Property developers could flatten Birmingham’s “horniest” club to make way for a 15-storey block of apartments in a move that has angered the city’s LGBTQ+ community.
Boltz, a male-only gay fetish nightclub with “dogging” and “play” zones which can hold up to 900 partygoers at a time, may be demolished after developers Prosperity Southside Residences filed an application with Birmingham City Council last week to make way for 147 flats.
BirminghamLivereported the latest plans come after two previous applications for the site were refused over noise concerns for future residents who want to live in the heart of Birmingham’s Gay Village.

A spokesperson for the property developer said their proposal “sits within a prime location within the vibrant Gay Village, a heavily diverse area which attracts a multitude of different people to Birmingham”.
Boltz’s website calls itself “the safest place to meet like minded guys to explore your every fetish”.
“From a drink at the bar, progressing to a spot of voyeurism to taking full advantage of our many spaces. Boltz offers a safe, pressure free, sexy and above all a fun atmosphere,” it continues.
Events hosted at the club include “Dare2Bare”, which has a “strict” dress code of “underwear or naked only”.

Birmingham’s residents were saddened by the potential loss of the club and began to reminisce about their time spent in the club, with one social media user saying: “Many a good night spent here.”
Another cheekily asked whether the club would be replaced by “a bigger erection”.
Lauren Rainbow, a councillor for Birmingham’s local Labour party, said at the time: “Many of us are keen to just make sure that the Gay Village is protected, and that we’re not seeing any rising tension from the people who are moving into the new housing getting frustrated with the noise and behaviour. They need to be aware of the area they are moving into.”
