Droplabs is growing and we're scouting locations for a new Droplabs on the Westside. I've lined up a tour of several spaces within walking distance of the Venice Grind (the first-ever venue of our High Performance Drupal meetups!) on Wednesday, July 9, 2014. Join us!

We'll be meeting at 2:30pm the Venice Grind at 12224 Venice Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90066. We'll have a chance to meet one another and then begin our tour at 3:30pm. The Venice Grind has paid parking on the street and free parking in back.

   Meet and greet at the Venice Grind

   First walk through on Grand View Blvd.

   Second walk through on Venice Blvd.

   Happy hour at Killer Shrimp in Marina Del Rey

   Third and final walk through at Mariners Bay Business Center

In its three years of operation, Droplabs has seen thousands of Drupal developers pass through its doors. We've hosted countless events, including the Downtown Drupal meetup, several Drupal job fairs, the 14-part Drupal Module Development Boot Camp, and even the Drupal Design Camp LA 2012 conference. In 2013, we were recognized by Drupical as the Top Drupal Location in the world.

If you're interested in a place where creative and technical people gather for Drupal coworking every day and the occasional Drupal meetup and Drupal After Dark at night, then join us and help make this happen!

Hi christefano, I am not sure how big a venue you need but my apartment complex in Marina del Rey has a conference room with seating for about a dozen people, a few computers, a printer/fax and of course internet access.

It's behind a restaurant called Killer Shrimp and there's plenty of free parking.

Just thought I offer it to you. I think the room sits unused most of the time.


Ali! Thanks for sharing the

Ali! Thanks for sharing the good news and for the phone call earlier today. I'll follow up with a few suggested times when we can get together and check out the space together.

If I'm not mistaken, this is at the Mariner's Bay Business Center and I've been trying to get over there for a while. This space is being used by the Marina Del Rey Developer Meetup group:

Yes, you are correct. It's the "business center". I went by again and counted 13 table seating and 4 love seats. There is also wifi, besides the Ethernet that is connected to the 3 PCs.

I asked the office and they said there is no need to reserve the space. First come, first serve. Every time I've been in there, it was either empty or there were one or two people.

The best thing is the free parking (and plentiful during weekdays).

Our broker just emailed to say he's double-booked for part of Wednesday afternoon. I'm waiting on more details.

In the meantime, I've already budgeted time to be at the Venice Grind so we can still meet over coffee and discuss a Westside location for Droplabs even if the broker has to postpone for next week.

I'm updating the event details here so that we're meeting at 2:30 instead of 1pm. I hope this still works for everyone.
