Big cities are populated by thousands of beautifully designed restaurants which don’t open until the early evening. Spacious is a new initiative aiming to repurpose restaurant space as offices for the 9-5.
Started by Preston Pesek and Chris Smothers, Spacious is a new service designed for freelancers and those that require flexible meeting / work space. With sites in New York and coming soon to London, those that subscribe can access unlimited work space for just £75 per month including WiFi access, gourmet coffee and snacks.
Building partnerships with high-end restaurants Spacious has plans to scale quickly (it takes just two weeks to on-board new partners) and have plans to offer exclusive lunch menus for members. Although no official launch date for London yet, they are rapidly expanding and have recently closed fundraising from venture capital firms Lerer Hippeau Ventures, BoxGroup and SV Angel.
