Lisbon Co-Work

Nestled in the vibrant city of Lisbon, Lisbon Cowork is a coworking space that offers a unique and inspiring environment for digital nomads and remote workers. With its stunning views of the Tagus River and the Panteao National, this pet-friendly workspace provides the perfect blend of comfort, productivity, and relaxation.

The space boasts a variety of amenities designed to cater to different working styles and preferences. For those who need a quiet environment to focus, the Quiet rule ensures that the desk rooms remain peaceful, with only low voice conversations allowed. Meanwhile, those seeking a more informal setting can take advantage of the dedicated areas for casual discussions and collaboration.

The space also features five phone booths, including one double booth, where members can make phone or video calls without disrupting their coworkers’ quietness. The coworking area is equipped with a state-of-the-art sound system, air conditioning, and heating, ensuring a comfortable work environment year-round.

After a productive day, members can unwind and rejuvenate in the sauna, or take a refreshing shower before heading out to explore the city. The beautiful terrace overlooking the Tagus River provides the perfect spot to relax, socialise, and even enjoy an impromptu piano session during afterwork gatherings.

Resvés

Located just a stone’s throw away from the lively Rato, the picturesque Estrela Park, and a plethora of exquisite restaurants, Resvés offers more than just a place to work; it provides an environment that fosters creativity, collaboration, and community.

The space itself is a testament to minimalist design, where natural light dances with quirky artwork, and every nook and cranny is thoughtfully curated to enhance productivity. Whether you’re a solo freelancer in need of a hot desk or a startup searching for a dedicated team space, Resvés has got you covered.

Members are treated to a range of amenities, from phone booths and lounge areas to an outdoor terrace and a kitchen stocked with complimentary coffee, tea, and fresh fruits. But beyond the physical space, what truly sets Resvés apart is its vibrant community. Here, you’re not just renting a desk; you’re joining a network of like-minded individuals, each bringing unique skills and perspectives to the table. As many attest, including one member who praised the excellent Wi-Fi, comfortable desks, and the ever-accommodating staff, Resvés Coworking isn’t just a place to work—it’s a place to thrive.

Heden

Heden Co-working Space

Heden coworking, located in the vibrant heart of Graça with additional spaces Rossio, Chiado, and Sta. Apolónia, is a testament to sustainability and creativity in Lisbon’s coworking landscape. Crafted with renewable materials, including standout bamboo desks, the space embodies environmental consciousness, further emphasized by its partnership with Coopérnico, Portugal’s first renewable energy cooperative. The workspace offers spacious flex desks for professionals, complemented by a cozy lounge filled with books and plush sofas, ideal for breaks or informal discussions.

The expansive downstairs area, which occasionally hosts talks, also features art studios, adding a unique artistic touch to the environment. Heden ensures its members feel at home by offering unlimited coffee, a variety of teas, and free black and white printing. With a dedicated community manager always available for assistance, Heden promises a seamless and enriching coworking experience.

Address: Tv. Pereira 35a, 1170-312 Lisboa (website)

Bworking

bworking lisbon

Bworking’s co-working space is situated on Rua Latino Coelho in between the Picoas and Saldanha metro stations. The space, which is aimed at startups, freelancers, and digital nomads, is available 24 hours per day and 365 days per year. 

The space has flexible and fixed desks, several meeting rooms, as well as several offices for companies that want office space in Lisbon. Coffee, tea, and fruit is available in the lounge. Bworking also offers other courses and services including yoga, physiotherapy, and healthy eating workshops. 

Address: Rua Latino Coelho 13A, 1050-234 Lisboa (website)

Impact Hub

Don’t let the name put you off – Impact Hub welcomes freelancers and start-up entrepreneurs from private industries too, not just those focused on making a social impact.

Impact Hub has two private Skype booths, a sunny workspace filled with natural light, and a big kitchen. It also has a whole raft of community events for members including movie screenings, networking drinks and wellness activities like yoga.

Impact Hub is located next to the LX Factory, but not in it. Unfortunately, there’s a wall that separates it from the LX Factory and you have to walk around.

The area it’s in is an unusual little amalgamation of buildings and businesses that includes the Museu Da Carris and Village Underground. Hopefully, the council will join the two areas up as I’m sure a lot of people would like to hop between the two.

Address: R. 1º de Maio 103, 1300-472 Lisboa – inside the Carris Museum complex (website)

Outsite

Outsite

Outsite began as a co-living space but but it’s now also a large co-working area with space for 40 people. The space has big windows, which means it’s bright and light during daylight hours. There is also a meeting room, printer, and standing desks. 

Situated in Cais do Sodré, it’s in a good and central location for those visiting Lisbon. The Time Out Market is just a few minutes’ walk from here, and most city centre attractions are easy to get to as well. 

Two big plus points are the free coffee (many co-working spaces charge for this) and the number of events that Outsite hosts. It’s also very easy to buy passes on Outsite’s website, and you can also check yourself in. 

Address: Rua de S. Paulo 109, 1200-275 Lisboa (website)

Village Underground

Village Underground Lisbon

Situated in Alcântara, this iconic coworking space, renowned for its distinctive architecture, is crafted from repurposed shipping containers and double-decker buses. These unconventional structures have been transformed into vibrant office spaces, a state-of-the-art recording studio, a restaurant, and a conference room. As a beacon for the city’s creative community, Village Underground has become an unmistakable landmark in Lisbon’s urban landscape.

