Permanently CLOSED.

Local gay sauna near Avenida da Liberdade with dry sauna, steam room, cabins and cruising area. The place is rather dated but gets a bit busy in the late afternoon and is popular with friendly mature guys and bears.

The sauna is rather difficult to find. Luckily, a very helpful user has provided us with detailed instructions:

Rua Telhal, nº4B. nº4 has four doorways – A, B, C and D. It’s in an old part of Lisbon and things are not clearly identified in these streets. Three of four doorways look alike (A, B and D) and it’s hard to tell them apart as they are not clearly marked. B has a tiny “B” next to 4, A has nothing, D has apartments for sale and rent and C is an old music record shop.

Sauna Virato is at 4ºB and has 2 potted shrubs on each side of the door, a doorbell on the right hand side and a small paper with the sauna name on the inside of the door, but the glass is not perfectly transparent, making it hard to read. See our gallery for a pic of the door (the two doors either side are fake).

The way Rua Telhal crosses Rua das Pretas often causes GPS apps not list the street at all, and only list Rua das Pretas. Metro: Avenida

    “I can confirm it is closed, I went there yesterday. The whole building is being turned into apartments for sale.
    Only one sauna left in Lisbon now, Trombeta, and that one has few mature men, it's mostly under 30 yo. If you really want Portuguese mature men near Lisbon, the only options now are the cruising woods in Queluz, the lower part of the parking of the national stadium or beach 19 in Caparica (in the summer).“

  2. Sauna para os 40

    “A maior parte dos meus homens encontro-os ali. É verdade que a Sauna precisa de obras e uma remodelação seria de encarar mas é uma muito boa opção às "super" saunas restantes. Como coloquei no titulo é para os 40 em diante....e que homens lá aparecem!“

      “I was there yesterday and it's working as normal (neither better nor worse than how I reviewed it last year). I go there every month!
      None of the workers mentioned anything about it closing down and there is no "for sale" sign anywhere.“

        “It is definitely closed and has been for 3 months now!!
        There is a council notice outside indicating unsettled finances or to that effect
        Best to give it a miss.“

    • Was it Oasis?

      “I know that Oasis on the other side of Ave. De Libertade on Rua do Salitre 85, was closed and the building had a For Sale sign on the door when I visited. Viriato was fun in the afternoon.“

    • Definitely Open

      “We've had several confirmations that this sauna, whilst difficult to find, is very much open. Special thanks to Rodrigo for additional info on how to find the sauna and confirmation that it is open, plus Wendell & Carlos for their comments.“

  5. Good sauna for mature lovers

    “This sauna had a small makeover and it's a bit better now. A bit more space and a bit cleaner.
    The audience is still mature men, many with lovely hairy bodies.
    In week days it's busier from 5pm to 8pm, in weekends it's busier after 5pm.
    The swimming pool is still a waste of space, since nobody dares to go inside it. The water looks ok (there were about 5 chlorine tablets inside it), but the swimming pool "walls" looked dirty (the low light doesn't help too).
    Some of the matresses inside the cabins had big tears in the fabric, but were usable.
    12€ entrance price, and you get a pair of sleepers and 2 towels. There are 2 condoms inside each locker, but no lubricant. The towels could be bigger.“

  6. Not that bad!

    “Ok. The place Is outdated and not hip. But I enjoy my visits because the real Portuguese men come here. If you like perfumed fitness guys that shave their body hair, go to the small Trombeta sauna in Barrio Alto. If you like men to be men, go here. Also more space to relax and watch television on a couch with a beer. Sometimes you have to Be a bit patiënt. But usuele enigheid people in the late afternoon.“
