Workplace by day, live music venue by night?

Affinity Lab coworking, Adams Morgan, Washington DC

Yesterday I highlighted ‘those lucky Macromedia employees’, but they got nothing on those who work at the Affinity Lab, or should I say work and play… and rock…

The topmost images show the ‘Lab’ (as it is affectionately called) by day, with over a dozen or so entrepreneurs working on their own businesses at their own workspaces around a common ‘living room’ (with kitchen.) ‘Lab members’ commonly collaborate on projects, and every so often they gather for birthdays, goodbyes, politically incorrect discussions…

At night the lab hosts events at least twice a month – happy hours, movie nights, silent auction here, fashion show there, but last Saturday night, lab co-founder Robbe Richman took the workplace where no one has taken it before – it not only became a live music venue with a live band (complete with bouncer at the door), but with a karaoke twist. That’s right, the audience provided the singing talent (and sometimes even the musical talent), and it was a smashing success.

At the dawn of the experience economy, people were witnessing the future of entertainment in multiple facets, and you know what? Word from attendees is that it was one of the best parties they’ve ever been to. Since I ‘work’ at the lab as well, I’m hoping this event was the ‘first annual’ – are you listening Robbe?
