Reopening Changes for Chicago Members
  • Fully Vaccinated Only. Businesses are responsible for verifying that patrons are fully vaccinated. Fully vaccinated is at least 14 days from your second shot of the two-shot vaccines or 14 days from your one-shot vaccine. Proof of valid full vaccination must be presented and verified to get a Steamworks membership and enter the facility. Acceptable methods of proving fully vaccinated status to gain entry are: Showing your completed Vaccination Card, a photo/photocopy and/or electronic proof of your vaccination records.  Your vaccination record must match your state or government issued ID name and date of birth.  This protocol will also allow all patrons to enjoy our facilities with the least number of Covid-19 restrictions

  • Memberships. Steamworks is extending a free three-month regular membership to all patrons during the first month of our reopen period.  Your fully vaccinated status must be presented and verified prior to receiving a membership to comply with city and state vaccinated entry guidelines.  We understand that some of our returning members had valid six month regular and V.I.P. memberships when we were forced to close.  Our management team members will work with you to take care of that.  For now, please accept our three-month membership gift and take the General Manager’s business card to email them privately to resolve any membership issues.

  • Hours of operation. Steamworks Chicago is open 24/7 365 days a year. The team you love and remember are ready to serve you again.  We will return to seven days a week in time as we hire and train new team members. 

  • Rental Hours. All room and locker rentals will be limited to a maximum 6 hours with no renewals.

  • Bag Checks. Due to our limited team at reopening we need to make some changes to speed up the check-in process for everyone, therefore we are not permitting bags at this time.  Reducing the need for bag checks will allow us to properly verify all patrons fully vaccinated status to get a Steamworks membership protocol.  learn more.

We have a strict Zero Tolerance Policy for possession and use of alcohol or drugs or any other illegal activity. Our basic bathhouse rule: If it’s illegal outside of Steamworks, it’s illegal inside of Steamworks.
