Please take note that the lockers provided do not have locks. You'll have to bring one along or buy a new one from Rec Room (and keep it).

Sunday evenings are great at Rec Room!

The largest bathhouse in Johannesburg and the oldest gay establishment in the city. Full bar, open seven days a week. Facilities include indoor and outdoor jacuzzis, steambath, sauna, private cubicles, showers, lockers, private lounge, mazes, darkrooms, complementary towels, secure parking. Centrally situated, close to the main highways.

Great place to meet hot guys. Weekdays are busy, but the best time is to visit during weekends, especially Sunday evenings when the place is packed. Good facilities, friendly staff and laid-back vibe. Management is very anti-drugs, so beware! All in all, a great place.

I have traveled all over the world and found this to be the cleanest bathhouse I’ve ever been to! They give you a large towel and beach sandals when you arrive. They have a full bar, sauna, steamroom, inside and outside Jacuzzi, dark rooms, private rooms, maze and much more. The guys are absolutely fine, as most South African gay men are!
