Best places to work from in Malmö
Looking for a new place to work from in Malmö? Here’s a list of my favorite co-working spaces, cafés, professional spaces, and other spots that I’ve discovered in Malmö.
BEST CO-WORKING SPACES
The best located co-working space in Malmö. Box Space Co-working at Gustav Adolfs Torg is in the very heart of Malmö…www.boxspacemalmo.com
My favorite place in Malmö. For just 1900 SEK/month you get 24/7 access to this great spot right by Gustav Adolfs Torg in central Malmö. Tea/coffee included, great WiFi, calm and friendly atmosphere, printer, and a conference room. Great value for money. The space just recently opened so be sure to check it out if you’re looking for a new place.
Cons: If it wasn’t for the hard chairs this place would be perfect for me. It would be nice if there were some cushions at least.
UPDATE: Cushions are now available! :)
Minc works with startups that have global ambitions. We offer coaching and advice in business development, fundraising…www.minc.se
One of the core startup locations in Malmö, and a great friendly spot to meet people, grab some lunch/coffee, or get some work done. Free tea/coffee + there’s a decent lunch restaurant in the building.
Cons: WiFi reliability/speed isn’t great. The open-space area can get pretty noisy. So be sure to find a quiet corner or bring some noise-cancelling headphones if you need to focus.
BEST PROFESSIONAL SPACES
A very cosy and modern space in central Malmö. If you’re looking for a quiet professional space with proper desks and chairs and very fast WiFi then this is definitely one of the best options. Their full-time membership costs 2950 kr/month, which feels like a pretty good deal.
Cons: Not suitable for short-term membership.
This office environment offers everything needed for a modern and creative working life in the heart of Malmö: first…www.unitedspaces.com
A high-end, modern, and well-designed workspace that’s cozy, quiet, and comfortable — and the staff is super friendly. If you’re looking for quality facilities and infrastructure then this place is probably as good as it gets. There’s a large open lounge area, flex office areas, private office rooms, kitchen, lots of meeting rooms, and phone booths. Membership also includes unlimited tea/coffee, and fruit, breakfast, candy on certain days throughout the week.
Cons: The cheapest option starts at 2 900 SEK/month, which gives you access to the lounge area. If you want a flex membership with a proper desk and chair you’ll have to pay 4 900 SEK/month. It’s expensive compared to many other options, but the standard and quality is very high.
BEST CAFÈS TO WORK FROM
Vi är en cafékedja som startade år 2003. Vi finns i Göteborg, Växjö, Jönköping och Malmö. På Condeco värnar vi om…www.condeco.com
A large café in central Malmö. Be sure to check out the second floor, which offers plenty of seating and lots of power outlets.
Cons: I’ve heard from some that it can get pretty busy/loud at peak hours. I was there on a Sunday afternoon though, and it was pretty much empty.
Djäkne Kaffebar, Co-working och Startup Studiowww.djakne.se
The café is run by a local tech company, and it’s a popular destination in the startup scene. They offer a quiet and friendly atmosphere and focus on quality coffee. They also offer a co-working membership giving you access to the second floor. I have yet to test that though.
Cons: WiFi could be better and the seats in the café/open-space were pretty hard. I couldn’t really stay for too long.
Espresso House (Stortorget)
There are plenty of Espresso Houses to choose from (most of which are pretty decent options). In particular I like this spot for the location, and the counter-seating (with comfortable chairs).
Cons: As with most cafés, this place tends to get pretty busy/loud at peak hours. Mornings and evenings are pretty chill though.
Vincafé i Malmö precis intill Malmö Live. Kom hit och njut av något av våra fantastiska viner!cafelive.se
A cosy café and lunch spot on a side street by Malmö Live. There’s plenty of seating, drinks, and food choices.
Cons: I think it’s a popular lunch spot, so it’s probably best to go in the morning or afternoon if you’re looking for some quiet.
BEST “SECRET” SPOT
Here - the vibrant meeting point in Malmo - you'll experience art exhibits, DJs and events in our Clarion Living Room.www.nordicchoicehotels.com
I recently found this hidden gem. Past the lobby of the hotel at Malmö Live you’ll find the “Living Room Café” space. I guess I would best describe it as a lounge area. There are tons of couch/sofa corners, but also large work tables. There’s also a bar area where you can buy drinks — but the great thing about this place is that there’s no need to buy anything if you’re just looking for a place to sit and get some work done.
Cons: Limited number of power outlets. Also I think the WiFi requires registration, which is a bit annoying.
Let me know if I’ve missed your favorite spot!
