Beyond the traditional uses of Coworking Spaces

Beyond the traditional uses of Coworking Spaces

People often view a coworking space as a location with a collection of offices, open seating, dedicated desks, conference rooms, and phone booths. Overlooked in the traditional view of coworking spaces are the non-traditional uses.

Many co-working spaces are versatile and can be used for reasons other than the uses listed above. Why not plan a birthday celebration for your kids or family members? A cake decorating class? Why not?

Read on to see some of the less-obvious uses of co-working spaces

Meetup Groups looking for a venue to hold their meetings. Meetup groups that typically meet indoors such as programming groups, marketing groups, and recovery groups.

Book Clubs in need of something more private than the local coffee shop or library

Beyond the traditional uses of Coworking Spaces

Wedding Rehearsals to avoid the often expensive use of a wedding facility. Let’s face it, weddings are big business (and costly). Why spends thousands on the rehearsal? Use that money for your honeymoon! Hawaii here we come!

Beyond the traditional uses of Coworking Spaces - Wedding rehearsal

Church Groups – Sundays are typically slow in most coworking spaces. Queue up the church groups!
Pinball Tournaments – on the weekend when the coworking spaces have easy 1st-floor access to move machines in and out for a weekend tournament
Video Shoots particularly if the coworking spaces have access to a green screen and are decorated nicely.
Cake Decorating Classes – if you have a good-sized kitchen and plenty of counter space, this can be an attractive option for you
Yoga Classes – our conference rooms can accommodate small Yoga classes
Meeting with your CPA – Maybe your CPA works from their home office? The two of you can meet in a small conference room in a coworking space to find out just how large your refund will be. And if you end up owing a lot of money to the government, there’s a chance that a therapist and/or financial planner may also be using the same co-working space…..so there, you’re covered.
Meeting with your Accountant – Tax planning and preparing tax returns for individuals and businesses. Sometimes this task is better handled in person instead of a long thread of email between you and your accountant. The Ray Room is perfect for this type of meeting.
MDs, Nurse Practitioners, NMD most coworking spaces, although typically a communal type of experience can also allow for privacy. Enough of it to be HIPAA compliant.

Video Shoots – The Works can easily be an “Office environment” for your next video shoot. Green screen available.
