In a city where time is money, the Freehand New York has created a working environment for the modern traveler/hustler. Located in the Flatiron district of Manhattan, this is a hotspot for those passing through town while also servicing local creatives looking for refuge in a place that is co-wor friendly. With a total of five bars & restaurants, there are ample choices for a business meeting, a bite between calls or a happy hour drink. Just passing through town? There are several room configurations that cater to any budget so you can centralize all your business and pleasure needs in one place. If New York City is your home, you can make the most out of all the available amenities Freehand New York has to offer any day of the week. Here, a few of our favorite spots.
Head downstairs to Simon & The Whale for a morning meeting, or check your emails over eggs, toast and coffee. With wrap-around windows framing the outside hustle and a gorgeous bar to give you an elevated perspective, this warm space is the perfect place to start your day.
If you are looking for a space to get some work done but can’t afford the price of a sleek co-working space, head to the second floor to the Gallery and Studio. The Gallery offers a cool, but casual space where you can escape the outside noise and pop your laptop out between greenery which will have you forgetting you are in the middle of a concrete jungle. Bites and drinks are available to fuel your brain so you’ll never have to leave the cozy confines of the plush couch pillows.
The Gallery opens up to the Studio, a beautiful open space with a full menu that changes throughout the day. Grab a pastry by Zoe Kanan in the morning or indulge in a warm meal at night by famed chef Matt Griffin. During the day you’ll find people engaged in their work, or chatting over ideas with others. Bring your work or leave it at home, the Gallery is the perfect space for every kind of occasion. Bring the romance for a late-night drink, or head to the rooftop to enjoy the view at the Broken Shaker. Once you call it a day and have had enough of your inbox, the rooftop oasis is the perfect last stop. Whatever hour of the day it is, Freehand has every stop you’ll need and more to make your hustle worth it.
