Yes this is the “drink” section of the site but really it’s about way more than that. We designed this place from the ground up around the idea that people coming together in a fun and comfortable environment are naturally more energized and creative. Great food, highly caffeinated coffee, craft beers, good design and lively music it’s ALL part of the plan, it’s the fuel of invention and great ideas.
Proto has a full coffee and espresso bar as well as unique sodas and juices for the little makers. Older, wiser guests (+21) will enjoy a great selection of craft beers, wine and select bourbons. We also feature snacks, fresh pastries and hot or cold sandwiches prepared fresh, so you can stay stoked and focused on creating from the crack of dawn until last call.
That’s cool—we have lots of other interesting things to do and see like free wifi, creative books and magazines, great music and comfortable seating to hang out with a few friends. And let’s not forget the Guinness World Record Largest Claw Game ever. And yes, you can play it!
Proto isn’t your typical maker/hacker space. There are no membership fees or commitments or resident cliques. It’s an inviting and welcoming place for people of all ages and backgrounds. New technology can at times be intimidating enough, the last thing you need is some shop rat trying to out geek you or tell you you’re doing it all wrong.
We call Proto an experience center for a reason, because our sole focus is on ensuring that each and every person that passes through our door has an amazing technology and creative experience. We co-exist, collaborate and work together whether middle-schooler, punk rocker, young engineer or retired grandma.
We are all here for the same reasons—to learn, grow and create all while having a great time and loving the process.
