Looking for an alternative to the crowded coffee shop? Don't want to host in your own home? Bespeak Studios is a dedicated meeting space that combines the comforts of home (including full kitchen!) with the convenience of a meeting room. It’s the perfect spot to hold client meetings, teach workshops, launch pop-up shops, host community dinners, and… [add your idea here!] We offer affordable space for groups of two and more to come together to share the ideas, knowledge, and projects that they’re passionate about. Nestled on a tree-lined street in Chicago’s north Lincoln Park neighborhood, Bespeak Studios is recognizable for the whimsical horses painted on the exterior, buttercup-yellow front door, and welcoming storefront windows. Step inside and you’ll find comfy areas to lounge in and areas to get down to business. In designing the space, we took care to preserve many unique features of the existing interior while making thoughtful updates, with the goal to transform the whole into an inviting environment perfectly suited to collaboration, creativity, and community. Bespeak Studios packs a lot of versatility in its 1,000+ square feet, organized in these configurable meeting areas: THE STOREFRONT (EAST & WEST) Situated on either side of the entrance, these two areas are filled with natural light from the large windows and can accommodate up to 8 guests on each side at tables or comfy couches. THE ENTIRE PLACE Host an event for up to 45 people by taking over the whole space! For details on seating arrangements, get in touch. THE LONG HALL This central space can seat 30-plus—either around long tables pushed together for a workshop/classroom setup, as well as for brainstorming sessions, networking sessions, and meals. THE OPEN OFFICE Located toward the back of the space, this open area can seat up to 12 guests at conference tables or a circle of chairs. THE LOFT Head up the stairs and make yourself and your group (up to 6) comfortable lounging on the chaise or occupying one of the chairs. Note: This area has a low ceiling. THE KITCHEN Bespeak Studios features a full kitchen with gas stove and double sink—perfect for cooking classes as well as business meals, potluck lunches and dinners, and meal prep by local caterers.
