Despite the feeling of being just another enormous cliche, the local coffeeshop persists as a mainstay of the rootless worker, the creative, the entrepreneur, who merely wants to escape the isolation and silence of working from home.

If you have spent any time working in a cafe or coffee shop, you are probably well acquainted with the many challenges which come along with it- the awkwardnesses,the disapproving glances, the dodgy wifi connections,  and the unnecessary cups of coffee ordered to justify your presence a little while longer.  

There is a project at the moment on KickStarter which is trying to provide a more practical and tailored solution to this issue.   

Workers Cafe is a new coffee-shop opening up in Hackney’s fashion district for creative professionals to be in a productive, relaxed environment.  The difference between the Workers Cafe and a regular cafe is that there is a members only space, where subscribers can work to their hearts content, with no more of the usual difficulties which come with working in a public place.  Membership will be £5 per working day.

All going to plan, the cafe should open on June 20th.

The project is the brainchild of  freelance videographer Ryan Seville who works remotely and so is well versed in the perils of setting up shop in cafes. He hopes that The Workers Cafe will be the ideal co-working space for workers where, through a membership model, creative professionals can feel welcome in a cafe-space for as long as they want to stay.

With just 6 days to go the team have raised half of their £1500 target.  Check out their pitch and show them some support.
