Sauna Ferrère

large, 50% Gray

Le Bains Douches
Rue Gubernatis 7

Le Bains Douches attracts a mixed crowd of younger and older gay men, but the atmosphere is lively and energetic, especially on Wednesday nights and weekends. This gay sauna is a great place to relax in Nice after a day on the beach or a heavy night in one of the town’s many x-rated clubs. Facilites include Jacuzzis, hammam, air-conditioning and a sauna. It also has a bar, darkrooms and cabins. Entry 10 Euros per person.

The main gay area of Paris is concentrated in Le Marais region (East of the Centre Pompidou) especially in and around Rue Vielle du Temple.  However this area is fairy youth-orientated, although now there is quite a mixture and some new graygay or at bears bars have opened. It also has some particulalry good restaurants and cafés.

The EuroMens Club sauna and Alexanders' Bar are about 5 minutes walk from each other. Unfortunately, the Vagabond has closed since July 2011.

Alexander's bar

Very friendly bar situated near the Euromens Club Sauna. Recently changed ownership but bought by one of the regulars.

It also attracts a late night crowd for a nighcap after dinner.

4 Rue Saint Merri (Metro: Hotel de Ville)

Gray-10%, Admirer-5%, Rent-0%, Music Level 2/10, Cruise Factor 2/10, Elegance 8/10
17 Euro 3-Course Menu
Established more than 20 years ago as one of the firstgay-owned, operated and gay-friendly restaurants in the Marais,Le Gai Moulin packs in about 35 diners at two rows of small square tables squeezed side-by-side. The owner, Christophe, and his brother, Pascal, wait tables with particularly good humor, make friends with all their clients and sell T-shirts to GaiMoulin fans. gay or straight, with the tables so close and the devil-may-care attitude of the mostly gay clientele, it is almost impossible NOT to strike up a conversation with your neighbors and end up in a more animated and party mood than you entered with.

The quality of the food is very good considering the price. There is an "entrée du jour," "plat dujour" and "dessert du jour" to choose from as well as about six traditionally prepared dishes on the menu. All in all, this is an excellent bargain for a good meal and a great time. Reservation advised especially weekends.
