We have access to some of the best technology the world can offer, literally in the palm of our hands. They say, we couldn’t be more connected or clued-in even if we tried. While it’s true that information is practically a click away thanks to smartphones and the Internet, there is somewhere a disconnect; things are, shall we say without the fear of being labelled a fossil, impersonal. You’d rather chat on Whatsapp instead of actually shouting out to someone Whats Up
This is where Social in Mumbai (Colaba and Todi Mill), a space that merges work and play steps in, in an attempt to take things offline. Here are five reasons why you should utilise this Mumbai hotspot.
1. Escape from the cubicle
J.K Rowling is said to have written the early Potter books over cake and coffee in the backroom of the now-famous The Elephant House café, overlooking the Edinburgh Castle, UK. At times, an office cubicle or your workstation at home can be a little stifling to even the most creative of us. Head to Social to join community of creative collaborators. .
2. An office-space just at Rs 5,000/- per month
If you’re an entrepreneur-in-the-making or a freelancer who needs to hold meetings, you could apply for a spot for just five thousand rupees a month. It’s a steal considering the going rental rates in Mumbai even if it’s a hole in the wall. This will give you, your own work space on weekdays between 9 am to 6 pm. Your money could also get you a credit of the said sum for food and drinks. After all, there’s nothing that fuels inspiration like caffeine! Booking a spot means you will have access to a fully-equipped conference room (on request), personal locker, a post office box (if you want things to be mailed to their address) and high-speed Internet. If you join them at Social Works, you will get to use their space not only in Mumbai, but in Bengaluru and Delhi as well. Make sure to book your spot in advance, as the space is extremely limited! And did I mention about the 3D printer which is installed?
3. Get connected, offline
Social calls out a specific breed of people—freethinkers, freelancers, artists, innovators, writers, daydreamers and the likes. This makes it a hub of creativity, a place where you can meet and network with like-minded people. We believe that the information and ideas exchanged between real people in real time, can be more inspiring and exciting than what a search engine can throw up. Don’t you agree?
4. It’s playtime
Social invariably has a PlayStation 4 lying around somewhere, just in case you want to take a quick break. And, of course the boardroom or your workspace comes with a bar attached!
5. After hours
A little after 6 pm,its tme for play with music, world's street food with generous helpings and a unique bar menu to re-imagine the joy of drinking . This ensures that your working hours don’t exceed a certain amount of time. Social is ideal for sundowners or treating your clients to a drink or two. Even if your food and drinks credit is all used up, you will still get pretty amazing discounts.
