    • Da Shanghai UTOPIA VERIFIED FEB 2024
        No. 12, Lane 80, Sec 1, Hankou St, Utopia Map
        2381-6276, 2311-0078

        Not far from cruisy 228 Park and Taipei Train Station. Look for a lane entering into the covered market area. Enter the lane and walk in about 150m and look for the red Chinese lanterns (with Da Shanghai in Chinese characters) and a bright orange door on the right side. This small, friendly neighborhood sauna is a pleasant surprise - not only one of the cleanest facilities in the city, but one of the friendliest - with unpretentious and warm clientele. 1/F has lockers, TV lounge, private cabins and two dark rooms, wet area with warm and cool pool, dry and wet sauna rooms, and showers. B/F has a video lounge, with more nooks and crannies, and karaoke. Can get very packed on weekends. Mostly mature customers and their fans. They offer coupons for reduced entry price on return visits. Even without a discount they are one of the cheapest saunas in the city.

        Comments from Utopians:

        "Pretty run down, but popular with the older local crowd. Sun peak time is 1-5pm (seems like after 5pm Taipei saunas empty out on weekends). You'll notice the red lanterns in the alley so you'll know you&'ve found it. Steam room had action. Lots of cabins, too. No dark rooms as such. Open Asian-style communal washing with Japanese style showers next to the steam room. Sauna is small. Karaoke in basement. Usual priceis NT$300. Open 24hrs." -- Hoogie, Jan 21, 2024

Shower area its very bright. The steam and sauna room are in the shower area. A karaoke room is in the next building, so you have to walk through the back alley from the G?F TV room.

It's NT$350 for 24hrs, so you can stay the whole night if you like (a lot of locals do). Busy and good action aon weekends.

    • Emperor Spa (Huang Chi 皇池) UTOPIA VERIFIED SEP 2023
        10, Alley 300, Xingyi Rd, Utopia Map
        +886 2-2862-3688, 2874-7979

        Take the MRT red (Tamshui) line to Shipai Station. There are taxis right outside the main exit that will take you directly to the hot spring entrance, so we recommend you do that and skip the directions which follow (there are multiple entrances from different directions to the hot springs, so a taxi is easier than bus and not too expensive - about US$8). Otherwise, if you don't mind walking and trying to find the correct hot spring: exit the station and turn right on the main road to the bus stop in front of the KFC. Take bus #508, 535 or 536 from here to Singyi RD #3 stop (there are 4 stops on the road). Get off the bus when you see the sign that says 300 Lane (NOT "alley"), which is at a bus stop right before the driveway to the hot springs. Go down the driveway past the parking lots and ask by name or show the Chinese characters below for directions (there are a lot of hot springs here, so be sure to ask to verify you are at the correct place). Huang Szu is up a short flight of steps. Pay at the counter near the entrance (bring your own small towel or buy one here) and prepare two NT$10 coins for the coin locker. Walk to the right, past the restaurant, and then right down some stairs to the ticket attendant. Take off your shoes and stow in the open cubby holes. Coin lockers for your clothes. Lovely outdoor facility with three types of hot mineral pools under a thatched roof, two cool pools, a tepid shallow pool for reclining on your back, showers, a large massage pool with different kinds of alternating jets for self-massage, dry sauna and steam room (some discreet action). Men of all ages here, with lots of Daddies, uncles, chubs and bears mixed in with the straights (so be discreet). Everyone is naked or with a small wash cloth. You can also get a decent one-hour, traditional massage at a good price. Best after 8pm, especially Sat night. Open 24 hours and some reports of activity after midnight until dawn. Pool for men is closed on Thu morning for cleaning.

        "About NT$250 taxi ride from Ximending area, but well worth it. Well laid out and was packed Sat with guys of all sizes and they all integrated well! Lots of great action and choice of play areas. Certainly a lot of fun and enjoyable! They called a taxi for me back to Ximending, too! I'll visit again!" -- Hoogie, Jan 21, 2024

        4/F No. 8 Min Tsu East Rd, Utopia Map
        2598-8859, 2598-8856, email

        Walkable from the MRT Yuanshan Station Red (Danshui Line). Take your shoes off on 3/F and put into plastic bags provided and carry to 4/F reception desk at entry. This unpretentious neighborhood men's club has several unique features: they serve alcohol, the have a clothing-optional gym for nude work-outs, and a large rooftop for nude sunbathing and special group parties. In addition to the very reasonable entry fee (even cheaper for Utopia Members) you will also pay a small towel and key deposit which is returned to you when you exit. Tiny towels only, so bring your sexy underwear if you are shy to walk around nude. To the right of the reception desk is their serious gym space. To the left is a lounge and hallway (with bj bench seating!) leading to one of two locker rooms. Adjacent to the lockers is the wet area (slippery floor, be careful!) with small, dark steam room subdivided by a hanging tarp. Also leading off from the locker area is a corridor lined with private cabins leading to a group mix room with couch and padded floor. Back in the bj hallway you can take a narrow stairway down to 3/F with more lockers and two more large mix rooms, one dark and one lit with red light. At 8pm the lighting in the bar and gym area goes dark with laser lights and dance music. Occasional DJ spinning live. Monthly parties. Crowd is gym-fit, 25-40, and less snobby than other venues. Open daily until 2am. Massage also available.
