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 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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
