A minimalist, sustainable approach to gathering at The Assembly
The Assembly is the perfect mix between a modernized community workspace and a cafe. While you collaborate with colleagues and clients, the staff work to support your engagements by serving coffee, fresh juices, and healthy, delectable snacks.
Every item served at this cafe is sustainably and ethically sourced from its commercial partners. Management's goal here is to provide a space where innovation can thrive, but not at the expense of the local or global community's social, environmental, and economic impact.
It's the perfect space to secure a moment of peace, order, and quiet away from West Hollywood's constant bustling.
Even the interior design is consciously curated to encourage concentration throughout your meeting, given the minimalist design, natural color palette, and modest succulent collection. There are no crazy paintings or wild color schemes to draw your attention away from work.
It's best to schedule your meeting here during the weekdays, as these are the calmest times of the business day. The maximum time that most people spend is about two hours due to parking. As long as you're there, the free Wi-Fi and available outlets will help keep you on task.

Another location that offers outdoor dining, Cecconi's is a favorite meeting spot in West Hollywood. Here, you can enjoy the fresh air and spectacular plants while catching up with loved ones or going over work tasks with your coworkers.
Most people choose this venue primarily for lunch meetings with prospective clients and colleagues. However, you can easily select a visiting time that allows for a more casual feel.
