Small but stylish gay gym
Yes, this is the same Sweatbox that is also a men's sauna and cruise joint, and operates as a kind of adjunct to the sauna — ideal for a gym-first/sauna-second experience, with plenty of darkroom possibilities. The atmosphere is relaxing and friendly. Gym membership includes access to the 24-hour sauna facilities. Opened in 2008.

      Filthy, stinky, poorly maintained
      Shocked by the filth, lack of maintenance and overall condition of the place. Such a pity that it doesn't come close to standard set in other European capital cities. The patrons were equally unfit.

      Clean and lovely, but the intelligence
      PLEASe tell next time to the UseR bEforehanD, that with the 24 houRs pass you may be 8 hours per time and then gO away, and to coME back after two hours! Nowhere is seen the rule, only the staff guy starts to give feedback to the customer, when he is leaving. Why is then there a sleeping room, where can not have sex? If a customer has sex for two hours, he has 5 hours time to sleap and then must go for two hours to the street.

    • Great place
      This place is amazing. Full of young guys I'm only 24 so was good. Activity happening everywhere. It's very sweaty in the wet area hence the name but adds to the erotica. Will definitely go again when in London.

      Rather good, could be better
      I went to Sweatbox many times, particularly on Sunday, when I want to get laid without endless chats. In the first floor sauna, hot baths, showers, in the basement just cabins (cold), dark room. The place is ok, but considering the price should be better: for example more condoms and lubricant in the cabins. There are many people who simply go around, I guess not everybody have sex. Anyway I had many hook ups: mybedattitude.com

    • Twink Heaven
      This place is Twink Heaven on Monday nights. Whatever you're looking for, it's there! I've had such a great time, often with young guys who are there for the first time. Hot & romantic. This place is not called Sweatbox for nothing. The cubicles do not seem to be ventilated at all, so it gets really hot and sweaty! I actually like that. The place is clean and patrolled regularly. You can come and go as you please for either 24 or 48 hours. It's good value, especially the 48-hour pass. The staff is courteous. My favourite place so far in London.

      FIRST VISIT TO SWEATBOX SAUNA- LONDON
      YESTERDAY, I WENT FOR THE FIRST TIME TO SWEATBOX SAUNA IN LONDON. MY EXPERIENCE WAS NOT NICE. THE MAN ON RECEPTION WAS EXTEREMELY RUDE AND UNHELPFULL. I THOUGHT THESE GAY TYPE PLACES WOULD BE WELCOMING FOR GAY PEOPLE, WHO ARE AFRAID TO COME OUT. I DONT THINK I WILL EVBER GO THERE AGAIN. MAYBE SWEATBOX NEED TO SEND THEIR STAFF ON CUSTOMER SERVICE TRAINING ?

      Ok´ish
      I was there on a Wedenesday evening, ±30 people there of ages 25-45. There was a foam party that evening in a small area of the sauna (normaly steamroom?), but limited action in there. In general not to big place and like all places it depends on the people who are there. Sauna facilities are a bit worn (1 jacuzi, 1 sauna, 1 steamroom, showers). The cruising was ok, although the private rooms are small and didn´t look that clean. The relax area was cold... Left with a bit of mixed feelings to return sometime or never come again... probably try something else when in London again. In general there are nicer places in Europe.

      A younger crowd than other London saunas
      Sweatbox is at pains to market itself as different from other London saunas. In some respects it is. The crowd is generally younger and with regular parties featuring DJs and appearances by porn stars they do at least try harder than other venues. The choice of black paint and red lighting makes it hard to judge the quality of the fit out and cleanliness, but I think Pleasuredrome has a much higher spec fit out. If you get frustrated at the older and, to be brutally honest, sometimes seriously out of shape and slightly desperate patrons that other saunas can attract then Sweatbox may appeal, but the younger crowd can be more reticent. I don't think Sweatbox will really change anyone's perceptions of saunas, but if they appeal to you, this is worth checking out. One complaint is that the towels are made of synthetic materials rather than cotton. Also note that various types of passes (48 hour) are available and a small deposit is also required for your locker key.

      Big club
      Big club spreaf out on 2 levels. Small lockers. The layout is fun although the plastic that covers the floor and sometimes the walls makes it look as if it's dirty. Nice jacuzzy. Mix of age but mostly young guys. Lots of tourists and asian guys (for the ones who are interested in asian guys)

      If your looking for a nooner at a sauna, this is the one to go to. Great gym and a lot of guys need a treat after working out.

      Great venue
      Clean, well laid out, huge jacquzzi, two wet and dry rooms, lots of cubicles, even a sling room and most importantly a mix of sexy guys of all types. Staff are very friendly and helpful. A great addition to Londons bathouses...
