You've probably already heard of WeWork, the international coworking movement. The company has 230 coworking spaces around the world. In 2016 it opened its first coworking venture in Sydney, and WeWork's first massive Melbourne space in the London Stores building is now open.

And when we say massive, we mean massive. With six floors and space for more than 700 creatives to shack up and compete for funniest coffee mug, it's set to become the place to work in Melbourne.

But don't expect a cookie-cutter corporate office that will put you to sleep. The interior was designed, interestingly, by graphic designer Sui Yao, and has been decorated by Australia artists Georgia Hill, Mik Shida and FunSkull. With an open-air terrace, and an endless supply of kombucha, nitro cold drip coffee and fruit-infused water, you won't mind staying late at work.

So, what kind of perks can you expect from a coworking space? The best part of coworking (apart from meeting likeminded folk and working in a beautiful office) is the events. You can schmooze at ample networking dos, lunch and learn sessions, happy hours, and even yoga and massage events. The WeWork system also gives members access to each other at locations across the globe, like your own in-real-life LinkedIn.

The location (on the corner of Bourke and Elizabeth streets) is taking enquiries now and WeWork haa already announced a second venue, opening 2018, on Collins Street.
