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.

  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.
