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.
Well, both. Currently we offer the following two options: shorter publicly available Brand Playlists and long-form private Soundtracks for spaces. For both of them we work closely with the client to understand how sound fits into their brand DNA and what their audience is like.
We believe that the guests’ experience with a particular space doesn’t have to begin and end with their stay. The idea of the Brand Playlist is to be a public brand playlists designed to engage the customers before, during, and after their visit at a space. It’s always accessible for them and serves as a new, dynamic marketing channel.
The Soundtrack is slightly different. It takes sometimes up to weeks of work and is designed by a world-class artist, DJ, or tastemaker. For it we first work with you to develop a deep understanding of your business and style. Then we match you with the perfect artist, DJ, or tastemaker to create unique, always fresh playlists, custom tailored to match your brand.
In both cases, we update them regularly based on guest habits and clients’ needs.
The way we engage with the music community is something really important for us and honestly, what makes us different than other background music providers. A lot of the background music providers out there have internal teams of maybe five or six DJs that do all of the music for their clients. We aim to connect with the local scene and always work with local DJs. There's some kind of magic in finding the exact right artists for the brand.
And on the flip side of it, when we hire artists, we make sure that the project is also inspiring for them and that they would be interested in participating. We always make sure to pay them well. The whole project creates for them a new income stream that they wouldn't have otherwise.
Yes! This was really fun. The objective with the betahaus "betabeer sounds" playlist was to showcase the community side of betahaus. There are so many cool, interesting people in the betahaus community and we thought a playlist could be a perfect way to not only help bring the community together but also show the diverse funkiness of the communities of Berlin and Neukölln, which is why Hazy Pockets, a longtime local Berlin DJ known for his eclectic mixes, was perfect for this project.
This playlist moves from bluesy 60s rock into surf and tropicalia, picking up momentum into Motown and onwards through some laid back disco tunes. Perfect for the betabeer events betahaus hosts monthly!
Oh, there are just so many! Like the Imren Grill for instance where you can find the best homemade Turkish food or Das Gift and Gordon which are both run by great music people. Kohelenquelle in Prenzleuer Berg is my favorite local bar (or rather kneipe). To satisfy my techno / electronic records needs I always go to Hard Wax and one of my most special places is the Zions Kirche steeple, which has an awesome view of the city and a great Weinerei close by.
