Coworking is all about flexibility and agility. When signing up for a desk or office at the South Station WeWork, you must work from that WeWork location every day. With Workbar, on the other hand, you choose your home location, but you still have access to the Workbar network including our locations in Cambridge, Somerville, Arlington and Burlington. Additionally, you get access to our network partners – some of the best local coworking spaces across Massachusetts.
Four Modern Neighborhoods to Support Different Work Styles
One of the key differentiators between Workbar and other coworking spaces in the area, such as WeWork South Station is the layout of our locations. Every Workbar was designed to support productivity, efficiency and interaction. We understand that not everyone works the same way, that’s we offer four different neighborhoods 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
Why pay a large monthly fee for a hot desk at WeWork South Station 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 your needs. Only planning on using the space a few times? Then you only have to pay for that.
Generous Meeting Room Hours & A Modern Booking System
Other coworking spaces limit the conference room hours included in each membership – some, like WeWork South Station, even aim to charge members extra to use conference rooms at peak hours. At Workbar, 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, our spaces were built to foster community engagement and facilitate member interactions. While most companies offering coworking options in the city, such as the South Station WeWork, have a large inventory of private office spaces and very few common areas open to all members, at Workbar we prioritize those shared spaces. Our locations were 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 testimony to that.
Numerous Members-Only Community Events
While most coworking spaces in Boston, including WeWork South Station, organize events for their members, many of them have a 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. Unlike the events at the South Station WeWork, our exclusive members-only events include both professional events such as workshops and panel discussion as well as social happenings like community breakfast, happy hours, craft nights, yoga and meditation classes and more.
A Local Space with Insider Knowledge of the Community
Workbar started in Boston in 2009 and our team is proud to be part of the city’s original coworking space. As a local born-and-bred company, we know the ins and outs of the city’s tech and innovation scene and that reflects on every aspect of our business, including our events programming, our partnerships, our perk partners program and more.
