You want to chill, discuss, or work in small groups. But the main room is occupied: There are simply too many people at your space. Or you want to smoke a cigarette at the space without disturbing non-smokers.
Look for a hackerspace with smaller, separate rooms. Use curtains or doors to separate them from the main room. Separate rooms can also be used for smokers in a non-smoking hackerspace.
