Blog | Lifestyle | Birmingham’s Quirkiest Places To Work Remotely

Are you #WFH? Bored of your four walls, bedroom or dining table working, and looking for somewhere else to work for a few hours, or all day? Or maybe you are organising a team meeting and don’t want to pay sky-high meeting room hire prices? Then check out Work From Here, a brand new service in Birmingham matching home workers with workspaces in super-cool and inspiring venues nearby. From quirky cafes, funky wine bars to luxurious hotels, you can buy a workspace package including all the caffeine-fuelled beverages and tasty treats you need for a productive working day. Check out Work From Here’s city centre venues:

Loki Wine

Nestled in the heart of the city’s thriving independent retail hub Great Western Arcade, Loki offers a tranquil bolthole veiled by the buzz of Birmingham’s roaring shopping District. The hybrid concept lists a repertoire of over 100 different bottles available to purchase alongside their famous self-service tasting machines; putting an interesting twist on delivering expertly curated wine without breaking the bank or committing to the entire bottle. Surrounded by walls lined with wines of the world, Loki is the ideal location for those workers seeking a safe sanctuary from the chaos city life brings with it. 

Prices for a space start at just £5.

The Birmingham Assay Office 

Where all the Jewellery Quarter’s namesake wares pass through to be analysed, Birmingham Assay office is welcoming workers to set up office within its walls.  Founded by an Act of Parliament in 1773, Birmingham is now the one of the busiest Assay Offices in the world and positioned at the doorway to the illustrious JQ.
