Noticed today that the old King's bakery was being done up...the guys working in there said it's going to be a Thai massage parlour.
I hope they keep the lovely 50s display window (vitrine?) at front.
Oh for goodness' sake. Are you sure? Islington have banned any new sex businesses but I suppose that's Haringey. Can someone unearth the planning application?
@Mirandola, am only sure of what they told me. There is, I suppose, a possibility they were taking the mickey; there is also the possibility that it will be a genuine massage business rather than a knocking shop. Breath NOT being held!
What number is it?
Planning App number is HGY/2011/2199; here's the link - http://www.planningservices.haringey.gov.uk/portal/servlets/ApplicationSearchServlet?PKID=251068
Odd. Haringey has a clear policy of not allowing any new sex businesses to open. http://www.haringey.gov.uk/draft_sex_establishment_licensing_policy.pdf
Planning permission is definitely for a legit therapy/sauna place rather than for a brothel madquerading as one. If it turns out to be the latter what do we do to get it closed?
Make a fuss? Mind you, the express lunch at the apparently-related restaurant in Fortis Green looks like a bargain!
You know, I think it is legit. In which case, good luck to them.
Might try it out if they do some opening discounts...
Seriously, what's so wrong with a knocking shop? Next to Nandos it could be convenient for many and do a promo with Beyond Glam across the road help bring that part up to scratch. Better than on the streets and the vibes from that old bakery will be cool - sausage rolls, fondest fancies etc. Chang
We've already got the proper massage place on FPR, would be nice if it is the other type. I don't think there's anything wrong with paying for a sexy massage, just hope it won't be all neon signs like the ones on Seven Sisters. I haven't heard any problems arising from the gay sauna behind The Dairy, or the S&M dungeon we have in the area.
They could probably give advice on the soundproofing thread.
First the gay sauna - seems to be doing well if the lack of voices raised against is any measure - and now an s&m dungeon?
Nothing wrong with the sex industry as long as people aren't exploited. I lived in Germany where it's legal and there are no pimps (from what I've heard). Sex workers are self-employed and pay tax. People on here joked about turning Chapter One into a gay cinema/sauna a year or so ago. No problem. I'd prefer that than loads of pissed up idiotic people shouting their heads off.
The S&M dungeon has been here for a long time, much longer than the gay sauna.
Without giving the exact address where aprox is the dungeon? And I'm not public schoolboy enough to be into it. Just curious about what's on SGR?
It's not on SGR.
Go on, @missannie, you know you want to tell us!
Maybe on Moray road I thought I heard the strike of the cat on passing.
We can't tell you where it is, or we'd have to kill you.
@Misscara: "We can't tell you where it is, or we'd have to kill you".
So, Mistress Cara, it is possibly an s&m dungeon with a speciality 'snuff' service ... Dignitas-lite on the doorstep? ... or (since s&m) possibly more likely called Indignitas!
Curiouser and curiouser ...
About time that place was put to use tbf
The s&m dungeon is really rather respectable, I'll have you know!
