St. Louis Hackerspace: Arch Reactor

Here at HackaDay, we are always a fan of a group of hackers coming together to create a place to share ideas, tools, parts, and stories. A group from St. Louis called Arch Reactor have managed to secure a new location, and are having their grand opening this Saturday. From 4-10pm on the 30th, they will be hosting an open house, and showing off both the area as well as some personal projects. We plan on being there to cover it, as well as support a hackerspace that is close to home for a couple of us.

They are located on the second floor of:

904 Cherokee St.
St Louis, MO 63118

and feel free to check out their location page, as well as their main web site.

Edit: Thanks to [kamikazejoe] from the Arch Reactor forums for pointing out the logo issue. Whoops.

    This is awesome, can’t wait.

  6. Odin84gk says:

    Excellent! I might be able to make that one. Are there any other spaces in St. Louis?

    I am located in cedar rapids, IA and have TONS of tools and love to tinker and hack, I have been looking for this very same thing but dont know how many people are in my area to determine if its possible to get a place. I would certainly be willing to share my experiences and tools if other people would be as well.

    I live about 15 minutes away from STL, but sadly I won’t be able to make it there on that night.

  10. Skitchin says:

    I’ll definitely try to make it!

    I’ve had my eye on this group for what seems like around a year, glad to see them finally coming together!

    An RSVP list would be nice but I see none, any other HAD’ers plan on going?

    O_o we just filed to open one as ARC Labs, names are to close now haha

  12. Kyle says:


    STL has needed something like this for a while. Maybe I can get some of these guys interested in packet radio locally. :)

  13. eigenmeister says:


    We’re in the organizing phase in Davenport, IA.
    There are rumors in Des Moines as well.

  14. SDC says:

    I’m in Bloomington, IN, but am still tempted to make a trip. Congrats to Arch Reactor for making it happen.

  15. SDC says:

    Also if any Indiana people are reading there is a hackerspace in the works in Bloomington.

  16. Tetsu says:

    I’m Tetsu from FAMiLab in Orlando/Central Florida. Props to Arch Reactor for getting set up! If any of you are in the Central Florida area, give us a holler ;)

  20. BizTechClub says:

    I’m apart of a club in the John Cook Business School at SLU called Biz Tech Club. We’re starting up the same type of club in an college environment. I’m looking forward to contacting and working with the Arch Reactor team and other high tech incubators on making St. Louis a beacon for innovation in the Midwest once again.

    Viva La Revolution
