The sauna itself is like it was 20 years ago, but more modern. Still, I find the showers too cold, the water jet is weak (Water is very expensive in Belgium, although it is a very rainy country). The worst is the owners but also the visitors. The clients: wheather you have grandpas (better change the name into "le Grandpa". The younger generation is "cold" indifferent and stupid....no handsome men, stupid faces, unhappy faces, walking plants and zombies.....all those people just look very unhappy. Nobody talks with each other in the bar, seems to be forbidden....Sauna-life since last 10 years is really going down since internet is cheaper for hook-ups....other saunas as Oasis or even worse: Spates four (which was 15 years ago one of the best and cleaniest ones) are really all going down....really depressing. Better stay at home with a beer and watching the Sound of Music and jerk off myself....for me it's fininished....Have not been 10 years in the macho, and after 10 years you meet the same lonely disparated guys again, just older and even more depressed.....No wonder that suicide after Finland is one of the highiest in Europe.....prefer to go to a Spanish or Greek beach....maybe i became to picky, or I should avoid the cheap discount evening maybe......

Ik ben op zaterdag 29/10/2016 naar de main party geweest. Hier is mijn verslag:
Wow. De beste party ever! Locatie is in een woord te beschrijven : de beste! Giga groot, ik schat ca 10 duizend gay/bi male party goers uit de hele wereld, maar toch konden wij nog steeds lekker dansen en geen gevoel hadden dat de zaal te vol of te warm was. Zeer ruim, schoon en gekoeld. Doet me denken aan Gelredome Arnhem. Wel met beter geluid, lighting en decor.
Jong, oud, muscle mary's, twinks, daddy's, behaarde kerels, porno sterren, echt zoveel mooie internationale mannen en jongens (ook veel aziaten) in een gigantische venue als een stadion met zeer hoge plafond, concert banken op 't balkon.
Verlichting, muziek, sound, dj en vj waren zo spectaculaire. Show, choreografie en kleding waren uitbundig, super mooi en zijn zo perfect gedaan.
Er was hoog en lang podium dat enkel bedoeld was voor de show net als Circus de Soleis, compleet met verschillende soorten dansen en thema's, elke uur anders, plus de welbekende (goede) Vogue dans van Madonna. Maar ook tenminste 6 podia voor publiek zelf om te dansen, verspreid in de hele zaal. Er waren heel veel toilets, bars, banken om te chillen...
La Demence weet precies hoe ze een goede party en onvergetelijke avond/nacht moeten neerzetten. Alles is goed bedacht en geregeld: snel afhandeling bij de ingang (geen lange entree), goede lockers en meerdere bars, gratis fruit en lekkernijen, duizenden gratis verlichte rode hoorns die weggegeven zijn om de sfeer van Halloween night te creëeren (prachtig!), red carpet foto sessies met gespierde mannen, 600m play room, alles was zo professioneel georganiseerd.
Kortom : we zijn getrakteerd op een fantastische party en de 50 euro entree was zeker de moeite waard. Plus 1 extra uur party na 3u (wintertijd). Kortom, voor herhaling zeker vatbaar.
Vrijdag editie (28/10/2016) was ook goed, geen lange rij, snel gehandeld bij de garderobe. Wel erg druk. Muziek was goed.
I really like the sauna but after a recent post la d party I was disappointed. The staff at the entrance are rude and disinterested. When we were leaving we were significantly over charged. Even when ordering 2 beers I saw one of the bar tenders entering it as something else on the system. Seems like the staff are very unreliable and dishonest. It's a great party but they staff and management clearly take advantage of the fact that it's so busy. Make sure that you pay for what you actually ordered !
Not a bad place but crowds average age is like 120
My 5th visit in Brusseles and again i went to Macho Sauna ... defenetly for the last time. I came after Demence-Party. I knew that there will be many guys but it was so overloaded with "super-gays" that it was not possible to reach the locker. No Chance for Relaxing a Little bit ... no space .. nowhere. But the worst Thing is the staff there. I never had such a rude staff like there. The Young guy at the entrance was so rude and not interested in serving the visitors. He refused speaking just one word english (sorry .. Brussels is an international City). And the crowd there ... not my type at all. So i left after just 15 minutes and the guy at the entrance didn´t gave something about the entrance of 20 Euros i paid for nothing. Very arrogant and girlie Boys. Afterwards i went to Club 3000 ... well .. old fashioned but the staff was great ... he asked me if it´s my first time and than he showed me around. Crowd much more my type ... more manly guys and i had fun. Macho Sauna i can not recommend anymore. There are much better Saunas around!
