Discreet Manila is apparently Epitome’s unofficial website

I was browsing the G4M Tagalog forums at PlanetRomeo and was pleasantly surprised to find messages like the one below with my blog mentioned:

Among the four major bathhouses in Metro Manila, Epitome is the only one without its own website. Their online presence is restricted to promotion messages on gay social networking forums. Now, the managers think that my Epitome blog posts are good enough to serve as unofficial webpages. Hehe. (Note: taurus top, one of the Epitome people occasionally comments on this blog.)

So, to those people who stumbled onto my blog from PlanetRomeo, welcome! Hope you stick around! :-)

I hate to say this but it is a low-maintained bath house. It's been running for quite some time now and i think it is also time to do some upgrade.

1. Please provide rubbish bin in the rooms. So, we can dispose our used condoms properly.

2. One of the steps in your staircase is very risky. Kindly have it fix before an accident occur.

3. stagnant water on the floor of your shower room.

4. and lastly, always remind your patrons where smoking area is...
it had incident that one of the patron went inside the dark and got me burned.

Overall atmosphere, it is the place to hangout to... I enjoy the music so much.

No idea how those small Pinoys climb the steep stairs with their oversized steps ;-)
A good condition and a good sight are absolute necessities to find your way here. Everything is black and dark. But that's part of the game. Hidden in every corner, Pinoys are waiting for some pleasure. Being white and having blue eyes is not a must, but it will help a lot for the rest of the night. I was there on a saturday from 9pm to midnight and the guys were nearly queuing for me. ;-)
Limited number of far too small cubicles. Only vertical athletes will enjoy the limited space and the little bench inside.
Epitome is located in a decent residential area, with youths skating in the street at night. If your Malate hotel is only a few blocks away, you may go by foot.
Leon Guinto Street, between Remedios Street and Quirino Avenue.

Important Advisory:

Epitome Club Malate will have its FINAL Week of Operations at Leon Guinto St from March 18 to March 25 before we pack up and move for a better home. A Big Finale Show will be on March 24 Saturday.

Thanks for all the love, loyalty, bonding and memories we shared since 2004.

Until we meet again.
