The brainchild of Dallas advertising agency Greenlight, Howdo was created “to be a space where big ideas are born.”  

Located in a former warehouse in downtown Dallas’ Trinity Industrial District, the 3,500 square-foot space comes with all of the bells and whistles found in the city’s best meeting venues — a chef’s kitchen, state-of-the-art equipment, even a pool table — plus an “industrial-chic” design aesthetic all its own.

“Every inch of Howdo was designed intentionally,” says greenlight CEO and Founder Erik Herskind. “In our experience, a clean, white space has led to bigger, more inspired ideas. It has an industrial-but-chic feel with comfortable furniture and a handcrafted conference table made of wood and wrought iron to warm up the space.”

Not to be confused with the city’s growing number of coworking spaces, Howdo is is a flexile meeting space, ideal for everything from creative brainstorms to networking happy hours and corporate workshops. There are no membership fees or shared desks. Instead, you book the space as needed — for a half day ($600), a full day ($750), or by the hour ($50+).

Opt for a stocked fridge or a selection of “brain food” for $100 more. Need help crafting your event? Meeting planners are available for $250.

“Howdo doesn’t have a limit,” says Herskind. “We want this to be a space for bigger thinking. Because it’s flexible, guests can work with a planner to make their event happen.”

To really get the ideas flowing, all guests receive “a creative kit,” which includes a branded notebook, a pen, and a blank coaster that can be doodled on.

“We believe we’ve created a space that specifically fuels big thinking,” says Herskind. “It gives companies an alternative to more traditional and expected meeting venues.”
