Purpose Over Profit

We're a non-penuciary club, meaning our revenue supports improvements to the communal space and functional management of the club. Any additional proceeds generated via club activities will be donated to organizations, creative projects, and causes that advance the ideals we support.

How to Join

To become a member, you must submit a written application and be democratically approved by the board of directors.

Member Criteria & Review

Age, gender, education, political beliefs have no bearing in who can become a HappyPlace member. We only pick folks who are not douchecannons based on a complicated algorithm and gut-instincts. But really though, this should be about how someone needs to be likeminded and willing to contribute and use the space respectfully, etc.

After a six-month probationary period the board will review your membership and determine if you should be subject to the street-gang bleed-in ritual out back in our alleyway. Goodluck.

Members Only

Coworking

The Happy Place offers a coworking experience unlike anywhere else. We are a dog-friendly space with giraffe-height ceilings, a neon-sign mural, musical ambiance, and occasional ping-pong skirmishes. This is coworking for creative workers and critical thinkers who don’t care about fuddy-duddy office antics. As long as you’re respectful, you can be as comfortable as you damn well please.
