanks guys

I would FIRST visit and look at other saunas.... !!! What facilities do they have !!! and are they WELL Maintained??, and their opening hours. 

Remember where there is WATER - much maintenance and cleaning to be done .

The golden rule it MUST be CLEAN.. always, and ALL the key elements working always !!!

Elements:-  suggest Sauna, Steam Room. Communal Showers ( where each of the jets come on at the same force at the same time !!) Jacuzzi.

Lounge area- Tea / Coffee. cold drinks  anything more WILL require some legislitive health & food standards... that will cost!!! keep it simple !!!

Guys like some form of private rest areas.

Hope this helps....... As regards Liverpool- the city one closed maybe highish rent and few clientle.... so take note !!!!and it was a huge space.

The one on the Wirral whilst small and compact and generally ok ish !!, has a few shortcomings... ( jacuzzi no jets, and showers very iffy )


Hope this helps ... i am not in business, but running one as described above will take some investment, and maintenance.

I wish you well if your dream comes on stream. Not seen a new sauna opened for a long time .
