From a press release:
“Washington, D.C.-based cove has launched its Dupont Circle Productive Space, giving modern professionals, knowledge workers and grad students a compelling alternative to working from a crowded coffee shop or their lonely living room.
For the price of a latte, cove members can be productive with company for the afternoon – and the coffee comes included.
Following the opening of cove-Dupont Circle, the start-up will unveil additional Productive Spaces in neighborhoods across Washington in the coming months, providing a network of locations to work, meet and collaborate. The second site, on D.C.’s thriving 14th Street, is slated to open in mid-December. Each cove location has all the essential tools for productive work – Wi-Fi, color printing, scanning and conference rooms, along with free beverages – in a clean, comfortable environment that is professional and quiet, yet also social.
Cove Founder Adam Segal says that he created cove with his own work habits in mind. “I’ve worked from home, an office, and in a bunch of coffee shops – and I was actually never quite good in any of them,” Segal says. “I sought a new kind of space, one that combined all the tools with a friendly feel. A place to be productive, but also to interact, chat and connect, with more flexibility and mobility than being tied to a single desk. The name Productive Space sums it up: a place with the right combination of tools, people and atmosphere for being productive in the neighborhood.”
Cove is free for first-time visitors; after that, members sign up for a monthly membership plan based on their needs. Member plans range from $24 a month for eight desk hours and one conference room hour – or the price of five lattes – to $124 a month for 50 desk hours with four conference room hours.
Through the cove Web site and mobile Web app, members can check availability in advance and even reserve space ahead of time for an individual desk, group desk or conference room – or just drop in as they wish.”
The Logan Circle space will be located at 1624 14th Street NW above Barcelona Wine Bar:
