Legal Challenges for Saunas

Still on the subject of bathhouses and saunas, I was also struck on the Bathhouse Blog site by a couple of stories which reveal the contemporary legal issues that bathhouses seem to face in the UK.  The first concerns the rather well known Honeycombe sauna in Blackpool which was refused a license for alcohol beyond 8pm, but was granted extended opening hours.  I was slightly surprised by the 'sex club' fear comments as arguably that's how the club has traditionally been viewed.  However, their own website emphasises how the venue is mixed and for people of 'any sexual persuasion'.

The second story concerns Basement Sauna in Leeds.  It managed to get itself in a spot of bother over not having a music licence.  That must have been a blow for patrons, and not in a good way.
