Your Third Place Workspace?
Kate Yandoh on Culture
Where do you work when you're not in offices or at home - bookstores, coffee shops, hotel lobbies, or neighborhood hangouts? What are your third places, the ones with their own distinct feel, even if they happen to be part of a big chain?
We're looking for your picks, both for an upcoming article and as a resource to share with Worthwhile readers on the road, or just in search of a new place to work (or daydream, or simply hang out.)
I'll be standing by at email@example.com, and I'd love to hear about your favorite. Here's mine:
Joe's Coffee, 510 Flat Shoals Avenue, Atlanta, GA, 30316
Nutshell: Unofficial neighborhood headquarters with a homey, laid-back feel (giant couches!) and an eclectic clientele. Located in East Atlanta Village, an area The Washington Post described as 'Atlanta's best kept secret.'
Food: Of the sweet, pastry variety
Soundtrack: Jazz and 40s in the morning, 80s after lunch
Insider Tip: Try for the 'chairman of the board desk,' perched on a platform and complete with plants and a personal lamp.
