BRUM’S QUIRKIEST PLACES TO WORK REMOTELY

 

The pandemic has transformed the way we work forever; remote working is no longer a trend but the rule. With this new found flexibility comes a growing demand to ditch the claustrophobic high street cafes and overpriced city ‘hubs’ and opt for more interesting and inspiring places to work. Featuring everything from private booths in Birmingham’s best bars; to the city’s stadiums with pitch-side views; Work From Here has pulled together a list of the quirkiest places in Brum to hammer out some good ‘ol caffeine-fuelled work in a comfortable setting with kind staff, delicious beverages and brisk WiFi.

 

Aston Hall

One of Birmingham’s most iconic buildings, this magnificent Grade I listed 17th century mansion house delivers a beautiful oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. Giving us all those Downton Abbey vibes, it’d be hard to not be inspired as workers can furiously type away amongst some of the country’s best architectural and historical delights. Aston Hall offers remote workers an experience, aiming to provoke curiosity and drive creativity; it really is a jewel in Birmingham’s crown.

 

The Birmingham Assay Office

Where all the Jewellery Quarter’s namesake wares pass through to be analysed, Birmingham Assay office is welcoming workers to set up office within its walls.  Founded by an Act of Parliament in 1773, Birmingham is now the one of the busiest Assay Offices in the world and positioned at the doorway to the illustrious JQ. Enclosed by treasures and gems, the Assay Office is the perfect spot to motivate and inspire.

 

Birmingham City Football Club

For the ‘Blue Noses’ looking to score an impressive workspace, the executive box overlooking Birmingham City’s St Andrew’s Trillion Trophy Stadium could be just the ticket. Following the football fever that swept the nation last month, could there be a better time to swap the boardroom for the box?

 

Jojo Lounge

Set in the historic Solicitor’s Law Stationery Society’s office, Jojo lounge has transformed into a haven for the design conscious city dwellers. Set in the heart of the business district, you can enjoy a sophisticated work setting surrounded by remarkable maps of the city that line the venue’s walls. Capturing the lounge bar culture of NYC, Jojo Lounge combines retro style with all the trappings of a modern, personal and professional workplace. Lap up the privacy of a luxury booth, perch and chat at the bar or slump on the sofa with your laptop, this place is perfect for the style savvy squad. 

 

Loki

Nestled in the heart of the city’s thriving independent retail hub Great Western Arcade, Loki offers a tranquil bolthole veiled by the buzz of Birmingham’s roaring shopping District. The hybrid concept lists a repertoire of over 100 different bottles available to purchase alongside their famous self-service tasting machines; putting an interesting twist on delivering expertly curated wine without breaking the bank or committing to the entire bottle. Surrounded by walls lined with wines of the world, Loki is the ideal location for those workers seeking a safe sanctuary from the chaos city life brings with it.
