Tiger

StationW is an innovative network transforming restaurants and bars that are closed during the daytime in Paris into comfortable workspaces open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Friday. Not only does it boast ultra fast wifi in a studious and inspiring environment guaranteed to boost your productivity, but they also have an eco-friendly ethos.

There is a positive impact on the environment, with collaborative working aiming to cut electricity and energy consumption by gathering home-workers and freelancers in one space. That way, we’re not using our individual lights and electricity at home, even the shared kettle cuts down on energy.

Anticafé

Anticafé runs innovative spaces dedicated for people to meet, create, work, share, or dream. You pay according to how much time you spend there, reinforcing a consciousness around energy consumption. Everything inside the space is included in the subscription—snacks and drinks, a food and coffee corner, and even a library and game area with cards.

Concerning the eco-friendly ambition of Anticafé, they turn to local handmade designers for 30% of their furniture. What’s more is their food products focus on homemade lemonades and local vegetables, with a coffee partnership with Coutume.

République 6 rue du Château d’Eau 75010 Paris


Rooftop

All Rooftoppeurs have free access to essential services like video conference rooms and even an exciting 3D printer. It’s a serious space with 24/7 secure access and meeting spaces that allow you to swap business cards and network with the best creative and technical minds from the digital world. The aim is ambitious, being to collectively advance our vision of the future. The Rooftop-Work offers an incredible view of the Arc de Triomphe and La Défense.

Location:

47 Avenue de la Grande Armée 75016, Paris


Le Loft 50 Partners

This epic 620-meter-squared loft space located right in the center of Paris can host up to 90 co-workers, all partaking in shared eco-conscious resources. It is a vibrant place buzzing with numerous events, conferences, meetings, even intensive workshops, where the key players and rising entrepreneurs are inspired.

Mutinerie

Mutinerie is the legendary Parisian co-working space claiming to be the very first place in Paris to pioneer co-living as a concept. The eco-friendly bonus is their vegetable garden, and a training center with a varied program of workshops that have already trained hundreds of entrepreneurs, as well as teams of large companies. They also have time to produce a magazine read by hundreds of thousands of people on various topics related to changes in the world of work and society.

Station F

Another Anticafé eco-friendly conception is Station F, complete with sweet and tasty snacks, games, books, projector, and printer. It’s €24 a day, €240 a month, or just €5 an hour which is fairly reasonable considering the price of a coffee in most cafes. There are 15% reductions for members and -10% for students or unemployed people, which is a pretty good value given all the pleasant hidden extras.

What’s more is that Station F has their own coffee blend adhering to a strict social responsibility, showing concern for the revenue of the producer and the conditions of production.

Station F – Parvis Zone Share 55 Boulevard Vincent Auriol 75013 Paris

Bliss

A second venue owned by Station W, and boasting all the eco-friendly energy ideas shared at Tiger, is Bliss. Their co-working space similarly participates in the reduction of transport emission by creating a local hub where freelancers gather in these spaces rather than going to farther away offices often located in the outskirts of the city.

Station W also works on building an incredibly social network between the freelancers with invitations to networking breakfasts, lunches, and happy hour socializing once the space transforms back into a bar after 6 p.m.

What’s more is the level of flexibility, as spaces can be privatized for important appointments with guests and special events.

Location:

8 Rue Coquillière, 75001 Paris, France


Coworkshop

Coworkshop, nestled by the Saint Martin Canal in the 10th district of Paris, is handily positioned by two of the major train stations, Gare du Nord and Gare de l’Est. It’s an energy-using conscious, eco-friendly, and collaborative workspace that is perfect for young entrepreneurs and freelancers in transit or on business trips requiring a relaxing but professional place to work. There is no need make a deposit, their doors are always open.

Location:

29-, 32 Rue des Vinaigriers, 75010 Paris, France


Tank

From conferences and workshops to training and hackathons, Tank aims above all to unite the best minds of the digital world. At the heart of the Bastille district in the 11th arrondissement of the capital, this new coworking space was born with a strong ambition: to liberate creative expression in a 1,000-meters-squared eco-conscious space across six floors. This space, run by Spintank, a corporate communication agency, is dedicated to entrepreneurial nomadism.

Location:

22 bis rue des Taillandiers 75011, Paris

Pompidou (“Le 153”)

After the success of Bliss and Tiger, Station W are opening their third venue on October 9. Positioned right in the heart of Paris’ most famous contemporary arts venue, Pompidou Centre, Le 153 might entice a more artsy crowd to use the same eco-conscious facilities that have been so popular elsewhere in the city.

Hubsy Café & Coworking

Hubsy Café & Coworking offers access to three studious yet relaxed workspaces of 100 meters squared. The space enhances the “home-like” feel with quiet music, comfortable seating, a cozy atmosphere, a bar with gourmet snacks and hot drinks, and a warm welcome. It’s the cheapest per hour on the list at 4 euros per hour per person, or 16 euros for the day.

Location:

41 rue Réaumur 7503, Paris

There’s also been a rise in co-homing, where people advertise their personal living space for collaborative working. But official co-working spaces, while they may be slightly more expensive, offer the guarantee of a productive day’s work.
