Cowork Central

The hub for creative, independent minds situated in the heart of Lisbon

Bored with working at home? Aspiring digital nomad? Remote worker in need of human interaction? Visiting Lisbon and need to get some work done? Well, you've come to the right place. Cowork Central is Lisbon’s favourite – and cosiest – coworking spot.

Fun, friendly and central, we provide a base for nearly 50 people each day with desks and rooms available to rent on a flexible basis.

As freelancers ourselves we understand how hard it can be to work at home every day, with the washing-up to distract us and only the cats for company. We missed the focus and fun of a real office, so we’ve tried to create the perfect environment to share ideas, inspire and collaborate.

We hope you like it as much as we do! Learn more below about what makes us special or come along for a visit today.

We even have a dog or two here at times. We’re open to nice people everywhere!

For regular users of the space we facilltate a variety of activities including workshops, drinks, a weekly #surfbus, regular meals (including our famous ‘secret lunches’). We also promote events as part of the Made of Lisboa initiative.
