Popular spaces in Oakland
I worked at Oakstop for a few days over 3 weeks to help with text banking as a contract worker for Vote.org. The space was very nice and easily accessible by BART, which was nice because some of the work shifts started as early as 6am. Upon entering, there are three floors of various workspaces and bathrooms on each floor. I worked primarily in the basement. A large room with lots of desks and laptops so people could work. It could get a little hot and noisy with the number of people coming in and out at all hours, but it was good for what it was. I can see how artists and scholars and community members could utilize the various rooms and space for a diverse array of projects. It was a great place to work and I'd love to come back in the future for more events.
This is an excellent facility. Great for artists academics and independent businessmen alike. Staff is very friendly and extremely helpful and they have a wide range of spaces avaiable depending on your needs. Prices are reseonable as well. Highly recommend.
I've traveled the world and used co-working spaces everywhere, and the Oakland Impact Hub is my favorite one! I love the focus on social justice, environmental issues, art and non-profits, with representation from local tech, of course. The evening programs are fantastic and varied. The staff and work-exchange folks are friendly and knowledgable. The space itself is gorgeous, augmented by the rotating art and community activities. Friday Sexy Salad Community Lunch is pretty great too. Big props to the organizers and founders for all their hard work!
What an awesome place! If you work from home and need a change f scenery, it is awesome, with plenty of space and activity going around it is a great change of pace. They also have great conference room space that can be rented, or if you are at that point they also have office space for rent. It is also a really cool venue for larger events, with a variety of ways the interesting multi-floor space could be used.
I've got to say - THIS PLACE ROCKS! I own a real estate company and we operate out of here. My co-workers and I really love the space and the community - it's been wonderful being a part of it from the start. The owners at Temescal Works have done a great job attracting really good residents - there are a lot of creative and entrepreneurial juices flowing through here! The rates are reasonable and the service is top notch. Zero complaints! Can't wait to continue growing together!!
Awesome new co-working space in Temescal! Great working environment with all the amenities you could need, plenty of space and thanks to the open plan two levels, it feels very airy! Definitely recommend you check it out if you work in the area.
