Paris’s best co-working spaces

These co-working spaces in Paris offer a calm and productive setting for the office-less

Stuck without an office and kind of miss the awkward chit-chat, liberal coffee-making and clinical yet work-friendly décor? These co-working spaces in Paris are home to a growing number of freelancers, startup entrepreneurs and academics looking to get out of their cramped apartments and get to work in a calm and productive setting.

With many companies now battling for space in Paris’s co-working space market, some are going all-out and offering all sorts of added extras, from limitless supplies of coffee and cake to hi-tech arts and crafts machinery.

Think we’ve missed a great co-working space in Paris? Let us know in the comments.

L’Anticafé

This is a café for all those students and young professionals who’d rather do their emails and spreadsheets in the local Starbucks than at home.

The buffet also includes juice, biscuits, brioche and Nutella...

Personnellement, j'ai adoré l'espace co-working du nouveau concept store Upper. Il se trouve en plein coeur de Paris sur l'île Saint-Louis au 19 rue des deux ponts. Si vous cherchez un endroit calme pour pouvoir travailler tout en ayant une ambiance cosy et chaleureuse, allez y faire un tour ! L'espace est même équipé d'un vidéo projecteur et les cafés proposés font toujours du bien !
