There is a new co-working/art/tech space opening on Dudley Street (round the corner from the Electric Cinema) in November, I got a bit of a preview the other day, it’s a building site at the moment but it’s already looking good.
I’ve been asked to do a talk at a co-working space this weekend. Its called www.Speedydesk.com which is based in Stechford. Being from London, I have no idea whether the location works for you however.
Good luck with your search
Just to let you all know, here at Innovation Birmingham Campus, we are offering a free trial week for tech companies to come in and use our co-working space. All you have to do is email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) to arrange when you’d like to come in. Happy to answer any questions as well
Not so much hot desking as conference room hire BUT:
On the wall in the 6th Floor ‘rest room’ in House of Fraser was an advertisement for a Meeting Room to hire.
I think it was £80 for a 14 person room but please check because that seems very cheap.
Alpha Works is a new Co-Working space in the Alpha Tower, Birmingham. There are private offices as well as Hot-Desk space. Free flow tea & coffee, amazing views, 24/7 access, social drinks monthly and café on site!
(I haven’t forgotten, Pauline! My last couple of visits into Brum have been on tight timescales.)
I’ve copied @Gemma_Wall’s link into this thread too, so everything is together:
…meeting rooms, super-fast broadband, true community feel! alphaworksb1.co.uk
UPDATED CAFES LIST WITH SOME NEW PLACES
I noticed a cafe at the crossing over to the JQ which I haven’t seen before. I’ll get the name next time there’s less sleet.
Got it off GMaps: Nettl
Next to Subway. It says coffee and free WiFi but that could be a trap as it rents work-space.
Costes Café Bar?
It’s @paulineroche who needs to know any we spot. I remember how we used to annoy my boss’s PA by only ever telling her about changes to phone numbers when she issued the quarterly list of phone numbers. Sorry Pauline! You’re doing a fine job.
Sorry I was just trying to help you name yours. I see you managed to do so in the meantime though.
You know, I used to walk past there all the time, and not once did I ever notice it. Too busy eyeing up the Subway next door no doubt
Mine’s just around the Google Corner, on the other side of Subway and I’d never noticed that before either.
