Need a conducive place to work? Check out these cool co-working spaces that stand out from the others, including one that turns into a bar at night.
Looking for trendy work environments that invoke inspiration without breaking the bank? Co-working spaces have been thoughtfully designed to offer a professional and comfortable environment to get your work done. With more millennials choosing to go freelance or looking for flexible work, there is increasing demand for spaces with spacious workstations and themed meeting rooms. You can even hold networking events and sessions there. In fact, with meteoric real estate rentals in the city, many start-ups choose to work out of these spaces as well.
Here are eight co-working spaces in Singapore for #inspo.
1. The Carrot Patch
The Carrot Patch is the first co-working space in Singapore to introduce the new concept of transforming hotel and arcade bars into co-working spaces. Thanks to this new concept, bars which usually only operate at night get repurposed into inspiring and fun workspaces during the day.
There are multiple locations – SKAI Bar, Level Up and Henderson.
We love the one at SKAI Bar, based right above City Hall MRT station. It has a stunning setting featuring breath-taking panoramic views of Singapore’s glittering cityscape, as well as stations offering bottomless coffee & tea.
Prices are $20 for a single access pass and $220 a month for unlimited access.
You can even stay on till after-hours (when the space transforms back into a bar), to mingle and chat with clients over drinks (Yes, as a member you are also entitled to exclusive discounts!)
SKAI Bar: 2 Stamford Rd, level 70 Swissôtel The Stamford, Singapore 178882
Level Up: 3A River Valley Rd, #02-04 Block A, Singapore 179020
Henderson: Apex@Henderson #02-09, 201 Henderson Rd, Singapore 159545
2. The Working Capitol
Housed in a historic Art Deco-style building along Keong Saik Road, we love the exterior as much as we love the interior.
Spanning five light-filled, historic shophouses, The Working Capitol’s spacious 33,000-square-foot interior includes multiple event spaces for up to 200 people, a beer garden for after-work socialising, and three attached restaurants that are ready to host client luncheons and team happy hours.
Price plans start from $255 per month for a workspot, $729 per month for a workdesk and $900 per month for a workspace.

“The Great Room in Singapore takes co-working spaces to a new level” — CNBC
The Great Room is known for its hospitality-inspired design, with inspiration derived from some of the best hotel lobbies. We are absolutely in love with the flattering lighting, decor, rich colour palette and furnishings that speak of a restrained elegance and worldly sophistication.
Banish Monday blues with the Monday Breakfast Club, a sumptuous breakfast gathering where members exchange ideas over a fresh cuppa brewed by an in-house barista. In the evening, a turndown cart comes round with warm cookies and hot chocolate, all in bid to end Monday on a sweet note.
