Working from home is great, but not all the time. While most correspondence makes sense virtually, there’s a certain magic of meeting with your team in person—safely, of course, and when inspiration strikes. With the pandemic accelerating what was already a trend toward flexible work arrangements, it’s quickly becoming the norm. Employees report higher levels of productivity, less stress, and a better work/life balance when allowed to choose (and, with Deskpass’ filters, even curate) their ideal workplace environment.
Spring is in the air, and now is the perfect time to get out of the house and check in to some of Chicago’s best coworking spaces, all available on the Deskpass network.
Space: TeamWorking by TechNexus
Great for: remote teams
When it comes to flexible work solutions, TeamWorking at TechNexus is tough to top. They offer virtual-enabled small group meeting rooms, many large TVs on rolling carts that can connect anywhere virtually, and the ability for teams to access their shared coworking areas. There’s also a roof terrace, wellness center, podcast studio, and more.
Space: Bond Collective
Great for: large team meetings
Bond Collective sure knows how to make a great first impression. It’s a design-lover’s dream; get ready for massive (yet tasteful) ceiling chandeliers, plush sofas, and leather chairs. Spanning 70,000 square feet of private and shared office space, conference rooms accommodate up to 12 people, and their boardroom can fit 20—whiteboards, presentation displays, and multimedia connectors and adaptors included.
Great for: networking
Mox.E is a BIPOC-owned and business-focused workspace with a social-impact mission. They support ethnic diversity and foster the spirit of entrepreneurial collaboration. It’s a go-to coworking space for under-represented entrepreneurs to build, connect, and capitalize their businesses. In addition to three meeting rooms and a private office, Mox.E hosts networking events and workshops.
Great for: corporate meetings
Located in one of Chicago’s newest and most noteworthy skyscrapers, Servcorp’s 17th-floor space features floor-to-ceiling windows offering panoramic views of the Chicago River. The fully-furnished workspace balances privacy and open space, with a selection of offices, boardrooms, meeting rooms, and communal areas to work from. They have a second location in the Loop.
Space: Guild Row
Great for: creators
Designed by emerging Chicago-based firm, DAAM (an acronym for Design, Architecture, Art, and Making), the Guild Row campus includes a coworking space, teaching kitchen, woodshed, live fire cooking station, and a members lounge with a cafe and bar. It’s definitely a go-to for creatives of all industries; you’ll find everyone here from nonprofit professionals and educators to artists and activists.
Space: Dayhouse Coworking
Great for: working parents
This women-owned workspace has parent-friendly policies in place, an entrepreneurial energy, and leads with a focus on workday wellness. Housed in a vintage industrial building with exposed brick and beams, it has West Loop luxury vibes with suburban convenience. Amenities include conference rooms, a quiet work zone, phone booths, lactation room, and more.

Hybrid work—a flexible arrangement where employees can work from home, their office, a coworking space, or all three—allows hiring teams to tap into larger talent pools, increase diversity at their company, and retain happy employees. Here are four elements employees want most in a workplace:
Proximity to their home
Many workers enjoy walking or biking to the space and exploring the surrounding neighborhoods to visit lunch spots nearby, saving time in their day and leading to better work/life balance.
A private space to take calls
Phone booths are becoming increasingly important, especially for those who cowork from the common area of a coworking space but need privacy for phone calls or virtual meetings.
A professional environment
Environment is everything. Spaces with an inspiring atmosphere, a variety of seating options, reliable WiFi, and easy access to public transportation are top of mind.
Employees prioritize workspaces with phone booths, meeting room technology, printing stations, and standing desks. A space’s amenities are featured on its Deskpass profile.
