Private Events

Holding your private event at The Space is perfect for any function from celebrations and social networking to presentations and seminars. Our space is rich with quality artworks created by Bay Area artists. An event at The Space will have the creative edge to inspire and make a memorable experience. 

 

CONVENIENT
Located just off Park St in Downtown Alameda, The Space is one story above street level and offers an open 1,800 sq ft gallery. Our exhibited art collection changes at least once monthly ensuring your events will always be fresh and unique. 

 

DIFFERENT (IN A GOOD WAY)
Chances are the boring hotel banquet room or the newest crowded bar are not the vibe you want for your event. By hosting your event at The Space you get the best of both, and set the cool and intimate tone for a special evening. Located above the ground floor, The Space offers an intimate environment that encourages meandering, but is not so big as to lose guests. 

 

SUPPORT THE ARTS
The paintings of some of the Bay Area’s most talented young artists grace the walls of The Space, stimulating your guest's senses and encouraging discussion. You already know the benefit of fine art- share that passion with your guests. 

 

READY TO HELP
To ensure a smooth event, a member is always on site and available to answer any questions about The Space and artworks on display.
