This is a 1000 square foot flexible gallery and meeting space. Our large skylight and windows also provide great natural lighting. Our photo production studio is equipped with a seamless backdrop, tripod, continuous lighting and large video monitor, as well as a wireless PA system for music. Taking pictures in the studio can be a great addition to your event. We have seating for 20; however, we can accommodate 50. There will be an additional charge to order the extra seating. We are located in the up and coming Laurel district of Oakland near restaurants, coffee shops, and retail shopping. 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 is a great space for small gatherings up to 50 people. It works best for small launch parties, networking, exhibits, poetry readings, or pop up retail 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 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.

RBA Creative Gallery was the perfect space for my husband’s surprise birthday party. It was comfortable and elegant and Randolph and Erica were helpful in every possible way and very easy to organize/coordinate with. My husband’s party was really special, in part because of this beautiful venue.
Erica was amazing. She kept an open dialogue leading up to the day of my photo shoot. The space was exactly as advertised. Nice open space, great skylight, and spacious enough for my need. Randolph Belle was at the studio. He was very friendly and assisted me with some simple set up, and provided me with what I requested. Randolph even gave me some complimentary water. I would definitely come back and use this space.
