If you like structure you will feel comfortable here. The Cocoquadrat is Vienna’s first cowork-café and offers working spaces on two levels. The atmosphere reminds of the young start-up scene with the latest technologies and enough room for creative brainstorming.

One could say it is the classic among the learning cafés in Vienna. There are walls full of books, which is why you immediately get into a study-mood. For studying, you should come here during the day because it can get very loud in the evenings when students meethere for hanging out. In the top part, there are large tables, which are ideal for group work. After an effective learning session, you should reward yourself with a break and maybe a good drink. Oh, and another really cool thing: if you like the furniture, you can buy it and take it at home on the spot.
