With remote working and flexible schedules becoming almost as common as a traditional 9-to-5 schedule, it’s no wonder co-working spaces and members’ clubs devoted to getting work done are popping up in cities around the world. Here are the seven best places for taking care of business in NYC.

The best co-working spaces in New York from the affordable to the eco-aware and insanely cool…

Dumbo House

Soho House’s Brooklyn location is airy, bright, spacious… a winning combination for getting work done. In classic Soho House style, there are cushy couches and armchairs scattered throughout the main room for comfortably shooting off emails, as well as big tables for when you feel the need to spread out a load of documents or have a meeting. On warmer days, sit at the square outdoor bar overlooking the downtown Manhattan skyline as you type away.

Spring Place

A members’ club with a strong work ethic, focus and productivity are tangible here. Located in TriBeCa, Spring Place is a large space with amenities directed towards group projects or individuals who need a long-term place to work that’s not a typical office. With a library, executive boardroom, private offices and rentable resident desks, this is a one-of-a-kind space for getting serious work done. There are also a number of areas scattered across Spring that feel more fun and relaxed, such as the “sunken living room”, kitted out in deep crimson velvet, and the pink lounge-style music room. For entertaining guests and clients, nothing beats the marble-topped bar or sleek private-dining room. Membership pricing is steeper here, so it’s certainly an investment but worth it for those who can use it as their primary workspace.

The Farm

The Farm offers “hot desks” for solo workers as well as entrepreneurs with small teams who need full floor spaces for their start-ups. Beyond its versatility, the space was built with the aim of helping freelancers and independent workers feel relaxed and connected to nature, and is made up of the pieces of a hundred-year-old barn from Southern Missouri. The reclaimed wood and brick spaces in both SoHo and Nomad cater to all working needs for decent prices, and visitors can buy day passes for £22. Another plus, pets are welcome to join their owners while they work, making scheduling dog walkers and hurrying home a thing of the past.

11 Howard

SoHo’s 11 Howard Hotel houses a number of cultural hotspots, including French eatery Le Coucou and the Blonde – a favourite for dancing into the early hours. Beyond its late-night activities, the hotel also has a gorgeous library area with a long table where you can stay all day long – or until you’re ready for a drink at the bar. The menu here is perfect for picking at – think acai bowls or avocado toast.

Neuehouse

Located on Madison Square, Neuehouse is a sexy, artistic space housed in the former Tepper Galleries. Styled to feel like a home (the home of your extremely chic friend, that is), Neuehouse maintains a perfect balance of comfort and sleekness to ensure you can curl up in an armchair to bang out some emails without actually falling asleep. Insider tip: head to ELEVEN, a floor dedicated to private studio, gallery and atelier spaces for groups and individual workers. The area also offers concierge services, showers and a wellness centre – and that’s in addition to the house’s other amenities, such as its Aesop apothecary and Linus bicycles.

The Wing

This women-only members’ club and workspace is one of the fastest growing of its kind. There are already five New York City spaces, outpacing Soho House. More than just a co-working space, The Wing focuses on networking, mentorship programs and events, and provides chic, colourful spaces to brainstorm and connect. With amenities like in-house showers, as well as pump rooms and creches in certain locations, The Wing is all about making life run a little smoother for its members. New Yorkers can choose from Bryant Park, Williamsburg, Flatiron, SoHo and Dumbo locations.

Green Desk

As the name suggests, this space has a laser focus on being eco-friendly. An affordable option with nine spaces throughout the city, Green Desk can be used for its office suites and meeting rooms, as well as retail and event spaces – whether you’d like to host a supper club in a loft or a pop-up for a clothing brand – that leave behind a smaller carbon footprint. Each location has a kitchen rather than a restaurant, helping to limit both food waste and your spending.
