Top 5 Co-Working Spaces in Bangkok for 2021

In ‘Pre-Covid’ days, the co-working space business in Bangkok and beyond was booming. The name ‘WeWork’ was synonymous with co-working and they dominating the global scene, having first entered Bangkok in 2019. However, their failed IPO and utter capitulation starting in the same year helped to accelerate the rate at which competitors started popping up in cities all over the world.

In 2020, along came Covid and widespread lockdowns, with central business districts in virtually every city laying empty. WeWork probably thought things couldn’t get any worse after their last year, but of course, they were wrong. Tenancies being broken, long-term contracts up in the air, and new Work From Home policies being implemented across the board, from small companies to multi-national conglomerates.

The large commercial landlords began to feel the pinch, as their massive multi-national tenants decided to downsize their 1,000+ people offices, with staff splitting their time between home and a smaller, smart-working environment.

In step the co-working companies that survived the lockdowns and made it to 2021, with their flexible contracts, smart-working environments, hot-desking, breakout zones, hyper-networking capabilities, beers, and coffees on tap, and, of course, beanbags!

We’ve compiled our list of the best 5 local brands offering co-working space in Bangkok right now.

Facilities include everything from free tea and coffee, high-speed internet, printing/scanning, and events hosting. Opening hours are between 8 am and 5 pm.

Best Features: So much natural light flooding into the offices all day with nice little breakout areas throughout. See for yourself with these 3D walk-throughs of the Sathorn Office – walkthrough 1 and walkthrough 2.

3. The Work Loft

Open seven days per week, The Work Loft is just a short walk from the Silom MRT station, so everything you could ever need is within a short walking distance. But in-house, they have it all anyway, with meeting rooms, private offices, the café and a great terrace just to chill on when you want to get away from the computer. Did I mention free snacks and refreshments? Because they have it all here! Standard office hours are 8am to 8pm but access is granted 24/7.

Best Features: Free trial option means you can give it a go and if you’re not as impressed as we were, you can move onto the next one! We also love the natural light in this place and how it makes an office place so much more pleasant.

Pricing: Hot Desking from ฿300 per day and Serviced Offices from ฿14,000 per month for one desk

Address: 281/19-23 3F-6F, NST One Building, Silom Rd, Silom, Bangrak Bangkok Thailand 10500

Nearest Transport: Silom MRT

4. Launchpad

Right in the middle of the CBD, this 2,000 square meter co-working office space houses more than 100 desks, each one custom-fitted to maximize comfort. Launchpad models its office space on those found in Silicon Valley. With 5 meeting rooms, you can get down to the serious stuff and then take a moment to relax in one of the breakout zones where the comfy sofas and beanbags can be found. Dedicated offices can cater for up to 16 people, making it ideal for those startups with a significant workforce already.

Best Features: Funky yellow decor, a bit like Kliquedesk, but their rates when purchasing bundle packages are second to none. Amazing value here.

Pricing: Hot Desking from ฿180 per day and Fixed Desks from ฿4,500 per month per desk

Address: 139 Pan Road, Silom, Bangrak, Bangkok 10500 Thailand

Nearest Transport: Saint Louis BTS

5. E88

Named after the building that hosts it, this incredible fifth-story office space is located just a short walk from the Phra Khanong BTS Station, making it a great location, with all the amenities nearby. Besides what’s out on the streets, the E88 building hosts its own restaurants and eateries, so you won’t need to leave the building until home time! With its stylish artwork and furniture to enjoy you can understand why this venue hosts much more than just desks and meeting rooms – don’t be surprised if you see a wedding taking place when you do some weekend overtime!

Best Features: Cool interior design with the rooftop access and super convenient location.

Pricing: Hot Desking from ฿300 per day

Address: W DISTRICT, E88 Building Flr.1 Sukhumvit 69-71, Phra Khanong Nuea, Watthana, Bangkok 10110

Nearest Transport: Phra Khanong BTS Station

We see the rise of the co-working space in Bangkok and beyond continuing well into the future, and would like to leave you with this final thought, as quoted by Jes Stately, CEO of Barclays “Putting 7,000 people in a building may be a thing of the past”.

    Why would “putting 7000 people into an office building” be a thing of the past?? Covidiot nonsense! A lot of buildings fits much more than that – with our without covid-paranoia.
