The proliferation of coworking spaces in Jakarta has inspired countless charming designs and features in an office space. These days it's getting harder to differentiate the workplace and home, considering all the things that you normally find in your living room can also be found in the common area of your coworking space, for instance, pool table, ping-pong table, and your favorite console, it's no surprise that some people linger in the office longer than you'd expect. Echoing my narrative above, is a friend of mine that recently updated her status on Facebook - "The problem with your office being too comfy, is that you find yourself firmly entrenched in it at 8 p.m. which becomes 10 p.m. which then becomes 12 a.m. and you realize several colleagues are also still here"
As if 9-5 isn't enough, here are 7 totally awesome office spaces in Jakarta that allows 24/7 hour access in Jakarta so you can burn the midnight oil or just chill out with your colleagues after work hours.
Insider tip: While you have building and space access, the centralized air-con is usually turned-off after office hours so bring in a portable air conditioner to your office if you want to stay cool!
