Steamworks has been providing men 18 years & older with a
clean, comfortable and stylish place to meet other men, relax, workout
and play 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for 33 years.
Steamworks currently has clubs in Berkeley, Chicago, Seattle Toronto,
and Vancouver. Each club has its own distinctive personality that
reflects its place in the local community – however the industrial
design aesthetic is unmistakably Steamworks. It is this foundation
through which we have created unique, truly masculine spaces.
Whether you are here hanging out, working out or making out, think of
Steamworks as your free space on the game of life - a place where
man2man interaction is not only accepted, but encouraged.
Ok, so the facilities are awesome and the place gets loads of hot men …
but its more than just a pretty façade – Steamworks has a strong
tradition of community leadership tackling the issues that impact our
community such as: health and wellness, drug & alcohol abuse and HIV/STD
education. In 1985, when the gay community was being ravaged by AIDS,
Steamworks saw the need and opportunity to use their clubs also to help
educate the community about HIV/AIDS. They created Steamworks Health
Information and Education Programs (HIEP).
So by now you’ve probably realized that this is not the dirty, dark
baths of the old days. Steamworks runs clubs that are clean, well
maintained and well outfitted with great equipment–the gyms, the hot
tubs and saunas, the DJ booth and sound system, the digital video system
with multiple channels of the best new releases and some vintage adult
videos, theour thoughtfully designed and appointed private rooms or the
varied and truly imaginative play spaces.
