Silver Island (18+)

Silver Island will not be making an appearance at the 2021 Virtual FanimeCon.  Please check in 2022 for future updates to our past events, which you can see below. Hope to see you next year!

A mature destination.

DoubleTree Hotel: 2050 Gateway Pl, San Jose, CA 95110
Friday–Sunday 8:00 pm–2:00 am

As part of our 25th Silver Anniversary, we’d like to announce something new and exciting launching at our DoubleTree location! Introducing Silver Island, a mature destination — a place where you can enjoy all the exclusive adult programming and shopping you might desire.

To visit, step aboard the shuttle service that will be provided 24 hours a day to the DoubleTree Hotel with an increase in frequency during Silver Island’s operating hours of 8:00 pm to 2:00 am, Friday through Sunday.

You must have a valid, unexpired government issued photo ID in order to be admitted to any of the programming or shopping at Silver Island.

Accepted Photo IDs (must not be expired):

  • Driver’s License
  • State ID
  • Military ID
  • Passport

No exceptions.

Silver Island Shuttle Schedule

Available 24 hours a day! Please use Route A to get to the DoubleTree hotel. You may have to transfer routes at the San Jose Convention Center if you are coming from a different hotel.

The schedule will be available when closer to Con. 

Please note: Bikes are not allowed on any FanimeCon shuttle.

Silver Island Food Trucks

We’re excited to work with Moveable Feast to bring a selection of food trucks to the DoubleTree to satisfy more palates for those visiting Silver Island!

Friday: Twister Truck
Saturday: 333 Truck
Sunday: West Poke

The trucks will be located outside the convention entrance to the hotel, the one in front of the staircase. On the DoubleTree map, it is the labeled entrance to the left of the shuttle stop. The food trucks will be there between the hours of 8:00 pm and midnight.

Rooms and Programming

Hentai Nights (18+)

Cascade/Siskiyou and Sierra – 1st Floor, West Side

Our infamous Hentai Nights returns to FanimeCon! Moans, groans, and panting from both the audience and the screen! Three scintillating nights of tentacles, school girls, and so much more. From the serious to the silly, sensual to smut, be ready for MST3K style commentary from your peers, and don’t be afraid to join in some of the chants.

Hot Yaoi Nights (18+)

Donner – 1st Floor, West Side

It’s raining men! Hot Yaoi Nights is back with three nights of men loving men. Sometimes sweet, sometimes sadistic, these videos are certain to delight! Yaoi is known for emotionally complex storytelling akin to romance novels. This isn’t your sister’s shounen ai — we are checking IDs for a reason!

Late Night Adult Gaming Room (18+)

Santa Clara/San Jose – 1st Floor, East Side

Come join us in the Late Night Adult Gaming Room! Here you can enjoy games with more mature themes not available in the Gaming Hall. We have Cards Against Humanity, Dead of Winter Crossroads, Tentacle Bento, and more!

Late Night Adult Gaming Room Game Check-Out Policy

  • Present your valid Photo ID and FanimeCon badge with matching names.
  • Temporarily hand over your FanimeCon badge to Tabletop Staff.
  • Receive a “temporary badge”, valid only inside the Adult Gaming Room while you are “renting” the game.
  • Upon returning the game in the condition in which it was received and verification of your ID, your FanimeCon badge will be returned.

While renting games, please adhere to the following:

  • Handle these items with respect and return them in the same condition in which you received them with all pieces intact.
  • Keep food and drink away from the playing area. Sealed water containers are allowed.
  • Return the game on request for tournament or special event use.
  • Observe the Gaming Hall Rules and the FanimeCon Code of Conduct.

Night Market (18+)

Cedar/Pine – 2nd Floor, West Side

We totally get the frustration of wanting to take a peek of what is under those squares of post-it notes on the posters in the Main Exhibit Hall. Or leaning over to the vendor and whispering your request for THOSE books hidden away under the tables. At the Silver Island’s Night Market, you can shop into the witching hour for all of the adult goods your heart desires without the post-it slips.

Silver Island Casino (18+)

Carmel/Monterey – 1st Floor, East Side

Announcing the return of one of our hugely popular events for Silver Island: The Casino! Come play for fun with classic casino games like poker, blackjack, roulette and more on Friday and Saturday nights from 8:00 pm to 12:00 am.

Please note that fake money is used at the Casino but the fun and games are real!

Stage of Stars (18+)

Fir/Oak – 2nd Floor, West Side

Enjoy three nights of uninhibited fun hosted by MC Travis and a cast of Bishies. Our cast of Bishies will entertain “Bishounen Bingo” style with FREE Bingo plays during intermissions on Friday and Saturday. So, what do we have in store for you?

Friday, 8:00 pm–2:00 am: What’s in the BOX?!

Good with your hands? Can your digits tell the difference between the good kind of sticky from the bad kind? Slide your hands into a blind box (the audience won’t be so blind, they will smugly grin at what whatever you are about to touch), and try to guess what you are groping in 30 seconds.

P.S. We can’t promise it won’t be Gwyneth’s noggin in one of the boxes.

P.P.S. Please bring a pen/marker and something to write on if you’d like to participate in the Bishie Bingo during intermissions!

Saturday, 8:00 pm–2:00 am: Let’s Make a Deal

Will you choose the burlap sack cradled in the arms of a Bishie? Or will your eyes pan over the little box dusted with gold sparkles instead? Which one of the five McDonald’s Happy Meal boxes on the silver tray will you choose? Will you trade away a set of DVDs for… a squelching chicken in box number 2? Join us on Saturday night and be entertained by our cast of Bishies Vanna White-ing the good (and the not so good).

All audience members will be eligible to win prizes.

P.S. Please bring a pen/marker and something to write on if you’d like to participate in the Bishie Bingo during intermissions!

Sunday, 8:00 pm–2:00 am: K-Pop Party

Get ready to indulge in six full hours of music videos and concert footage in the latest phenomenon sweeping the world! K-Pop fans, get together and share your stans! Some of the stars to grace the screen will be: Taemin, BTS, Monsta X, (G)-idle, Key, Red Velvet, Black Pink, Hyuna, EXO, Jessi, CL, GD&TOP, TOP, GD, Taeyang, Shinee, TVXQ, Super Junior, Park Bom, Mamamoo, Ikon and… BURN THE STAGE!

And during intermissions… Turn your K-Pop obsession into a superpower! For good, of course. Can you assemble a 20 piece picture in under a minute without being distracted by all of the sexiness looking back at you? Can you tell which naked six-packs belong to whom? Brush up on your memorizing skills and go up against other equally skilled stans for prizes such as SIGNED BTS postcards, posters/clearfiles and MORE!
