Hercules Club was a gay sauna situated at 4 Jalan Klapa, Singapore 19931. Its email address was herculesclub.com.sg, telephone number +65 6296-1018 and mobile/SMS number +65 9017-6367. It was domiciled in a 3-storey conservation shophouse between North Bridge Road and Victoria Street, and between Bugis MRT station and Lavender MRT station. There were hotels nearby which was convenient for tourists who wanted to stay near the club.
It was run by the former Diamond Health Centre management and advertised itself as a place "where lovers of bodies gather and dreams come true." When it first opened, Hercules was the newest men's club in town "where great hospitality and friendly comfortable atmosphere make it the hub for all men to rest, relax, destress and finally enjoy the total wellness of gathering together for social networking."
No membership was required.
- Free for those aged 18 to 25 years. (This amazing offer helped it attract a new group of young customers.)
- $15 for patrons from 26 to 35 years of age. If they pay for 1 entry, they get a free entry for the next visit but this was valid anytime from Monday to Thursday only.
- $15 for those 36 years of age and above. There was a "Buddy 1-for-1" offer for this age group, that is entry for 2 people for the price of 1.
It advertised a 6-entry pass for $72, giving patrons "unlimited pleasure for the next 3 months".
Three floors of facilities included a hot jacuzzi for full water enjoyment which was big enough to accommodate 10 persons, a steam room for wellness and relaxation, a shower area for refreshing cleanliness and comfort, a mini-cinema-style TV lounge for comfortable viewing, individual cabins for total privacy, a dark maze, large play rooms for mass enjoyment, a small reading lounge and Internet area with 2 terminals for rest, chit-chatting and social networking, lockers for personal security and safety, a designated smoking area for smoking comfort, a food and beverage corner for in-between breaks
Hercules organised theme nights such as chubs and chasers, skin night, and young night. Its clientele was mostly Chinese locals, but everyone was welcome at this friendly, comfortable neighborhood sauna. Skin nights which started after 6pm on Tuesdays were popular with daddies and sons, chubs, cubs, bears and muscular men. One could expect a lot of senior people there. During the weekends from Friday to Sunday, there was a mixed crowd who were keen to use the steam room and jacuzzi.
