Very clean, very big, very sophisticated and very beautiful gay sauna and bar in the historic center of Fortaleza

One of the few gay saunas in Brazil where there's actually something good to say about the looks of the customers. Between the old and grey and young and fat dragons, you will discover a few male species in excellent shape. So, it's not absolutely mandatory to help yourself with one of the bimbo garotos. Most of these are rather beefy, well fed and stroll around as if they're on the catwalk. Less my style, but of course always a feast for the eye.

Few saunas in Brazil have a swimming pool, but Dragon Health Club does. The dry sauna is huge with different rows of benches but furthermore nothing special. The steam sauna on the contrary is unique with its curved walls, entirely covered with small mosaic tiles. As if Oscar Niemeyer was involved in designing this gay hotspot. The shower room is very public and centrally located. Nothing to hide. Parking facilities at the lowest level of the building.

Entrance is not cheap, but you can save something if you don't use the sauna facilities. The boys have a separate dressing room with lockers.

“Absolutely the most beautiful sauna of Brazil”
Reviewed February 18, 2012

This place deserves an award for best gay sauna design!
Been here several times in 2008, 2010 and 2011. Great place. What I like here is the perfect mixture of hot locals and cute boys. If a local calls me 'Deus Grego' then I know how late it is.
But apart from that, this sauna is extremely well designed. The round shapes of the wet sauna for example. The dry sauna is well lit on one side, but gets darker at the other end. In the weekends local and talented musicians perform. Don't think of drag queens (hell no), but of straight lads from around the block with a guitar and a good voice. I melted totally. There's also a huge open terrace where you can have your drinks. Entrance is quite discreet, one block from the cultural center with a similar name, and you can enter with your car directly in the basement. Next step is high tech because they scan your finger, so no one else will put drinks on your bill.
But after all, this a fantastic and safe playground, compared with the rest of Fortaleza and it's beaches.
