The Venue

Our fully accessible Temescal venue will again be transformed into a haven that welcomes your kinkiest passions, as the mingling of leather and the touch of lace awaken your senses. For those new to this space, the backdrop for your evening will be a clean, fully accessible professionally maintained community venue with:

  • ADA-compliant bathrooms
  • Multi-person shower
  • Sauna
  • Social room
  • Two kinky play areas
  • Sensual Play Area
  • Cuddle room
  • Plenty of soft surfaces for sensual play or aftercare

The venue is located in the Temescal neighborhood of Oakland with easy freeway and BART access.


As with all AfterDark play parties, we will have role stickers and conversation starter stickers. In addition - we will be using our wristband system to help people appropriately initiate social interactions. People who are comfortable being respectfully approached about the possibility of play will be wearing yellow wristbands. If you see someone wearing a red wristband, that indicates that they prefer to not be approached about play, but may be open to conversations on other topics. Let them bring up play, don’t bring it up to them.


An accessible dungeon already exists on the ground floor at the venue. We will be bringing in a lot more equipment for guests to play on. Enjoy the kinky furniture - or get creative and show us how else you might use the space. There will also be accessible spaces for sensual play.

Dress Code

Dressing to the theme is strongly encouraged in order to help maintain the immersive ambiance of the night. Kinky or sexy outfits, lingerie, or fetishwear are also welcome as are dungeon blacks. We encourage you to dress up - make an effort to impress but if nothing else comes to mind then dress as you would for a fancy night out. You can be kinky, subversive, etc. No street clothes, etc.

Please be mindful that you might have to wait in line outside and that you are welcome to arrive in regular clothes and then change into your kinky outfit once you get inside!

Embracing Diversity in Every Form

This is a celebration of humanity in all its forms, a space where age, race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and abilities blend seamlessly together. Join with your fellow adventurers from every corner of life's spectrum, honoring the beauty that arises from our shared experiences. Nurturing a spirit of acceptance, our gathering is an inclusive one that warmly welcomes everybody.
