Co-working spaces in Singapore

Most of us long for a working space as cosy as home for us to pop by to get down to business. Thanks to the thriving gig economy, co-working spots have been springing up like daisies, turning our wish into a reality.

We’ve sussed out 9 of the ultimate co-working spaces in town – all within walking distance from the MRT. Some look straight outta Pinterest, and I bet my bottom dollar they’ll be giving you some serious #officegoals.

We visited these spaces with our sleek Lenovo Yoga 730 – read till the end for promo codes you can use to get yourself a handy notebook or PC for Christmas!
