When we first visit CoWrks on a very wet July day, we find on their second floor, huddled together, Fort’s pavement booksellers who’ve been given refuge from the rain and a beautiful space to hold a 3-day pop up bookshop.
This first impression, in many ways, defines an office sharing experience at CoWrks – creative, kind and efficient. Occupying two floors at the conveniently located Birla Centurion tower at Worli, CoWrks offers spacious private offices with views of crumbling mills and plenty of natural light; compelling hot desks; gorgeous conference rooms (seriously, check out their Bonsai Room!); a great staff; and fun shared spaces and community lounges populated by bean bags, superhero wallpaper, a foosball table, pool table and a giant hand installation a la The Addams Family.
So of course, we implore you to work here – then we’d be neighbours! – and you’ll see how infectious their high energy space can be, not to mention all the other members that you’d be networking with. See you at the rose water cooler. Seriously, they have fruit and flower infused water that changes everyday.
But if you’d rather dip your feet in and wade into the pool slowly, here’s a list of ways in which you can explore CoWrks, whether you are a member or not. Psst: pre-booking on their upcoming Powai outpost is now open. Details here.

Host An Event Here: Spread over 60,000 square feet with an event space of 5000 sqft and populated by sharp men and women from across different fields, CoWrks is the ideal location to host your next event, from conferences and panel talks to pop up shops and music performances.

Plan Your Next Shoot Here: If we haven’t made it clear already, CoWrks is the photogenic friend you want in all your Instagram posts. It makes sense then, if you are a photographer/advertising agency/stylist/designer, to plan your next photo or video shoot here. Their all glass panes afford views of beautifully decaying mills; and their community areas can easily mimic living rooms and office spaces.
