Downtown San Francisco is ground zero for startups. It's also home to some of the most coveted real estate in the country. Space, as always, is at a premium. So when online reservation site OpenTable invited us to its 50,000-square-foot IRL digs, we couldn't resist. With spaces that pay homage to restaurant vibes, the two-and-a-half floors occupied by about 300 employees are designed for maximum collaboration. The communal spaces generally serve many purposes from employee dining to impromptu meetings to guest demonstrations. "OpenTable deals with many different cuisines, lots of different styles of restaurants, so we wanted that variety reflected in the office," said OpenTable marketing svp Scott Jampol. "The various spaces are not expressly over-the-top themed—but each has its own style, its own feel. Different conversations work better in different spaces."
