It used to be that all cafes in Paris would welcome remote workers and their laptops at all hours of the day. Rules have since tightened up and many have since banned laptops during peak meal times or altogether. The good news is that the city is booming with purpose-built co-working spaces for remote workers, from an old hot air balloon storage warehouse turned sleek gym and workspace, to a grandiose, fresco-painted library that will transport you to old-world Paris. Many of these are perfectly positioned to explore the city’s best restaurants and bars after work, or a lunchtime perusal of the finest art galleries and museums in Paris.

From laidback cafes with rapid WiFi to hybrid work and leisure clubs, these are the best co-working spaces for remote working in Paris.

A lofty hybrid space, La Recyclerie straddles the tracks and has a patio that becomes a shaded beer garden in summer. Inside is a bar and kitchen that serves homemade food with excellent vegetarian options.

For digital nomads, the Grand Central restaurant is open all day long and is great for bites like a cheese burger or steak frites. Outside mealtimes, there’s lots of space to spread out to work.

It has since transformed into a members-only cafe and co-working space, which occupies the ground floor, with a sleek gym in the galleries that line the atrium. The coffee, homemade cakes and sandwiches served here are all excellent. The crowd is an overlap of fitness conscious and creative types who segue from a morning gym class to their desk, and hang out in the bars that stretch along the canal after a day’s work.
