Can I just drop in, or do I need to reserve space?

You can drop in, no Workplace reservations, needed. You can drop in as a member or as a nonmember guest.

Are there conference rooms available?
Yes. Gather Rooms are available to members and non-member guests. It's best to reserve ahead of time. Food-and-beverage service is available to anyone booking a Gather Room at an additional cost.
Can I run my business from Lodgic Workplace?
Yes. There are some limitations. Industrial and retail operations don’t work, but most professional business types can operate at Lodgic. Private mailboxes and other amenities are available for small businesses who choose Lodgic for their home base.
Is there a corporate or enterprise membership (without having a Workplace office)?
Absolutely! We’re working on the details now. Stay tuned.
Can members invite visitors, customers, and clients?
Yes. The more committed your membership level, the more Visitor Passes you get.
Are there mailboxes?
Yes. Mailboxes are included with offices, extra for other memberships.
Are there lockers?
Yes. There are Workplace lockers and there are locker room shower lockers.
Can I bring my dog to work?
We're still working on this one. The answer is likely going to be no. A lot of coworking spaces allow dogs, however Lodgic also has a full food-service kitchen, so the presence of pets presents complications.
Is that a real campfire indoors?
Come and see for yourself.

Kids camp

What does flexible, on-demand childcare mean?
It means you can drop in with no advance planning or reservations. Children may stay for as little as one hour or as long as twelve hours.
Is Kids Camp open on nights and weekends?
Yes, till 9pm on weekdays, till 10pm on Fridays and Saturdays. Closed Sundays.
What will Kids Camp hours be?
Weekdays 6:30am to 9pm, to 10pm on Fridays. Saturdays from 9am to 10pm. Closed Sundays.
No reservations needed? How do I know Kids Camp won't be full when I need it?
Try it and see. After caring for kids for over a hundred years, we've learned a thing or two. Lodgic Kids Camp turns the typical childcare model upside down and is always fully staffed. In the unlikely moment that our licensed capacity might be maxed, you may have to wait five or ten minutes for a spot to open up again. If this rare scenario happens, we'll try to make sure your wait is pleasant, with something tasty from the Clever Moose Market Cafe.
Can anybody use Lodgic Kids Camp?
Yes. You have to enroll in an annual membership first. Once your paperwork and health forms are complete, you can drop in any time, no reservations needed. Be sure to plan ahead before your very first visit.
Drop in? How will my child join the stream of activity?

The Kids Camp daily curriculum routine is specially designed so that kids can come and go with ease. Teachers introduce every child to the group and welcome each child into the current stage of the current activity. If they're in the middle of an activity or near the end it's no problem. At Kids Camp there's always another new activity starting in just a short while.

What if my child is shy or doesn't want to participate in an activity?
Teachers work hard to integrate the children at their speed and comfort. Sometimes kids prefer to be alone for awhile. Teachers give special attention to children who want a little extra time to join in, or who just need some quiet book or play time.
How do meals and snacks work?
Nutritious meals are chef-prepared fresh and delivered directly from our on-site kitchen. Menus will be posted. Meals are served at 7am, 12pm, and 6pm. Snacks are served at approximately 10am, 3pm, and 7:30pm. Your child will be served a meal or a snack if he/she is present during our regular meal time or snack time. Meals and snacks are automatically tracked and conveniently added to your hourly drop-in fees. Meals are $5, and snacks are $3.
Can my child bring their own meals and snacks?
No, but if your child needs a special dietary meal due to allergies, illness, food sensitivities, or religious purposes, accommodations can be made.
When will Lodgic Kids Camp open?
Until our licensing application process is complete, the State of Illinois requires that we cannot advertise an opening date. Sign up to be notified when memberships become available.

Restaurants

Do you need to be a member to eat at the restaurants?
No. Everyday Kitchen and Clever Moose are regular public eateries just like any other restaurant, bar, or cafe. Dine at Lodgic whenever our doors are open, seven days a week!
Two restaurants? What's the difference?
Clever Moose Market Cafe is an all-day, on-the-go, family friendly spot for coffee, juices, salads, sandwiches, and nourishing delights fresh-made daily. The Everyday Kitchen Restaurant and Bar is an upscale spitfire grill great for business lunches, hearty meals, cocktails, and date nights.
Can I work from the cafe or restaurant for free without using the coworking space?
Yes. If you decide you want to upgrade and move into Workplace, a Half-Day Guest Pass is just $20. If you decide to become a member, your paid Guest Pass fees can credit toward your Annual Membership fee.
