Nottingham has the following gay/lesbian bars and clubs:
The New Foresters, Propaganda. The Newmarket can be described as "gay friendly".
The Lord Roberts used to be a gay bar. After a recent change of managment, they are no longer a gay bar - we are awaiting the verdict as to whether they remain "gay friendly" - at the moment some groups are still meeting there.
There are 2 saunas: Reflections and CS2. There is also a sauna (Manzfields) in Mansfield.
