What is Noisebridge?

We are an accessible, community-operated, non-profit hackerspace for artists and audiences interested in the intersection of art, technology, and creative expression. We are a place to learn, play, create, and share. Our facilities seek to provide infrastructure for work utilizing textiles, music, wood, metal, computer programming, electronics, science, robotics, space for performance or display, and collaboration.

You don't have to be a member or pay anything to participate in Noisebridge, we're free and open. You just have to follow the one rule: Be Excellent to Each Other!

Getting here and getting in

We are located at: 2169 Mission St. 3rd floor, San Francisco, CA 94110 Common transit options include 16th Street Mission bart just a block and half up mission street, taking the "14 mission" Muni bus to the 18th and Mission bus stop, biking (we have a bike rack inside of our space), or taking a car.

Getting in:

  • Ring the doorbell. Our gate is on the left side of the Mi Ranchito grocery store.
  • When you hear the door unlock, push the gate open and walk up the stairs to the third floor.
  • Ring the upstairs door bell by pressing the power button on the computer keyboard beside the door.
  • If it's your first time, you can request a tour.

We aim to be open from 11AM to 10PM daily. In practice, we're open as long as there's someone in the space willing to answer the doorbell. This results in us often not being open at precisely 11AM and usually not closing until well after 10PM. If you have a non-expired daytime access token, it should get you into the space between 10AM and 11PM.
