The place could be great if it weren't for these details:- When we arrived, there were only 2 people inside, and they should have told us. We did arrive an hour before closing, but they should have mentioned it when we asked.- Despite knowing it was almost empty, they still charged us. They said it was half-price, but paying $25 to find only 2 people inside for an hour seems a bit much. This goes back to my first point: they should have told us if it was worth going in. I understand they want to make money—that's why they started the business—but misleading customers isn't right.If you plan to go, make sure to check how many people are inside and avoid going too late. I haven't been there when it's busy, but it looks like it could be a good place.

Dear Ken,I am just wondering is there a particular time or day that older people visit the club? Thanks for your assistance.Jim

This place is a rip off!!! They will charge a full membership fee just because you lost your card, pathetic! Not to mention it’s literally right in tenderloin; as you walk around you have a higher chance of getting shot (not excluding by fenny), stabbed, or run over by reckless drivers! The front desk person is totally unhelpful, fake, and clearly disinterested in his job or in customer service. Terrible, terrible place. This place does not treat their customers well.

I was hesitant to try out Eros new location given the review left by some people. I finally went and to my surprise the facility was quite nice and enjoyable. Granted, it's smaller without sauna and steam room but all facilities are well maintained with good ambiance for fun. And I had fun. The staff were friendly and helpful. They seem to do their best to keep the play space clean and functional. I understand the big challenge of running this type of business after covid and truly appreciate the tenacity of management to keep this gay fun space open. Yes, it's not perfect but it's good enough and I still much prefer this space to meet and connect with my sex positive comrades than using grindr or scruff.

Delivers what it promises -- it's not a bathhouse, it's a sex club and I definitely get that. I've been here 3 times and even on a "slow night" I've found plenty of willing participants of various types to engage with. I prefer a younger crowd and that can be a bit thin here but I've always been able to engage with at least one hot, much younger guy. There are no truly private spaces, and that works well for me. The bathroom/shower rooms are a bit rough, but not unclean and certainly functional. The play areas seem clean and well kept, with condoms and lube aplenty (not that many condoms are used). There is good video entertainment as well.

Responding to negative reviews with condescending retorts ain't it. The implication that Steamworks is dangerous because it's across the bay and near the train tracks is really silly. People complaining about dangerous neighborhoods dont deserve your attention anyway. All this time you spend responding to bad reviews with your story you don't even have anything on your website about your history, etc. Resist the temptation to reply.

Wow wow, this is one of those dingy places any gay man with some standards turn straight in 🙂 I do NOT recommend this one. It came up in a Google search for gay saunas, but clearly I should have read a bit better as there was no sauna in sight… and yes fair enough there was a one shower, hallelujah, but inside a disabled loo… and let’s not mention the clientele…No I mean it let’s not talk about them, it was too depressing

I went last Saturday afternoon. Had a great time. Great friendly crowd of guys (ages shapes etc). Place is clean with plenty of free lube and condoms. Staff is very welcoming to all. Fridays and Saturdays seem to be the best for me. There are a few regulars that do not make eye contact or allow you to touch them. Not sure why they are there. Just avoid them and you will have a great time.

I do not recommend. New location is far more difficult to get to if you have a car and not safe (right next to tenderloin). the limited operation hours suck, and the place doesn’t have as many amenities like their old location. Not worth the price when other bathhouses are the same and offer a lot more.

I really like the new location downtown. I think the location pulls in a lot more tourists because it’s located near all the hotels. It’s a easy trip for me from the Castro on the j train. It takes about 15min to get there. Would recommend attending on a Friday.

New location has (at least so far) no steam room, no sauna, no showers, and the admission price is higher that when they were in the Castro. Not sure what happened, but it’s definitely not ready for patrons yet.

They messed up so bad by moving to the tenderloin. I used to work a block away from that location a few years ago and I was mugged twice. No way am I ever going back to the most dangerous part of the city. Don’t waste your time and go to steamworks in Berkeley. I really want the best for them but putting customers in danger by moving to the tenderloin is beyond baffling. Sorry but I’m not risking my life.Edit: see that attitude from the owners response? Tells you all that you need to know. I’ll match that energy then. You didn’t have to pay for parking by the old eros location, lots of space near by but not anymore (you still don’t have to deal with that at steamworks). Less chance of car break in’s at steamworks, large venue, the neighborhood around steamworks is cleaner and not a homeless person in sight. If you’re outside of steamworks one can hear the Amtrak trains going by but you never see them, all the new safe development blocks the view. In fact there are family homes around the corner, unlike the tenderloin where Eros is. If they were good business people the Eros team could have negotiated a better location near the castro rather than the crime capital neighborhood of San Francisco.

Great place. Usually always have fun when I go.I read comments that Eros is empty later in the evening.Eros is an early crowd. Friday and Saturday Afternoon to early evening times are best. Other afternoons and early evening are also good.Nice crowd. Friendly staff.Age group varies. There are young as well as old that go. Thursdays seem to be more young ones.Eros is also Trans Friendly. Occasionally will see FTM Guys there. Everyone is respectful of Trans Men.I would definitely recommend giving it a try once no matter what age or body type

I was in my early twenties and Eros was my first bathhouse. I was nervous entering but had the most amazing and liberating experience! Since there are no rooms, you can meet and play with someone (or more) and anyone interested can watch the action. I realized the thrill of sharing my thrilling experience for others enjoyment. Everyone was respectful. The front desk clerk even came back and introduced himself. I rather enjoy this type of place instead of hiding in a room!

I present my test with 72 hours and they refer to let me in… And also the receptionist encourage me to get the vaccine and I believe that is very inappropriate…. I completely understand the safety protocol to prevent the spread of the virus but I’m completely sure that if you guys asking for something you guys have to respect the rules.

I wanted to give this place the benefit of the doubt but unfortunately I don’t think I’ll be returning in the current state. The layout is actually not bad but it’s pretty dated and the clientele is abysmal. I feel that a few things, like providing new towels that haven’t been bleached to death, will go a long way for this establishment and I do hope things pick up so they can make changes. The garden was cute and I appreciated the steam room. Anyways, up to you to check this place out but I will not be again.

I have only been here once and thought it was ok. The drinks are ok (cash only), but they need to do something about their AC (if they even have one) as it gets super hot in there. They have dance floor as well as booths, which makes it a great spot to go in a group and the location is good for venturing somewhere else or ending up here.

Extremely friendly, Steam room always working (unlike Stream works in Berkeley), dry sauna, outdoor patio—overall great atmosphere. Traffic can be slow at times but a great place to meet local city guys.

Thinking about it, it has awful business hours.... why open when the majority of people are at work? I noticed the owner mentioned the 30min before closing and compared themselves to a Bar. This is not bar, there is no alcohol. This place closes at 11. Not 12 AM, 11. So it pretty much dies off at 10-10:30.Could use a bit more mirrors and a business remodel that expresses, "Hey we are actually tying to make things better" So far its settled and I don't think things will get better and it might eventually get swallowed by SF's insane prices and the owner eventually selling off the space.

My visit was to have a massage but with the cash only policy, that makes Eros cumbersome and inconvenient. Maybe it's the massage piece of the business that is not long for this world, rather than the sexual exploits. I took my business right down the street and purchased a massage at a spa. The massage was superior. I like to be loyal to body workers and John, the massage therapist at Eros, rocks For the record, Mr. Owner, I was not seeking a private room but a relaxing massage. There's no need for me to visit other clubs because I may have found my new massage therapist today at the spa down the street. In an odd twist of fate, I may owe you a big thank you for sending there.
