Why is BEAHIVE spelled funny?

It’s a cute reference to Beacon, NY (Bea-hive, Bea-con…). The original Beahive opened in 2009 in the heart of Beacon’s Main St in the iconic 1907 Telephone Building.

Over the years we’ve swarmed multiple locations. Membership gives you access to all, so you’ll have multiple the community.

Our hives (except studio annexes) are places to work and convene and are infused with thoughtful but unpretentious design.

They’re available to rent for events, workshops and group meetings — either for a fee or for free, depending on the nature of the event.

Dormant Hives

ALBANY

Our Albany hive opened in early 2012 in Downtown Albany in the Capital Region. We exited the city late 2023 after 11+ years.

KINGSTON

Our second hive closed in 2012 and re-opened in 2015 in The Lace Mill, an affordable housing complex for artists. We left in late 2016.

PEEKSKILL

We swarmed to the ol’ Pugsley Building, newly renovated as The Flatz, in 2015. We left that winter to refocus our energies on swarming other cities.
