Formerly a biscuit factory in the 1920s, this flagship outlet spans 5 historic shophouses on Keong Saik Road. But what truly separates them from the rest of its pack is its community spirit and laid-back vibe.

6. Spaces – Dedicated parking spots for members


spaces

One of the challenges of getting to the office is finding a cheap parking space that won’t cost you an arm and a leg to park all day. But for co-workers of Spaces, your membership includes designated parking lots at 6 of its locations.

Even if you don’t have a car, most Spaces outlets are conveniently located within walking distance of an MRT, such as its flagship at City Hall. The work space houses ample rooms to cater to all needs – ranging from hot desks and private offices for startups, to meeting rooms for bigger groups looking to come together.

Decked out with minimalist decor, this fits workers who just want private space to get their job done, with membership starting from $350/month. They also follow a cashless pay-as-you-go system where drinks and snacks are all chargeable through members’ accounts.

7. WeWork – Pay-as-you-work desks & meeting rooms

Most co-working spaces have pay-as-you-work desks readily available that charge by the day. Less so for meeting rooms, which are usually a privilege for those with a dedicated membership. But at WeWork, even those on a day pass can book a meeting room as and when it’s needed. At $14/pax per hour, it’s ideal for those who rarely hold in-person meetings.

8. Gather Cowork – Pet-friendly


Our furbabies have gotten used to us being around 24/7 since we adopted WFH arrangements in the last couple of years. And now that many of us are required to head back to the office, the last thing you’d want to do is disrupt your pups’ schedules by leaving them at home.

Gather Cowork has the answer for pet owners: bring them to work with you. This co-working space at River Valley welcomes your 4-legged friends to join you while you bang out your next monthly report.

9. Core Collective – Co-working space for fitness instructors
