Who We Are

The Alexandria exists to be a literal and figurative meeting point for the life sciences world. A bricks and mortar central location for great minds to convene, a symbolic place for creative collisions to occur, and an exchange of wild ideas to ensue.

Our Story

The Alexandria is the crossroads for The Alexandria Center for Life Sciences (ACLS) community. A members-only club that welcomes all of the ACLS tenants and that extends an open invitation for all others to join and actively engage in making a positive and meaningful impact on our world.

How Our Journey Began

The idea for a private club at ACLS was born of a desire to connect people with common interests in a social club set in the heart of Silicon Valley's hub for science and technology. Invited and Alexandria Real Estate Equities have already successfully partnered in bringing together entrepreneurs and creatives in an energetic environment at The Collective in Seattle's South Lake Union cluster. With The Alexandria at San Carlos, the team saw the opportunity to create a space that blended the surrounding nature of the tidal marshlands with the buzzing hub of innovation the area is known for.

Our Space

Our dynamic space in the heart of San Carlos is a place of comfort and community, with productivity zones, quiet enclaves and plenty of spots for socializing and coming together. We looked to the tidal marshlands for inspiration in creating a space that is both tranquil and engaging, so you can come to both relax and innovate.

The Experience

We are about connecting people who want to live life to the fullest through shared meals, shared experiences and a commitment to growing and improving themselves and our world.



I Hear The Capital Club Is Part Of The Same Club Network, Is This Something I Can Access?

  • You heard right! The Capital Club is our sister club here in Silicon Valley, and we're excited to announce a Membership option that gives you access to both. Dual Membership is an up upgrade to your complimentary Tenant membership for $65/month (month-to-month).

What Are Some Of The House Rules? Kids allowed?

  • Sure, just not in the Bar or the Fitness area. We find kids are most excited about kid-specific programs, rather than just hanging around the space (stay tuned for programming calendar)!

Pets allowed?

  • Love them, but sadly, The Alexandria is not conducive to those with four legs (or wings).

Is there a dress code?

  • Be comfortable, be you. We ask that members and guests do not wear cutoff jeans or jeans with large holes or rips.

  • Not just allowed, but welcomed and invited.

  • Dining and social

    • Members may bring along groups up to five. Please let us know if you'd like to entertain a larger group.

Food & Beverage

May I Get Food To Go?

  • Absolutely! Salt + Brine has pre-packaged eats, ready to refuel your life on the go. Menu items are prepared for your daily hustle. Order to go as often as you like.

Is Food + Drink Available All Day?

  • Great food and drink, as a matter of fact! Coffee, juice, kombucha, wine, beer and spirits too, all offered at a fair price. Whether you fancy a quick work lunch, shared plates, an eclectic dinner out, or anything in between, food + drink are at your fingertips morning, noon, and night at The Alexandria.

  • We strive for local and sustainable; much respect to our farmers and producers. Be on the lookout for posh toasts, breakfast burritos, and Insta-worthy desserts.


How Much Do The Programs Cost?

  • The price of these programs will vary. For example, if we hire an awesome yoga teacher, you may have to pay for the class. If a Circle hosts a book club, it’s probably free. The goal for these programs is to provide unique offerings and create a community inside (and sometimes outside) the walls of The Alexandria. Every program is designed to be of value.


What If I Want To Have An Event At The Alexandria?

  • Reach out and talk to our team at banquetevents@thealexandriasancarlos.com, we have a solid variety of options and a few tricks up our sleeve to help you host.


Can I Keep My Items In a Locker Outside Of My Workout Time?

  • Unfortunately, due to limited locker space, lockers can only be used while you workout. Daily sweeps are conducted, and any items recovered can be picked up with our Fitness staff.
