This three-story Oakland landmark at the entrance to Jack London Square was built in 1909 astride the terminus of the first Transcontinental railroad. It was once known as the Overland House — the place for travelers to complete their “overland” journey before setting sail on the Pacific.
This former pub and “bawdy house” was a favorite haunt of Mr. Jack London himself, named in his John Barleycorn as a preferred spot to score free drinks. True to its roots, the our 101 Broadway location sits above a restored, ground floor restaurant and bar, the closest of many watering holes and great dining options in Jack London Square.
A painstaking 2013 restoration revealed original 7-brick-thick walls and sweeping 60-foot wooden beams — the textures of Oakland’s historic Produce Market — and added brilliant skylights, eco-friendly building systems, gigabit Internet, high-tech conference space, phone rooms and a wide variety of seating and meeting options. Other favorite features include a sunlit workbar, community kitchen and our famous 30-foot tube slide – AKA the “Gravity-Powered Productivity Booster”. Ping-pong, pool table, bike parking and showers as well as ample supplies of craft beer and coffee keep Port Workspace members, fit and fueled for any business challenge.
I love the Port -- I've been a member at another coworking space and visited quite a few others, and the Port is by FAR the best. I like that there's actually community spirit here (although it's also fine if you just work at your desk and don't talk to anyone) and a lot of events and chances to interact. The staff is super responsive, friendly and open to new ideas which helps build that community spirit. It's also super clean and the diversity of the spaces available means that you can find the perfect noise level for you (I heart 101 Broadway but the other two locations are great too).
Awesome co-working space! Everyone is very friendly and willing to network. There are several events hosted, including member lunches and happy hours. The location is fantastic right at Jack London Square, can walk down to the water (across the street) if you need to get a way from the computer for a minute and relax. Plenty of bars and restaurants in the area including a new awesome country bar and grill in the building downstairs called Overland with the best happy hour in the city! Definitely check out the spaces and take a ride in the slide. There is a ping pong/ pool table down stairs also which is free to use. Plenty of indoor secured bike parking also
