Looking for the ideal working form
When I moved to Berlin, my idea of the ideal work-form looked like this: Usually in the home office, because I can concentrate on the best. In nice weather and smaller works, however, I wanted to look for some pretty coffee.
Apart from the fact that it soon turned out that it would be best to work on a large screen without noise and sunlight, this often fails at the appropriate location:
Not everywhere is Wi-Fi
Not every pub has Wi-Fi - not even in Berlin. And not in every pub that has Wi-Fi, there is a free seat. The search for such a can sometimes be very time consuming.
The place of work of Sascha Lobo is the St. Oberholz at Rosenthaler Platz. The upper floor is similar to a coworking space, but with musical background and a constant coming and going.
The most famous pub workplace in Berlin
Concentrated work is not to think here, also personally the ambience is a bit too cold and too hip. I am surprised that here are indeed countless young people on their laptops bulls - the name makes it seem.
However, the upper wood offers an advantage: self-service is the rule. If you want something, go get it and is not constantly interrupted by annoying questions, whether one still wants something at work. If you want nothing, you can sit down!
Coffee-house worker as a problem for gastronomy operation?
This sounds like a matter of course, but it is not. There are restaurants that consider coffee-house workers as a problem. For example, if you write a text longer, you may forget to use it, but still occupy a seat.
While the marketing influence of the coffee house workers has been clearly recognized in the upper wood, leaving them alone, some companies seem to be disturbed by the fact that they are immediately removing unwelcome coffee house workers:
"Write your sh ... text somewhere else!"
This happened to me some time ago in this restaurant, where I say "Write your Sch ... texts somewhere else." Although the operator has apologized to me afterwards, but the employee showed little insight. How about a sign: "Coffee-House-Worker" unwanted.
Incidentally, things are also different: The Birojnica in Riga has made a virtue out of necessity and transformed an existing café, in which people have already worked, into a very reasonably priced coworking space - a model that benefits everyone involved.
