5 Alternative Coffices in Manila

Gone are the days of sitting at a dull office day in and day out. As paperless workers, we are no longer tied down to our desks.

You can grab your phone, tablet and/or laptop and do your work wherever you please. So to ride with the global trend of “coffice-ing” or working in a coffee-shop office, we’ve compiled a list of alternative coffices that don’t only serve coffee and a space to work, but more.

The John Barbers Groomers

Located within the lobby of the Somerset Millennium Hotel in Legaspi Village, Makati, The John Barbers Groomers is an airport lounge inspired barbershop. Here, you can work while getting a haircut, massage, manicure, facial, pedicure and even a custom suit made. Each barber chair comes with USB ports, sockets and speakers, paired with a mirror with a built-in personal LCD screen. If you need a quick break they also offer a Nap Room, Bathroom Suite and Shower Lounge. A sweet bonus is their complimentary "bean-to-cup" coffee blend.

McCafe BGC Arts Center

Situated within BGC, Taguig’s newly opened Maybank Performing Arts Center this McCafe is nothing like its other branches.
