    “Not worth it, go to a gay club and find a hookup there - this place is overpriced, I think.“

    Checkmate open

    “I confirm sauna still open. I have been there two times, during my stay in Wellington, ten days ago.“

  7. B Bruce
    Has Checkmate Re-Opened?

    “I will be in Wellington soon and was thinking of visiting Checkmate, however the website is no longer active and the Facebook page has no recent postings and will not allow any messages to be sent. I would be grateful if someone from Welly could let me know if it is still open and if not does Wellington have another venue? -Aussie Bruce“

    • J Jay
      Not my scene but...

      “I don’t think it actually closed - just the website has been down.“

  8. D Dan

    “The facility is a bit old and need to be renovated. The rooms are so dark, at a little bit light. BTW,it is totally like a Old Man party.“

  9. V V
    Website Link - Inappropriate!

    “The website link is hacked by virus and asking for monetary donation!“

    • T TGA Staff

      “Thanks for letting us know. We have passed info on to the owners. In the meantime, for the protection of users, we have removed the link.“
