Getting in is as simple as ringing the doorbell during open hours. Noisebridge is located at 272 Capp St. in the center of San Francisco's Mission District. Ring the Noisebridge doorbell, a large red button attached to the front gate, and wait a few minutes. Please be patient. Someone will probably buzz you in. If no one answers, you can ring again after a bit but please be patient - someone has to get up from hacking to answer the door. Check the front page of this wiki for current hours.
Keep in mind we have limited hours while we reboot from the pandemic and our move to a new building!

Read up on Getting Here.
Noisebridge is a space that has been designed since its inception to be open to pretty much all hackers. We especially welcome those who like to tinker and hack on things, and those who are generally nice.
Read here for more Visitor advice on our culture and some suggestions on how to interface with it. Our collectivist Do-ocracy -style anarchy is often strange to people who are accustomed to more authoritarian structures, and many new visitors are initially confused on how things work or who they should talk to about things. If it's your first time here, ask the person who let you in, or other friendly looking people for a tour! This can be a great way to jump into the Noisebridge culture and learn more about how we work.
Noisebridge is most fun if you bring a project or project idea to work on.
