We checked out Workbay, a coworking facility in Santacruz, to see whether it would provide a peaceful environment with plentiful coffee and fast WiFi for our working needs. Located in a bungalow in a quiet bylane, we were able to reach the work space after a five-minute walk from Khar station.
The one thing that immediately appeals to us about Workbay (other than its neighbourhood, which is convenient for those on the Western Line) is how clean, clutter-free and calming the decor is. The large windows reveal a lot of greenery outside, there are sturdy tables in neutral shades, and comfortable cushions, plants in each corner that make the space vibrant yet elegant. The office space comes with desks, office equipment, WiFi, beverages, a break room and rest rooms.
You won’t find any bean bags here. Workbay is about work. There are more than enough independent desks, spaced out at intervals, as well as community tables with ample elbow space. The WiFi's stable, and the loos are clean. The AC can tend to get a little chilly, so layer up.
Price: Drop them an email on your purpose, and they'll send you a perfect plan depending on your budget. Usually, for 50 hours a month they charge you INR 6,500. For just a day-pass, you'll shell out INR 850.
P.S: The only downside is their timings. They're shut on Sundays, and only open till 2 PM on Saturdays.
