Tl;dr: * easy parking; enter our front door right from our parking lot * easy walking distance to Sa Ten, OMG Squee, Austin Eastciders tap room, Friends and Allies * working art studio: lots of color balanced with open space, blank walls, and lots of natural light * 3 large tables (10 feet by 5 feet) that can be pushed together * 1250 square feet with high ceilings * space for breakouts * up to 24 people at tables or 40 in theater setup * living room and kitchenette * committed to sustainability (use our plates instead of disposables, and we compost) * small Austin business * we love hosting! * can add on ice breakers and fun time * multi-stall bathrooms just down the hall * discounts for repeat rentals Located less than 10 minutes from downtown, our studio is designed with a focus on light and creativity. We are primarily a working art studio, and when we saw that people so sincerely enjoy simply being here (the most common thing we hear when folks walk through the door is "whoa, it's like a dream come true*,") we decided to offer coworking and meetings rentals. We would love to be your host and work with you to ensure an easy, special, and successful session! Our goal when you come to the studio is to take care of all the little things that would distract you from the content of your event. What makes the space special is the fact that we're an art studio, which encourages creativity. We strive for inspirational messy, balancing blank white walls and open space with tons of contained art supplies. Here's some more reading if you're interested! https://www.inc.com/ilan-mochari/creativity-messy-offices.html The studio is our craft room, and this balance between public space and homeyness helps everyone feel comfortable and at home, so your day can flow smoothly! --Accommodations-- We have three large tables (10 feet by 5 feet) that are on wheels. These can be pushed together to form a ridiculously giant table or used separately. You're also welcome to rearrange mid-meeting! Literally resetting the space together can be a great break for your team to also reset their energy in the middle of a long day. We also have several pop-up tables available. We recommend seating no more than 24 people at the tables, unless you love being close! We can also bring in folding chairs for a theater set up, with a maximum of 40 people. --Additional sweeteners to your meeting-- Natural lighting and open space keeps people awake, and we can provide crayons and other tools for productive doodling. https://www.health.harvard.edu/blog/the-thinking-benefits-of-doodling-2016121510844 We are happy to work with you to arrange catering, coffee, etc. If we arrange food, we'll also provide service throughout your time with us: picking up orders, refreshing drinks and food throughout the day, packing up leftovers, tidying the food and beverage tables, bringing out popsicles during the afternoon lull, etc. Team Building Activities ($) - We do team fun events! From a darts tournament aimed at paint-filled balloons on canvas targets, to calmer watercoloring, to screenprinting your company's logo onto shirts and bags and tie dyeing, we have many options to get those creative juices flowing. This stuff is our specialty! (We even know how to keep the mess to a minimum, we promise!) We also have facilitation experience and training, and we're happy to help you think through your day. Even better: let us help you build in short or longer crafty breaks! --Other notes-- We have plenty of parking right at our door! Bathrooms are just down the hall and multi-stall. Outlets at the tables. We provide plates, glasses, etc. as part of Austin's Zero Waste efforts. We also collect compost. We don't allow bottled water or catered coffee boxes; instead we have filtered water and brew coffee from local roasters. The studio includes a kitchenette with a fridge, toaster oven, microwave, and dishwasher. We also have a small living room with a few armchairs and a two person couch. With 24 people and the size of the studio, breaking out into smaller groups is easy. We can even arrange our large shelving units as space dividers. Within Texas summer walking distance (like when it's almost too hot for even a stroll down the block): Sa Ten, OMG Squee, Papa Joe's Tex-Mex, and only very slightly further: Eastciders tap room, and Friends and Allies. --Testimonials-- "I cannot recommend these hosts enough, especially for corporate outings because it really does bring out the creativity in everyone and it's a perfect multi-purpose space for groups." -Alli H., on Yelp "Spending an afternoon out of the office and immersing ourselves in a creative way allowed us to bond and create community in a way that we hadn't before." -Liz C., on Yelp As you can see from our reviews, guests love meeting in our space! And we love hosting. That's why we're so pleased to offer discounts for returning customers. *Every once in a while, someone will look stunned. We're always very concerned when we see that! But when we check in, their response is always along the lines of, "it's just so cool."
