Meetings and Events


Minor Oak can host meetings, workshops and events for both members and non-members. There are three options:

  1. the meeting room,
  2. the flexible use space, and
  3. the ground floor, which includes both the flexible use space and the meeting room.

Note: The mezzanine is available as a quiet work area for key-holding coworking members to use 24/7. Key holders can enter and exit through the side door across from the stairs, so they will not interfere with events happening in the flexible use area and/or meeting room.

We have an unusual offer that can save you hundreds: you pay for use of the space, but you can bring in your own catering and alcoholic drinks.
