In an era when concepts like freelance, entrepreneur and startup are common currency, it makes sense to provide places that cover the specific needs of this kind of professionals. Distrito Central was created for people who have had enough of home office from their living or dining room. It is one of several coworking spaces in Mexico City where you can find all the facilities of an office space without the claustrophobic business environment.

Located in the fashionable la Roma neighborhood, this place is a mixture of sobriety and vintage decor; the first thing you notice walking in is an old (though pristine) gray door from a VW van and a pair of well-maintained typewriters, matching the (working) 80’s TV set in the common room. 

This place is divided into several rooms, equipped with office furniture and high-speed wireless internet. There is water, tea, coffee and snacks in the breakroom, as well as a refrigerator and a microwave so you can keep your lunch fresh and have it whenever you feel like it.

If you prefer working outdoors, you can go to the terrace to clear up a bit and let ideas flow. Settle into one of the hanging chairs outside and enjoy the view of the city from the fourth floor. 

In order to use their facilities you need sign up for a membership. Choose the plan that fits you best: anywhere from $250 per day (12 hours), to a stationary cowork including unlimited hours, telephone answering service and access meeting rooms.

An advantage of getting the membership is that you have access to both the Roma and Condesa branches, as well as their sister brand SACH branches (Toreo, Plaza Polanco and Reforma).

Tip: Go to their website, set up an appointment and get a free one-day pass.
