Today is a short and sweet ode to co-working spaces, specifically our new HQ: WeWork. Who would have thought when we first wrote about Miami's growing start-up scene and the state of co-working affairs that in two short years we would find ourselves growing our own start-up at a co-working space? Yet, here we sit writing this story from our very own, very real office on the 5th Floor of WeWork Lincoln Road and we couldn't be happier.
The decision to move to a new office was an exciting but daunting one. We had visited co-working spaces before for events and researched them thoroughly for our features on entrepreneurial activity in Miami, but we had never shopped them through the lens of a user. Now that we have, we can see us having an office at all of them. The communities are very different; their benefits are varied; and, their locations give each of them a unique vibe. In the end, we were excited to join new kid on the South Beach block, WeWork, for their central location, their pricing options, their worldwide community and, most importantly, their "So Miami" vibe.
As you will see from the photos below, the décor perfectly highlights Miami pride with stunning views of South Beach. Plus, we were pleasantly surprised to find our friend Mandy Baca's book Vintage Miami on the coffee table of our floor's lounge area. Oh, and yesterday they threw a Havana Nights party with croquetas, empanadas, tropical cocktails by nearby watering hole Repour Bar and salsa dancing...in the lobby. It. Was. Awesome. Just like our first two weeks here have been.
Today at happy hour, join us in a toast to our new super cool office. May our move here be but one milestone of many in Thank You Miami's history!
