Restaurants ‘Moonlight’ as Office Space

DBGB Kitchen & Bar

New York start-up Spacious is turning upmarket restaurants into office spaces during the hours when these settings would normally be closed, usually from early morning until 5pm.

Members, who are offered a free trial, can make use of the company’s expanding portfolio of properties for $96 per month or $29 per day. So far, NY-based eateries such as L’Apicio, DBGB Kitchen & Bar and Public (opening soon) have signed up to the scheme.

The service typically includes tea, coffee and light snacks, as well as a text-based concierge on-hand to solve any problems that may arise, such as wi-fi connectivity.

The initiative, which will soon expand to San Francisco, London and Los Angeles, chimes well with the fluid and nomadic work lives of modern individuals, as explored in New Luxury Travel and Hospitality With Heart – both part of The Future Guest Industry Trend. Here, we see how work is undertaken in bite-sized chunks – even while on vacation – and how smart brands are creating ways to make time in-transit more productive.
