A new website hopes to make it easy to hunt for decidedly non-bland meeting space in D.C. Peerspace just launched today in Washington, connecting folks hunting for event space for parties, meetings, photo shoots, workshops and more with local hosts who are willing to rent by the hour.

The site has an Airbnb kind of look to it, since you can browse through professionally-photographed venues and narrow in by date, location and occasion. Peerspace also launched today in Atlanta and Boston, which brings the company’s footprint to nine major markets.

The spaces available to rent in the D.C. area on Peerspace run the gamut from that amazing technicolor church-turned-arts-space in Southwest to the Sixth & I synagogue. Here are a few more of the unique spaces available to rent out by the hour:

An Alexandria studio
An arts house
Co-working loft in Adams Morgan
U Street art studio
