Fine-tuning specific amenities
After you winnow that list down to properties in the area that are available on the date or dates of your event and how many people have RSVPed to attend, select or deselect amenities that the rental offers.
Some amenities offer chairs and tables, audio-visual equipment, and even coffee for your event. Others are more specific, like photography studios and restaurants that provide lighting and backdrops, industrial kitchens, and so forth.
All of these amenities are visible on the property’s detailed Peerspace listing. If you find need anything extra that the venue does not offer, check with your venue’s host.

Local people own the Peerspace venues you rent, another reason why it’s like Airbnb for events. In Peerspace’s case, a photographer may rent out their fully equipped studio at night when they’re not using it. Or chic restaurants and bars may rent out their spaces when they’re closed. Homeowners who have homes with unique features, like a huge backyard or exciting architecture, are also popular on Peerspace.
Renting from a real person in your community or destination city is a Peerspace perk. Many of our hosts are creatives who deck out their unique spaces to offer their fellow creatives a distinct space to work. Some of our event venues are even operated by event planners who are happy to help you plan and execute your event as much as you like. They can be as hands-on as you need.
