Until recently, there hasn't really been any decent places to cruise in Tampa if your looking to hookup or have a quickie. Your usual cruising spots were public bathrooms, along the gandy bridge, even down in fort desoto along the water. Public places are generally risky thing to do unless you like spending the night in the county jail. A new gay bathhouse in Tampa offers a nice relaxed place to go and hang out, while getting what you are looking for. A typical bathhouse has a membership fee or a day pass for entry. They range in price from 10 to 20 bucks if you want to come in and cruise the place for the entire day or evening. At check in, they give you a towel, a room or locker, and you can walk around with only that while having others do the same. Just my type of place to find boys and men to play with!
I recently came across a new bathhouse in Tampa that I have only dreamed of. The place is called the Tampa Mens Club and is located at 4061. W Crest Ave, Tampa. (Hillsborough Ave and Lois area) right next to Ballys Total Fitness, and Buddies Adult Video. You can find their website by clicking here. It includes rates, photos, and information about the club.
I find that Friday, and Saturdays, are the busiest times there, while during the week around 2 to 8 pm the after work crowd comes out to play. This is a brand new bathhouse with plenty of secure and discrete parking available, not to far from Tampa Airport and the heart of Tampa Bay. Its a quick drive from Pinellas county (St. Petersburg) and all of the gay nightlife that Tampa has.
Until the Tampa Mens Club had opened their doors in 2011, there wasn't to much to my likings. I had used sites like adam4adam and craigslist m4m section, for my hookups and that can me a little tedious sometimes. With a place like this, it is easy to go and find what I need, in and out!
