Hi there! This space was custom-designed from the ground up by local artisans and artists to be a high-end production 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. 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 150 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! The Creative Space 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 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. Weekday (Monday - Friday afternoon) hourly rate is $96/hour as listed! Weekend rate (Friday night through Sunday night) is $120/hour, please make note. The Creative Space 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, Ben
Weekday (Monday - Friday afternoon) hourly rate is $96/hour as listed! Weekend rate (Friday night through Sunday night) is $120/hour, please make note. 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.
This space is perfect! We hosted our wedding reception and it could not have gone better. Ben and his team were helpful throughout with everything we needed. The tables, lighting & exposed brick are absolutely stunning! Our guests have been raving non-stop. I can't wait to book another event!
This is my second time at Poet's Corner, and it was again amazing! When I went in, everything was set up and ready to go. Tables were in place, mic was hooked up, and I could just play music. Patrick was really helpful and gave me his number in case anything was needed. I would definitely return to Poet's Corner for my next event.
This was a great location for our wedding celebration. Ben and his crew pretty much did everything we asked very accommodating. Our Guest complemented on what a wonderful spot this was. I would recommend this space to anyone holding any type of event I give it a five stars
