An increasingly uncertain job market has provoked a conscious shift towards entrepreneurship and freelancing within today’s working population. Barcelona is among those cities in Spain that have welcomed this change with open arms, hosting a thriving working population across approximately 100 coworking spaces that have blossomed throughout the city in recent years.

At Celebreak, we understand the need to work with a strong, supportive community to get the best out of your job. To make it easy for you to pick your coworking space in Barcelona, we have picked out the top spaces in the city with the right facilities and environment to support your business.

1. Betahaus

Betahaus Coworking Space in Barcelona

(Credit: Betahaus)The year was 2009. The city of Berlin before the dawn of today’s startup culture. Six friends – all students – were looking for a place where they could create and collaborate freely, away from the confines of the traditional office environment. That is how Betahaus – Berlin’s first coworking – came into existence. Today, they host coworking spaces in six cities, including Barcelona.

The coworking space in Barcelona is strategically located in central Gràcia, just a 10-minute walk from the Casa Vicens Gaudí down the Carrer de les Carolines. Betahaus organises regular events and meetups for its community, including the annual Betapitch, which brings startups from all over the world to one global platform.

According to the founders, “We called our space Betahaus because we believe life should be about always being open to change, and never getting stuck in routines just because they’re comfortable. We’re always learning and growing. Always making mistakes and always improving.” And that is precisely what 4 floors of open workspace with 193 seats offer you here in Barcelona!

This cozy coworking gets its name – and culture – from the industrial-era housing patterns in Barcelona, where people were housed in quarters to save space. Quartdenou, or ‘New Quarters’ is a modern take on this concept, with a “small big family” working together under one roof.

Located just a few steps from the beach, on the Carrer de Sevilla, this coworking space offers a peaceful location to set up your work. Quartdenou organises weekly activities for its members, from surfing and rowing off the beach to workshops that bring you closer to their community.

6. Meet BCN

Meet BCN was born a little over 9 years ago, when Isabel Pérez, a renewable energy engineer and project manager, felt it was time to begin working for herself. Even as she enjoyed going solo, it didn’t take her long to miss the charm of a social work environment. That was when Isabel set about creating her own working space in Barcelona – a conducive environment for entrepreneurs and freelancers to work and collaborate, learn, and grow together.

This cozy coworking space is located in the bustling central district of Eixample, just a couple of minutes from the Diagonal subway station. The warm, homely vibe it exudes may be in sharp contrast to the organised chaos on the other side of its walls, but this only makes Meet BCN the perfect place to work in peace with little to distract you inside.

Meet BCN offers a number of plans, with spaces designed to fit any requirements – presenting daily and weekly passes to private spaces on rent by the month.

Coco is easily accessible in the center of the city, just a two-minute walk from the Poble-Sec subway station on the Carrer de Manso. After a long break in light of the pandemic, the coworking space has now resumed regular events at the premises with everything from themed breakfasts to workshops that are open to all.

Aside from highly economical and low commitment plans, Coco also includes free food and coffee in each of their offerings, so be sure to accept their warm welcome at least once while you’re in the city.
