The best coworking spaces in Dubai

Finding a good coworking space in Dubai can be a daunting task, some only offer monthly subscriptions or aren’t well suited for focussed work.

Here’s a short list of my favorite places, perfect for getting stuff done.

No. 1: NEST coworking space

NEST is the best. The space is located inside TRYP by Wyndham. I stumbled upon this one by accident while staying at the hotel. Although relatively small, it’s usually not too busy, offering a friendly, calm environment and good facilities (coffee, snacks, meeting booths, etc.). Overall great value for money.

No. 2: Nasab

Nasab is a bit further out, located in Majan/Al Barari, but also much more spacious. Featuring not just coworking areas but also a pool landscape with a bar and restaurants. Either for work or a relaxed day on the weekend, it’s definitely worth a try.

No.3: WrkBay Cowork and cafe

Situated in the Al Karama neighborhood in Bur Dubai (just south of the Dubai Creek), WrkBay offers fantastic value for money. Part café, part coworking space, you’re free to choose whether you want to work from the common areas in the café, a shared desk or even small private offices which you can rent for the day. The coffee is excellent as well.

No. 4: The Coffee Lab

Not exactly a coworking space, this beautiful 2 story café with amazing views towards Port Rashid is also a favorite with the Emirati locals. Many people use this one to study, hold meetings or work on their laptops. The coffee is one of the best I’ve had in Dubai.
