Grab a towel and release your tensions
You know a city has come of age when it boasts at least one bathhouse or sex club. Club Jacksonville is a friendly and clean bathhouse. It features whirlpool, steam room, and heated indoor pool as well as complete gym facilities, along with a TV lounge and private sun deck. Tuesdays are especially popular. A recent refurbishment (new carpets, paint) has given the place renewed energy.

      Fading Star with Ridiculous Rules...
      I've been to bath houses all over the eastern U.S. This one is a moderate size and has a great indoor pool (thus can be used regardless of weather). Hot tub is somewhat small, but hot and functional as is the steam room. Wet area was fairly clean...all good points I found. HOWEVER. .. The no-nudity rules in common, "public" areas is absolutely absurd! They only permit nudity in the wet area and on the sun deck. You must wear something in the club hallways, locker area, etc. check in, remove your clothes and wrap a towel around your waist to walk to sun deck. Take off the towel and get some sun. Put the towel on to walk back inside and go down to the pool. Take off the towel to swim, steam, hot tub. Put it back on to leave wet area. Ridiculous! Why? The crowd is mixed ages and types...a fair mix of guys on a weekday afternoon, which was surprising and nice. Rooms are very minimalist, but whole place is fairly clean and comfortable. Obviously an older building and facilities, several closed areas, raggedy carpets, chipped paint, poor lighting, etc. This can be interpreted as character though. For the cost (inexpensive compared to other places), this place is o.k. Annoying rules though and no place to just sit nude and relax or socialize except the sun deck...that's that ought when it's raining and the indoor pool draws you in, but then is the only place to be nude! I wouldn't do much to renovate the place, it's kitschy and pleasingly old-school (just continue to keep it clean), but everyone can see naked bodies in certain areas, why require cover-up in other areas?

      middle of a weekday provided just what I needed!
      I was visiting from up North this past summer and got there in the middle of a weekday and was surprised by the fun I was able to have. Although the rules might seem stiff, the staff was cool and I was able to get the attention I needed in the pool, the steamroom and a little corner upstairs. I found loads of fun. :)

      Locker room in a gym experience
      This bath house looked like it would have been awesome in its hey day in the 80s. That's the cool part is if you'd like to see how a top cheesy sex club bath probably looked like. When it opened this place was awesome and was a resort quality. They are doing a 75% good job at keeping up the place. Even though it says the replaced the carpets, they are dirty and need to be replaced again. The pool, steam room, sauna, and showers were all in one main area and I could see where this could be a fun area when it's filled with bodies. Steam room worked super well, but had weird markings on the ceiling. Upstairs is a bunch of rooms, there is no maze. No place to take your dude to have fun with. The gym is low on equipment. The staff was super friendly. When I was there also was only a few young dudes but NO old dudes. That was a cool surprise. My review is 50/50... Not much to do except swim or steam... Place was trying to stay clean, but did not look professionally clean... If you want to hook up you HAVE to get a room. This place definitely is a spa where you meet guys to TALK with and get their number Later. Think of it as the locker room in a gym experience.

      Old and Moldy
      This is a very dirty, moldy but reputable bath house. No sexual behavior allowed in common areas, no smoking except on the sun deck and no nudity in common areas. The old gymnasium needs cleaning and updated. The men were of different ages equally divided between 20's, 30's and older. The service at front door was deceit and the people were very friendly.This is my last visit. (updated from last year.)

      It's just OK
      I drove up there from Orlando just for something different to do. It could be a cool place, the upstairs maze of rooms could be a lot of fun, if there was more people there. The lighting is too bright all over the club. The steam room smells moldy--it's huge and too bright. There were 2 hot guys when I got there--a lean muscular blonde guy in his late 30's to early 40's, and a young 20's naturally thick cute masc guy with a tattoo--looked like he might have been in the Navy. I had both of them within an hour, and went home.

      first timer had fun
      I went for the first time last night since nothing was really happening in the clubs. Had fun. There wasn't a lot of people, but still managed to find some to talk and swim with. Gym was outdated.. But no one really goes there. I'll definitely go again. The swim alone was fun.

      I'd go back in a second
      Back in November, I went here and this was my first experience with a bath house. I had a great time. While it is true that there are a lot of older men, the young hotties more than made up for it and besides some of the older men really didnt look all that bad. None of them were too persistent. If I made it obvious I wasnt interested, they left me alone. I will admit the place is very dated but it's reasonably clean. I thought it was funny that they had workout equipment because I never saw anyone using it

      It doesn't matter if its early on a weekday or late on a Friday night, the selection of guys at this place is the absoluate worst! I can't believe that in the largest city in Florida, the only bathhouse never has more than about 7-8 guys. You may find one in his 20s, one in his 30s/40s, and the rest are in their 50s and 60s. I tried going at different times but it didn't make a difference. The place is moderaly clean.

      Get over the age thing!
      It doesn't matter which bathhouse you go to, there will always be older men there. And this place is clean; I don't know of any bathhouse that is squeaky clean. The place is a gem for those living in and around Jacksonville. The sun deck alone is worth the price of admission. It has a terrific indoor pool, a nice jacuzzi, a HOT steam room and enough gym equipment. No porn in TV room (Jacksonville law?). If the younger generation would learn to co-exist with their elder counterparts everyone can end up having a good time. I was visiting for a b-ball tournament and went to Club Jacksonville two days in a row (didn't find much else to do) and had a terrific time. All my needs were met. The music was like stepping into a time machine (70s/80s) but a very nice change from the usual thumpa thumpa (which I like as well having once been a club DJ). Don't know if the music changes at night. And there were some younger hotties in there and all seemed to be having a good time. I recommend this place (and others around the country/world like it). Just be aware that the bathhouse culture includes men of all ages. Make a great time for yourself. Make use of the sun deck and other amenities. Places like this are few and far between. Close your eyes and use your imagination if you have to. Play safe. Peace.

      Still outdated
      Although I've been going since 2009, it still hasn't gotten any better. However, there's really no other place to hang out (expect for bars) in this boring city of red neck JAX. The two guys running the place are RUDE. If you can, drive 2 hrs to Orlando and check out a REAL club.
