Nowadays, the tradition of having a fixed office space for businesses is slowly disappearing, especially for startups and SMEs with a limited number of employees. Instead, more and more work clubs and co-working spaces are appearing, particularly in Hong Kong.
What Makes a Work Club?
Say you and your friends have a brilliant idea, creative project, or manuscript for the next best seller, but you have nowhere to work. Work clubs and co-working spaces can solve this problem. Work clubs and co-working spaces are large offices shared by individuals from different backgrounds with the same goal: starting or growing their businesses. Usually, work clubs are furnished with numerous tables, chairs and laid back furniture and provide F&B services such as coffee bar and liquor bar for members. Work clubs can also act as a conference venue for startups to pitch their ideas to investors and offer knowledge enhancement programs such as seminars on industry related topics.
Who Goes to a Work Club?
There are certain groups of individuals that you can find at work clubs and co-working spaces. Work clubs are popular amongst entrepreneurs and startups, with some specifically designed for unique fields, such as coding, design, or financial tech. There are also a large number of entrepreneurs from overseas who stop by work clubs around the world for short periods of time during their travels.

Work clubs are more than just a space where you bring your laptop; it’s where individuals and businesses share ideas and bring inspiration to their peers. Most work clubs in Hong Kong host various events including idea pitching, sharing sessions, seminars, and more. Unlike a traditional office, work clubs provide a platform for entrepreneurs to communicate and share their experiences. Thus, a work club is more of a community than an office.
How do I join a Work Club?
Membership at most work clubs can be obtained through a weekly, monthly or yearly subscription. Eaton Club Hong Kong offers monthly, semi-annual, or yearly subscriptions while integrating work-life elements such as the option for subscribers to hold events, dine at the onsite restaurant, or have an after-work cocktail at our bar.
