Coworking spaces are all about surrounding yourself with like-minded people. But that doesn’t mean you actually have to be working to hold an event at the PatchWork Collective. We offer club and group meeting space for everything from meditation to business networking. Book your space today.
Social Clubs and Groups Fill Professionals’ Calendars
Today, more than every, people are filling their social calendars with club meetings and group events. Young professionals and active adults alike are finding ways to stay connected with friends through social gatherings.
This is often especially true for young professionals, contract workers, and freelancers. Many of these workers have chosen careers that give them the flexibility to pursue passions and hobbies without being tied down to the 9-5.
But unlike in years past, many of those clubs and groups are meeting outside the home. Dinner parties are still popular, but if you are trying to get to know somebody new, or want to invite strangers to join you, you probably don’t want everyone knowing where you live.
Coworking Space: A Great Option for Your Next Group Meeting
Looking for a place for your group meeting can be a tricky balance. You want someplace public and easy to find. You could choose a restaurant, but that can bring with it an obligation to order food and the expectation that you’ll clear the table after an hour or two. Bars can be dark, loud, and crowded. What you need is a private room where you can get together and meet.
That’s what coworking spaces are built for. Shared work spaces and private rooms give you the space you need to get together. They also often come with amenities that can enrich your group experience:
- Video clubs can project the movie on the big screen
- Book clubs can get comfortable with couches or bean bag chairs
- Craft groups can gather around a large table, or break out into smaller work spaces
- Business networking groups can serve up coffee and provide a big enough space to mix and mingle
- Board game clubs have access to plenty of tables to spread out and play
