The Academy Club


2166 Market Street ・ San Francisco, CA

 

Opened in 2017 and located in the heart of San Francisco's Castro District, The Academy 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 focus on promoting interactions among our Members and guests, while offering engaging programming in collaboration with nonprofit organizations, neighboring businesses, and leading community members.

“The Club,” as we call it, is open to all and aspires to be diverse in age, race, gender, and social standing, with all Members sharing a common interest in engaging in the community and valuing in-person connections.
