  • Jason_Indy, there is free parkingn on Belmont, just east of halsted, on the street, i usually find a spot there if i circle a few times, but best spot if u do not mind paying a lot is the parking garage mentioned by bigben.

    Commented on 6/7/2009 1:18:41 AM

  • Yeah, there is a credit card reader and an automatic door.

    Commented on 6/5/2009 10:56:48 AM

  • Jason_indy : I am not from the area either, but am wondering if it would be easier to park at another location that is close to another Red line station? Transit is the way I am planning to get there since I am staying near Grant Park. Check out the route and see if there is anyplace that is convenient to the direction that you are coming from where there is free parking.

    Commented on 6/3/2009 10:48:35 AM

  • Thx. I remember seeing that, but was afraid it wasn't open all night?

    Is it 24 hour checkout then?

    Commented on 6/3/2009 9:11:30 AM

  • Jason, there is an indoor pay lot on the west side of the street in like the next building to the south of Steamworks. That is where I always park just because I do not want to hassle with finding a spot.

    Commented on 6/3/2009 2:56:10 AM

  • I'm going to be there next week--evening of June 11.

    Maybe it's best to wait until 9 pm and find a place on the street? I did that once and got lucky, ending up in the block right in front of it. I dunno.

    I don't remember the train being close by...

    Commented on 6/3/2009 1:45:04 AM

  • So, I have a question about the Thursday night "lights out" parties. How dark is dark? I mean are all the lights except the exit signs off? Does a crowd materialize for this? Thanks!

    Commented on 6/2/2009 12:25:45 PM

  • Can someone answer my question about best place to park? Especially if you're arriving before 9 PM and departing say after mid-night??

    (Sorry to be dense, but I'm not from Chicago...)

    Commented on 6/1/2009 8:31:48 AM

  • Does Steamworks attract a lunch time or after work crowd? If so are certain days better than others?

    Commented on 5/31/2009 9:21:15 AM

  • I've been to Steam Works a few times over the years. Always a good time.

    My question is, where are you supposed to park? Street parking isn't free until after 9 pm, the free parking lot up a block at the shopping center closes early like 10 pm or something, street parking everywhere requires a neighborhood sticker, etc. Once I parked several blocks away at the hospital garage but same problem, trying to get out of it late at night.

    Please...locals...spill it. Where's the best place for parking for us out of towners that don't know?

    Commented on 5/28/2009 8:12:50 AM

  • With IML and also Bear Pride in town it should be a little more active here. How about for daddy's and bears ? Tomorrow (friday) late morning into afternoon - come out and play daddy's/bears.

  • Spent last Fri late night and this afternoon (Wed)- both times just brimming with friendly men. What a great facility, nice staff and did I say friendly men? all ages, so little attitude, something for everyone. Look fwd to visiting Chicago again.

    Commented on 5/7/2009 3:09:26 AM

  • Steamworks is a great facility; but, with several shower areas, plentiful hot water and soap, not to mention complimentary mouthwash, why do so many guys have such poor hygiene? Also, why is "no" perceived as "just be persistent and you'll eventually wear me down into submission"? just asking...

    Commented on 5/6/2009 8:10:00 AM

  • Yes there are slings here, and they're FUN!
    I'm going back Thursday, to Lights out event! Should be great fun, but what is the crowd like on Thursday nights? I've only been here Friday and Saturday! Is it also young and fit? Or are they fat and old?

  • I visit Chicago on business staying usually a month or more downtown. Never been to Steamworks but would be willing to try. However, I would prefer meeting somebody there prearranged so they can show me the ropes, so to say! I was told there is a bondage room to play. Can anyone give me some details on that? Also, would like to hook up with someone who is into bondage play so maybe we can share that room. All replies welcome.

    Commented on 4/2/2009 6:49:03 AM

  • It was totally fun! So much fun, I loved swimming in the boiling water, haha! The Saunas were too hot for me, could barely breathe, but the 2nd and 3rd floors were so cruisy!
    I want to go to a Light's Out Party as well, but it was already dark on friday night, that I don't understand how much dimmer it can get, like, completely DARK? WOW!

  • went to bear bath and beyond event yesterday 3pm-5pm. Very busy and very active. Rooms were all sold out so I just got a locker and walked around in a towel and a camouflage ball cap. Met some hot guys and most everyone was there to play and not just stand and parade around which was a nice change. The event has become very popular I guess Ill have to go earlier to get a room next month. Hope to see some of you there. If you have questions feel free to ask me Jim

  • Fellas, coming down to Chi-town in a couple of weeks, would love to have some fun with some hot studs. I am a bi guy from Milwaukee and have never been to Steamworks before. Would love to get some e-mail from other hot bi guys who might be up for some play on Feb. 11th.

    Commented on 2/1/2009 3:16:04 AM

  • Another bi married guy here. I went once last year. Check-in at the front window is simple. You must show your ID but I wouldn�t worry about that. It�s a pretty discreet place. The collect your valuables: wallet, watch, rings, etc. and put them in a safe. You pay for a room or whatever you want. I got a standard room with bed/TV. In the room, there�s a locker under the bed for your clothes. You get a towel to wear around you, but it barely fit around me�it�s made for the twink set!

    You will have a key on an elastic band to wear around your arm that locks your room door and locker.

    I didn�t have as much fun as I thought I would. I went on a Saturday night and I think I�m not what that crowd was looking for. YMMV

  • Tomas: just noticed you'll be near O'Hare - usually the best way to get to the Red Line from where you'll be on the Blue Line is to go all the way downtown on the Blue Line, switch at Jackson to the Red Line, then head north. Google maps may suggest a different route, but I think heading into the Loop then back up north is easier.
