All Public Events Cancelled

At this time, all public events at SF Catalyst are canceled for the month of May, 2020.

The space is still available for private rentals; write to [email protected] for information.

As you know, SF Catalyst is a community-run educational and social space, operated by the San Francisco Bay Area Leather Alliance. For over three years, SF Catalyst has provided a social and educational space to the SF bay area kink community. Now, SF Catalyst has the rare opportunity to expand to the rest of the property located behind the existing play space.

This would allow true wheelchair-accessible access to the main space, expand maximum capacity, create additional event space, and provide a secure outdoor area which includes limited parking. SF Catalyst envisions being able to provide the community with options to hold two events simultaneously and to provide meeting space for more smaller groups than we can currently accommodate. We will also be able to host cigar socials and other outdoor community activities.

As an entirely volunteer-run venue operating as part of the non-profit SF Bay Area Leather Alliance, Catalyst will need the community’s support to make it happen. A special one-time fund-raising appeal is being planned. (Watch this space for details.)

But meanwhile, you can help by making a monthly donation to our Patreon at If you are already a Patron, consider increasing your patronage level. Perks for Patreon donors can include VIP access to monthly content, an "I proudly support SF Catalyst" pin, a handsome SF Catalyst water bottle, and discounted or free access to parties and events.

And of course, you can also offer to volunteer, or even join our Operations Group. Once we reopen for events, we will need your help and support more than ever!
