Best Coworking Spaces in Lisbon
Lisbon offers a great variety of creative and inspirational co-working spaces for digital nomads and other freelancers, and has been quick to embrace the work-where-there’s-Wi-Fi culture that comes with both. The spaces here aren’t just your usual, run-of-the-mill open plan office spaces, and you can expect to find a vibrant and uplifting space to suit all tastes. And, if you prefer an even more casual option, then you can head to one of the city’s many diverse coffee shops and cafes, which offer excellent capability, wonderful coffee and of course, pasteis-de-nata that are simply to die for.
With such a lot of choice, it’s tempting to work your way around them all – and better still, you can.
Here are some of the top co-working spaces and coffee shops with Wi-Fi in the city to consider for those days where you want to get stuff done. As an added bonus, they are also great places to meet other digital nomads, and enhance your Lisbon social scene as a result.
For reference, the average internet speed in Lisbon is good, at around 20.8mbps, and all co-working spaces offer reliable connections.
