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.
A $200 security deposit is required for events only. No smoking or pets (service animals only). Pre-prepared food only. There is no prep kitchen. Alcohol permitted on a case by case basis.
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'
