For the generation of “I have an idea for an app” turned CEO’s, offices are so passé. In an ideal world, we’d all have decadent work spaces with our names hanging on the biggest office door, but the reality is, start ups require a lot of sacrifice, and office space is usually to go (when you look at rent prices in this city, it’s not hard to understand why). Here are 6 cafes in the city you can shoot back a double espresso, catch free wifi and get to work.
A classic coffee joint with locations all over the city, free wifi and delicious smoothies and doughnuts. If you like some hustle and bustle when you work to keep the energy up, this is the spot for you.
Long wooden communal tables, an ‘anything-you-could-want’ kind of menu, this spot is cozy, open and great for making connections.
The vibes in this eccentric, boho cafe are perfect for when you need some extra inspiration (say, writer’s block), or for the days you need an escape from reality. Try one of their swinging chairs and you might never leave.
Location: 116 Suffolk St, New York
If you’re ever rushing to meet a deadline and need to work without distraction, this wifi-free shop is the place to concentrate. With an endless amount of seating, cool vibes and brewed coffee on tap (that’s right), La Colombe doesn’t just make coffee, they live it.
By far the coolest coffee shop you’ll ever work from and worth the trip to Brooklyn, we promise. Best part is, if you stay around long enough it turns into a party, and once you’ve worked that hard, you’ll deserve a drink (or two).
Location: 45 S 3rd St, Brooklyn
Stumptown Coffee Roasters
Located in New York’s famous, Ace Hotel, this coffee shop is nothing like the rest of them with USB enabled tables, a posh yet laid back space and seriously good, fair-trade coffee. You can easily spend a whole day here (or night with a hotel room just a few steps away).
Location: 18 W 29th St, New York
