QUESTIONS? WE GOT ANSWERS.

IS INNOVATION HALL A COWORKING SPACE?

Innovation Hall is not a coworking space. We offer free, public workspace in our lounge Monday through Friday from 8am-5pm on a first-come, first-serve basis. Occasionally we close for private events. To stay up to date on our lounge hours, sign up for our newsletter at the bottom of this page and follow #ihloungehours on social media!

DO I NEED TO PAY/BECOME A MEMBER TO USE INNOVATION HALL’S PUBLIC WORKSPACE?

Nope! There is no cost to use our public workspace (or as we call it, our “lounge”), no matter how often you are here (which means come every day).

Our private rooms have hourly rates associated with them, but we have a cost reduction process and discount over $1 million in event space fees annually. Learn more about our event FAQs here.
