Discussions » 🍹 Wild lounge experiment closes (🔗 Visit source)
David Barrett from Expensify shares some notes behind their now shuttered "wild experiment" of opening a working + socializing lounge for their employees (and the public) in downtown San Francisco's financial district to see if it would bring more workers back to the office voluntarily.

They did learn a lot, especially how hard it is to run a coworking space. I think the next logical step is partnering with coworking spaces instead. Right?
