If you’re a professional looking for a place to do your work and you’re looking to take advantage of good summer weather, Old Montreal has the perfect coworking spaces for you!
With the growing “green desking” movement and increasing outdoor facilities in urban spaces, offices are moving more into the heart of cities and thanks to the Common Air Project, Old Montreal is no exception to this trend. As a benefit of this project, you can set up your work at l’îlot Saint-Jacques near 406 Saint-Jacques Street and use these small booths equipped with WiFi and electricity from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., 7 days a week. For free! Are you more often in the Cité du Multimédia? That works out just fine, cause there is another one of these installations in Ephemeral Park (at the corner of Queen and Wellington), where you can hold outdoor meetings, or enjoy the sunshine as you respond to emails and stay close to the office!
This is the place for meet-ups, working, plants (which you can buy here), and music to fit whatever day or time of year. Are you an artist who doesn’t want to work alone or maybe you’re looking for a pretty space to create in? From 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. during the week, l’Orbite is a great place to settle in. And then after 6 p.m.? Stay a bit for a show or a dance class – there’s nothing quite like it to give you some new ideas or to let loose a bit!
With its retro design, 49th Parallel offers an ideal workspace that you can settle into for a couple hours. And if you feel a hunger start to creep in, you might want to let yourself be tempted by some of Lucky’s Doughnuts, each flavour as original and delicious as the last. Plus, they offer many vegan options, and they taste like heaven! This summer, enjoy the great weather on their open terrasse.
The enchanting décor of Tommy Café on Notre-Dame Street West spread out over two floors offers an inspiring workspace. Sit up on the mezzanine or next to the large windows, giving you a look at the passing world outside while you sip your coffee and answer a few emails.
Crew Collective is a coworking space and coffee shop located in the old Royal Bank skyscraper. You can book meeting rooms, enjoy a delicious coffee, have your own private workspace, and even get a subscription for your whole team! Plus, you can also host your private events in this prestigious setting, which the café will organize for you.
