      Went last night and it was not only embarrassingly bad, it was criminal! This place needs to be gutted and redone or just knocked down by a team of bulldozers. Entering through the rickety front doors was a laugh--the outer door is nearly falling off and the inner door is some pretense of a security door made of plywood and a pipe. Sloping floors make for awkward navigation in the nearly total darkness. Halfway to the lockerroom was an area of worn out sofas with a leaking roof where water poured in. The lockers themselves were ALL broken and not to be trusted for safely storing any valuables. Non-functional urinals, showers, and other "sanitation" fixtures look as though the mantra here is "once it is broken don't ever fix it". Rude signs about "not providing maid service" show a hostile attitude toward paying clientele who are grossly overcharged, particularly when none of the money taken in is applied to maintenance. This is a sick and shameful example of just how bad Tampa can really be.

    • Quit going there several years back because it was such a wreck but after the Ybor facility closed we had nothing left but the two Drew Park clubs. Tampa Mens Club had extremely rude and insulting staff and is overpriced and fake, with nobody there. Rainbow Cabaret now is similarly empty. The roof is rotting through and leaking everywhere, collapsing onto the former TV area where they have spread plastic bags. Slip and fall hazard is amplified greatly on those sloping floors. Filth, decay, and total absence of even a bar of soap (or working lavatories and urinals) leave this place ready for the wrecking ball.

      Health Hazzard
      I recently started going to the Rainbow Cabaret because the Your Resort and Spa closed down. I started going there 10 yrs ago when the first opened up and it was a busy place with a nice staff. But sadly none of the money the place was making got reinvested so the place went down hill quickly but just how far down I had no idea. When I went back a couple months ago I was amazed just how bad it had gotten and dangerous, but I'll get to that in a minute. The once friendly staff has been replaced with a staff of very unhappy, rude lazy people that would not know good customers service if they were slapped in the face with it. And speak to customers in a very down grading almost abusive way. But as for the place it's self, well in all honesty it should be shut down as a health Hazzard. Anybody with half a brain would realize that while running a business that promotes anal sex and the releasing of body fluids that extra sanitation measures would need to be taken. But not this place. This place has recently removed all soap dispensers from the promises because people were using too much. I can think of no place than a bathhouse that would need soap more. And the staff there is lazy and takes absolutely no pride nor concern that the amount of filth that has accumulated over the last ten years is now actually a health Hazzard. Bad enough that I myself had gotten a staph infection twice from going there. So patron beware..this is absolutely a place that should have a sign posted Enter at your own risk.

      Due for a Total Makeover
      This is the most ramshackle cesspit of a bathhouse I have ever encountered. It was bad when I first discovered it 8 years ago but now it is beyond ruin. Start at the front doors--they are rusted through and falling off the hinges. The inner "security" door, consisting of a piece of plywood and a pipe, is a pathetic joke. Inside, most of the lockers are busted out and will not latch. The TV in the lounge does not work and the vending machines are only half a step behind, often empty or failing to deliver after taking money. One short, balding attendant is rude, crude and a total discouragement at his best--try calling on the phone to find out how totally malevolent he can be! The entire interior is a leaking, drafty old barn dressed with leftover debris from a thrift store refuse pile. Mold, mildew and grime are everywhere. Patrons no longer are. Gay Tampa has the most horrible and exploitative bathhouse scene in the U.S.. Utterly disgraceful.

      Best In Tampa Bay
      Look, if you're looking for a deluxe bathhouse, go to Europe! This place is sleaze and kinky, but it's all part of the excitement. It attracts a varied clientele, mostly older, but all hot as hell. Little attitude and all kinds of kink in sauna, sling, dark maze, patio, and many dark corners. I have never gone away frustrated. I.ve had some of the best sex of my life here. For some reason, it attracts mega-hung guys. One other thing--most people here don't live a gay lifestyle, so they really let loose when they get a chance. Lunch hours can be hot, Weekend days and nights are wild.

      Wow it's scarey
      This is the scariest bath house/play place ever. Make sure you bring sandals. I write a lot of review for places like this and this was the creepiest of them all.

    • always a fun time!
      I have been there several times (going tonight, as a matter of fact, HINT HINT NUDGE NUDGE). Have had a BLAST everytime I've been there. If you want chrome fixtures, marble floors go else where.

      People actually go here?
      Been there 2 times , last was Saturday night was horrible. I dont see why this place is allowed to be open due to the health and sanitary state of the club. Better off going to the Tampa Mens Club witch is brand new and plenty of guys.

      Good Place
      I visit Tampa every month and just found this place after the other bath house closed. Yes its run down, but its not nasty like everyone says it is, Been there several times this month, had a great time, I am bearish and yet had several men to enjoy. Kodus to the black man on April 25th, we met in the theater part. Great place, just got to pick the right time and day for what you are looking for. Will be going back soon
