What is Creative Coworking?
With locations in Evanston, Edgewater, and West Town, Creative Coworking is a network of members-only workspaces, small event venues, and business incubators for creative professionals, startups, entrepreneurs, and everyone in between. Here, you will find quiet, comfortable workspaces with a sense of community. From private offices and conference rooms to collaboration zones and public spaces, all members of Creative Coworking can find a place that best suits their work mode.
The Evanston location doubles as a fully-operating art gallery with 40+ Chicagoland artists on display. We love to work with a diverse group of artists who participate in the vibrant community we’ve built over the last 10 years. The Edgewater location doubles as private event venue, housed in a restored mansion right off Lake Michigan.
The West Town office offers personalized private offices, reserved desks in a shared space, and conference rooms available for hourly usage. With each location, we aim to provide a professional environment that best suits your work style and your business needs. Our spaces foster creativity and productivity in a calm, comfortable environment. Once you're a member, you're part of our community.
