6 Perfect Places To Work Or Study In Columbus

Sometimes, finding a quiet place to get a little work finished is easier said than done.

Whether you’re writing a paper for school or brainstorming a special project for work, there’s something wonderfully helpful about getting out of your usual space. Inspiration can strike over a cup of coffee or while you’re curled up on a comfy sofa, inspiration that you may not have found stuck in your dorm room or cubicle.

If you are looking for a great place to focus on checking some stuff off of your to-do list, we’ve got some suggestions!

Stauf’s Coffee Roasters

via Facebook

About: I’ve been a longtime fan of Stauf’s. They have a handful of locations around Columbus where you can get cozy with your laptop, enjoy a delicious brew (or two) and hunker down. If you’re in search of a lot of natural light and comfy furniture, I highly recommend their Discovery District location.

About: Not all co-working spaces are created equal. Serendipity Labs is absolutely stunning. With two locations, the spaces are open, bright, and come with fun amenities. It doesn’t matter if you work from home and you’re looking for a place a couple of days a week, or if you just need a quiet place to study for the day, Serendipity Labs can and will accommodate you.
