| Regional Density - Access to Other Locations in Greater Boston|
Coworking is all about flexibility and agility, so we make that a priority at Workbar. When you sign up for a coworking membership, dedicated desk or office space, you automatically get access to other Workbar locations – including our spaces in Boston, Somerville, Arlington, Burlington and Salem, and to our network partners – some of the best local coworking spaces across Massachusetts. When you book a desk at WeWork Mass Ave., on the other and, you must work from that WeWork Cambridge location every day, without having the flexibility to go where work takes you.

| Four Modern Neighborhoods to Support Different Workstyles |
While other coworking spaces in the area, such as WeWork Cambridge in Central Square,, have few common areas for coworkers to share, at Workbar we have taken our ample open coworking areas to the next level by separating them by noise level. We understand that not everyone works the same way, that’s we offer four different neighborhoods within our spaces designed to support different workstyles.
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.

| Membership Options for Tailored to Your Needs|
Whether you are a full-time freelancer or the founder of a growth-stage startup, the last thing you want to do with your budget is overpay for workspace. So why pay a large monthly fee for a hot desk at WeWork Central Square if you only need to use it a couple of times a month? At Workbar, our membership offerings include full-time and part-time access to accommodate you and your team’s needs. Only planning on using the space a few times? Have a part-time employee that only comes in once a week? No need to commit full-time; here you only pay for the time you are using the space.

| Generous Meeting Room Hours & A Modern Booking System|
It is not uncommon for big coworking chains to limit the conference room hours included in a membership or an office – some, like WeWork Cambridge (WeWork Central Square), even aim to charge members extra to use meeting rooms at peak hours. At Workbar, we know that having a private room to discuss team priority or meeting with a client makes all the difference, so we give our members generous allotment of meeting room hours included in a membership. Workbar Cambridge has six ample meeting room with flat screens, AV tech, conference phones, and white board walls for brainstorming. 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 |
While coworking has evolved to become a key term in commercial real estate, it was born as a community, collaborative solution, and at Workbar we stay true to that concept. When you visit a Workbar, you can see each space includes plenty of communal areas, and that’s because it was designed to foster community engagement and facilitate member interactions. While most companies offering coworking options in the city, like WeWork Mass Ave in Cambridge, have mostly private office spaces and very few common areas open to all members, at Workbar we consider those shared spaces the heart of our coworking network. Our locations were built to help you achieve more, and we wholeheartedly believe that by nurturing connections with other members we can help you expand your network, develop your career and grow your business.

| Numerous Members-Only Community Events|
While the majority of coworking spaces in the area, including WeWork Cambridge, organize events, many of them have a primarily focused on hosting public events that attract non-members to the space. The Workbar events calendar, on the other hand, includes public and members-only events each month, with a focus on professional and social events in the areas our members have expressed interest. Some of our members only happenings include professional development workshops and panel discussions, birthday celebrations, community breakfast, happy hours, paint classes, yoga and meditation sessions and more.