Designed with the artistic and innovative in mind, Village Underground Lisboa caters to a diverse crowd, from freelancers and startups to visionary entrepreneurs. The space exudes a unique charm, allowing members to work from the cozy confines of a bus or dine in the air-conditioned restaurant housed within a double-decker.

However, while the ambiance is undeniably captivating, potential visitors should note a few quirks. The entrance, located on the river side, can be a tad tricky to locate. Additionally, while the air conditioning covers the main areas, some spots can get warm, especially during Lisbon’s hotter months.

Address: Av. da Índia 52 (website)

IDEIAhub

Hot desks at Ideiahub, Parque das Nações

In addition to co-working desks, IDEIAhub also has private offices and meeting rooms available to rent. IDEIAhub also hosts regular events for members, such as social lunches and skills workshops, so there’s a real social vibe. Another perk? Free fresh fruit and beer on tap.

The vibe that comes from IDEIAhub is quite corporate. Even though it was colourful and bright, and even though it had perks like free beer, it felt very much like a traditional office rather than a co-working space. Part of that could be due to the fact that it is a permanent office for many startups, and that vibe flows over into the co-working space who knows.

This atmosphere isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It’s an atmosphere where you get your head down and get your work done and, being honest, often that’s exactly what you need as a digital nomad.

Address: Av. D. Joao II Nº35 11ºA, 1990-083 (website

IDEIA

IDEIA booths

IDEIA in Palácio Sottomayor has a slightly less corporate vibe than its Parque das Nações cousin. The design, although very similar, is a lot more fun with cool little booths to work from a suspended chairs to relax in. 

Like Ideiahub, Ideia is home to a lot of startups and companies in Lisbon but you’ll also find quite a few freelancers and digital nomads working there as well. This is probably due to its city centre location: the Parque das Nações branch is quite far from where most nomads are likely to be staying. 

And, yes, like Ideiahub, Ideia has beer on tap in the kitchen as well!

Address: Avenida Fontes Pereira de Melo Nº 16 (website)

Lisbon WorkHub

This is one to join if you’re looking for funding. Start-ups and entrepreneurs will be excited to hear about Lisbon WorkHub’s partnership with Amsterdam Venture Partners, giving you a foot in the door with investors. The rest of us will need to make do with perks like room to stash your bike if you cycle to work, and a lounge to relax in if you need a bit of breathing space.

Address: R. Amorim 2, 1950-022

Second Home

Not content with being “London’s Coolest Workspace”, Rohan Silva’s project Second Home is aiming to become Lisbon’s too. And with its location in the Time Out Market, it’s definitely one of the most enviable spots to work from. The light-filled space is dotted with plants to add to the feeling of inspiration and privacy.

Unfortunately, although people love the plants, the chairs are quite uncomfortable. There’s also a lack of privacy, which can be important if you need to make client phonecalls. 

Coolness comes with a price, however, and this is also one of Lisbon’s most expensive co-working spaces. Including tax, the simplest membership costs around €250 per month. This isn’t expensive in many cities, but is more than double the average in Lisbon.

If you’d like to arrange a tour of Second Home, you’ll need to book an appointment in advance. While many co-working spaces don’t mind if you show up, Second Home has a strict appointment policy (and a security guard to enforce it).

Address: Mercado de Ribeira, Avenida 24 de Julho (website)

Todos

This creative warehouse in Poço do Bispo offers office rental, located in adorable 40m2 archways. It also has facilities for film makers and photographers including studios and make-up rooms. The website is a bit tricky to use, but it’s definitely worth a mention for all you creative types.

Address: R. Pereira Henriques 3, 1950 (website)

Espaço 3D

Office-y co-working space that’s situated close to the Bairro Alto in Central Lisbon. As well as co-working facilities, Espaço 3D also offers meditation and yoga at its facilities. 

Address: Rua Braamcamp 84 3rd floor, 1250-052 Lisboa (website)

WorkUp Lisboa

Those that work together, work out together at this quirky co-working space. Personal trainer led walking, cycling and running sessions are held at 6:30pm every day, and are free for all members. During the day you have access to the usual co-working perks, such as fast internet.

AddressR. Tomás da Fonseca 40A, 1600-275 Lisboa, Portugal (website)

hOurSpace

hOurSpace is a member of the Made of Lisboa community, which is made up of the city’s innovators. The space is calm and comfortable, with all the amenities you’d expect from an office (Wi-Fi, printers, scanners, free coffee). Long term users can use the space 24/7, and discounts are available if you buy hours/days in bulk.

Address: Rua Padre Luís Aparício 9, 4D 1150 -248 (website)No

Avila Coworking

Situated in the heart of Lisbon, Avila Spaces stands out as a premier coworking destination, with two prime locations at Av. da República, nº6, 1º Esq. and Av. João Crisóstomo nº 30, 5º andar.

The interiors are thoughtfully designed, featuring expansive windows that flood the space with natural light, creating an atmosphere that’s both invigorating and conducive to productivity. Comfortable chairs, a fully-equipped kitchen with unlimited free coffee, and blazing-fast wifi ensure that members have everything they need to make the most of their workday.

But Avila Spaces is more than just its physical amenities. Located centrally with a metro station right at its doorstep, it offers unparalleled accessibility to the city’s bustling life. Beyond work, the space fosters a vibrant community spirit, regularly hosting networking events that provide members with opportunities to connect, collaborate, and grow. Whether you’re looking to immerse yourself in your work on a sunny terrace or seeking to engage with fellow freelancers over a draft of Super Bock beer (which they have!), Avila Spaces has got you covered.

Address:Av. da República, nº6, 1º Esq. 1050-191 Lisbon (website)
