The Secret to Austin’s Thriving Business Hub: Coworking Spaces
There are a ton of great coworking spaces in Austin, Texas, to check out. Here are some coworking spaces that are perfect for remote workers in Austin.
Not all coworking spaces are created equal, and this is especially true when it comes to The Cathedral. Located in East Austin, this 1930s church has been refurbished and redone to create a coworking space that is truly one of a kind. Due to its church structure, you’ll be able to bask in a ton of natural light thanks to large windows, with plenty of desks scattered throughout the large room without seeming too cluttered. And not to mention, they are dog-friendly, so you don’t have to leave your best furry friend at home!
Some notable amenities include free wifi, a fully stocked kitchen, free coffee, private conference rooms, phone booths for private calls, as well as a huge parking lot, so you don’t have to worry about street parking.
There’s a fresh vibe here at The Cathedral, and they even offer free member-only perks such as art exhibits, yoga, and meditation events. You won’t want to leave after your first work session here.
Monthly price: $250 for the standard membership, $350 for the premium membership, and $450 for a dedicated desk.
Location: 2403 E 16th Street.
