the Place To Be Just Who You Are!
Lady Leigh started the LoftNC as a place to help people. She created a space that is not only welcoming but is grounded in education and social opportunities. Over the past ten years, the LoftNC has become home to many who have felt lost, different, or unwelcome in other circles. Many have made lifelong friendships, discovered their sense of self and more all because the LoftNC opened their doors to them. The LoftNC is a place that provides education, social opportunities, and support for members of the BDSM community who value individual responsibility, integrity, confidentiality and respect for self and others. We try to have great demos for you and provide quality time for you to play, socialize and get your hugs and energy boost.
The goal of the LoftNC has always been to educate and provide a safe space for all without censure or drama. The LoftNC is always growing to better provide for the needs of the Charlotte community and surrounding areas. The Social Club is for the community and all funds received go toward paying bills to keep the doors open and provide a welcoming atmosphere for our members to enjoy.
What we are & what we are not!
We ARE an education based Social Group and Dungeon located in Gastonia, NC. We offer a kink friendly environment in which to relax and play, enjoy stimulating conversations where nothing is taboo, have noisy scene time, or a place to get away with freedoms for kink not always available in a hotel. We strongly believe in educating others to enjoy this lifestyle safely. This is our mission. We ARE NOT a place to come with the goal of "having sex, being/or watching sex." If that's your goal, we are not the club for you.
The LoftNC holds open play socials and specialty parties on Friday and Saturday evenings and educational demos/presentations and events on Sunday afternoons. Please see our Calendar of Events for further information. Presentations and demos are open to everyone and are NOT vetted events as we strongly believe education should be available to everyone and it is our mission to assist in teaching others about the kinky lifestyle we love so much.
The LoftNC is a non-smoking facility, however, smoking and vaping are permitted on the patio. We ask everyone to honor our smoking policy for the comfort of all of our members. Violations of our smoking policy will result in a $250 cleaning assessment.

BLACK LIVES MATTER!!!
YES we are very in support of Black Lives Matter and are working diligently to make sure that our policies (while they have always stated that everyone is welcome and we don't do drama of any sort) will be updated to more specifically reflect our alignment and support of PoC. We are and have always been an all inclusive event venue where drama and discimination in any manner is not and never will be tolerated. All PoC and LGBTQ are always welcome.
The LoftNC is located in Gastonia on almost two acres of private property, in a well insulated “Loft” above a garage play space, leather shop for Soaring Eagle Creations for and private office. The LoftNC is approximately 1600 square feet on 2 floors with a full kitchen (with all essentials), full bath, and is equipped with a massage table, St Andrews crosses, spanking benches, queen size 4 poster bed with 2 cages underneath and multiple attachment points, medical table, suspension beam, seating areas, stereos, and WiFi. There is also a large back deck with chairs for relaxing and a new 10' suspension beam as well.
Summer of 2019 we replaced a lot of boards on the deck, completely rebuilt the outside stairs, added privacy boards along the upstairs deck for more privacy and completely painted all of it. Our large deck is now a lot more private and welcoming for outdoor play, weather permitting.
Early 2020 we replaced the roof and painted inside and out. To those who donated to make this possible, you have our eternal gratitude.
Summer 2021 we are working on putting a solid roof over the deck to provide a more weatherproof social and play area.
