4 Great Coworking Spaces in Moscow

Cabinet Lounge

Cabinet Lounge

Posh Coworking 

Located in the very heart of the city, on Lubyanka, just a short walk from the Kremlin, Cabinet Lounge offers what might be called upscale coworking. In the same building as the popular restaurant Mandarin Combustible, across from the new St. Regis hotel, the inside of Cabinet Lounge looks more like a gentleman’s club rather than your run-of-the-mill coworking space, complete with parquet floors and bar stands. And it is priced accordingly: a one-day visit is 3,500 rubles ($62). 

DI Telegraph

Coworking in a landmark 

DI Telegraph, located in the landmark Central Telegraph building on Tverskaya, offers coworking services to cutting-edge IT companies and startups. There are regular conferences and cultural events in the halls next door. Prices start from 800 rubles ($14) per day and 7,600 rubles per month, which includes IT support, access to printers, plus unlimited tea, coffee, and water.

Start Hub 

Hip Coworking Option 

Start Hub is located at Flacon Art and Design Center, a former glassworks plant that has now been turned into a hipster’s paradise, overflowing with design studios, cool boutiques and bars. At Flacon, there are plenty of options to eat or attend a lecture or a workshop at one of the creative spaces. For those looking for workspace, Start Hub offers five rooms with white brick walls and wooden furniture: two of these are for meetings, two for work and one for leisure (it even comes with hammocks and table games). There is also a conference hall for lectures about startups, as well as a fully equipped kitchen and printers/scanners. The prices start from 400 rubles ($7) per day. If you need to buy access for a whole month, it will cost you 6,000 rubles. 

Rabochaya Stantsiya

Coworking in a park 

Rabochaya Stantsiya or Workstation is located in the middle of Gorky Park, about a 10-minute walk from the Leninsky Prospekt metro station. Apart from water, coffee and tea, one of the bonuses is the panoramic views of the Neskuchny Garden and a large summer terrace—you can watch the squirrels play while you work. The space itself features a spacious work hall with wide wooden tables and plenty of skylights in the ceiling that provide natural light. Open around the clock, Workstation has showers, lockers and a kitchen space. Prices start from 750 rubles ($13.5) per day and from 13,000 a month. Lockers and meeting rooms might be extra, depending on the plan.
