If you are purchasing a new membership, or renewing your annual membership, the regular door fees are waived for that evening.

Special events/classes might have different pricing, or additional expense. See event details for more information.

All guests/new members/renewals MUST present a valid government-issued photo ID that also has your date of birth on it, and MUST sign our waiver form.

You must be at least 18 years of age or older to join or attend, and all guests will have to sit down with a staff member for an orientation session to go over our rules before allowed entry.

Yes, even if you’ve been in the lifestyle for 20+ years, you still MUST go through our orientation so you know OUR rules.

Also, please be advised the more you try to talk during the orientation to tell us how long you’ve been in the lifestyle and how much you don’t need our orientation, the longer your orientation will take. 🙂 (It’s amazing how that happens…) We want everyone to know OUR rules and OUR protocols. We honestly don’t care about the rules of your local club/house party–you need to know OUR rules. Because if you break OUR rules, you will be removed from OUR club. So please listen carefully to OUR rules when you get the orientation, thank you!

We accept cash and most major credit cards.

Parking is plentiful and free, and we have free beverages (water, soda, tea, coffee) available. Some nights we have free food/snacks as well. Please check event details for information.

Our facility is wheelchair accessible.

Membership / How Do I Join?

Tampa Bay Phoenix Club is a private membership club. We are NOT open to the general public to simply walk in–although we ARE open to new members. (And many of our events, such as classes, demonstrations, and group meetings, are open to non-members.) Your security and peace of mind are important to the staff at the Phoenix. Our application process is designed to help weed out potential problems and increase safety.

So, how do you join?

For starters, you must be at least 18 years of age or older. NO exceptions.

To ensure privacy and security for our members, we screen all prospective members before they’re allowed to join. Please bring a valid, current, legal government photo ID that also has your date of birth on it (NO EXCEPTIONS) and be prepared to go through an orientation session with our staff, as well as take time to fill out our waiver form. We also run all prospective members and guests through the USDOJ database of registered sex offenders. (Free, and takes just a minute for us to do.)

You may come in during any normally scheduled operating hours. We do not set up separate appointments, and keep in mind if a special event is going on that night, you might have to wait for a while. You do not have to be “pre-vetted.”

Relax, we do our best to make it fairly painless to get your membership! (Unless you like it rough…LOL)

If you are new to the lifestyle, we also highly recommend attending one of the many local munches or Coffee Times, or attending our Lifestyle 101 class.

About Us

The Tampa Bay Phoenix Club began as a concept where people from all aspects of the alternative/kink/fetish lifestyles could come together in friendship and explore techniques safely and comfortably. Here you will find a diverse group of people who share the same desire to practice and learn in an environment that promotes continuing education, and doing so in a SAFE, SANE AND CONSENSUAL manner. We have members ranging from 18-80+ in age, from the het and LGBTQA+ communities, cis/trans/non-binary, and a wide spectrum of alternative lifestyle/kink practices.

While we are a “BDSM club” we consider ourselves a “kinky community center.” That’s because we have a diverse group of people from a wide range of lifestyle experiences who attend events. Everything from rope/shibari groups to poly vanilla game nights, to heavy BDSM play nights, and everything in between. If you’re interested in the BDSM lifestyle and new to it, you are welcomed to come in and talk to our staff and get your questions answered.

We strive to bring you presenters and demonstrators, and to offer workshops after presentations to let you practice your new skills in a comfortable and fun way. The Phoenix Club is staffed solely by volunteers who are dedicated to bringing you one of the safest places to play at a reasonable price. We were all members before we joined the team. And no, we don’t use discriminatory gender-based pricing tactics. We want anyone and everyone (18+) who wants to join and attend events to feel welcome at our facility.

Looking for something different? We have events and classes lined up every month. Please check the Calendar for more info.

Also, you can email us and we can discuss any concerns or questions you may have. Our goal is to provide everyone with the best experience possible when entering the lifestyle and make it fun too!

Check out our FAQ page, Calendar, review our Information page, and don’t forget to take the Directions with you. Hope to see you soon!

Don’t forget to bring your photo ID! We will not admit any applicant without a valid, legal government photo ID with your date of birth on it.
