Nighttime Restaurant Turns Into A Coworking Office By Day
A NYC startup will let you turn a fancy eatery into a shared workspace during the daytime
Spacious is a New York City startup that is converting restaurants into coworking spaces during the day, with its first hidden office in Daniel Boulard’s DBGB Kitchen & Bar in the East Village. Curious freelancers and nomads can try out their first visit free. An unlimited monthly membership to Spacious costs $95, while a day pass costs $29.
Users get unlimited free Wi-Fi, water, coffee and tea, good lighting and perhaps, good company. Members get a free guest for the first hour, with a $6 fee for every hour thereafter. There is no app required: users simply sign in at the iPad kiosk, and can come and go at will. The restaurant will issue a last call for coffee an hour before opening; Spacious users are free to stick around for dinner or head off for a drink. Restaurants can get a boost in traffic flow, and Spacious users get to access more “secret” offices in the city.
Thank you to our host Anomaly for making this event possible.
