With most people working hybrid or remote roles, third spaces to get work done outside your house have become even more important. And although we love a local coffee shop, small businesses can’t sustain endless laptop traffic. 


We’ve chosen great remote workspaces that go beyond the typical cafe, offering free WiFi, printing options, bookable conference rooms, or other amenities. Plus, trying out a designed-for-remote work spot allows you to meet other remote workers. Who says you need an office to have a work bestie?

1) Shy Bird

Where: South Boston & Kendall Square

Info: Choose from 3 all-day work packages with varying perks from bottomless espresso beverages to free WiFi, free printing, second screens, and more. On the first Friday of each month, you can get free lunch at Shy Bird with a remote work reservation. 


2) Capital One Cafe

Where: Seaport

Info: Yes, this is technically a cafe, but don’t be fooled by the name, this isn’t your typical coffee stop. You can get coffee and espresso beverages and order off a full food menu, but you can also hook up to free WiFi, utilize plentiful outlets, and even book a nook workspace or small conference room. 


3) Venture Café Cambridge: Thursday Gathering

Where: Kendall Square

Info: Work from the Venture Cafe at the Cambridge Innovation Center on Thursdays and you can attend an after-hours networking event with other creators, entrepreneurs, and visionaries. Each gathering is themed and many feature a guest speaker. 


4) The Boston Public Library Kirstein Business Library & Innovation Center

Where: Back Bay 

Info: The Boston Public Library is a beloved workplace with tons of seating and outlets, an on-site coffee shop, free WiFI and printing, and WGBH live broadcasting. But the Kirstein Business Library & Innovation Center is an underutilized remote workspace. Book a private conference room or workspace and get access to a 3-D printer, small business coaching, Adobe software, and more, all for free. 


5) The Harvard University Richard A. and Susan F. Smith Campus Center

Where: Harvard Square

Info: This meeting ground for the Harvard community (and visitors!) offers a wide array of flexible spaces. Cafe-style tables are great for solo work sessions and coffee intake, and groupings of couches and comfortable chairs are great for team brainstorming sessions or on-site meetings. You may even get a free concert if someone gets to work at the on-site piano. 


6) CultureHouse Union Square

Where: Union Square

Info: This pop-up community space (test driving for a more permanent community center) offers free co-working space and complimentary coffee and tea. They also have a robust schedule of programs like a LGBTQ soup dinner and a craft group, so it’s a great place to meet like minded people.
