Summer is making it hard to stay in the office. Be honest. How many times in the last week have you dreamt of working from a balcony where cold cocktails and the beach are only a few minutes away? We can promise you're not the only one. But, you don't have to fly all the way to Costa Rica or Bali in order to get this summer feeling. Just a two-hour flight away from betahaus | Berlin you can find a coworking space with huge terraces, rooftop view, and a strong coworking community.
Here's a glimpse into betahaus l Barcelona.
Thinking of Barcelona, the first thing that comes to mind are sunny beaches, eclectic architecture, amazing nightlife, and a unique artistic vibe. However, you might be surprised to know how much the city has to offer for entrepreneurs, freelancers, and digital nomads. Even though Catalans might not be known for their long hours in the office, over the last few years, Barcelona has developed a strong entrepreneurial ecosystem.
Barcelona is home to more than 1,000 tech startups and has an Ecosystem Value of $6.4 billion dollars. It ranks as the fifth best cities for coworking in Europe behind London, Paris, Berlin, and Amsterdam. Yet, none of the above offer weather creeping above 30-degrees, nor seashores to watch the sunset from after work. Therefore, Barcelona seems to be the best city for anyone looking for a summer coworking experience who doesn't want to spend a fortune on overseas flights.
betahaus l Barcelona is located in the alternative and artsy Gràcia neighborhood, right in the center of the city. Famous for its narrow streets, numerous independent art galleries and creative pursuits, Gràcia is certainly the most Berlin-like quarter of Barcelona. Even inside our Barcelona coworking space, the team has managed to bring a unique DIY atmosphere. You can find numerous handmade signs and furniture around the house, leafy plants hanging from the ceiling and wooden deck chairs on the rooftop.
If not spread around the four terraces, members gather in the café over lunch. Instead of a kicker, betahaus l Barcelona has a ping pong table and even an open library, where coworkers can exchange their favorite reads.
betahaus l Barcelona is spread across 2000 q.m. and divided into 6 floors. The coworking space has 4 terraces, a rooftop, community kitchen, a café, multiple meeting rooms, comfy Skype booths, printers, and even a small backyard.
Our membership plans cost between 169,– for Club and 279,– for a Pro Membership. However, the team does offer special deals. Don't be surprised if you're invited to a personal interview after applying for membership! This is how our team in Barcelona finds the best fits and maintains a friendly, familial atmosphere in the space.
Currently, betahaus l Barcelona has around 190 members including freelancers and international startups.
