Going by the number of up and coming businesses and budding entrepreneurs in the area, we could stretch our arms and would be likely to hit a startup or two, we aren’t surprised Koramangala is already described as the ‘startup hub’ of the city. Going along with this recent title, the neighbourhood also has a fair share of co-working spaces, all to add to the ecosystem. Offering everything from high-speed Wi-Fi to game zones, these workspaces are a welcome break from the regular offices or even the buzzing cafes. LBB picks out some of the buzzing co-working spaces in Koramangala.

Perfect for those who can’t stand cramped cubicles and offices, BHiVe has an airy space done up in white with quirky artworks on the walls, lending it a cheery vibe. When you need a break from all that work, there’s bean bags and even a swing in the balcony to lounge about in. What makes it all the more appealing is the talks and community events that happen every now and then.

Commune Coworks

Offering a co-working experience with a difference, Commune Coworks is a recently-opened space spread over four floors. The place has a ‘classic meets funky’ design with open and shared workspaces, private offices, conference rooms, gaming areas and even an event space. What caught our attention is that each floor has a theme of its own. Think floors designed according to themes like The Garage, The Cafe, The Workshop, The Studio and The Terrace.

On the lookout for a place where you can work out of, without being bothered by distractions like the noise in a cafe? Work Adda with its no frills setup and open desks {around 30 work stations} might just fit the bill. From freelancers and entrepreneurs to startups, you’ll find them all here.

Whether you need a private cabin for your team or you’re a freelancer who prefers working late into the night and over weekends, 91 Springboard will have you sorted. All set to open a second hub in Koramangala, they have comfortable workstations, conference rooms, a cafe and a gaming zone too! A network of mentors, regular events and the chance to connect to a community of likeminded individuals are all additional highlights of the space.

Incubex

Incubex’s Koramangala facility is a 50-seater space which has plug and play workstations, designed specifically for startups. So, it’s not just a place to work out of that you get here but also the opportunity to connect to other ventures as well as fellow entrepreneurs from the community.

More than just your regular cafe, Dialogues also doubles up as a library and a workspace. And, the best part? All you need to pay for is the time you spend here! So, go ahead and read a book when you need a break from work, or munch on some of their snacks along with a cup of coffee, all for free. Done up in vibrant shades and boasting of a beautiful rooftop seating, they also have a boardroom for official meeting and interviews. Read more about it here.

BeAnywhere

Koramangala gets an all-new coworking hotspot with BeAnywhere. A designer house spread across three floors, the place has comfy spots and plenty of open spaces {and greenery}, all to inspire you to get working. High speed internet, a Nespresso machine for your caffeine fix and a panini maker are part of what the offer here.

Work-In

This newly-opened coworking space clearly believes all work and no play can make you dull. While their workspace with swivel chairs and white boards is perfect for you to focus, the vegan terrace lounge is where you can unwind with some healthy food. Or head to their game room and try your hand at a round of table tennis or a playstation game even! With cups of tea and coffee to keep you going, they’re equally welcoming if you’re the kind who likes working late into the night. Going beyond just work, they also have an event space to host anything from workshops to dance performances.
