This is our building! It's short in the front, long in the back. A great mullet for happy hackers! Currently this is the sixth iteration of Vancouver Hack Space, and one of the largest we've been able to inhabit so far. We're truly excited for all the great projects we can get started on now that we have this building.
We're located at 1601 Venables St., at the corner of Woodland Drive, 2 blocks West of Commercial Drive. The front door is normally locked to the public, but keyholders voluntarily open the space to other members. Our open house nights are always on Tuesdays 7:30-10:30pm, where we welcome the community to come down, say hi, and work on a project.
