Citizen Space adheres to four basic principles when it comes to its day-to-day operations: collaboration, openness, community, and accessibility. Members can sit at designated desks, on couches, bean bag chairs, or in the cafe area. High-speed wifi makes it easy to get work done, but so do the free snacks.
Unlike many other coworking spaces, Citizen Space allows you to bring your pet to work. Their only requirement is that the pet be supervised at all times, and he must be well-behaved.
This past year, Citizen Space announced that it will soon open a Las Vegas location. It won't be as big as the San Francisco office, but will offer almost all the same amenities.
Location: New York, N.Y.
Membership: Access is free
