Steamworks - Lights Out Thursday

Recommended Posts

Been thinking of making a road trip to Chicago for this.  Is it worth it?  Some of the reviews of this place on Yelp say that the staff is rude.

also they discriminate against older men. sad, b/c it is a great facility. you would think all the complaints would have resulted in some staff re-training.

I've been to SW Chicago a few times. The staff CAN be disrespectful, but who could expect to find nobility in such a place? That doesn't make it okay, but they know we can't take our business elsewhere. Mans Country is closed and gone, and the only other option is RAM (an adult bookstore). 

I once went into SW during Chicago Pride. It was late at night and I was totally knackered. When I was paying, I tried to show that the inflated fee was no big deal to me, and said "Whatever, I just want a place to lie low for the night and get a little rest." The attendant at the counter heard this, and thinking I just wanted a cheap motel, said "You're not getting in here tonight." I was a little dumbstruck. He pushed my photo ID back through the window opening and told me to hit the road. I was kinda stunned. First the rudeness, and second the presumption that I intended to sleep there and not fuck. I *might* have slept - I was certainly tired enough - and now I definitely had no place to go. Maybe I shouldn't have been so free and easy with the tongue, but still. That wasn't the end. While I stood a little frozen and dumbfounded, he served someone else. When he saw I was still here, he pointed toward the street and told me "It's not happening tonight. We don't cater to bums. Get out before I call the police for loitering." Not needing more stress and drama, I left. Was a long time before I went back.

Most of the experiences I've had were more positive. The staff is fairly helpful, but English is not their first language, so they don't understand things as clearly as we Westerners do. Part of the problem is a communication barrier. The other part is that they aren't obliged to show respect to you.

I love SW Chicago. I’ve been to various bathhouses around the US and this is by far my favorite. Huge. Clean. Nice. Well laid out and I’ve had some of the most fun here. 

I haven’t experienced rude staff beyond the norm, though I’m younger, white, good looking. Some customers are standoffish in the club, but it’s to be expected. 

There is no dark room here though and the “lights out” night is totally an exaggeration. Perhaps some areas are a bit darker than normal but if you didn’t tell me it was lights out night I wouldn’t have been able to tell it from any other night. Don’t go expecting a dark room atmosphere. It’s not that at all

Here @Steamworks Toronto, the lights are down low for LIGHTS OUT. Definitely a touchy-feely, sensory experience in the darkrooms! A time to use fingers and hands and hard cocks and whole body to “feel” with. Thursdays do bring piggier guys to bareback with. Try it, you’ll fall in love!
