In accordance with the recent statistics, it has been revealed that the coworking is the new trend among entrepreneurs and the demand for shared spaces are increasing with every passing day. But right now many of the unconventional spaces which were earlier not rendered fit for work are turning into smooth coworking zones like the restaurants.

Many of the restaurant owners all across the world are claiming the fact that they like the idea of coworking and are eager to make changes in the restaurants to make them an apt place for client meets and workspaces. High-end restaurants like the Crave Fishbar in New York is now one of the most buzzing coworking space. It turns to be a restaurant by dinner time but acts as coworking space during the day.

Restaurants as Coworking Spaces

Restaurants turning into coworking spaces is the ultimate result of the demand-supply chain. While new and old entrepreneurs need space to build up their businesses, many restaurant owners are desperate to make some rent out of their free spaces. And that is the reason why it is the side business of many restaurants to provide space to a number of small startups so that apart from having meals, they can contribute to community building.

One might think that only the empty and abandoned spaces are being used up for shared workstations but the fact is that even the buzzing venues are doing the same. While the restaurants are operating normally during the rush hours, in the time span when the crowd is scanty, they are offering the space to people who work of few hours per day – thus performing the role of flexible desks.

The essence of coworking in restaurants

According to the prediction of Vox, the empty spaces of the malls and the departmental stores are going to be taken up next. The essence of coworking is gradually spreading to a great extent and that is the reason why every void space may soon beĀ filled with the community of startups and self-employed professionals.

Indifferent of whether the Spaces ranging from high profile restaurants to small cafes, there is never a dearth of new entrepreneurs looking for spaces to work in. The best part of coworking in restaurants is that it is a warehouse of opportunities where the chances of networking are much higher and you never know what is in store for you next!
