Hiii guys.. I'm new to Melbourne and too the scene . do not know anybody yet . its it cool to go along alone .. Cheers vixen.:))
We was there this saturday the 6 dec 2015 with few guy friends but the security was very rude he told us to look down that we dont have a dick that we have to stay in the quiue to get in wot a rude and negative attitude toward us .the point is that we not gaybut we respect a guy people why have to be rude toward us cos we not gay ?and cos we are Asian and he can say like that to us ?u guys have to respect if they gay or not just give them respect this is australia not some mind narrow country
Nice sauna. I went on a cold rainy Sunday afternoon. It wasn't that busy but those that were there were certainly enjoying themselves. I did too. The steam room was nice with cool pulsing LCD lights. The pool is huge (you can do laps in it) and they have a little shop where you can buy toys and things. The maze upstairs is literally a maze (got lost). The place distantly reminds me of Steamworks in Chicago.
I went on a Saturday night around 9PM. I have never seen so many hot guy in one place - everyone seemed friendly and not an attitude in sight - though this is not the bar to find a twink, that's for sure. The bartenders were also friendly and smiley (and gorgeous!). I would come here every time I'm in Melbourne!
Not for the shy or faint of heart. I went 3 times and always found action downstairs in the dark room. Guys vary but they do everyone (and everyone is hot in the dark LOL). Condoms and lube provided upon check-in and you can store your valuables (and clothes!) if you want. The place is huge, great layout, something for everyone. Would love to come back when there's an event.
Good, unpretentious space with straight acting men. Has some really awesome events like Trough. Cheaper than going to a sauna and you don't have to walk around naked. Has latest release movies while you take a break.
For Melbourne, I think this place is good. I wouldn't bother going until around 1-2am, and you need to be in the mood for dancing. Music is average-good (for a gay venue). Dance/house/electro. Considering its really the only gay dedicated-dance club in melbourne there isn't much competition... Melbourne could do much better. But that being said from the times I have attended, the majority i have enjoyed myself.
Not like any other gay club. Real Guys. Real Dance Music. Real DJ's. Crazibiza and John Course (both international recognised) where playing when I attended.
Danced with this local dude for hours. Close to 1500 people there till around half 7 in the morning.
This is a club for people who like dance music, and not handbag crap. Refreshing!
music is not comparable to ARQ in Sydney,just don't make you wanna dance and they charge an 20 entre fee, and before 11:00pm they ask ppl not on VIP list to wait outside the door.The drag queen was pretending to look trendy but just faked everything. I just think they have a attitude.
It used to be good (though not flash etc), with great crowd of no-attitude regulars. The renovations & new owners changed things, not all for the best. It's a flash venue now: and I think the heart and soul changed for the negative. In my opinion the patrons have more attitude now, and whilst some staff can be really good, others can also bad (rude or bad attitude and not friendly). It's no longer worth joking & talking to security, which I used to before staff changes. I personally don't feel safe or welcomed there any more. Drinks can be expensive depending on what you order. The acts used to be good. The acts can be good now, but not always consistently like they used to be in my opinion. I recommend you look out for yourself and friends, be careful and try to stay safe, when out on the scene at all venues (not just in Melbourne but nationally).
Spectacular love it love it friendly staff great shows and venue
I went in November and had a lovely time..very friendly crowd. I liked the large space with different rooms. free admission was also a positive
ii'm gonna give this a 4-star. I wish they had a giant bed for more group action but this little piggy is also a greedy pig and i pigged out a lot while i was there. friendly staff
very nice, trendy space. it is a bit pricey but australia is expensive in general, especially drinks. the music tended to be top 40 dance on the nights i went. i prefer deep house but still had a good time
Went there on a Thursday night and was let in by security with no problems. Went back on a Friday and was asked to present ID. When I presented my US Driver's License, the bouncer at the door said that it was not a valid ID and was about to refuse me entry. My partner presented his UK Driver's License and was also told that it was not a valid ID. Apparently, only Australian IDs and official passports are valid. While I understand the need to check ID's to eAustralia is 18 and I'm 35 and my partner is 45!! We remained calm throughout and questioned how tourists are supposed to know that only Australian IDs or passports are valid, and most tourists would not usually carry their passport on a night out. The bouncer then proceeded to show us the policy on the board. After we told him we were there the night before and that no one asked for ID, he decided to let us in. Friday night is men only. The crowd is nice and friendly, but the whole not having a valid Australian ID thing put me off. If that wasn't bad enough, they were charging people $5 AUS to go up into the dark room. ARE THEY SERIOUS?! Australia is getting ridiculous with their rules and regulations of late, and the calibre of guys that I saw in the bar definitely does not warrant such a velvet rope policy. It's no wonder all the hot Aussie boys have fled Oz for Europe and beyond.
Good fun, but head later. Kinda dead till around 2am.
Amazing shows! Absolutely amazing! The music was fun and sing-a-long, not really clubby, but fun none the less. Definitely the place to go early in the night.
Had so much fun here.. Real nice friendly crowd. Definitely the most fun gay bar I visited while in Oz..
Well one of Melb's longest running and greatest cruse clubs opened 7days a week would have to be a must go. pricing not to bad i think a discount for slower days is in order pvt room from $15-$25 very cleane with everything you might need.safety packs place all over the venue. Very friendly staff that Respect your Private Needs Age rage around 18-60 from Tweeks to sex pig to leather daddy's club 80 also have some of the best party's nud, gold, trough I been to all of them and still keep going back down side price on slower nights no smoking room slow computers and nasty coffee
