Flat Rental Rates

UPDATE: On August 21, 2022, we announced an update to our flat rental rates. In addition, some rental policies are changing. See below for more information on those. 

  • New rates will go into effect for new 2022 bookings on September 21, 2022.
  • We urge groups to “lock in” new bookings with the existing rate before that date. Doing so will also help us recover from the August MPV revenue loss. 
  • Rate increase will go into effect for all 2023 bookings and groups when the 2023 booking calendar opens on  October 1, 2022. 
  • That rental process will involve taking requested dates, and is not a “first come, first served process.”
  • Rate increases are between 12.5 and 20 percent, depending on day and time. 

 

NEW RATES: 

First amount is Folsom Side only. Second is whole space. Russ Side rates have not been established

Day/time Previous Rate New Rate % increase
Weekday morning or afternoon $200/400 $225/450 12.5/12.5
Weekend morning or afternoon $350/600 $400/675 14.29/12.5
Monday-Wednesday evening $300/500 $360/575 16.67/15
Thursday or Sunday evening $350/675 $400/700 14.29.12.5
Friday evening $800/1300 $950/1500 18.76/15.38
Saturday evening $1000/1500 $1200/1750 20/16.67

The rates above are our “rack rates.” Events renting with these rates keep their entire door receipts. We ask for a deposit to secure a date. Some weekends are in high demand and may have higher rates, in addition to being scheduled with community input to ensure parity. 

Pricing for overnight and two day events is based on the primary rental time(s) and day(s). 

RENTAL POLICY UPDATES: 

As part of this focus on fiscal responsibility, we are also adjusting some of our rental policies.

  • Effective September 1, 2022, Transform1060 will ask that new rentals pay the entire rental fee in advance to secure their booking date. We will no longer be accepting 50% deposit with remainder after the event.
  • If a group cancels their event after finalizing the booking, that amount will be 100% refundable up to 45 days before the event. From 44-31 days before the event, 50% will be refunded. Within 30 days of the event, there will be no refund for cancellations.
  • The specific cancellation deadline dates for each rental will be included in the group’s event contract.

 

Our goal is to have our site calendar reflect availability. However, we’re still in the process of loading events into the calendar. If you’re interested in renting the space, email us at info@transform1060.org. 

Alternatives to our flat rental rates

As a non-profit, community run educational space, Transform1060 depends on hosted rental fees to meet our budget and remain financially sustainable. However, we are also committed to providing space for organizations and groups that have historically been marginalized, excluded, or underrepresented in leather/kink/fetish communities. We are also committed to helping groups and individuals “try out” new event ideas and themes to gauge community demand. 

To that end, our operating proposal calls for allocating 10-20% of our monthly gross rental receipts to support historically excluded, marginalized, and underrepresented groups and individuals through funding of events, admissions, and other discounts and expenditures. (That’s 10%  until the rent debt is retired, increasing as the gross income allows.) 

If your group, or organization thinks you might qualify for discounted rental or alternative hosting arrangements, contact us directly at info@transform1060.org. Include information about your group, your estimated attendance, and days/dates under consideration. Because Transform1060 has limited financial resources for these discounts, we may not be able to accommodate every request. 

Finally, some events choose to donate some or all door proceeds to Transform1060, or use other models — for example, a discounted rate combined with sharing the door proceeds. One of our goals it to make these options clearer through collaboration with our stakeholders and community accountability panel.

Event Policies

Because Transform1060 uses a hosted-event model, we do not have a lengthy set of guidelines or “dungeon rules” for all events.

We ask that hosts have explicit guidelines for attendance (who can attend) and that they have clear policies about consent, DM presence, etc. 

Transform1060 does not rent to or host open or private cisgender-only events. We are working with the community to establish guidelines for event hosts to ensure events are not just inclusive, but welcoming. 

There is no smoking allowed in any part of the Transform1060 indoor space. Smoking is allowed in the courtyard area. 

Sales of alcohol are not permitted at Transform1060. 

All bathrooms at Transform1060 are open to everyone; there are no gendered bathrooms.

All events, public or private, must verify attendees are vaccinated with an initial COVID series. Events are welcome to have more stringent requirements, which might include masks, rapid COVID testing, etc.

For detailed expectations for hosts, please see our new HOSTING EXPECTATIONS page. 

Folsom side

The “Folsom side” of Transform1060 includes the entrance at 1060 Folsom Street, the entrance lobby, upstairs locker area and “chill space,” as well as the main space and loft. There are two bathrooms: one toilet only (no sink) off the upstairs locker, and one accessible bathroom off the lobby/hallway area. 

Russ Side 

The “Russ side” of Transform1060 is the newer addition. It can be accessed through the courtyard entrance at 190 Russ Street, or via the large door at the back of the main Folsom side space. The Russ side includes a number of smaller rooms that open onto each other. The entrance lobby is a lounge with a full kitchen and a small stage. There is one bathroom in the Russ Side, which is not fully accessible because of its small size. 

Courtyard

The Transform1060 courtyard is a gated area accessible from 190 Russ Street and from the large back door in the Folsom side. The accessible/roll-in entrance to both sides is through the courtyard. It can also be used for those needing dedicated accessible parking, or for loading and unloading, with prior notice.
