Technical.ly's 2024 guide to coworking spaces in DC is underwritten by Mindspace. This story was independently reported and unless noted, not reviewed before publication.

Didn’t you hear? Coworking is back in style in 2024. But for several of these spaces, there’s a twist. 

Despite the rise in remote work since the pandemic, as well as the DC metro area’s resistance to returning to the office, physical space still matters for innovative entrepreneurs. That’s where this coworking guide comes in.

There are the classic facilities with multiple desks and unlimited coffee. But the region presents more nontraditional and niche spaces, too, including women-focused options and offices specifically designed for creative professionals. Also, places exist where fitness and coworking come together, offering yoga and rock climbing.

See below what the DMV coworking scene has to offer. Let us know if we missed anything by emailing us at dc@technical.ly.

Mindspace

1301 K St. NW

It’s hard to get more central than this 31,000-sq.-ft. space at One Franklin Square, located on the floor just below The Washington Post. You’re just as likely to run into a startup founder as a political consultant, each honing their respective pitches in the colorful European-style interior filled with multiple arrangements of desks, couches, meeting rooms and phone booths — not to mention a spacious kitchen area featuring several coffee machines, free cereal and soda, and staff regularly tidying up.

Cost: Open space starts at $360 per month; private offices start at $575 per month; membership includes access to Mindspace’s global coworking network
