At 1500 square feet, you can easily tailor the open space to any setup you like, as we can keep the space completely open as well as accommodate many seating arrangements. High ceilings with airy modern arches complement the openness of the space. We have available a projector, screen, tables, and 50 chairs for your use. Just two blocks from the Lake Merritt BART station, we are in a prime, vibrant area of Downtown Oakland, near the Jack London neighborhood.

This was a great space to hold 2 days of trainings. We had ample space to configure the room a variety of ways and the back area for food worked out great. We were concerned with 1 bathroom for 20 people but it turned out okay! The only difficulty I'll mention is that the high ceilings can make it echo-y and a bit challenging to hear at times.
Nice space, the host was super helpful in getting us everything we needed. There was a small hiccup when we arrived to set up for our event (the security guard wasn't able to enter the building and we wound up locked out for 10-15 mins) but the host fixed our problem and gave us an extra half hour for free. This venue worked out really well for our event.
A pleasant functional space for our group. Jonathan was very quick to respond to my multiple questions as a planner who lives outside of the area. Onsite staff was available very quickly to assist when needed. Separate area to stage food and use of a sink and refrigerator helped with the flow of the event. New chairs, table coverings provided, and the reasonable price are all pluses for this venue. I will definitely book this space again.
This was a great space and ample room for a large birthday party (infant, kids and adults). The AV setup was easy to play music and project videos. Plenty of tables to serve food and refreshments. Jonathan was a super helpful and friendly host and met us prior to our party. Would definitely book again.
