Biographical / Historical

Club South was a bathhouse for queer male-identifying persons located at 1708 South Boulevard in the South End neighborhood of Charlotte, North Carolina. The space featured private rooms, lockers, a sauna, and a steam room. Several rooms featured intricate murals. The bathhouse served as a safe space and gathering place for the Charlotte gay community, and the owner of the bathhouse also provided temporary housing accommodations within the building. The building was scheduled for demolition in January 2022.
