Meetings, Events, Production
Beautiful concrete and fir beam studio space in Railtown. Coworking studio for creative production by day, workshop, meeting and event space on evenings and weekends. Furnished with gorgeous locally made furniture, high end espresso machines and a myriad of unique touches that make for a truly warm and welcoming space.
We offer rentals for fundraiser events, workshops, classes, team building, meetups, film shoots etc. Ideal for social gatherings of 25 to 100 people, the space features several break out spaces and loungey areas to give your guests room to roam, or to choose an area to settle into.
There is a complete kitchen facility, lacking only a stove. We can provide catering partners upon request, as well as event staffing if needed. We also have a BBQ and a kegerator!
Located in Vancouver's Railtown Art & Design district, there is ample street parking at night, and we have space for up to 20 bikes in our secure indoor bike parking area.
** Please note that we give priority to community and arts & culture events. We are a non-profit organization with a primary mandate to provide space to values aligned organizations and individuals. Our venue is not suited to private sit down dinners, with very rare exception - a wine tasting, a food pairing, exclusive but not exclusionary. We book private birthday parties, weddings or other gatherings very rarely, and no further than one month in advance. **
