Co-working in Menlo Park?

Tony Rajakumar Founder/CEO at SnugBoo

Hey everyone - I was wondering if there were cool co-working spaces in
Menlo people can recommend. I really like Hacker Dojo in M View, and was
wondering if there\'s something similar in Menlo. Looking for a crowd of
techno-creatives/founders to hang out with once in a while.

Thanks...

While we\'re on the subject, would love recommendations for SF as well.
There seem to be dozens of them around the city, but wondering whether
anyone has specific ones with a strong community and inspiring people.
Located in SOMA would be a plus!

Keisha, I recommend checking out DC Nightowls (http://nightowls.dcacm.org/).
You\'ll get some exposure to local coworking spaces and a great in-person
community. A few names of coworking spaces are: Dupont Circle Business
Incubator, Canvas.co, UberOffices, PunchRock (new), Work District (new),
and the old mainstay, Affinity Lab. There\'s a few more listed on another
community site: http://foster.ly/guide/post/co-working

I\'m currently working out of NextSpace in SF, which I enjoy. Aside
from having a strong community and inspiring people, and being located
in SOMA, they also get all of the details right (comfortable seats,
plentiful outlets, fast wifi, plentiful ethernet ports, tall table
that can be used as a standing desk, nice atmosphere, etc.). It\'s a
great place to work.

WeWork on 2nd Street (between Mission and Howard) seems to be a good
option. My wife has an office there and they seem to do a good job
building a community. Not sure if they have any available space currently.
If you call them, ask for Chia and tell her I sent you...might help a
little.

I would be interested in a Menlo Park recommendation as well, as we are
about to relocate the family down there from SF.

Also totally interested in Menlo / Redwood City. My son\'s school is near
there and it would be great to have a place to co-work near his school.

Just catching up to the threads. The Tech Shop in Menlo Park has a lot of
coders/founders. There is also http://www.siliconvalleypad.com - but it
seems more shared office than co-working. Coupa always has hackishness
going on.

Even with these solutions closer to home, I\'m still writing this from the
dojo. If you find -it-, please let me know.

And in DC while you\'re at it. I know of a few cool ones, but pricey!

I\'m working at The Hatchery on 2nd St. Definitely not a strong community, but it\'s nice and close to Caltrain and Muni. They have a location on Harrison St. which may be better because it\'s wide open, but I doubt it. Seems like more of a real-estate mindset than a startup mindset.

It would be a lot cheaper if you merely purchased a single license for PDEC
and updated gravity with the new number.
