What are your hours?

We are currently open Sun – Thurs 11 am – 12 am, Fri & Sat 11 am – 2 am.

Check-ins are permitted up to 1 hour before closing.

In other words, we’re here for you anytime you feel the need, 365 days a year.

Should I bring my own towel and soap?
We provide you with a courtesy towel and exchange at the check-in desk (S-XL avail), and our shower areas are well-equipped with soap dispensers. We DO encourage you to bring your own flip-slops/sandals for the wet area, for the comfort & safety of yourself & other guests.
What kind of payment methods do you accept?

We accept CASH only. An ATM is available at check-in to obtain Cash. Please do this PRIOR to approaching the Attendant for Check-In. We do not accept credit or debit cards.

Do you have lockers for my valuables?

Yes. We have many stand-alone lockers and each private room has a locker as well. We strongly suggest you place all valuables, wallets, etc. in the locker so your items are always safe and secure.

Do you have condoms and lube available?

You will be provided with a complimentary condom on your initial entry. If you require additional condoms, please ask the Attendant at the Lounge counter. If you require lube, we have a great selection at the counter!

If I get thirsty or hungry, what are my options?
We offer a reasonable selection of cold and hot beverages as well as a variety of quick meal and snack items, both hot and cold. If you prefer, ask your Attendant for “order in” alternatives.
What kind of people use this place?

Whatever your tastes or preferences are, we’re sure you’ll see someone that fits the bill.

We see Bisexual, Gay, Lesbian, and Straight single and married men and women of all ages 18+ and all body types and ethnicities. We offer an inclusive environment.

Every day except for Friday is co-ed. Fridays are men only.

What kind of activities go on there?
Our business does offer an environment for “hooking up”. So sexual activity does take place and you must be aware that you may see this happening in rooms or in some of the public areas.

The Supreme Court of Canada has ruled this legal as long as all persons entering the premise are aware of it. This is similar to a “Sex Club”.

Remember, per Alberta Health regulations, there is NO sexual activity permitted in the Hot Tub, and the area is monitored for your safety & security.

Are prostitutes allowed?
Communication for the purpose of prostitution is a Federal Offense under the Criminal Code of Canada. Therefore we do NOT tolerate Prostitution in any form or manner anywhere on our premises.

If you are approached by someone requesting money for any sexual act, please report this to the Attendant immediately. Anyone caught engaging in prostitution will be asked to leave and barred from re-entry.

Do you have alcohol available?

Our liquor licensing regulations DO NOT permit alcohol service. Additionally, we do not tolerate open use of any alcoholic beverage, and the use of recreational drugs of any kind is strictly prohibited. Individuals caught using or distributing drugs anywhere on the premises will be ejected immediately and barred from re-entry.

So if I want to hook up with someone, how do I go about doing it?
Generally, guests walk around the bathhouse, their towels serving to conceal and reveal. As they pass each other in the dimly lit hallways, they often touch each other, intentionally or otherwise.

Unwanted touches are gently and politely “brushed off,” while welcomed touches are indulged with a smile, sustained eye contact, or even a response in-kind.

A backwards glance to take a second, departing look, may be just that: a departing look. But a backwards glance with a quick, forward-moving head gesture probably means, “Come hither.”

In general, while traversing the passageways and communal rooms of the bathhouse, guests will ignore the people who do not interest them and invite, via body language, the people who do.

“I am a complete newbie and went for my first time last Saturday night. I had a completely amazing, sexy hot time. I was very comfortable. Super chill people. My first time being nude in front of total strangers was no problem at all. It was positive all around, a wonderful night, and I'm excited to return very soon. 👍❤️”


“Been a client for about 5 years. Great atmosphere. Cool patrons. Awesome staff. Will continue coming / cumming.”


“SteamWorks is where all the fun happens. Let it cum, let it cum, let it cum... ❤️❤️❤️❄️❄️❄️”


“Been a client since 2015, when Monday was the only co-ed night. Definitely seen lots of improvement in the facility, such as hot tub, fuck alley, nicer and wider lounge area, better sauna and much more!”


“It has a great spa atmosphere with super friendly people, great location with lots of upscale restaurants & lounges close by. Lots of available parking on site and off.”


“Great place! It's an excellent place to maybe step outside your boundaries and try some things you may not feel comfortable doing anywhere else. I have had a lot of fun at SW over the years and hope for many more. ”


“Great atmosphere to have fun. The feeling of being free is more than one can ask for. Let SW unleash your inner desire to be who you are and find what you are looking for. Keep Cumming!”


“I have visited SteamWorks off and on, for 7 years. As a person who suffers from both body dysmorphia and previous sexual identity confusion, SteamWorks is one of the only places I feel comfortable with me.”


“At SteamWorks, I’ve had the opportunity to have some group play experiences I never thought possible.”


“SteamWorks has given me a new lease on life! Lol”


“While it took me a few visits to get truly comfortable with the layout, it took significantly less time to get comfortable with the other patrons! SW is the light of my week!”


“Steamworks is an experience for open-minded individuals.  It will also open your mind even more than it already is. It adds some spice to our lives.”
