Laura's Spanking Corner

SM Clubs - SF Bay Area

The clubs listed here are San Francisco-area commercial establishments that provide an environment for spanking and S/M play. Most of the items on this list were contributed by my friend Searcher.  Clubs outside the Bay Area are listed on a separate page.

A nice session house and play space in the Bernal Heights district of San Francisco, a few miles south of downtown.  I was a big fan of the old Castlebar before Damion lost her lease, and I'm glad that she has found a new building, and in a nicer neighborhood no less.  I haven't been to the new facility yet, but I'm told that it's very nice.   Castlebar offers professional sessions with a number of professional dominants, submissives, and switches, as well as private room rentals and rental of the entire facility for parties.


A comfortable, homey private club and play space, featuring educational programs and play parties every week. Private lessons and "Bed & Bondage" also available. You must contact Elizabeth to make a reservation. This place is especially accepting of newcomers to the community. It's also a good place to meet people.

A bar featuring a large dance floor, loud Industrial music, attractive young people in fetish attire, and a crowded, smoky play area. This isn't really representative of the Bay Area BDSM Scene. It can be useful for testing whether a partner is receptive to BDSM.
