The Academy Club

A thumb scan gets you in. You take a seat by the blackjack table. The host greets you, takes your coat, and your evening begins...
 

Opened in June 2017 and located in the heart of San Francisco's Castro District, The Academy Club is equal parts social club, intimate lounge, and the charming "home away from home" you’ve always wanted—a casual experience, with impeccable taste. We strive to bring people closer together and showcase what is exceptional about each of them.

The Speakeasy


The Speakeasy


A few words to the host gets you escorted downstairs through a secret door. A buzzer is provided should you need anything from the staff.
 

The Academy Speakeasy is the perfect place to meet a client, hide out with friends, or just share a quiet moment. The Speakeasy is typically available to members and their guests during all hours of operation. Its distinctive style and underground setting gives a provocative contrast to the rest of the Club.
