Great space for: Fashion Shows, Educational Workshops (photo, dance, yoga, etc), Corporate Mixers, Trunk Shows, Art Exhibits, Business meetings (we have full multi-media equipment), and private parties (including Birthday Parties). We have a wonderful 900 square foot studio/event space for rent in Downtown Oakland's famous city center and theater district. We are located in front of the Frank H. Ogawa Plaza park, facing Oakland's beautiful city hall. We are also just 50 ft from 12th Street City Center BART station. Inside our space, we have a hair/makeup table (which can also be used for catering), and 4 more 6' folding tables. Plus we have up to 40 chairs available at no additional cost. We have ample photo, video, audio, and lighting equipment if you want to record your event or stream it online. We have a 55" TV and a short throw video projector available. An ADA compliant bathroom and we are right at street level so no stairs or funny access to worry about. Just walk in off the street and you're here. PRICING: $75/hour including set-up and clean-up time. Renter is responsible for clean up. There is a 4-hour minimum rental from Friday-Sunday.
Nothing illegal on premises. No smoking, drugs, pornography or acts of sex allowed on premises. No alcohol without prior consent. And if you break it, you buy it. Please respect our space. No glitter, silly string, holi powder or duct tape allowed in the studio. Please, take care of our studio as it if it is your own; we have professional grade equipment available to our guests and expect our guests to be comfortable and competent using it properly. When gauging time management of your production, it's generally safe to allow yourself and your crew 15 - 30 minutes for setup and breakdown. Please arrive on time, as we will not open the door 10-15 minutes early to let you set up unless you ask us prior and/or book the extra time. Our studio assistant will help out for about 10 minutes to set up some lights or event tables and chairs if they are needed, and they will show you where things are in the studio (like the bathroom, air-conditioning, music, and first aid kit - always good to be safe). If you need our Studio Assistant to stay longer, then there will be an added charge for their help. With few exceptions, we offer a 10 minute grace period to clients, but after that, we will need to charge for any extra time in 30-minute increments. We expect that you have read the PeerSpace terms and conditions in their entirety, and will have a copy for you to see at our studio. Upon arrival, we may request a sign stating that you have read and agree to them, and we will like to see a photo ID to confirm you are the same person as in your PeerSpace profile. We are one of the most affordable studios in the greater Bay Area, and we have some of the most professional quality photo/video equipment available for renters to use. We would like to continue being a valuable resource to the creative community and need our renters to be respectful of our space in the proccess. Thanks for understanding.
leon was incredibly accommodating, i had another location that fell thru the day before our shoot, and i contacted him at 6am and by 630am the location was booked. the space was perfect, he even set up some lights for us to use!! I seriously enjoyed the space ill be booking with him again soon.
Leon was a great host! He took his time to show me around the studio and also setup the lighting for the music video shoot. Leon was very welcoming & I look forward to booking with him again.
A very nice studio with excellent options, accommodations & style. I appreciated Leon taking the time to go over everything this space has to offer, and being so kind & thorough. We felt welcome, and were able to get really creative and had a great photo shoot! Hope to be back soon, highly recommended.
Leon was a great help with our space rental for photo / video session. Very helpful and assisted with equipment rental too. Will definitely work with this space again. KM 🤘🏾
An amazing place, well-located, has its own equipment, can be slightly noisy though it wasn't significant, it's just something to keep in mind. Leon provided me with all necessary instruction, shown me around and left spare keys in case I'd like to "take five" and have a bite in the cafe literally next door. This place can accomodate 10-12 team members if you ever need such a big crew for photoshoot or video. Looking forward to book this place in the future. Mike
This is a great space located right at the 12th Street BART exit. It is primarily used by still photographers, but I did a video shoot here and had no issues. The studio is not soundproofed, but outside noise was minimal and my lav mics filtered everything out except the occasional siren. Leon and Sunny were great; allowing us to tack an extra hour on the end of our reservation at the last moment, and even helping me load my gear into my car. Leon said they will be installing some blackout curtains on the windows that are high up on the wall, which would be a welcome addition to block out the sunlight that leaks in in the late afternoon.
