Our space is ideal for a range of events and gatherings. If drinks crafted and curated by people that obsess about that kind of stuff is important too, we're your spot. We love our space best when it is benefitting our community and supporting celebrations, entrepreneurs and artists. It is perfect for those looking for a casual, comfortable East Bay spot. If drinks made by skilled baristas, coffee roasted down the street in Emeryville, or beer from local breweries (Fieldwork Beer and East Brothers Beer) is important to your gathering, that's our specialty. We also carry a full line of 4Track tea sourced and blended in the family. Wine from Campovida Winery is our favorite and a small selection is available on request. Our space is perfect for groups that like to mingle, drink and explore. We’ve hosted pop-ups, classes, receptions, art openings, record swaps and all kinds of celebrations. If separate, intimate, connected zones are best for your event, this is the spot. The cafe space with bar at the front leads to spaces for groups to chat and opens up to our moon mural room and outdoor patio. A roll up door opens your event to street level. Our back patio has cafe tables, picnic tables, succulent plantings, a shade sail and string lights for evening events. A peaceful oasis in the middle of Berkeley. The entire space can accommodate up to 100 people and is near the Cal campus and North Berkeley Bart station. Pricing includes 1 barista. Drinks are extra. For larger parties, additional baristas are available at an additional fee. Cleaning fee includes basic closing and garbage fees. Additional cleaning fees may apply depending on event details.
A Highwire Coffee employee will be present for all events. Renting out part of the cafe while the business is open limits event activity and noise to typical business levels.
This space was great for our company holiday party. We loved how spacious the indoor/outdoor venue was, the music was easy to control and our bartender/barista Mike was very attentive and helpful. I would definitely recommend this space.
