About

Pipeworks in Glasgow is the go-to spot for a fun, laid-back atmosphere in the gay community. After a big refurb, it's more inviting than ever with a range of features. From private cabins for some downtime to a cinema cruise area for movie buffs, it's got a bit of everything. Plus, there's a special bukakee room and a private sling room for those looking for something a bit different. Open most days with non-stop action from Friday to Sunday, it's the perfect place to relax, meet new people, and just have a good time. If you're around Glasgow and looking for a chill, inclusive space, Pipeworks is a must-visit.

I'm always reviewing the place not the customers inside. I do not know why people write negative reviews of the clientele inside instead of accommodation, no fun = bad review. Strange.Overall this is the best place in Scotland so far. Lots of fun everywhere. See you soon The Pipeworks.

Always found this place a good place to chill with a good variety of guys. The staff are friendly and go over and above to help, despite me being inebriated over too many times.

Me and my friend Chris love the baked potatoes here. Would’ve been 5 stars but the portions could be a bit bigger x

If you’re looking for a pristine, friendly, and well managed place to chill with other likeminded people. This place won’t ever disappoint. The management go above and beyond to ensure that customers have a great experience. In my opinion, a lot of business should adopt this unique business model.

Just left the place they let me get in when no one was actually in there just took my money for nothing. I'm not from here and I didn't know the action is much earlier in the day. Super unfair to take someone's money like that.

I paid £20 and enjoyed the smelly facilities due to the lack of hygiene, especially in the showers that smell like piss. The sauna was almost empty and at the end of the afternoon when some guys arrived I had to leave because they made me wear a mask. Before paying I was not informed that that day I would be forced to wear a mask and not be able to identify anyone. The manager had an unacceptable attitude towards working with the public.

Full disclosure! I have traveled the world, just back from Morocco, I ALWAYS go to sauna I have even gay saunaed in Ireland!! So I know you will her the tired old cry of: ‘a wis first in that place when it opened, oh no private rooms or alcohols pops back then! But I have been since it opened until 2014 ish I lost my job was made redundant and no longer helped at the ‘Steve retson’ drop in. Almost decade has passed and the nostalgia of crimbo had ma! And after checking I had a private room to go to (I spoke to Martin, lovely and really helpful) I arrived 5ish and left the following day. In the cafe was Alex and Jami, forgive the misspelling, and through their shift: they cleaned, severed, answered weird questions (someone asked about moctails! Can you imagine) in fact they never stopped. Funny, pleasant and hard working. Just saying,,,

I went on a Wednesday, the £20 night. It was good, not overly crowded but not empty either. I didn't receive flip flops like the website says you get on a Wednesday. My only problem was that the hot tub was lukewarm, you actually feel cold after sitting in it. If it's expensive to heat a big tub then two smaller ones would suffice. Needs to be hot. I would go again though for the atmosphere, that was nice.

I had a thoroughly enjoyable experience. I visited on one of the dark nights, and being nude is mandatory after 6pm. The place was quite busy and I had a few fun sessions during my time. What I will say is that the sauna could have done with being swept out. Aside from that, things were great.

Super great atmosphere, comfortable resting area with lovely restaurants and spacious sofas. The sauna also has several floors which is much nicer than lots of other gay sauna in the UK; and most importantly it can also take contactless card payment, which is supposed to be in 2023 in a well-developed country-the UK. The pool is also really big and comfortable as well.

I visited for the first time on Monday afternoon and got very overwhelmed and left. I decided to try again on Wednesday night shortly after 9pm. Upon arrival, I was met at reception by a man with glasses and hat (sorry I didn’t catch his name as I was freaking out). I explained my situation to him and he took time explaining everything to me. He explained the membership, the themed nights particularly the masked night as I’d mentioned I was nervous and also a rough layout of the building. He did offer to walk me round but there were a few people queuing up at the bar so I said it was okay.I would like to say a massive thank you to this staff member for making me feel so safe and welcome as I ended up having a really great night. The place itself is surprisingly very clean and the music was top notch.I will be back with my confidence boosted all thanks to your amazing staff.

This was the first time I’d ever visited a gay sauna and I had a really great experience. The staff were really welcoming and were really reassuring when I mentioned that I was a wee bit nervous.The place itself was exceptionally clean and I saw someone cleaning up pretty much the whole time. There’s a diverse range of guys in terms of ages and body types which I also really enjoyed. The only thing I would say is that the drinks are a bit pricey but I suppose that’s probably what you experience at all saunas.As a disabled person, I found the building accessible but I’m not a wheelchair user so cannot say how it would be for someone who is a wheelchair user.I’m really glad I took out a membership because I will definitely be back! 😊

Was in Thursday 20th evening, the two bartenders on were lovely and the place was very clean. Some pretty hot locals were in too.

This is a great place to go for some relaxation. Facilities include a huge steam room, sauna and jacuzzi. Perfect for chilling out. There's also a bar which serves snacks and drinks.I've found the staff to be friendly and helpful any time I've visited this establishment.Clientele is always mixed in ages and personality. Some are happy to be friendly and chatty. Others not quite so much. A great place to visit which I'd happily recommend to others.

Over the years I have been getting tired of gay saunas taking your money and providing tired, rundown and DIY botched premises. Never really that clean either. The Pipeworks is really none of the above. Don't be put off by the exterior. Well presented, clean and spacious. Decent size sauna and steam room and large jacuzzi. Friendly reception. Took me a little time to work out the layout but great for cruising or relaxing. Actually quite good value considering I spent £20 the other week in Bournemouth in a sauna not even half the size or as well presented as this. Car park nearby. I'm not connected in anyway with the business or owners.

