New York’s Neuehouse Is Taking Co-working up a Notch | Uncubed
Startup offices are often more frat house than Soho house – piles of dirty dishes, pinball machines, and some random dude passed out on a sofa.
But Neuehouse, an innovative work/community space, isn’t so. The Flatiron-based company takes its cue from boutique hotels rather than typical coworking spaces. Hospitality heavyweight David Rockwell designed the 4-floor, 50,000 sq. ft. space to shift easily from work to social, offering a screening room, library space, and professional audio/video studio.
Partner James O’Reilly told us, “We saw a need for a level of hospitality for entrepreneurs with a refined taste.” By believing a more interesting space is created from a broad range of industries, Neuehouse tries to accommodate a rich mix of start-ups and creative types among its 300+ members.
Those members are treated well. A Mario Batali-trained chef transforms workplace food to a healthy decadence that you can purchase at the café or have delivered a la room service style. Another benefit of joining: cultural programming conversations, most recently with veteran hotelier Ian Schrager.
And there’s that clubby atmosphere. “We underestimated how long people would want to stay and socialize at the bar,” O’Reilly said.
Neuehouse offers 3 levels of membership with 3-month commitments starting at $450/month. Get more information about Neuehouse’s offerings here.
