Come and get your man-sails hoisted, and your scuttle well and truly jibbed. Yeah, that’s right. We bet you love a good jibbing, you filthy minx.

It’s on the cosier side as a London gay sauna, but has a bubbly spa pool and plenty of spaces to get acquainted with other seamen. There’s also a roof garden. There are plenty of themed nights offering discounts for students and those that are big-n-cuddly.
