Washington, D.C. has increasingly become a place to be for coworking with more creative spaces to work out of popping up each year. The District welcomed Mindspace this summer but had to bid farewell to prominent coworking space Impact Hub DC earlier this year in January and 1776 DC will soon join the list come Dec. 31.
From a hot desk, to a shared office, or even a private meeting room, there’s more than 20 coworking spaces the District has to offer. The list below includes coworking space locations, a short description with a shoutout to some cool amenities. In 2019, the District can expect new coworking offices from The Bond Collective, Two Birds and more.
