Q. Dear Steam Guy, DO YOU HAVE TO BE A MEMBER?
A. Yes. Steam Portland is a private club for men only and a membership is required. Currently during the COVID pandemic, only short term memberships are provided until we are confident that the city and state will no longer apply restrictions to locations like ours and we can guarantee those long term memberships. Short term memberships are included in the pricing on the rates page.
Q. Dear Stam Guy, DO I HAVE TO BE VACCINATED? A. Yes. At this time we are only allowing fully vaccinated members into the club. Until the City and State lower the risk level, we believe this is the safest way to open sooner than later. We are sorry for those not vaccinated yet, but now that vaccination appointments are becoming easier to get, we will soon be back to a fully normal operation. You will be required to have both (2) Pfizer or Moderna doses or 1 Johnson & Johnson dose. You will need to show your original vaccine card on your first return visit, you will not need to bring it each visit after. Your final vaccination must be 2 weeks prior to entry on your first return visit. Members who have previously had COVID are not an accepted coverage for entry at this time. Masks are not required in the club since all members and staff are fully vaccinated.
ACCEPTABLE FORMS OF PROOF OF VACCINATION: ACTUAL CDC CARD (NO PHOTOCOPIES) ACTUAL PHOTO ON YOUR PHONE MyCHART TYPE APP - SHOWING NAME BIRTHDAY AND VACCINATION DATES NOT ACCEPTED: SHRUNKEN LAMINATED COPIES (like from FedEx/Kinkos etc) PHOTOCOPIES NY OR CALIFORNIA VACCINE PASSPORT - we do not have access to these databases
NO ACCEPTIONS TO THE VERIFICATION TYPES FOR ENTRY WILL BE ALLOWED
Q. Dear Steam Guy, DO I HAVE TO HAVE A BOOSTER SHOT?
A. Yes, if... its been over 6 months since your first 2 Pfizer or Moderna Shots, or 6 months since your 1 Janssen shot. If your initial shots are still within 6 months you will not need a boost until you hit 6 months.
Q. Dear Steam Guy, WILL YOU BE LIFTING THE VACCINE PROOF REQUIREMNTS?
A. Yes, starting August 15th we will be allowing members that are not vaccinated entry into the club, but you will not get the discounted prices. If you have your first set of shots but not your booster, you will be allowed in, but again you will not get the discounted prices. Those that are fully vaccinated and boosted will get our normal discounted price. Q. Dear Steam Guy, WHERE DO YOU PARK WHILE AT STEAM PORTLAND?

Q. Dear Steam Guy, WHAT ARE MY LIMITS IN THE HOT TUB? A. Steam Portland takes great pride in the ability to supply its members with a clean, fresh hot tub. We always score highest marks with Multnomah County Health department. With that being said, we ask
all members to keep all activity outside of the hot tub area. Meaning if your doing something that risks "adding" anything to our lovely hot tub, DONT DO IT! You will be asked to stop.
Q. Dear Steam Guy, I AM AN OLDER MAN AND NOT IN THE BEST OF SHAPE. I ENJOY GOING TO THE BATHS BUT I HAVE BEEN TREATED RUDELY BY STAFF AND MEMBERS IN CLUBS IN OTHER CITIES. WOULD I BE COMFORTABLE AT STEAM PORTLAND?
A. Our staff will treat all members with dignity and respect. Our motto is: Cleanliness, Friendliness & Fun! A lot will depend on your attitude and how you treat others as well. If you approach someone and there is no interest, its best to move on and find someone who is interested. Those young "hotties' are usually interested in each other, but you never know who might want a Daddy Bear! There is always someone for everyone!
Q. Dear Steam Guy, WHAT IS THE SMOKING POLICY IN THE CLUB?
A. Smoking is only allowed on our outdoor sun deck in the specific smoking area. it is our only designated smoking section, so enjoy some fresh air while you puff. E-Cigs are also not allowed inside the club at anytime. You do not have to leave to smoke like many other clubs.
Q. Dear Steam Guy, WHAT IS THE CANNABIS POLICY IN THE CLUB?
A. While Oregon has passed the new laws, effective July 1, 2015 for transporting and growing, and October 1, 2015 for personal purchase, it is still not allowed to be consummed in public places, including Private Clubs, per the Clean Air Act regulations. Because of this all smoking is to be done on the sun deck only in the specific smoking area, there is absolutely no smoking inside the club.
Q. Dear Steam Guy, IS STEAM PORTLAND WHEEL CHAIR ACCESSIBLE? A. Yes, Steam Portland has wheel chair accessible rooms and lockers on the main floor. The restrooms, showers and steam room are also wheel chair accessible, but the hot tub area is limited to your personal ability.
Q. Dear Steam Guy, I AM A FEMALE AND WOULD LIKE TO VISIT YOUR CLUB, CAN I ENTER?
A. Unfortunately no, Steam Portland is a Private Men's Only club and all members must be male, or by all definitions under state law identify as male and have "M" or Male on your legal ID.
Q. Dear Steam Guy, ARE TRANSGENDER GUYS WELCOME?
A. Yes, Steam Portland welcomes Trans guys, either MTF (as long as you are still legally male on your ID), or FTM (as long as you legally now identify as male on your ID). Any ID representing F or female will not be allowed in as we are a Private Men's Only club.
Q. Dear Steam Guy, I have the new Oregon ID with X in the gender identification area. Can I still come in? A. Unfortunately, because we are a private mens only club, we cannot accept gender X. Gender X is too general and does not specify a gender which as a private club we must adhere to and follow. Only ID's or passports with an M or Male are accepted.
