WeWork's First Paris Location Is More Glamorous Than The Ritz

by Stephanie Maida · July 13, 2017

In the age of startups and freelancer hustles, co-working spaces are quickly replacing cubicles as the desk du jour. In New York, the most luxe of these options include the women's-only Wing, and more recently, Brooklyn's Camp David. From lounge areas to cafes, they provide the ultimate setting for networking, meeting, and getting on your grind.

Of course, the OG among them is WeWork. With over 150 locations across the world, it was about time that the concept came to one of Europe's chicest - and most creative - cities: Paris. Housed in a gorgeous art deco building from the 1930s, WeWork La Fayette is located in the 9th Arrondissement, just blocks away from Gare St Lazare and the Opera Garnier. And while any place in Paris is sure to be glamorous, the architecture here is complemented by the lush decor, creating a '20s vibe that recalls the likes of Hemingway and Fitzgerald sharing ideas in a smoky cafe. But, of course, with the addition of high-speed internet.

The new location, which is now open and accepting applications, boasts a grand atrium, an endless flow of micro-roasted coffee, and multiple private conference rooms. Not to mention a cool young crowd of beautiful Parisians. To be honest, we'd rather check in here than The Ritz.
