  • Digital projector and screen
  • PA and drum set
  • Wifi access
  • Adjustable baseboard heat and AC
  • Restroom (unfortunately not wheelchair accessible)

Space Use Guidelines


The Other Side is a small non-profit with no paid staff, so all of our income goes directly into keeping our doors open so others may use the space.

We offer flexible rates depending on a number of factors including (but not limited to):

  • Hours/days of use
  • Purpose of use
  • How much we need to help you
  • Level of event promotion
  • Experience booking events


  • Generally our Full Events Calendar reflects the availability of our space. Please check there first to see if a date and time is available
  • For louder events like shows, the space has quiet hours after 9 on weekdays and after 10 on weekends
