"A Little Beacon Space"
Venue for Private Bookings
291 Main Street

A Little Beacon Space is the private office of A Little Beacon Blog, an online news publication serving the community of Beacon and beyond, and Tin Shingle, a training platform and community for business, artists and makers who are getting the word out about their business.

Located in the heart of downtown Beacon in the historically designated Telephone Building at 291 Main Street, A Little Beacon Space is inspiring to work from, and designed to be a connection point with people. Sunlight pours into the office in the morning from the eastern window, while you can look out on Main Street from our two storefront windows.

 
Renting this space was perfect for our small, creative company retreat. We had everything we needed to have a productive day, and the expectations were clearly laid out ahead of time in a transparent way. There’s great parking (not always a given in Beacon), and you’re in the thick of things when it comes to walking around after your event is over. 5/5, will retreat there again.

Workshops & Retreats

Arrange the furniture any way you need to. The room seats 22 and can fit a few more standing. A 75" projector on tripod is available to show your stuff.

Events

Pour the wine from our bar while your guests enjoy their time. A mini-fridge with icebox is in the room for your convenience, along with platters and plates.

Pop-Up Shops

Shopping from hard to find designers has been part of what makes Beacon special. A Little Beacon Blog is the first and only publication to offer a venue devoted to these stores.

I recently had a holiday pop-up at The Little Beacon Space and it exceeded my expectations! Katie and her staff were more than accommodating and helped make our weekend-long market a huge success. The central location meant tons of foot traffic from the train, while the and beautiful, open space meant minimal decorating and easy, effortless set up and break down. Having a ready-to-go bar was amazing. We provided the wine and beer which made our weekend into a fun party for our shoppers. Whenever we had a question or issue, the staff was 100% ready to answer and help. They were punctual, professional, and a pleasure to work with.
