A space designed to enlighten, inspire and unite.
The UE Watering Hole is a place where employees come together to collaborate, innovate, or relax at the end of the day with a pint of hosted Ballast Point beer. The area is centered around a communal tractor table, created from a salvaged California excavator tread. This space is our lunch spot by day, and as happy hour rolls around it turns into the spot to grab a cold one.
The Bunker is our most “underground” space, with a Speakeasy vibe and reclusive location. Hidden below a set of retractable stairs, this room functions as a meeting space or private party room for up to 30 people.
