Neyborly: Poet's Corner was custom-designed from the ground up by local artisans and artists to be a high-end event space for the Bay Area. We took everything we learned from our success at our first location to create this truly unforgettable event space.

This new location is truly a undiscovered gem in the East Bay arts and community scene. The space is 3,500 square feet of beautiful large skylights, tons of exposed brick, steel beams, and old timber. The space has been recently renovated by the Neyborly design team and we have built in everything we can think of with the finest detail into this project.

We've hosted more than a hundred special events and celebrations of all types and I'm happy to work with you to customize the space to fit your specific event needs. We have seven handcrafted, designer tables and seating for up to 75 people at a time. A few of the tables are 12 foot long tables that can be linked together to create a single 36 foot community table to seat 50 people together at once! We can add additional furniture (not included) to increase seating capacity to 120 people. 

Neyborly: Poet's Corner supports local artists and features gorgeous handcrafted tables, fine art, and decor that all created by local Bay Area residents. By booking with us you enable us to keep the exhibits completely free for our local creative residents to showcase and sell their amazing work. So thank you!

We provide a high-end professional music venue system, wireless LED customized lighting, an HD cinema projector, 200" movie screen, custom built photobooth studio with vintage props, a catering room, smart locks, a high-end laptop, and most importantly, some of the best customer service and event support you will find.

The A/V package comes complete with a dedicated A/V technician along with all the equipment (speakers, microphones, stage, projector, movie screen) for $200 flat.

Neyborly: Poet's Corner is located in the West Berkeley neighborhood. West Berkeley is an up-and-coming part of the East Bay that is full of young families, artists, and technology companies.

There is street-parking available, both metered and non-metered...and best of all the venue is extremely accessible from the freeways and highways (right of I-80!).

I know you will love this place! We'll do everything we can to make sure your event is a hit.

Thanks so much,
The Neyborly Team

We have great catering partnerships for food and/or alchohol if you're interested! You may bring in any food you like. You may bring your own catering service as well. 

You will be responsible for any significant damage done to the facilities or products in the space. Normal wear and tear, however, is not a problem.
