Originally two stories, this location lost its first floor space to another company a while ago. It closed during the pandemic, reopened briefly in June 2021, but then closed permanently in October 2021, apparently due to a nonrenewal of their lease. I believe the two floors are now being used for retail and office space. This site should be changed to "Permanently Closed."

Due to its location, West Side Club attracts younger guys. There are more gay bars and clubs nearby, so some guys drop by this place before or after to get some sex.

Generally it will have more hung Black guys who are super picky; the rest of the guys are your typical cliques. The shower and sauna are gross and don't get any cleaning from the staff, so make sure you bring some slippers or flip flops to walk around.

Went there on a weeknight and it was bright as day. My friend asked if they could turn down the lights and the black room boys started giving him attitude. The Caribbean guy with dreadlocks at the reception was equally rude. These people need to learn customer service as men who go to this place pay for their salaries. The least they could do was be polite. Instead, they were rude and disrespectful. Why they keep these folks here is beyond explanation.

After a several year hiatus, I have visited three times in the last couple months. One of these visits was on a Friday night and I connected with five guys of varied ages and ethnicities over the course of my four-hour stay. I am 55 and in decent shape but far from an Adonis. I found it very easy to attract attention. My only complaint is that on that night at least, the only top I could find wanted to fuck me bareback, so I had to turn him down. After fucking the first two guys I was with, I was really hoping to find someone to address my other needs, but I left disappointed. I will be back. My suggestion to those who complain about the "attitude" of the staff and clients here is "you reap what you sow."

This place is certainly not like the great bathouses of old. The steamroom/sauna NEVER works. Staff are friendly enough. I usually have luck only every third or fourth time here. You can count on plenty of trolls or younger queens with attitude.

I was there in April on a Friday night from 9 pm to about 1 am and had a pretty good time. Very friendly crowd, very frisky crowd. Several three-ways in different rooms and lots of hallway action downstairs between monitor checks. Got off at least four times and even made the last train back to Jersey.

Horrible before, horrible now, horrible forever. Just like real estate, location -- proximity to Chelsea -- makes this the place to see Chelsea boys with attitude to match. Management doesn't have to work very hard to get people to show up, and their attitude shows.

I went here this past weekend and had a great time. The staff were very helpful and I had at least 4 sessions of some really good anal. True there are a lot of guys who walk around and strut, but why waste time? Walk the halls and pick an ass that is looking at you on the bed in the room and plow away. If you can't have a good time here then you are lame. Lots of really great married ass and cocks. Yum!

This place is another pathetic example of what NYC has to offer for bathhouses. Located in the Chelsea area -- it's a mecca for methheads and roid boys. It's all about S&M (stand and model) guys who think they're too good to speak or have sex with anyone. Sad commentary on NYC men and places.

Went here on Tuesday after reading all the reviews I was not sure what to expect. I arrived at noon and was very surprised at how friendly the front desk person was. The guest room attendant was very nice and also took the time to show me the ropes and where everything was. The place was very well mintained and clean. The bathroom was clean. Of course there was no steamroom and I did not get to see downstairs as it was not open. The clients numbered about 20 people till around 4 pm when it definitely got busier. All in all, a good time and the room was well worth getting as I did connect with 3 good tops and a short session with the help, too!

I have been to baths all over the US, Europe, and Asia and while there are differences, much of the basic operation is the same. Not this place. I did not have a room and was making out with a guy in a toilet stall in the deserted basement washroom. The security guard busted us and threatened to kick us out. No working sauna, no steamroom, no porn room? What the fuck? I am not a member so I had to pay the $15 temporary membership and $17 for a locker. One of the worst bath experiences I have had. Stay away is my advice.

Subject: Staff steals Heads Up!
Someone is stealing and my guess is staff are doing it. They can manipulate the lockers to get in without a key. My iPod was stolen from my locker, yet the locker was still locked. When you complain at the desk, everyone's English is suddenly very poor. I suggest you always use the lock boxes for any and all valuables, but even then I don't trust them.

I went recently on a Wednesday afternoon and had a very good time. The mix of guys is great and I had myself 3 very nice sessions. The first guy was late 50's, but very fit and the other 2 were in there 30's. We used my room and boy, was it fun. I had to borrow condoms from a few patrons as I ran out. The last Latin guy was into being watched so the door was open while he pounded me and the crowd enjoyed our show.

This place is small. It may seem huge because it's located on the 2nd floor of a shared building, and the mirrors covering the walls inside the club. It seems strange that every room has a posted sign that only 1 person is allowed inside. You'll have more action in an ABS found throughout Manhattan.

I finally gave this place a chance and I was really glad that I did. I found it to be clean and a great atmosphere. The rooms are fine and kept up. The mix of men was great. All ages and mostly guys in decent shape. I am a nice looking guy with a good body and great ass and I ended up getting safely fucked by three different guys.

No place could be dirtier, grosser, and more poorly maintained. Why the owners won't invest in cleaning it up and making it sanitary and usable is a huge mystery. It could be a gold mine, given the location.

Maybe there are other bathhouses with better facilities, but I have yet to visit another club where the guys are as hot as they are here.

