Belfast Pipeworks Sauna is first gay bathhouse in that area. They have just uploaded a video, giving the curious a tour of its premises.
Pipeworks features a massive 35 man spa pool, a large 20 man steam room, a 20 man dry sauna, 14 rest rooms, a sling room, tea & coffee bar, internet lounge and a tv lounge.
This bathhouse is (or was) owned and operated by Andre Graham. He is without question, Northern Ireland’s most prominent gay man. He is a millionaire several times over for creating a gay quarter near St Anne’s Cathedral.
In 2010 it was reported he, along with his partner, Seamus Sweeney, were the owners of Pipeworks. It is unclear if that is still the case as of this date.
One reviewer wrote on Pipeworks
Been to lots of sauna’s up and down the country (Including Pipeworks Belfast) and by far this is the best of them all! It never used to be but with the almost complete over hall of changing its staffing. This is one of the most friendliest places to go. During the week it’s very much hit and miss if it’s busy or not. Most weekends after midnight it can get good with lots of hot action. Read a few of the older reviews and I can say I’ve never seen anything like that happen these days.
Anyways Belfast Pipeworks Sauna has produced this video, just click below and you will transport yourself to this infamous bathhouse . Enjoy!
