Here is a review from an user.
A very beautiful center which is hidden and hard to find if it's your first time there. They do not do wedding there anymore. A great place to have a big bday party, graduation party or whatever event you can think of. It sits at least ppl with more room for standing. We had a wonderful experience here on a graduation party we had
Amazing venue with an incredible view of the Golden Gate! Spacious and appreciated access to the coat storage area for hidden storage for my friend's event. Parking was tricky but did appreciate that they let us reserve spots for immediate family and vendors. Already looking for an excuse to go back.
I have attended several trade shows and conferences here. This is a great place for them. It is conveniently located. There several Hotels and Restaurants close by. Also there are couple of parking garages are located to Mascone West. Mascone West it self is huge and well maintained.
With the new additions, they have a lot more space. It looks good. Also right on the middle of the city, great to go to a conference here.
Great event venue. Attended a conference during the Omicron peak. It felt very safe, it is very spacious, air filters they checked vaccines.
This a great place to catch a concert. The policy is that you must be vaccinated and boosted so deal with it. There is bar area for all the booze you need. There is standing area or first come first served seating. The staff is all friendly and helpful. For my show, The War On Drugs were amazing .
This is an excellent coworking space for engineers. Below are things I like about it: - No music in the common area. This place is all about heads down focus work. I had to leave wework because they play music in every single common area I've been to (and I visited multiple offices in NYC and sf). - Keurig coffee machine that has both decaf and caffeinated pods. I like this much more than wework, which provides "fresh brewed" coffee but only has it pm and only caffeinated, which is a huge problem if you work late and need a coffee to stay up. - /7 access via app controlled lock. Wework gives you this but only if you get a dedicated desk. This is provided to all members, including ones who go for the cheaper hot desk option. - Snacks provided completely for free (see pics) plus cereal and milk. - Vending machines with wider selection. The killer for me is caffeine free Diet Coke, which it has. Also has ramen. - Great common rooms that are generally free where you can have larger meetings. - Access to a gym and roof terrace. Awesome for bringing friends over or having parties. This access is /7-- you just borrow the key fob, which is hung on the bulletin board in the office. - They have events like bagel Friday's. Love these things. - The place is windowless, but the design makes it seem like there are tinted windows (see pics). This is a polarizing feature, but I personally love the lack of real windows because I work late and get depressed when the sun starts to rise and I have to go home. Like I said-- this place is all about focus. - All the chairs are soft and you can sit in them all day. Not like wework, which has hard chairs in the common areas and meeting rooms that hurt your butt after a while (possibly by design). - They gave me a week to week membership for the common area for $/week, which is a great deal in my opinion. The story behind this place is it's in the basement of a hotel, and they used to use the space for storage. After doing this for a while, someone figured out they could redesign it as an office space and make more money. So they did, and that's what it is now. I think if you're an engineer you'll love this place-- but as a creative type I think you'll hate it. Wework is probably a better option for creative types in my opinion.
Beautiful place . But for some reason the laundry machines never stay working long
What can I say, it's a flight of stairs? Well I suppose I can say a Few things about it: These steps are a nice place to go to get away from the hustle and bustle of downtown San Francisco and have a nice sit, read a book, smoke a cigarette (or other combustible depending on your tastes.) Very few people ever use these stairs so it can be a good place for quiet contemplation, a quick nap, or if you are between living arrangements I would think it might be a nice spot to setup camp and get a good night's sleep 🤔 I rarely see pigeons here which is a plus and there's stairs are kept quite clean compared to similar stair spots in the city. Although I don't encourage any illegal activity I will say the privacy afforded by these stairs and their "cutty" nature would make them perfect for all sorts of clandestine activities! 🎲💉💊🥳🫂
Recommend doing the Oakland Ale Trail, and get a free growler from them. You can do it more than once. Very helpful staff.
We had a jolly time at the Charles Dickens London Fair (Drive thru version) this Christmas season. Was able to pick up scones and some hot chocolate with black tea. I do think that the rain soured the experience overall but it was still a unique event I wanted to try out. I would much rather prefer if we could go inside.
The convention center is quite nice but everything around closes early (by :pm) and no place serves liquor, both on account of how sketchy the area is.
Better than SF locations
The Ronald V. Dellums Federal Building is an Oakland landmark, and is very well maintained. The Building must have an exceptional maintenance staff!