After reading a couple of the comments I was hesitant to visit this place. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. There were so many hot men: black, white, Latino, Asian. You name it and it was there. There were a few older guys, but not as many as I thought I would find. My only complaint is that people just seemed to walk around. Not much sex going on. I went with the goal of fooling around with a hung black guy. Hours past, and nothing. Then this really hot hung white guy came into my room and he fucked me and proceeded to play with my ass for what seemed like 2 hours. I got a good stretching that left me wanting more. The club did not seem run down at all, and I was surprised how they escort you to your room when you first get there. The club is huge so this is a great service. I would definitely recommend this place.

This club is easily becoming a replica of East Side Club. Men are getting older, more out of shape, etc. There are occasional younger men, and it's good to see a mixture of all types once in a while. I went there over Memorial Day weekend and it was all the same type of desperadoes. They should really expand the gym so some of these men can work out. Where do all the youngish crowd go? One visit here can be a big turn-off.

Guys, as at all bathhouses, leave your wallet, keys, and valuables in the small safe deposit box at the front desk. West Side Club has one for all attendees.

If you want your wallet stolen go to the Westside Club. Numerous clients have been scoped out at the desk. You're assigned a locker in an area that has little traffic. Then an extra key will empty your locker of its valuables. Beware of the workers!

I had a good time. I was not going to go after reading comments here but I am so glad I did. Yes, many walk around and look, I did. I went into two guys' rooms and had two guys come in my room. So fellas, go and make it what you want it to be.

I've gone a few times and had both good and bad experiences. There aren't always hot guys but I've hooked up with some extremely hot guys here. I find the place reasonably hiegenic. There are sheets and pillowcases and they are changed between guests.

Everything that you hear about this place is true. Sometimes the staff behave as if they are on a mission to force the club to fail. Around 6:30 or 7 am the staff turns on every room light and all track lighting to maximum brightness. That said, people who complain about the clientele's attitude are usually guilty of far worse. Clean/dirty, busy/dead, friendly staff/staff-with-schmattitude. Mostly it is what you make it...unless it isn't!

I went yesterday around 5 pm and it had many good-looking guys and old men in shape as well. It was kind of slow. And it was a disappointment to find the sauna closed as most of the actions tends to happen there. I would return but when it's crowded to see if gets better.

This is a depressing shithole. The sauna is closed and they have just one shower. The clientele couldn't be more sleazy, rude, arrogant and pretentious. Besides, there is nothing hygienic at all about the whole place. I went two days ago, stayed thirty minutes and I couldn't take it anymore. It's definitely a waste of time and money.

More like a 'bathhouse with no facilities'. This place is fine if all you want to do is walk around or sit in your room. The steam and sauna are closed from the board of health, the jacuzzi has been covered and sealed over, the porno room has been turned into HIV testing. For NYC, compared to bathhouses in Florida (Club Orlando and Club Fort Lauderdale) and California (Flex) and major metro cities, this place sucks. Yes it is crowded, but there is nowhere to go other than someone's room (or your own).

Great place with lots of gorgeous, buff black guys. As a normal white guy, I didn't get a ton of attention but there was lots of eye candy. I was surprised at the quality of the men. If you are into very good-looking black muscle men, this is the place for you.

They cheat you on time. They time-stamped my security envelope forty-five minutes ahead of time to try and get me to pay for another hour. When I pointed out that there must have been a mistake, even with a text message on my phone I sent from Times Square fifteen minutes after they said I checked in, they stood by their time. NYC has become very restrictive. Don't expect much from sexclubs, but it's still a great place to visit!

Truly, this place absolutely sucks! It used to be great but they destroyed it. If you are ancient, terribly out of shape or psychotic you will be at home here. The last time I went (a Friday night) I looked around for about forty-five minutes, went to my room alone and masturbated. Then I took off and promised never to waste my money or time going there again. The last four times I went, I couldn't find even one guy I'd have sex with and trust me, I'm a whore with pretty low standards. The worst!

I visit about once a month and I've had some of the hottest sex of my life here. Sure, there are some older, fatter troll types but there are almost always some really gorgeous men as well, and there are men of all sorts of ethnicities. I think there's something for everyone, including muscleboys, cute Latin papis and twinks. I'm a pretty cute, muscular guy in my early thirties and I generally don't have trouble picking up some of the hot guys there. The most attractive crowd tends to show up late on Friday and Saturday nights; Sunday evenings are sometimes good too. A friend and I went together very late on a Saturday night a couple of weeks ago and played with three different hot guys in our room. As far as the staff goes, they are competent and I haven't found them to be rude. Besides, you're not going to be playing with them!

I recently went to this place, traveling to NYC for the first time. Also, I had read the reviews for this place. They are right on the money. This place is boring! First of all, they require payment in cash, no credit cards. So I had to find an ATM close around the corner. Then I got back and paid for a locker. There were a decent number of guys. Some were walking around. A few were in their rooms, looking. Some had their doors open. I had every intention of going to the wet or dry sauna, as it was extremely cold outside and wanted to warm up a bit. Well, both saunas are closed seemingly on a permanent basis. What a letdown! So, the only alternative I had was to walk around their first floor and second level. Boring! It seemed like the guys were just walking around like mice in a maze (me included). I soon tired of being a mouse and went to get my clothes and my ass out of there. The West Side Club is about as exciting as watching two lesbians drool over a Home Depot grand opening. Not my idea of fun. Read my lips: don't waste your money at the West Side Club.
