15 Best Coworking Spaces in Lisbon in 2023

15 Best Coworking Spaces in Lisbon in 2023

Welcome to this comprehensive guide to the best coworking spaces in Lisbon. In recent years, Lisbon has cemented its reputation as one of the best cities in the world for digital nomads.

It has amazing weather, great food, an abundance of bars and cafes, heaps of culture, and reasonable prices (compared with other Western European capital cities at least). And to top that all off, the gorgeous beaches of the Sintra coast are just a 30-minute drive from the center of the city.

There’s a lot to love about living in Lisbon – it’s a fantastic city. In fact, it’s one of my favorite cities in Europe. And, if you’re a digital nomad like me, you’ll be glad to know that Lisbon is also home to some of the best coworking spots in the world.

15 Best Coworking Spaces in Lisbon

There’s a strong coworking scene in Lisbon. And with more than 50 coworking spaces spread throughout the city, you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to finding a place to get your work done.

I’ve spent time living and working here myself and loved it. To help you decide which spot to pick, here’s my pick of the 15 best coworking spaces in Lisbon:

1. Heden Santa Apolónia

First off, Heden has four different coworking spaces in Lisbon. Their Santa Apolónia branch is located right on the Lisbon waterfront and offers fantastic views of the Tagus River.

The space is housed in a contemporary building with floor-to-ceiling windows, so the interior is light, airy, and inspiring. There’s a great community feel, with regular social events and workshops, including cooking classes, live music evenings, and movie screenings.

It’s also located a mere 5-minute walk away from the historic Santa Apolónia train and Metro station, so is easy to access via public transport from various parts of the city.

Address: Doca Jardim do Tabaco, Terminal de Cruzeiros de Lisboa – Edifício NE 1st floor, 1100-651 Lisboa, Portugal. Click here for directions.

Membership Options and Costs

Hot-desking costs €250 per month. Fixed-desk membership costs €330 per month and allows you 24/7 access to the space. Private offices (also with 24/7 access) start from €660 per month.

Day passes are not available

There’s sometimes a waiting list to join (although the fact it’s so popular is a good sign!)

2. Second Home Lisbon

Second Home has coworking spaces in Lisbon, London, and Los Angeles. Their Lisbon branch is located inside the beautiful 19th-century Mercado de Ribeira building.

Inside, the space is a calming, green oasis with more than a thousand lush plants and lots of natural light. It honestly feels more like a giant greenhouse than a coworking space and is an excellent spot for those who (like me) take creative inspiration from nature.

This is one of the most unusual coworking spaces I’ve ever seen, and I love it. If you enjoy being surrounded by greenery, be sure to check this place out – it may well be the best coworking spot in Lisbon for you.

Address: Mercado de Ribeira, Av. 24 de Julho 1o andar, 1200-479 Lisboa, Portugal. Click here for directions.

3. Village Underground Lisboa

apartments in Lisbon

Village Underground is another one of the most unique coworking spaces in Lisbon. It’s made using repurposed shipping containers, old double-decker buses, and other bits of industrial machinery.

This place reminds me a lot of the original Boxpark in London. As you’d expect, it’s full of trendy hipster types, and creative professionals. Like most hipster hangouts, this spot is located in a former industrial area of the city that’s recently been redeveloped.

It also has a recording studio on site, and you’re likely to rub shoulders with a diverse range of creative people here. In the evenings, the place transforms into a live music venue and events space – it’s very cool.

Address: Av. da Índia 52, 1300-299 Lisboa, Portugal. Click here for directions.

It has a great range of flexible workstations, including open-plan areas, communal tables, and private booths, all designed with productivity and comfort in mind.

There’s lots of natural light, and various areas of the coworking space offer great views of the vibrant Santa Cruz neighborhood. The space hosts regular networking and social events, and there’s a strong emphasis on meeting and collaborating with your fellow coworkers.

The Lisbon branch is situated between Bairro Alto and Alfama – two of my favorite neighborhoods in the city. From here, you can easily walk to most of the city’s most famous sights, and there are absolutely tons of amazing bars, cafes, and restaurants nearby.

One thing to bear in mind is that this space is only open Monday – Friday, 9 am – 6 pm, so it might not be the best place for you to cowork in Lisbon if you need to work outside of these times.

Address: Tv. Pedras Negras 1 1.º Direito, 1100-404 Lisboa, Portugal. Click here for directions.

Membership Options and Costs

There are several IDEA coworking spaces in Lisbon. The Palácio Sotto Mayor branch is located in a large basement level underneath the Sotto Mayor Palace, a grand 19th-century mansion close to the Parque Eduardo VII.

Its central location means you’re close to many great places to eat and drink, and it’s also very easy to access using public transport (including Lisbon’s iconic old trams).

Where To Stay in Lisbon For Romance

Resvés is one of my favorite coworking spaces in Lisbon. It’s located on the edge of the stylish Príncipe Real district, on a quiet side street that’s just minutes away from the tranquil Jardim da Estrela park.

The staff here are warm and friendly, the internet is fast, and there’s a great selection of comfy places (both indoor and outdoor) to get through some work. There’s a range of events and social activities throughout the week, including pilates, yoga classes, and communal lunches.

The atmosphere is very calm inside, and the whole space is decorated with the work of local artists. It’s open 24/7 (for dedicated desk members only), and they even have an on-site recording and production studio (great for podcasters).

Address: R. Saraiva de Carvalho 1C, 1250-240 Lisboa, Portugal. Click here for directions.

This place is the epitome of industrial chic. It has gorgeous floor-to-ceiling windows, lots of polished concrete, and exposed steel girders.

Add to its design, comfortable designer furniture, great lighting, the odd piece of historic factory machinery, and loads of space, and you’ve got yourself a seriously cool coworking space. It’s popular with tech workers, start-up founders, and other entrepreneurs.

Address: R. Tabaqueira A2, 1950-256 Lisboa, Portugal. Click here for directions.

The Lisbon branch is located just north of Bairro Alto, close to the sweeping Avenida da Liberdade. It’s easily accessible via tram and is close to lots of shops and restaurants.

However, for me, the stand-out feature of this coworking space is that it offers all members (even hot-desking members) 24/7 access to the space. The majority of coworking spaces in Lisbon, if they even offer 24/7 access at all, only make this available to fixed desk members.

Address: Tv. do Fala-Só 13B, 1250-096 Lisboa, Portugal. Click here for directions.

Membership Options and Costs

A hot desking membership costs €159 per month, and a dedicated desk costs €249 per month. Both types of membership include 24/7 access.

Podcasting room

Lisbon-Cowork prides itself on being one of the most affordable coworking spaces in Lisbon.

Despite having a fairly no-frills appearance, this place still manages to provide all of the essentials that make up a great coworking space; comfortable chairs, reliable fast internet, lots of plants, and even free tea and coffee.

They even have a sauna (although you need to pay extra for that), luggage storage facilities, and wellness classes on their amazing roof terrace. I like that you can buy a half-day pass too (see below).

NOW (which stands for “No Office Work”) occupies a historic 3-story warehouse on the waterfront.

Where most coworking spaces lean into the modern, minimalist aesthetic, this place is the total opposite. Inside, you’ll find giant wooden beams, old wooden floors, and exposed stone walls. It looks more like a medieval castle than a coworking space.

If you’re looking for somewhere different to come and get work done, check out this place. It’s also super affordable.
