The Rec Room is a popular gay sauna in Johannesburg. There’s a fully licensed bar and regular themed events, such as leather parties and other fetish nights.

You can also cruise your way around the facilities and see what’s on offer. There’s even a video lounge for smokers.

You can also make the use of the private cabins.

Like most saunas, The Rec Room can be quiet some of the time. It does often get busy, though.

  1. J James
    Comparatively speaking

    “Facilities are adequate.
    Staff could be friendlier.

    Music is too LOUD.
    People in Pretoria can hear it!!“

  2. E Enock
    As good as it gets

    “Nice facilities with a beautiful bar. A bit hard to find, located far from downtown in the sprawling capital of the world. You'll surely will need to call a cab or similiar to get out, unless you're driving.“
