I have been going to Checkmate for almost 20 years and must say it is by far the best on premise swing club in NYC. Of course its always random and depends on the crowd but even on a “bad” night, Checkmate is far better than most any vanilla night out in the city and ranks as one of the better clubs in the country and certainly the best in the north east…some of the women I have had sex with at Checkmate were the best experiences I have had sexually in this lifestyle. Highly recommended! Mr. B!

My wife and I have been to Checkmate about a dozen times. It is a couples-only club.
All the visits were good. Some great.
We’ve tried one other place, Bowery Bliss, but were very disappointed. Everybody was sitting around talking. Few sexy people. Felt like we were at a Tupperwar party. We left at midnight for Checkmate. An expensive night. (Checkmate is generally $90-140, depending on the event).
The Checkmate crowd is 30-50. Everyone is well dressed. Probably about 20% were what one would consider “hot.” (And no one has ever been gross.)
The main room is where the bar is (BYOB) and where everybody hangs out until about 12-12.30. Decor is ’70’s kitsch. There’s conversation. And lots of touching. Some women are dressed in very revealing outfits. The DJ is good and the bartender is a lot of fun. And Monica, the hostess/owner, is a riot.
One moves from there to the changing room which is out in the open. Lockers are available and they have someone there monitoring them, so no need to worry. Everyone just undresses while others watch. Hot. There are 2 bathrooms and a shower off of the changing area.
Then you go into the “back” where there are 3 small rooms and one large room. Couples usually wander back and look into the rooms several times and eventually decide and go in and “stake out” a space on one of the beds.
Generally there’s lots of oral sex at the outset where you’re right next to another couple doing the same thing. Most couples will start touching the couple next to them, especially girl-girl. Sometimes it moves to exchanging oral sex. The only full swapping we’ve been aware of was sets of couples who come together (there was a set of 6 people next to us swapping back and forth the last time we were there.)
It’s a visual scene where you’re fucking while watching other do the same. If you want a multiple full-swap experience, then it’s probably not your place.
And, as it gets later, there are people walking around naked out in the main room to get drinks, etc.
There is no drama. Everyone has always been very classy and thoughtful.
We plan on going back 6-8 times a year.

We’ve been to Checkmate a number of times and without question, Checkmate is our favorite club. We’ve been to most of the other swing clubs in NYC and Checkmate has all that we are looking for – we’ve never had a bad experience there. First, Monica and the rest of her team are awesome. So nice and friendly and they make the experience fun and classy every time. They care about their customers and every event they host.
The club itself is great. You have REAL lockers in a separate and spacious area. Not little cubes that barely fit a pair of shoes, but tall vertical lockers that fit two people’s clothes. And they have showers. It may sound minor, but things like this actually matter. Also … spacious and nice open play areas as well as several smaller rooms for more intimate encounters. The main bar and dance floor/socializing area is spacious and set up well and provides a great space to get to meet the other couples there.
The other thing we really like … The other members are really friendly and social. Our experience at other clubs is that people are often shy and/or not friendly. It’s a relaxed vibe and the couples at Checkmate are comfortable with themselves and the others there. Checkmate’s velvet rope policy is good too. The members are more on the attractive and in shape side than not – always a plus.
Checkmate is just a few notches above the rest, in our opinion. If you haven’t been to Checkmate, check out their website and apply for membership – you won’t regret it.

Well, I understand many of the comments, but it was exactly what we wanted for a first time playing. Why? because it was filled with good to very good looking people. They were all established and yes it comes off arrogant but with an outgoing person unafraid to start a conversation you’ll find all very approachable and friendly. Our first time there the crowd just seemed to allow us to take part, but our second visit was far more like friends. What I noticed is most are smart and interesting. I was shocked because I expected people to be seedy. No so. In fact the reverse. My wife wanted to try it once and was okay with the second visit, but now she wants once a month. So, I know we’re such newbies to this but I have to give it 8 out of 10.

this was our first visit to checkmates and only have great things to say about it. very sexy crowd and great play area. we will def go again, the only downside is that the price is kinda high. they charged us 140

Reading the comments here can be misleading. Checkmates aims at attracting a very nice crowd. International, european and trendy New Yorkers. Surely the door is not opened to any out of towner looking to take a glimpse to the Manhattan nights.
We go once in a while at checkmate, we are far from being regulars but are always warmly welcomed. Bartender are always very sexy (boys or girls) and give the name of any swinger club where you can speak music with the DJ while watching beautiful people partying?
The only downside we ww find is sometime the AC is a bit too cold…maybe a way to get you doing warming exrcices!
If you want to spend a good night, with sexy and young people, stop looking, you found!

We can not understand why anyone would have recommended this place to us. It was just play awful. Felt like taking back the tip we gave to the concierge that suggested it.
Staff was down right abusive and the guests all posers. The advertized price was a lie…they banged us out for $150.
A total waste of time!

Tried this club last week with my husband while in town and we were very disappointed. The crowd is very clicky filled with very arrogant people. There were about 14 couples when we arrived and maybe another 7 that wondered in over the next two hours. We wouldn’t have minded if at least they had something to be arrogant about. While not a bad looking crowd they were far from the type that should be so full of themselves attitudes.
And the staff was as arrogant as the guests in that you should feel blessed we let you in type of way. You always hear of a NYC attitude, well this was the ONLY place we truly experienced it during our visit last week.
If you are visiting NYC like we were pick another place, unless you think being abused and ripped off is fun.
Will give it a few points for ambiance and it was clean
