For three decades, only one gay club in Manila has stood the test of time. Club Bath or CB as it is now more popularly called is still the cleanest and for me, the best designed bath house in the Philippines. Located at 2456 exactly at the corner of FB Harison street and Valhalla street (a few meters away from Pasay City Hall), the members only club does not have a signage. But their ever-helpful guard is always willing to assist any guy who seems to be looking for the club.
Club Bath has clean and spacious wet floor, which includes a steam room (which gets steaming hot especially whenever men converge in it). They have a TV area, a gym, library and rooms for rest and recreation. Entrance fees range from Php200-230 depending on days, membership costs Php250. If you plan to rent one of their rooms for more privacy, you can have them for Php350-400.
What for me is the distinguishing quality of this club is the "silence" among its patrons unlike the other popular bath houses where loud giggles among the regulars are a common scene. This "ever silent" situtation of the club makes it very friendly for the first timers and even for those come alone.
I hope that CB continues to bring a few more decades of pleasure and sanctuary for the gay man in Manila.
