While we don’t generally cover geographically-limited news here at DDNet (given that we have an international readership, and stuff happening in Sydney doesn’t mean much to our friends in New York), a press release dropped in my inbox this week for something I couldn’t overlook, because it’s just so neat: Boss Coffee is launching a limited time hub space for work and play with a very Japanese theme.
It’s called Tokyo House, and will run from February 17 to March 4. It’s a work and entertainment space located in the heart of Surry Hills, so very easy to get to, and over the next couple of weeks will play host to all kinds of events and experiences.
During the day it is a co-working space, offering charging stations and fast WiFi, along with unlimited Boss coffee to drink. You can book a space for $10 for 1.5 hours, or you can try your luck and see if there’s some walk-in space on the day.
It’s in the evenings that things get really interesting, however, because the space will transform into an event location for DJ beats, Japanese food, cocktails, and art. There’s some big names heading up events too, ranging from manga artist, Queenie Chan, to fashion icon, Akira Isogawa, and cocktail artist, Taka Shino.
All these events can be booked on the website here. It’s a pity that it won’t be a permanent space (there are not enough cheap working spaces in Sydney that actually have power points), but still, it looks like it’ll be a fun and low-cost way to fill in some time over the next couple of weeks. All those evening activities are just $25 and come with cocktails and food pairings – cheap!
