A better way to work

At Workbar, our spaces are tailor made for teams like yours facing the new challenges of a pandemic, with employees calling for greater workplace flexibility in its wake. The Workbar model provides the very best elements of a sublease, with none of the downside.

WHY WORKBAR?

We enable businesses and remote workers to achieve more.


Workbar provides a hybrid workplace solution, where employers provide a central HQ, for collaboration and culture benefits, with an additional workspace solution that allows employees the ability to work closer to home a few days a week


Workbar is more than just a single office, we provide access to 10 healthy workspaces across Greater Boston with our Hub and Spoke model.

Workbar provides the resources and infrastructure not available at home so teams can do their best work outside central HQ .

Our spaces are intentionally designed with activity-based neighborhoods to harbor productivity, cultivate community and collaboration, and encourage an inclusive, socially-powered environment. Remain distanced, but socially connected in our 80% open space layout.

Make a sound decision for your business.

Evolve your workplace strategy to balance office density, health and safety, employee wellbeing and team culture.
