“IS THE TEA AND COFFEE FREE…?”
And can I download porn? We find out how willing other places are to tarnish their web history
WeWork (London and Manchester) Q: “Is the wi-fi strong enough to download porn if it’s relevant for my work?” A: “Sure, we can set you up on your own dedicated internet.” WHAT ELSE YOU GET: For around £200 per month, you’ll get a hot desk and unlimited coffee, tea, fruit juice and beer – although drinking it before 11am is frowned upon.
Ace Hotel (east London) Q: “How many glasses of tapwater can I ask for before you get annoyed?” A: “We provide free water, but we do prefer you to buy drinks. I’m just going to get my colleague to help you.” *Line goes dead* WHAT ELSE YOU GET: The hipster venue is open 24/7, so whenever creativity hits, they’re there, with all the booths and plug sockets your heart could desire.
The Hoxton Hotel (London) Q: “How likely is it that I’ll encounter space invaders?” A: “Er… our chairs are spaced out.” WHAT ELSE YOU GET: At the Shoreditch branch, you can hire rooms with unlimited access to drinks and goodies in the Pantry Kitchen.
