Hi there! This space was custom-designed from the ground up by local artisans and artists to be a high-end event space for the Bay Area. We took everything we learned from our success at our first Peerspace location to create this truly unforgettable event space. This brand new location is truly a undiscovered gem in the East Bay arts and community scene. The space is 3,500 square feet of beautiful large skylights, tons of exposed brick, steel beams, and old timber. The space has been recently renovated by hand (including my hands) and we have built in everything we can think of with the finest detail into this project. Weekday (Monday - Friday afternoon) hourly rate is $96/hour as listed! Weekend rate (Friday night through Sunday night) is $149/hour, please make note. As a Peerspace "Power Host", I've hosted more than a hundred special events and celebrations of all types and I'm happy to work with you to customize the space to fit your specific event needs. We have seven handcrafted designer tables and seating for up to 75 people at a time. A few of the tables are 12 foot long tables that can be linked together to create a single 36 foot community table to seat 50 people together at once! We can add additional furniture (not included) to increase seating capacity to 120 people. The Gorgeous Modern Event Venue supports local artists and features gorgeous handcrafted tables, fine art, and decor that all created by local Bay Area residents. By booking with us you enable us to keep the gallery completely free for our local creative residents to showcase and sell their amazing work. So thank you! We provide a high-end professional music venue system, wireless LED customized lighting, an HD cinema projector, 200" movie screen, custom built photobooth studio with vintage props, a catering room, smart locks, a high-end laptop, and most importantly, some of the best customer service and event support you will find. The A/V package comes complete with a dedicated A/V technician along with all the equipment (speakers, microphones, stage, projector, movie screen) for $200 flat. The Gorgeous Modern Event Venue is located in the West Berkeley neighborhood. West Berkeley is an up-and-coming part of the East Bay that is full of young families, artists, and technology companies. There is street-parking available, both metered and non-metered...and best of all the venue is extremely accessible from the freeways and highways (right of I-80!). I am so excited to share this wonderful space with the Peerspace network after a year of hard work. I know you will love it! We'll do everything we can to make sure your event is a hit. Thanks so much, Sarah
Weekday (Monday - Friday afternoon) hourly rate is $96/hour as listed! Weekend rate (Friday night through Sunday night) is $149/hour, please make note. High-end custom photobooth with vintage props is $200 for unlimited photos or $5/photo session. A/V package is $200 fee to setup the projector, movie screen, wireless mics, and professional audio system. Basically, we operate a "leave no trace" policy. We will clean thoroughly before you rent so that is sparkling upon your arrival. We will take care of a full cleaning after the event, but ask that you remove anything you've brought in. We have great catering partnerships for food and/or alchohol if you're interested! You may bring in any food you like. You may bring your own catering service as well. You will be responsible for any significant damage done to the facilities or products in the space. Normal wear and tear, however, is not a problem.
We had a wonderful experience in the meeting center. It's light filled, comfortable, and well-appointed with attractive art and furnishings. We needed a large enough room to move around through a 5 hour off-site, and the space supported an engaged, successful process. Sarah quickly responded to questions and supported us in making a last minute change in the timing. We'll be back! Highly recommend the meeting center.
This was a perfect space with great staff. The space was as big of a hit as the event, with guest after guest asking how we found it, etc. The setup is suited so well for an event that includes a presentation with the stage and screen already in place. The chairs, tables, bar area and everything are also really cool; they didn't take a cool space then load it with office-style furniture and fixtures; it's designed well from top to bottom. Highly, highly recommend.
Wonderful open space. I held a class there that included practicing tai chi and we loved the spaciousness. Great location and super smooth coordination with the hosts.
We used the space for a full day work retreat and it was the perfect setting. The space was all set for us and we were able to leave site for lunch. It is a beautiful space.
I absolutely loved everything about my experience ! Sarah and her staff were amazing. The space was everything that it appeared to be online and some. Definitely will back and would recommend to everyone.
The space was beautiful, clean, well lit, amazing art, nice airflow, open and airy. Sarah and the other folks on site were super helpful and easy going. Tech was great, sound was great, we had no issues. The only minor drawback was at one point, someone was smoking in an adjacent building, and it wafted in pretty strongly into our space. The person on site immediately closed the cross-breeze window and the smoke abated. There are no serving supplies or kitchen amenities (like a sink other than in the bathroom), so if you're bringing food, bring your own : )