Visited the Pipeworks during a trip to Glasgow and I wanted to make my own opinion about the place after reading so many comments.It can be surprising at the first sight cause we open the door and fall on a lift. 😀I must say it’s probably the cleanest sauna I have ever been. The place is massive so to have it all clean at all times it’s a really good point.The private cabins well I didn’t use them so can’t talk about it.The security cameras. That for me is not an issue. I mean better safe than sorry. You don’t even notice them.The staff, absolutely fantastic. I never been before they took time to explain everything at the front desk.Definitely will go back next time I have the occasion to visit Glasgow.

Went a couple of days ago, only meant to be in for an hour. Ended up staying for 6. Bar staff were very friendly, facilities were top tier, seemed clean and was a few good looking naked dudes walking round the place. A credit to glasgows gay scene, recommended for all.

Visited The Pipeworks for the first time last weekend. I'd seen several good reviews of the place, so took the plunge and paid for membership plus admission for the day.A great deal of thought seems to have been given to the design - not just to the general layout of facilities, but also to the ambience of the place, particularly evident in the bar area with its carefully chosen furnishings and lighting. The overall impression I had is of a place where you can not only have a great deal of fun, but also rest and relax in very pleasant surroundings between adventures in other parts of the building. All facilities seemed to be available and working well.I arrived at The Pipeworks at lunchtime on a Saturday, and left about 7, having thoroughly enjoyed myself. It seems safe, well-maintained, and above all clean. Be aware that there is a charge of £1 for a replacement clean towel - given the soaring cost of heating a three-storey building to a temperature that allows for people in towels to wander about in comfort, I can't honestly begrudge it. Special thanks to Davey, who was at all times attentive and polite.I'm glad I took out that membership. I'll be back!

Visited from London. Guy at reception was friendly on arrival (was told it was naked Sundays with just a small towel only), mostly clean place, nicely stocked bar, lots of hot Scotsmen which is what I wanted! Was interesting exploring the two floors. Would return!

As an Englishman from across the border I have mixed feelings about this place. Very clean, great facility and lots of very amicable Scots guys. However, I found the person on duty to be borderline offensive. First I was never asked on entry if it was my first time, and consequently in other saunas I have visited, I have always been given a tour; here, simply handed my key and had to find where the lockers are.Then got reprimanded not once but twice for ringing the bar bell to buy a drink! Guy moaned how he couldn’t be in two places at once. Finally, when ordering I politely requested a fresh towel - which I was told cost £1 which on top of the £25 entry I do think is slightly over-the -top but, as I didn’t want to put my old towel on the bar, I simply asked if I should give to him. I received the very blunt reply:“I don’t collect towels you know, there are baskets in the entrance.” Had, of course, I been offered a tour I would have known this ! Comparing this to 4 other saunas visited in the last 24 months, I wouldn’t rush to come back. To the owner: your staff let you down here by their attitude towards visitors. Otherwise lovely facilities, thank you

Nice and clean sauna. Very expensive though. Not a fan of the private room idea ln the bottom floor. Everyone should just be in the same area. Won’t be back but good luck! ☺️

You may want to inform your members that your website pricing regarding 24 hours is totally misleading…after 12 hours if you hear on the tannoy in an American accent “this is a customer announcement can locker number?? Come to reception please…your advised to pay another £16 entry fee or leave…totally misleading & this needs updating on your website page which give the impression its 24 hours inclusive…trading standards have been informed.

The good: this is a large facility, with plenty of space. The steam room, sauna, showers and jacuzzi are all very spacious. The staff are helpful and attentive for the most part.The bad: I am astonished the leak in the cinema room has still not been fixed. It's been over two years since my first visit and I honestly cannot believe that this is still a problem. There is no excuse especially after prolonged closure during the lockdowns. There is paint peeling off the walls by the toilets. The upkeep generally is poor and is a pretty sad indictment as to the attitude of the people that run the place if they can't be bothered. Of course the punters will keep coming back, given the nature of the venue. But it feels like we're being taken for mugs and used as a meal ticket. I don't buy the "we are a small business line", when Big Top Productions figures show net assets of £2.3million for last year.

I went the Pipeworks Weds 29-12-21 and didn’t receive the usual warm welcome I’m accustomed to.The showers were ice cold and when I mentioned it to the attendant he said the boiler was broke.I asked why he didn’t tell me when I entered and he said he wasn’t aware they weren’t working after telling me the boiler was broke.The guy on the desk with tash definitely needs to less the attitude and needs a course in customer service skills.Very disappointed with today’s visit.

I love this place. Always have a fantastic time here. The facilities are amazing and always a good choice of guys. Staff are mostly friendly apart from the odd one or 2. My only grumble is tonight I got charged for asking for a replacement towel which I have never been charged before. I was a little taken aback by that even though it was only 50 pence but I thought the charge was not needed and perhaps a little greedy. I wonder if pipeworks could comment on this particular charge?

The Best One in the UK?I visited this place over the weekend around the middle of October 20211. The place is clean and free cabins are specious2. I had to pay for a last minute cabin to stay in as I too tired to go home which I enjoyed.3. Great atmosphere around. You go and do whatever you have to do and you come out.4. I love the variety of music they played in there5. I could go on and on. I had a nice time there.

Visit this place every 4-5 weeks. Constantly high level of service. People who work there are devoted and taking pride what they do. The management responsive to any issues and, I believe implementation a culture of appreciation of the customer base. The whole place Is well looked after, cleaned on regular basis although some 'surprises' are to be found due to the nature of the business. Good choice of none and alcoholic drinks and snack. Reasonably priced and nicely served. The guys always smile. I'll be back again soon

Great Warren of naughty ness, in Glasgow. Staff very friendly and helpful. Mostly clean and efficient a bit worn in parts. Private rest room very good, clean and well-designed. Other areas were not so luxurious. But overall good recommendation will certainly be back
