Now that digital tech has freed us from the shackles of landlines and desktop computers, we’re spoiled for choice among co-working spaces. Some things are a given: lightning-fast Wi-Fi, private meeting spaces available for a fee and some sort of printer/scanner situation. But many offer next-level extras like production studios, meditation rooms and even beds to sleep the night. Here, seven of our favorites.

We visited the Spaces Fairfax campus; other locations are in Culver City, the Row DTLA and Santa Monica. The vibe is super-sunny, blond wood, thriving hub of activity with around 250 workspaces.

Pros: dog-friendly, flexible workspaces (desk, sofa, table) available monthly from $330, outdoor shaded patio with seating, across the street from Original Farmers Market lunch options, napping room

Cons: only two phone booths for private calls, $25 per day parking

WeWork Playa Vista

Want to be a start-up techpreneur or just look like one? That’s the spirit of this location, near the offices of Google, YouTube and Facebook. There are additional WeWorks in 14 other Los Angeles-area locations from Pasadena to Long Beach.

Pros: dog-friendly, breezy working area, walkable to Whole Foods, plenty of phone booths

Cons: a shuffleboard table for spirited collegial rivalry (a perk or a distraction, depending on your stance), $20 a day or $165 a month parking

Neuehouse

The most glam co-working space in town, this seven-story facility is located in the former HQ of CBS in Hollywood. We’re feeling major VIP vibes after exploring the sleek Art Moderne interiors, and checking out prestige on-site events ranging from guest speakers like Margaret Atwood to a cannabis-enhanced sound bath in the former I Love Lucy sound stage.

Pros: on-site restaurant that delivers lunch to your desk, two outdoor decks, a broadcasting studio, $7 parking with validation, month-to-month memberships, complimentary access to the New York location

Cons: It’s pricy—there are various membership options, including the Reserve plan (5 working days, plus night and weekend access) for $400, or another plan with unlimited communal floor access starting at $650.

We visited the office, which has a cozy, friendly atmosphere, on the second floor of a vertical shopping hub in West L.A. Way better than fighting for a space and Wi-Fi at the nearby Coffee Bean.

Pros: women only, valet parking, daily drop-in rates ($30)

Cons: West Side traffic, smallish space, membership application required, only one location

Village Workspaces

At this friendly co-working brand with locations in West Los Angeles and Santa Monica, you'll find poppy decor, hipster companies renting offices and a free weekly breakfast to encourage mingling among workers.

Pros: a five-minute walk to Expo Line’s Bundy Station, the West Side location has an audio studio (to do your podcast), ample free street parking, free coffee and beer on tap, 24/7 access

Cons: Public-area acoustics can get loud without headphones to drown out voices.

This stand-alone Culver City space is a November 2017 newcomer to the Los Angeles co-working ecosystem.

Pros: dog-friendly, “hot desks” in the communal workspace cost $325 a month, showers with lockers, 24-7 access, green screen video studio

Cons: Parking ranges from $125 to $175 per month.

The concept is “co-living”: You can work at any of the four locations across town (Venice, DTLA, Los Feliz, Hollywood) for $15 per day and—for an extra fee around $50—get a bunk bed and locker to spend the night.

Pros: A flat fee gets you access to four locations across town, and bunks have LED nightlights and flat-screen TVs with Roku and personal outlets.

Cons: The atmosphere of the Los Feliz location we visited skews more hostel than high-end working space, and there are no long tables like in other workspaces. But we’re keeping this concept in our back pocket to share with 20-somethings who are eager to see Los Angeles on the cheap.
