Trivium Games bringing “Escape Room” to San Pablo Avenue

One thing of note from the City’s December Progress Report included the approval of a conditional use permit for a “Trivium Games.” The permit was approved at the Andante Condominiums retail space at 3996 San Pablo Avenue. Andante will also be the home to Emeryville’s second cannabis dispensary.

According to their website, Trivium creates adventure games where players are placed in an “escape room” and must solve a series of interactive puzzles and challenges within the time allotted. The East Bay Express recently detailed how these escape rooms are growing in popularity calling them “the next frontier in gaming.”


They intend to cater to corporate team building and other groups and are expected to open to the public this fall.

Perfect Day, who created a sustainable animal-free dairy alternative, have leased the space at 1485 Park Avenue vacated by Plum Organics. Plum was acquired by Campbells in 2013 and recently moved their offices to the Campbell’s Headquarters in Camden, New Jersey. Perfect Day previously operated out of neighboring Berkeley.

Perfect Day uses microflora and an age-old fermentation technique to make dairy protein that is said to be identical to what cows make naturally. They recently raised $34.7 million in Series B venture capital.
