Over this last weekend I was lucky enough to find myself in St. Louis, Missouri. Some of my favorite places in the universe are there, the city museum being one that pops into mind most frequently. I realized I had never toured a hackerspace in St. Louis though!
A quick phone call to Arch Reactor remedied this. Even though it was Easter Sunday, they came down and gave me a tour. The space was quite nice with a lounge area, electronics workstations, fabrication tools and a complete wood shop. On top of the hackerspace’s pleasant atmosphere, the building also includes a fun little art-bike group called the Banana Bike Brigade, and even has a roof-top bar made from reclaimed materials. For those of you who are into cars, in the bike shop there were several nice corvairs and a porsche 911 that appeared to be mid 80s.
If you ever get a chance to stop by, you should definitely try to visit Arch Reactor.
