About the Night


FASCINATION is a gear/ fetish/ kink night downstairs in the basement of Jacques Cabaret from 9pm to midnight every second Monday and every fourth Friday of the month. 

 We often host kink demos led by local members of the Boston leather, rubber, and BDSM community for folks looking to learn from each other about kink they are curious about. Although the event is leather inspired, we are looking to bring together a diverse and gender inclusive cross section of Boston fetish culture (rubber, sports gear, bondage, S&M, pup play) by creating a space for folks in the community to meet up.

No Dress Code but fetish gear and creativity are both strongly encouraged. (Leather, Rubber, Sports Gear, Pup Play, Military, BDSM Gear, Levis, Boots, Masks) Feel free to change at the club.

*Note concerning jockstraps*

Jocks are acceptable, but if you wear one (or anything that exposes your ass), the bar requests that you toss a bandana or shirt down the back center to cover the cleft so that we are within the laws of the city of Boston.
