With Kenya being the largest and most dynamic economy in East Africa, working in Nairobi puts you at the heart of all the action, hence its thriving community of coworking spaces. Today, we’ve compiled 7 of the coolest workspaces in the Kenyan capital that you can book into right now with NearU (just read to the end for more info, you know the drill).
For foodies: Workstyle, Waiyaki Way - from $2pp
First up, we have one of two offices operated by Workstyle, with Waiyaki Way being their flagship location - and for good reason. In this avant-garde space you’ll find an on-site coffee shop, meeting rooms, and event space, all with stunning views over the city skyline.
You’ll also find several eateries nearby to visit on your lunch break or after work; like The Arbor Place, a local gem serving an eclectic menu of Italian and Southeast Asian inspired foods.
For readers: KOFISI Riverside Drive - from $20pp
Another chain with locations across the city is KOFISI, with this office being found in the growing business district of Riverside Drive. This workspace is finished to the highest degree and splashed with plenty of colour to keep you engaged during your working day.
It also holds an impressive book collection, which will surely tempt anyone who likes to spend time reading when they’re not at their laptop.
For early-birds: The MintHub - from $4.50pp (KES500pp)
In this cosy office, located in Westlands, you’ll find a wide range of facilities and workspaces on offer - from virtual offices to private meeting rooms, there’s something to suit every workers’ need.
Something to be noted about this space, however, is that it does have an earlier closing time of 1pm as standard, so ideal for anyone who finds themselves especially productive before lunch.
For plant-lovers: KOFISI Westlands - from $20pp
Boasting the largest co-working space in Nairobi with over 30,000 square feet split between working areas, a shared kitchen, specialist strategy rooms and breakout lounges, KOFISI Westlands should be on any work-related bucket list.
As with all of their locations, this office is kitted out to the highest degree; but we especially love how much indoor greenery there is on offer, something that always helps to boost mood.
For concentration: Workstyle, Westlands Road- from $2pp
This bright space is Workstyle’s second offering to the city, and it doesn’t disappoint. The light, open layout gives this office an airyness that doesn’t leave workers feeling boxed in - perfect for anyone working on a heavy project or getting bogged down into some research.
For high-flyers: KOFISI Upper Hill - from $20pp
Located in Upper Hill, this workspace definitely lives up to its name as you’ll be able to see from the breath-taking views on offer in their meeting rooms.
It’s also just a stone’s throw away from a number of embassies and high-profile hotels, like the Fairview and the Nairobi Club, so perfect for anyone visiting on a work-ation or meeting with important clients.
For sun-worshippers: KOFISI Karen - from $20pp
One of KOFISI’s newest locations, you’ll find their Karen office equipped with all the modern furnishings you’d expect of this fantastic provider. Plus, they also have a unique selling point in their wrap-around terrace, the perfect place to take a coffee break in the sun while overlooking the city between meetings.
