reopened as a Spa
After a three-year £18M refurbishment the Ironmonger Row Baths have reopened and the original Turkish baths has been turned into a Spa, it's expensive unless you become a member (£25 for 3 hours, £17:50 for members, there are concessions and if you join the gym as a premium member you can use the spa for free). There is only one men-only day (Tuesdays) which is when I have been. The place has got busier since it re-opened but it's still fairly quiet and the crowd is very mixed, older guys, a few younger guys. It's not a gay venue but my experience tells me that many of the guys who use the Spa are gay. I've seen some action in the steam rooms (there are two) and the hot rooms. The rules state that swimwear must be worn "at all time" but plenty of guys just walk around in the bathrobes which are provided and go naked in the sauna/steam/hot rooms, as many of the staff are women it's not a great idea to walk around naked. I just like going there to hang out and relax and if something should "happen" well that's a bonus
