Today the rumour spread quickly that the Thermos sauna had closed down. We found this news on gay.nl (https://gay.nl/articles/223461/sauna-thermos-gesloten/ ). In this article, a spokesperson was quoted to say that further news is expected next Tuesday (April 21). The article also has a photo of a note on the entrance door saying ‘Closed due to circumstances (temporarily)’.
Nightours.com has already removed the Thermos from their site. Although unfindable on their site, the Thermos page still exists – on http://www.nighttours.com/amsterdam/gayguide/thermos-sauna.html. On this page it says the Thermos has filed for bankruptcy.
We can not verify this independently at the moment, but it looks serious.
The news comes after the recent opening of the new gay Sauna Nieuwezijds, which opened a year and a half ago. If the Thermos does close down, this may have to do with the new competition in Amsterdam.
Further news will be posted on this site when it becomes available.
