Community Events at Citizen Space
**NEW EVENT SPACE** Opening October 1st, 2013. Newly renovated 2,500 square foot private event space with private entrance next door. Available for day, evening, and weekend rentals for your event needs. Seating and tables available as well as A/V equipment and projector. Contact Us to Book Your Private Event!
Citizen Space is a coworking space first, but we do regularly host and rent out space out for events that enrich the community in our main space as well. Facilities include a large common area, configurable desks, digital projector and white screen, and kitchenette. If you’d like to use our space for your event, please make sure that your event attendees respect the personal space of our desk residents. You are responsible for your own setup and cleanup. Events such as training, discussion panels, demos, hackathons, meetups, author readings, etc. are welcome.
We don’t say yes to every event request for our main space as we prefer events that relate to San Francisco’s coworking and entrepreneurial community. Schedule and staffing resources may determine space availability.
