For all those freelancers, screenwriters, and artists in Los Angeles who have the freedom to work remotely, it can get a bit mundane setting up shop at home each day. Wouldn’t it be nice to sprawl out in a hidden oasis with free WiFi? Look no further than the West Hollywood Design District. We’ve got you covered! Check out our top spots to work remotely.
West Hollywood Library
The library is the classic quiet space to nestle up with your laptop and work. The WeHo library is clean, organized, and decked out in modern furniture. Enjoy plenty of natural light from the many wall to ceiling windows. Grab a spot with a grand view, looking over the Pacific Design Center, or you can even reserve a private room! You get 3 hours of free parking with validation. When leaving, don’t forget to check out the elaborate art murals on the parking structure by the famous Retna, Kenny Scharf, and Shepard Fairey.
Alfred Coffee & Kitchen
Step into Alfred Coffee for a chic atmosphere with wood walls and modern art featured by new artists every month. With the baristas toward the back of the shop a few steps down, you can distance yourself from the bustling Melrose Place shoppers, passing by for their daily caffeine fix. You will find plenty of fellow freelancers, collaborating on projects at the farm table or posted up on the patio with their pup. There is 2 hour metered street parking and I suggest you get a spot early.
Once you are past the extravagant furniture and take the stairs up 3 flights past dozens of ornate gold framed mirrors, you have made it. Prepare to be stunned by breathtaking panoramic views of the West Hollywood Design District. This 10,000sq ft rooftop park is complete with plants, shade canopies, and the most lavish lounge furniture around. Need a lunch break? Head down to Urth Caffe across the street and bring your food back up to the roof! With a soothing playlist in the backdrop, this hidden oasis is the perfect remote office. . There is plenty of metered street parking and free Wi-Fi.
Verve Coffee Roasters
Verve is one big, bright space with plenty of seating options. Enjoy a cup of coffee outside on the great patio. Get there early and plant yourself by an outlet, as this is a popular spot with free WiFi. The super mellow vibes and stylish decor will keep you coming back. You can find lots of metered street parking spaces.
This minimalistic hipster haven is perfect to get your creative juices flowing. The shop has a Scandinavian aesthetic that is super Instagrammable. The Assembly has a great snacks and coffee for purchase as well as friendly staff. There is even an garden in the back with outdoor seating. With free WiFi and plenty of metered street parking, what more could you want?
