Grind, A Unique Members-Only Workspace in Manhattan

Grind, A Unique Members-Only Workspace in Manhattan

Here are a few photos from the inaugural Liquid Lounge event at Grind, a beautiful new members-only workspace in Manhattan, which includes a wonderful self-serve Intelligentsia coffee bar. Grind was recently profiled in Fast Company.


We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter

  1. It’s almost like a hackerspace… but clean…

  2. Very interesting concept. It brings the definition of “work” to a new level…..

  3. I’m not convinced. It’s expensive, exclusive, referral-based–how exactly is this not a country club?

    I love alternative work spaces and collaborative outreach, but I love those things because they provide me with unexpected stimulation and radically new material with which to work. I don’t think I’d get that at a members-only club.

  4. @Kristin – can you post alternatives for folks to check out?

  5. I wish I could; I hate to bicker and not offer alternatives. I don’t know NY work spaces; I do know what we do in my area, and none are great alternatives. A lot of people work in predictable public areas: coffee shops, libraries, etc. We all know the drawbacks, but I do think there’s something to be said for the relative openness of those spaces.

    Some people here rent studios in old warehouses. I like this a little more: studio space here runs less than a Grind membership, offers a private working space in addition to interaction with all the other renters, and exhibition space for regular public walk-through. I’d love to see a model like this evolving to become a more fluid collaborative setting, and one used by a larger variety of independent workers.

    I’m sorry I’m not more helpful! I’m happy to see more options presenting themselves.
