This is a 1000 square foot flexible gallery and meeting space. The space works well for meetings, workshops, and classes. We also have gallery and exhibition space, so you will be surrounded by beautiful and interesting art. Our large skylight and windows also provide great natural lighting. We are located in the up and coming Laurel district of Oakland near restaurants, coffee shops, and retail shopping. We have motorized work desks for standing and sitting, laptop desks, bench seating and chairs. Most seating and desks are on wheels for easy configuration. Wifi, video monitor, tables, chairs, coffee/tea, and wireless PA system are all included in the fee. There is also space for catering; however, we do not have a food prep kitchen. There is a sink, microwave, and bathroom available for use. This space works well for artistic "pop-up"vending, creating a "sip and see" for local wine vendors, offsite meetings, book readings or signings, workshops and networking events. A host will be present when you arrive for your event. We will have the space set up for you prior to your arrival and the host will help set up any food or equipment you bring. Our space is available for rent weekdays and weekends by appointment. There is free parking in the surrounding neighborhood and metered parking on MacArthur Blvd. The space is also accessible by bus. We recommend inquiries and/or site visits prior to booking so we can suggest set up and get a clear understanding of your needs.
The rental time you book must include set up and tear down time. No smoking or pets (service animals only). Pre-prepared food only. There is no prep kitchen. Alcohol permitted on a case by case basis. Certificate of insurance and appropriate permits required prior to the event for any vendors.
The space was perfect. Erica was accommodating to our needs and budget. The Room was spacious and had enough seating for us. They were also willing to take down the art they had installed to allow us to exhibit our portraits and poetry.
The hosts of this space, Erica and Randolph, are very customer focused. We had a positive experience in the collaboration with them in the planning of our workshop. The space was great for our needs. Curt Mandell
Erica was amazing! We ended up having more participants attend then what we expected and they adapted so well and helped us out in such short time notice! We will always consider this space when we are in the area!!
The space was perfect. It had everything I needed.... private area for my client to change wardrobe, water, bluetooth speakers, several backdrops, parking right in front. Randolph, Erica's husband was very kind and very hospitable taking care of everything I needed before giving us some private time for a bit. I would definitely book this space again. Thank you for everything!! Nye'
