SF Pride offers $300 party, club passes

The San Francisco LGBT Pride Celebration Committee is selling $300 passes that will offer access to prime parade viewing areas and free or discounted admittance to some nightclubs, parties, and restaurants. The VIP Pride Pass will be good around the weekend of this year’s Pride parade and celebration, June 25-26.

Passes can be purchased here. One hundred  are available.

Events held by the popular dance night Club Papi are an example of what’s available with the passes.

June 23, passholders will get into the Pan Dulce party at The CafĂ©, 2369 Market Street, for free. June 25, pass holders will get into Club Papi at Space 550, 550 Barneveld Street, at no cost, according to Club Papi’s Jamie Awad.

Despite the $300 price, Pride board member Joshua Smith said, “We’re fully confident” that the passes will sell. Board member Lord Martine said proceeds will go to Pride’s community partners.

Pride still owes thousands of dollars to nonprofits from last year’s event. Several of the groups waiting for money had volunteered selling drinks in exchange for a cut of the proceeds.

Smith said Pride still aims to pay the agencies back.

“Our beverage partners are always front and center,” he said.
