Nearly 6 months into quarantine and pandemic restrictions, and it’s safe to say that cabin fever is a real thing. Especially for those of us who have transformed our living situations into at-home offices for the time being. We don’t know about you, but we’re tired of working at our dining room tables and couches. Luckily for us, Miami’s got some great alternative options to work from home outside of the house:
With newly set restrictions allowing for businesses to move indoors at a reduced capacity, there are multiple co-working spaces that have both indoor and outdoor spaces to get those creative juices flowing at affordable rates. FORUM recently opened in Downtown Coral Gables and offers endless perks and resources whether virtual or in-person. Thynk Global is another great co-working space that not only offers aid for small businesses in need, but also focused on building a place where people of color and allies can create, collaborate, and build for the future. Minds CoWork is fresh space in Wynwood for emerging creatives, and you can test out the space for a week for free.

While the hospitality industry has been hit hard during the pandemic, hotels are making their many gathering spaces a working from home-focused option for anyone in need of a day out of the house. The Standard finally opened last week and they have multiple areas for a good posting up, plus one of the best happy hours in the city for when you work day comes to an end. Mr. C in Coconut Grove is offering a “Your Zen Office” special for rooms that includes presentation screenings, package deliveries, and prix fixe menus. The W Miami in Brickell is also offering a special day rate for those in need of a quiet place to get work done.

If you’re still skeptical about enclosed spaces during this time, we don’t blame you and we agree that it’s better to err on the side of caution when it comes to safety. The Alchemist coffee shop in Aventura provides possibly one of the most charming courtyards for catching up on e-mails with some seriously delicious coffee and bites. The Citadel has always boasted one of the best rooftops in the city, plus they’ve recently expanded street-level outdoor seating. Giralda Plaza in Coral Gables has multiple options for dining and working outdoors like Threefold Cafe, Pasion Del Cielo, and more.
