Where we've featured it
Brü in Wicker Park is a laid-back coffee shop that is not only a great spot to get some solo work done, but has a separate shared workspace, too. It’s basically the coffee house equivalent of a WeWork, but it doesn’t cost you anything to be here, and it can tide you over until you finally pull the trigger on an office space where you can actually have your mail delivered.
If Randolph Street is Restaurant Row, then this stretch of Milwaukee Ave. is the Coffee Canopy. Just north of Caffe Streets and The Wormhole, you’ll find Brü. Not only is it a great place to get some work done, but there’s a separate shared work space, too. It’s basically the coffee house equivalent of a WeWork, but free and with events like art classes and movie nights.
