We have been banging on about pubworking here on Shedworking since 2006 and even launched an entire website devoted to it (sadly no longer with us). So we were delighted to hear that The Bottle of Sauce - Cheltenham’s Pub of the Year for the second year on the trot - is launching a new co-working and hot desking space in August. After a £100,000 renovation project there is now a series of offices over two floors, with 46 desks available seither individually or grouped together in their own room. Naturally there is wifi, private meeting and function rooms, a secure entrance, communal kitchen, plus perks on food and drinks. There will also be regular tenant meetup and brainstorming sessions organised by the company behind the move, Dodo Pub Co. “We initially considered installing bedrooms," explains founding member of Dodo Pub Co., Leo Johnson, "particularly as The Bottle of Sauce is a former hotel. We got as far as designing the rooms before reviewing the way the High Street and town centres are changing. We clocked the way people are working is changing too with more smaller businesses than ever and the freelancing community growing. “We know we have a great space here and we wanted to maximise its potential. We’ve had Abercrombie & Kent with us for a year while their offices have been refurbished and now it’s time for us to open up our offices to the wider community. There’s no doubt that the way people use the town centre is changing especially with the crisis facing retailers so Dodo Works is about moving with the times and catering for what people want and need. “Being able to pop down to the pub for a bite to eat for lunch, meet clients for a working lunch or enjoy some downtime means work can definitely involve some play too. The pub is the perfect common space for relaxed and casual meetings or socials." For more information go to the Dodo Works site. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Tuesday posts are sponsored by Garden Spaces , suppliers of contemporary garden buildings, offices, gyms and studios, many of which do not require planning
