The Co-op Commons consists of the room and balcony spaces upstairs at the Co-op. It is open to members and customers during the Co-op’s operating hours and a great space to meet with friends, enjoy our free WiFi or enjoy a bite to eat with panoramic views of Eastsound.
The central location also makes it an ideal meeting space. If you do not mind other customers continuing to use the room, feel free to use our conference table to have meetings.
The conference table can be reserved for events, workshops, classes, lectures and meetings. However, the Commons cannot be reserved for events between the hours of 11:00am and 4:00pm as we wish to keep it open for customers and casual meet-ups or events during the busiest part of the day.
Below is our Co-op calendar of events. Prior to submitting please double check that no other events are scheduled in the Co-op Commons at the time you are requesting.

How large of an event can I host? The Commons can accommodate approximately 30 people
How far in advance must I reserve the room? With more advanced notice, we are more likely to be able to accommodate your needs. Generally at least one week is preferred, but it never hurts to ask!
