Working from home is great on those days where you fancy a nap at lunchtime and have a lot of laundry to get through. But oftentimes, working solo at a desk in your bedroom can feel lonely and it can be hard to separate work from play when you’re doing both in the same space. Here is a list of ten great places to work in London. We’ve divided them up into north, east, west and south London as well as central if you fancy going into town or have evening plans. You’re welcome!
One of East London’s newest hotels, MAMA Shelter has a large restaurant/bar/lounge area perfect for getting cosy and doing some work. If you need to take a break then why not look for another AndCo member to have a game on the oversized table football table? If you need a meeting room then Mama Shelter has to have some of the coolest in London….fully equipped with Karaoke set up for when you fancy letting off some steam once your meeting is over.
Number 10 is a social hub & alternative work location which shares its space with vinyl shop & label The BBE Store & Japanese bar/restaurant Sho Foo Doh (open from 6pm for dinner). Your day will be soundtracked by the store’s staff & the extensive vinyl collection on offer. You’re welcome to bring your own food and drink during the daytime, excluding alcohol, however, there may be a member of staff available to make coffee & serve drinks from behind the bar (the bar & restaurant officially opens at 6pm). Nestled in the Overground train-line arches that run alongside the leafy space of London Fields & Broadway Market, surrounded by other brilliant local businesses & cafes, this is one of the capital’s most musical & diverse work spaces.

You may notice that there are no plug sockets here, but fear not, just ask the staff for a battery pack and they will provide you with one.
Kindred is reimagining how a members’ club can function as the centre point of city lives: where we work, play, and seek community. Work here, eat here, celebrate here, and most importantly, connect with the people here. You can now book a meeting room here as an AndCo member – what a space to get inspired in.
