Permanent desks

A fixed desk is the most popular choice among our members who have chosen to make Lisbon their base, whether for a month or forever. You get to choose the perfect desk for you, you can come and go at any time of the day or night, bring your monitor, photos of loved ones – even your dog – now you’re really part of the family! If you’re looking for space for more than one person we can try to find two desks together in a shared room or you might like to check out our private team rooms.

Why cowork?

As freelancers ourselves we understand how hard it can be to work from 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 a perfect environment to get work done and have fun while doing so – we hope you like it as much as we do! 

All the Cs

Coworking is about collaboration, cooperation and community. It's about being surrounded by friendly faces to make you feel at home in a new place, kindred spirits, serendipitous encounters, friendship and happy accidents. Join our merry gang today and find out to find out why we’re Lisbon’s favourite coworking space…

How does it work?

If you’re unsure which of our spaces is right for you come along for a visit. Or, if you’re ready to jump in, book a desk for a day, week or longer online. On your first day you can choose your desk, we'll show you around and get you set up and introduce you to some of your coworkers. After that it's up to you - join us for the #surfbus, on the taco train, or for #secretlunch

Compare features

All plans come with access to our wonderful community – both online and offline – where we organise and facilitate a variety of activities including regular dinners and drinks, workshops, as well as our taco train, #surfbus and world-famous #secretlunch. (We changed some of our tariffs recently and we’re still updating the information below – give us a shout if you have any questions. We’ll get this updated as soon as possible.)

Philipp loved Cowork Central Cais do Sodré during his time as a member here

Great location with a lot of nice desks and equipment. The staff is always friendly and tries to help you with all the problems you might bump into. On top of that you’ll be invited to a group so you can join people for lunch, surfing or simply having a beer or coffee!
