In the Ginza district of Tokyo, Japan,
one Starbucks is unlike the rest.
The two-story café, located inside the
Circles Ginza building, is the coffee chain’s
first attempt at a coworking space.
Though the bottom floor is exactly what
you expect when you walk into a Starbucks.
the top floor is decked out with
everything you could want or
need to get through the workday.
the second floor of the café
features private booths, larger
meeting areas and welcoming sofas.
As Fast Company pointed out, Starbucks Japan’s
latest endeavor is essentially just “a WeWork with
more drink options and without the monthly rent”.
the Starbucks/ThinkLab collaboration has four private
phone booths with videoconferencing capabilities, all of
which are available to book in advance in 40-minute intervals.
For many people who are stuck working from home
for the foreseeable future, a Starbucks café
optimized for coworking is a dream come true
