    FROM THE Spring 2016 ISSUE
     

If your work office is too noisy or your home office is in too much disarray to actually get anything done, there’s an app for that. It’s called Deskpass, from a Chicagobased company called Desktime, and it offers a subscription platform providing an online directory of 25 co-working spaces you can reserve with the tap of a button.

For $199 a month you can have a different workspace every day, or for $99 you can reserve a new space eight days out of the month.

“[Each] commits to giving you a desk, Internet and some coffee. Past that, every space is different,” says Sam Rosen, Deskpass founder. One is located inside a climbing gym. Another, called Nextspace, has phone booths. Locations are currently available in River North, West Loop, Central Loop, Lakeview, Gold Coast/ Old Town, Wicker Park, Logan Square, Ravenswood, Wilmette, Glenview and Gurnee, and new locations are in the works.
