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.
