While working out of a retail destination might not sound too productive or professional, the folks at The Hive will tell you otherwise. A collaborative workspace spread across three floors, it is located in VR Bengaluru. Cut away from the buzzing activities at the mall (yet easily accessible if you want to head there), the space is described as a pan-India platform for entrepreneurs, start-ups, emerging enterprises as well as freelancers.
You get to choose from three-seater offices to ten-seater ones, and they also have bigger spaces for teams of 50 members. Wondering if you can head there on those days when you just don’t want to go sit in a cramped cubicle? Oh yes, hot desking is also a popular option here where you an work from practically any space in the common area. While the entire place is done up with bright designs and seems to have a pleasant vibe, the different work spots are all well set apart from each other. And, the best part? They have customisable spaces which can be done up just the way you like it (cubicles, desks or even a conference room!).
Apart from basic amenities like spacious meeting and conference rooms, free wifi and high-speed internet, there’s quite a lot here that might tempt you to move your office right away. Perfect for when you want to take a break from work, the common game room (for members across the three floors) is where you can try your hand at chess, pool or darts to unwind. Or pick from a shelf of books and magazines (courtesy Crossword) and sit back with a cup of their micro-roasted coffee.
If that doesn’t quite fit your bill of relaxing, you also have access to the spa as well as the rooftop pool - a temperature-controlled pool on SkyDeck (might be off limits due to COVID-19 restrictions). They have flexi passes for a day at INR 750, all the way till upto 10 days at INR 4,500 which includes all facilities.
