New York City Gay Saunas and Bathhouses

New York City Gay Saunas and Bathhouses

New York's gay bathhouse scene was legendary in the past but declined when most of the venues were forced to close in the 80s. Some gay saunas in New York have however survived.

Coronavirus Update: Please note that some venues may be closed in line with local government advice. Please check the venue's own website for the latest opening hours and information before making your journey. Stay safe and follow the local authority's guidance in order to minimise the risk of transmission of the virus.

A large, well-established gay sauna in Chelsea. This is a members club so non-members will pay slightly more.

If you’re in a hedonistic mood, you can come here and cruise for some action. Or if you’re looking to unwind you can watch the TV and check out the guys.

This place is somewhat dated but it does the trick.

Coronavirus Update: East Side Club will reopen on July 1, 2021.

Gay cruising club on the East Side. This is a place you can come to relax and watch a film with other ‘like-minded men.’ Can you guess what’s on their mind?

There are private cabins and a small steam bath. Now in its fifth decade, East Side Club is a popular New York cruising site. This is a members club, so expect to pay a bit more if you don’t have a membership.
