Coworking is a relatively recent trend in which many different individuals and businesses all share the same office space. They’re a great way to meet and collaborate with a variety of different people or to work from home without having to rent out an entire office.
Coworking has taken off, particularly in larger cities like Los Angeles, where you can pretty much find a coworking space on every corner. With so many options, it can actually be a bit overwhelming when you’re trying to find a coworking space that works for your particular needs.
Some offer extra amenities, such as meeting rooms, in addition to office space. Some focus on the communal aspect of coworking and others focus more on providing a quiet and private space for freelancers. So, as you can see, finding the right coworking space can be quite tricky—which is why we’ve compiled a list of some of the best coworking spaces in Los Angeles, and given some reasons why we think they’re so great.
WeWork is the coworking company that started it all. It’s been around since 2010 and has expanded to offer spaces in over 89 cities across the globe.

Amenities such as IT support, office supplies (including printers), private phone booths, coffee and beer shops, and 24/7 access.
