Although Dallas used to be home to two gay bathhouses and spas—Club Dallas and Midtowne Spa—Midtowne Spa closed in March of 2017 leaving Club Dallas as the only destination for gay and bisexual men looking for high-quality, clean fun in the Dallas-Fort Worth area in Texas.
Club Dallas is an impressive place with the somewhat upscale vibe that you might expect in a city like Dallas, which has some of the swankiest gay nightclubs and bars in the country. Rates are in line with other gay spas and bathhouses, so you will not break the bank if you visit this facility. It is open 24 hours a day. Members are welcome to stay for up to eight hours per visit (six hours on weekends). This is a male-only facility.

Club Dallas is a clean, multi-floor facility offering everything from a nice-sized gym with a full range of modern equipment, locker rooms, steam room, sauna, whirlpool tub large enough to accommodate several people, a cafe, large, heated outdoor pool and sundeck, and a pool table. Guests can also use the facility's free Wi-Fi.
Along with its state-of-the-art facilities, Club Dallas also offers free safe sex information and condoms to both members and non-members as well as provides free testing for sexually transmitted diseases and HIV by the Dallas AIDS Testing Resource Center every Tuesday evening from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m.
This facility is part of the well-known "Club" adult collection of gay bathhouses with other locations in Houston, Miami, St. Louis, Indianapolis, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, and Columbus, so you know you can expect high-quality service and a safe, accepting environment for play, exploration, and even working out.
