I know you can turn the status bar on and off with

set -g status off

But I would like to bind a key to toggle the visibility of this status bar. Is there some way to toggle this setting?

Boolean options can be toggled when no value is given:

set -g status

If you want to bind a key add to you .tmuxrc

bind-key -n C-F3 set-option -g status #Ctrl+F3 Combo
