Cruising pleasures in a 40-man steam room
The more central of the two existing saunas in the Chariots chain opened in 2003, and was given a slightly new layout in 2014, with the installation of a cage and more cruising opportunities in that darkroom kind of way. Located minutes around the corner from semi-competitor Pleasuredrome, which tends to attract a slightly younger crowd than here. Strict 'no drugs' policy. The other outlet in the Chariots chain — at its peak there were five, including the 1996 Shoreditch original — is located in Vauxhall [see entry]. Tube station: Waterloo.
