If you're planning a workation or remote work trip to Lisbon, here are ten of the city’s best coworking spaces.
1. Impact Hub
Since 2016, Impact Hub in Lisbon has grown from humble beginnings to become one of the city’s top coworking spaces. Its eclectic workspace blends different aesthetics to create a unique space with a funky, creative atmosphere.
Impact Hub features several different types of workstations, so you can cozy up on a couch with your laptop or spread out at a table with plenty of room to work. With different membership options, this place offers flexibility for different needs.
How to find it:
Travessa Das Pedras Negras on the alley behind Largo Madalena. Get to it up from Travessa do Almada. Sign on the outside door.
2. Second Home Lisboa
Located above the famous Mercado Da Ribeira (which includes the Time Out Market Lisbon), Second Home Lisboa is a lively coworking space teeming with inspiration.
This is a quieter neighborhood beside the ocean, with a beautiful park nearby. The Market downstairs offers plenty of lunchtime options and cuisines.
London and Los Angeles are other locations for this international coworking space brand.
With professionals from virtually every industry under the same roof — from arts and education to marketing and tech — there are countless opportunities for networking and collaborating at Second Home Lisboa, especially with the balance of quiet environments upstairs and social possibilities downstairs in the market and in the park.
The main workspace is a beautiful, vibrant area with lots of green plants, vaulted ceilings, lots of natural light, air conditioning, and separate pods for group work.
How to get here:
Head to the far end of the Time Out Market across from the Cais Do Sodré station, from which you can head upstairs to the Second Home entrance.
Depending on which entrance you come into the Mercado from, you may have to walk to the other end of the market to find the stairs up to the space.
3. LACS Conde d’Óbidos
LACS Conde d’Óbidos is bursting with artistic flair and opportunity. Calming artwork and color schemes are utilized throughout the space to create a relaxed atmosphere where thoughts are free to flow.
The rustic industrial lobby that welcomes you to the space, which is in a unique 'railyard' neighborhood on the ocean-facing side of the highway on the Santo Pier.
This space focuses on artists and creators and has the most artistic flair, feel, community and décor of all the coworking spaces in Lisbon.

Avila Spaces are the closest spaces to traditional early 21st-century "professional offices" rather than a Silicon Valley-style "hip coworking space".

Situated in one of Lisbon's most affluent areas, Parque das Nações, Idea Spaces provides freelancers, entrepreneurs, and startups of all sizes with the professional support they require. And thanks to its location, you can take in scenic river views while you work.
Idea Spaces has two other locations in Lisbon, including one in a literal palace. Membership to one location grants you access to all three, so you can work where you want and quickly get to work no matter what part of Lisbon you find yourself in.
At NOW_BEATO, their No Office Work philosophy permeates every inch of the building. The area feels more like a gathering place or lounge than an office, but for many people, this makes it easier to relax, find inspiration, and focus on a task.
The three-story warehouse building has an open-concept, exposed interior that allows creativity to flow freely.
The coworking space at WorkHub provides remote workers and startups with professional office solutions. All of its workspaces come fully furnished with spacious desks and ergonomic seating options.
Its all-inclusive pricing includes high-speed internet access, timely cleaning services, security, and mail services.
WorkHub also has private offices that can fit larger teams. These offices run along the interior walls with hotdesking in a largely open-plan environment on the ground floor. Helpful for small to medium teams that are growing and may want more privacy than the hotdesking space can provide them.
