Our modern event space in the heart of Santa Monica is located just blocks from the beach and Santa Monica Pier. Bright and spacious, the space features high ceilings, natural light, and modular furniture. Even more greets you upon entry into the space. The event space can seat up to 120 people seated and 200 standing. It includes access to full a/v (projector with AppleTV, 2 mics, speaker, stools, chairs, tables, podium), and a kitchen with a sink, filtered water, refrigerator and dishwasher available for your use. The space is approximately 900 square feet, and measures 50ftx18ft. Depending on the production, there may be an on-site manager present during the booking. There is a lot of natural light with east-facing windows. Although the space is next to a road, it is relatively quiet. Unfortunately, there are no parking options available. We recommend loading on the side of the building temporarily and then re-parking your car in the pay structure directly across the street.
No smoking. Hours booked must include setup and cleanup time. Alcohol permitted on case by case basis but not preferred. Trash must be collected prior to leaving the location. Event insurance must be procured for any events/production work. Time ends when the last person leaves the location. Pets are not allowed in the space or the building unless they are service animals. Catering is not permitted. Pre-made food and light kitchen use only. No actual cooking on-site. A/C is provided Monday-Friday from 9am-6pm and Saturday from 9am-1pm. If A/C is requested outside of these timeframes, the cost is an additional $75/hr. Operating hours are Monday-Friday (9am-9pm), Saturday (10am-5pm) and Sunday (by request and based on availability). If your event takes place outside of operating hours, there is an additional $50/hr charge for staffing/operations. There is no open flame or frying allowed on site or any cooking that will create a large amount of smoke as our facility is not ventilated. The event space will be in a clean condition prior to your event. Upon the end of the event, we ask you to return the space as neat as you can.
The whole General Assembly team was incredibly friendly, helpful, professional, and involved! They allowed us total, flexible use of the space and were quick to jump in with a helping hand wherever needed. Communication was quick and detailed. It was the PERFECT place for our event!
Weekend class worked very well. Extra space outside the classroom to use was helpful for breakout activities. Opening up the facility on-time was a little late, impacting setup before class began.
Space was clean and ready to go. Technology worked perfect with projector and wifi. Love the whiteboards all around the room. Brian, our host, was there early to open up the facility and allow us time to setup before class started. Good feedback from the students too, the space created energy and was easy to maneuver for an overall learning experience.
Was a great space: appeared as advertised and the minimalist and clean aesthetic suited are needs the host was lovely, but this isn't a space that caters for photoshoots and we did feel like we were very much in the way. Id use again but not for any sort of shoot or small production.
The space was exactly as described, and perfect for our needs (hosting a presentation). It is clean and open with plenty of natural light, great for hosting an event. The hosts at the venue were extremely accommodating and were a pleasure to work with. I have zero complaints and will certainly look to host future events in this space!
