Yes, another one. First Spacious opened up inside of DBGB Kitchen and Bar, just a stone’s throw from The Yard, the new Ludlow House, and the Bowery location of ever-expanding WeWork. (Okay, that last one was just a joke.) Now they’re all getting some competition, because Breather is opening a new outpost on the Bowery this afternoon.
Breather is a bit different from its coworking brethren in the sense that they only offer rooms (and WiFi, which goes without saying) instead of all the flashy, open-space amenities of other New York-based co-working spaces. Packy McCormick, the brand’s New York general manager, believes this allows clients to fully appreciate the privacy and accompanying productivity that the light-filled spaces create.
The company’s first downtown location, on the fifth floor of 135 Bowery, will feature four rooms that are available to rent. The two front rooms (which rent from $75 to $80 per hour) are perfect for larger meetings with clients or a team, McCormick explained. “We have floor-to-ceiling windows to look out onto the Bowery Savings Bank,” he said. “They have loads of natural light.”
The two smaller rooms (each $45 per hour) are perfect for anything ranging to “one-on-one coaching sessions, interviews, photo shoots,” and more, he explained.
So, now you know exactly where to hold the planning meeting for your hot new coworking startup.
