Working from home has a lot of perks, but if your social skills are slowly degrading, why not take up Loosecubes on their offer to co-work under the Manhattan Bridge for free? The fast-growing company is hosting a pop-up office space in order to introduce people to the camaraderie and networking advantages of co-working - and they're even offering wifi, a few spots to juice up your gadgets, food vendors from the Brooklyn Flea, and supposedly there's a DJ and mini-golf area where you can compete for a beer. (Hey, all in day's work!) Read on to see how you can sign up!
We recently visited the locale, we must say that the DUMBO setup is pretty sweet. The gratis offer will continue for the next three Thursdays this month, and spots are filling up quick.
Loosecubes itself is a recently launched startup that is looking to capitalize on the increasingly popular co-working trend that seems to be sweeping all the boroughs. Thus far, the site has attracted everyone from writers to architects to photographers, and their goal has been to create a peer-to-peer environment where individuals in relevant industries can co-mingle, network and simply get out of their house or coffee shop. Loosecubes not only occupies public spaces, but invites members to open up their studios, spaces and even backyards to other Looscube members looking for a change of scenery.
If you’re looking to hit up this DUMBO spot, just keep in mind that you can’t just show up. You’ll have to request an invite from Loosecubes to use their services, and then your reserve a spot. However, there is plenty of room to just hang out with friends and nosh on the good eats on offer.