Since it was taken over by a Paris owner, things went bad in sauna Oasis, prices went up: from 12 to 18 euro on tuesdays, but they redecorated in a bad way, ugly red colours. Only 5O % of the showers is working, and the cold ones doesn't work at all. Unfriendly frenchspeaking personnel, they don't even understand any word in dutch. Try to avoid.
War heute in der Macho Sauna ... nach der Demence-Party. Ein grosser Fehler ... der Typ an der Kasse ist die Unfreundlichkeit in Person. 20 Euro Eintritt und drin war das reinste Chaos. Der Laden so voll (meistens Super-Huschen), dass man nicht mal in die Umkleide kam. An Cruisen war nicht zu denken ... viel zu voll. Keinen Euro Wert. Hab den Laden nach 15 Minuten wieder verlassen, was dem Spacko an der Kasse auch wenig gejuckt hat. 20 Euros für nix. Bin danach zum ersten Mal in die Sauna 3000. Zwar in die Jahre gekommen, aber hatte meinen Spass dort. In die Macho Sauna werde ich nicht mehr gehen. Voll überheblich der Laden und der Preis rechtfertigt diesen Schuppen nicht!
We went there randomly and especially considering the few gay bars in Brussels.
THE WORST EVENING OF ALL MY LIFE!!!
I was literally stolen wandering hands: my phone, my money, my papers,... All my pockets were emptied I don't know how! Idem for our stuffs which was however there, on the bench at side us when we danced…
But the must isn't there... We were made put violently at the door on a stupid misunderstanding. One of the employees caught my friend (girl) by the hair and trailed her all the way along the room to throw her to the street! Me behind, trying to moderate this violent Mister (one does not treat a customer like that finally!). After having balanced (yes the term is that one even) my friend to the street, this employee caught my Duvel still full and emptied it to me on the head…
Manners more than disrespectful, stealing, violent staff,… One of the worst addresses in Brussels.
Indeed, this WAS a nice and hot place. Now : unfriendly staff, no action, ...
used to be friendly, now young boys drinking champagne and think they rule the world
not welcomming at all
best on a Sunday evening between 7pm and 9pm
full house, good music
from 9pm everybody moves to the new (3 years existing already) Station Bxl in front of Dolores and Le Belgica
your info is dated in the meanwhile there is a new French owner (Paris). The price went up to 18 euro and 15 eurao (after 7pm)
- the sauna close every day at 10pm
- the hottub is now ICE ICe ICe cold water!
- the small swimmingpool has dirty , not clear water and defentily needs some chlore to clean it
- the staff shouts at 9.40 pm closing down in 15 minutes, and the sauna and steamroom stops (doors open, floormats without being cleaned on benches)
yesterday 27//11/2015 same experionce the shout at you there where still 10 people there and everybody was kicked out just before 10 pm
we all concluded no more better to search for other sauna.
I've been several times to Macho Sauna over the past years and I am kind of impressed by the improvements they've made at some levels. It would look like the manager read some of the previous reviews... I went there on a Wednesday (under 30 night) and there were lots of guys so anyone who wanted to have some fun certainly had its own choice... For the facilities: lockers have been renovated, as well as the bar area and the showers... But the whole place is huge so you will certainly find something to do once you're there. It's not all perfect yet but I wouldn't call it outdated & dirty anymore. The staff is OK, nothing more, nothing less. I will certainly go again!!
Cadre sympa mais si vous cherchez du sexe, allez ailleurs... Par contre vous trouverez certainement des baleines échouées en train de ronfler sur un matelas ou s'assoupir dans un canapé (très confortable il est vrai...) et beaucoup de gens à l'âge canonique. Je ne critique pas, je suis moi-même mature mais là, la densité est vraiment élevée...Beaucoup de voyeurs, peu d'action... Ajoutez à ça une ambiance suffocante, une température trop élevée... A éviter sauf pour le buffet...
Récemment remis à neuf... Je n'appréciais pas la vétusté auparavant mais il faut avouer que les aménagements récents ont bien amélioré l'endroit...
full of fishy moroccan hookers!!!Be Careful
sad place run by sad people! No hygiene at all! Place full of robbers in the darkroom and full of moroccan hookers!!!
They use lavender chemicals in both hammam and dry sauna. The kind of cheap non natural product some people use in their toilet. Iy is just unhealthy, suffocating and smells disgusting!
Closed for inventory end 2014. Has never reopened since.
