UCLA’s Hammer Museum sits right at the edge of the school’s Westwood campus and hosts art exhibitions, performances including both musicians and literary readings, and lectures, among other public programming. In addition to its artistic offerings, it’s one of the bet places in the city to work – the courtyard features free WiFi, which you can enjoy while sipping a beverage from the Hammer Café.
