Bodyworks is a club with a long history in Dunedin serving the interests of genetic males looking to explore their homoerotic desires. The venue was renamed Space4u in 2012 with a view to broadening its appeal and social usefulness, Bodyworks has continued to operate as a club within this venue but the arrival of the COVID - 19 pandemic in 2020 is forcing change upon us. The social and relaxation space will have to be limited to private to hire and committed membership

When possible the venue management is keen to support
the community aspirations of many other special interest groups - for those of you who want a Gay Community space in Dunedin, a lesbian space, an arts, or science fiction space it may be possible to accommodate it here - Mondays & some other times can be available if requested.

Support Bodyworks, support Space4u, support community - Strength, security and good emotional health are gained through cooperation and mutual support, not isolation.

Footwear Note: bring your own if desired, soft shoes, flat soles only
STILETTO & OTHER HIGH HEELED SHOES ARE NOT PERMITTED (they cause floor damage and a noise nuisance to tenants below us)

Enlightenment values

Advice to customers
Promoting community cooperation
  Business sale proposal  

Above: options for relocation might include a cooperative venture shared between several investors who are more interested in the lifestyle (spa, sauna, gym, community space) than profit. As it does now, the business certainly needs to accommodate more than one population group and should not be restricted to sexual interests.


If the venue is permitted to re-open after the COVID-19 lockdown.....

Below Promotional poster for proposed gay community social evenings. Space4u offers Dunedin gay men & lesbians this social opportunity but these events can only be staged if sufficient individuals register their interest at reception. Monday nights present the easiest times but another afternoon or evening might be arranged.
These social events can do what the internet cannot: help you to cultivate your real world social skills and develop useful long term friendships and alliances.
A strong community won us the freedoms we enjoy today and we need a strong community to maintain those freedoms.
