Bringing you Light's best mature events and venues - Every day of the week!
Looking for great social or rp events to hang out at? Party through the night? Meet new people?
Or do you want to set up and promote your very own venue? Have experienced hosts teach you the ropes?

What is Darkside?
Darkside is a discord based community all about mature social and rp events on the Light Datacenter of FFXIV.
Active since 2019 and originally only about 2 recurring events. The passion for events grew ever bigger. Sparking a wish to give back and spread what we learned. Eventually blossoming into setting up a discord server as a hub for more than just our original venues.
A strong focus on teaching others what we know and helping them learn how to realise their very own dreams and ideas.
Mature?
We label ourselves as a hub for "mature" events. Despite the common associations with that term, we are far from exclusively hosting NSFW places. Mature in our case means emotional maturity.
For us, that is a cornerstone, both for our SFW an NSFW venues.
We not only require people to be over 18 on paper, we require them to behave in a way that we can actually believe it too.
Many events!
We and our multitude of hosts are eager to give you the best experiences we can. Be it a chill bar night with friends, partying on a dancefloor, relaxing in a cafe or spa all the way to your most lewd and depraved desires.
We got a place for everyone! Every day of the week!

"Your ideas, your events"No matter your level of experience. Total beginners are welcome to learn and experienced veterans are welcome to advertise their existing gig or help coach.
Working with us means learning how to host your own successful venue. We and our community of experienced hosts will make sure you not only have, but also know how to use the tools you need. We'll never just hand you anything without effort, but we'll teach you how to get it all yourself. Once you got it all figured out and are ready to go, you can promote your creation to our whole community.
For what price? Totally for free! We will never demand anything from you.

Darkside is home to a wide array of different clubs, bars, pubs and other venues. Have a read through what they have to say about themselves!

Cafe Catfish
This lovely seaside themed café is the perfect spot to come relax and meet friends, or even bring your date! Open each Friday we invite you to come enjoy a cup of coffee, listen to the staff bicker and banter and join in on our games and activities!
