English term or phrase: Man Cave
Today, I was translating a text about houses,
and there was a guy who's describing the house.
He mentioned the kitchen, the bathroom etc, and then he mentioned "man cave" as a room in the house.
I researched it and that's what I found as a definition:
A man cave or manspace, and less commonly a manland or mantuary is a male retreat or sanctuary in a home, such as a specially equipped garage, spare bedroom, media room, den, or basement.

Is it "غرفة مخصّصة للرجال" or do we have a better name for it?

Arabic translation:عرين الرجل
Explanation:
This is how I would call it. The word cave does not have such a positive connotation with man in Arabic. Another suggestion is : ملاذ الرجل
استراحة الرجل
غرفة استراحة مخصصة للرجال

On a second thought, justالعرين sounds much better.

Asker: Thanks so much for help. I think I will name it "عرين الرجل" as you mentioned it because later on in the text, he used the alternative word "den" for the same room, which in this case would be "‘العرين". Thanks again for help.
