| Regional Density - Access to 7 locations in Greater Boston|
Coworking is all about flexibility and agility. If you choose to base your team or your personal business at Workbar Downtown, you still have access to the Workbar network including our locations in Cambridge, Somerville, Arlington, Salem and Burlington. Additionally, you have the option to work from any of our network partners – some of the best local coworking spaces across Massachusetts. With a membership at Cambridge Innovation Center, also known as CIC Boston, on the other hand, you wouldn’t have access to a vast network of spaces in the region.

| Four Modern Neighborhoods to Support Different Work Styles |
One of the key differentiators between Workbar and other coworking spaces in the area, including CIC Boston and CIC Milk Street, is the layout of the space. Every Workbar was built to include four neighborhoods that support productivity, efficiency and interaction. We understand that not everyone works the same way, that’s why our spaces were designed to facilitate different work styles.
1) The Cafe - A conversation-friendly area with ambient music
2) The Commons - A space designed for team collaboration, no phones allowed!
3) The Switchboard - Phone-friendly area, great for conference calls and sales teams
4) The Study - Think of this space like a library, a completely quiet are for heads-down work.
Whether you are looking to call a client or tackle a writing assignment without interruptions, Workbar has the perfect space to do it.

| Membership Options for Tailored to Your Needs|
It doesn’t matter whether you are a successful startup founder or a newly established freelancer, the truth is that nobody wants to overpay for a workspace. At Workbar, we have designed our membership offerings to support your needs, that’s why we have both full-time and part-time options available. Why pay a large monthly fee for a hot desk at Cambridge Innovation Center (CIC Boston) if you only need to use it a couple of times a month? At Workbar, you only pay for what you use.

| Generous Meeting Room Hours & A Modern Booking System|
Some coworking spaces in the area, such as Cambridge Innovation Center Boston, advertise unlimited use of meeting rooms for all members. However, in a large coworking space like CIC Milk Street or CIC Boston, that is not a successful practice from an operations standpoint or from a user experience perspective. Such offering can easily become counterproductive; crowded meeting rooms and uncontrolled use of the space can leave members with no room at all to hold their meetings. At Workbar, meeting rooms are bookable via the company’s members-only digital platform, and can be booked well in advance. Members get a generous allotment of meeting room hours included in a membership. Part-time members get 5 hours/month, full-time and office space members get 10 hours/month and groups get up to 40 hours/month.

| Common Areas that Facilitate Community Engagement and Interaction |
With plenty of communal areas made for member collaboration, our spaces were built to foster community engagement and facilitate interactions. If you have been shopping for workspace in Boston, you probably know that most companies offering coworking in the city, such as Cambridge Innovation Center (CIC Boston), have a large inventory of private office spaces and few common areas open to all members. At Workbar, we prioritize those shared spaces. From the day we opened in 2009, our spaces have been designed to help you achieve more, and we believe that by nurturing connections with other members we can help you expand your network, develop your career and grow your business. Community is at the forefront of our mission and our space layout is a testimony to that.

| Numerous Members-Only Community Events|
Coworking companies are known for their fun events, but you should know that not all events are created equal. Most coworking spaces in the area, including CIC coworking, organize events, yet they primarily focus on hosting public events that attract non-members to the space. At Workbar, we have developed an events calendar highlighting both public and members-only events each month. Our exclusive members-only events are crucial for our community building goals, since they help us nurture connections and develop a sense of belonging among members. On any given month, our community managers organize professional and social events for members, including workshops and panel discussions, lunch outings, cocktail hours, craft nights, yoga classes and more.
