Formerly in combination with Barclays as Barclays Rise, Central Working Deansgate is still going strong alone. Situated in a great location and with access to some of the strongest and most tasty coffee around it remains a stalwart of Manchester's co-working scene.

“Central Working’s Grade II listed Manchester club lies a stone’s throw from the city centre. We have a state of the art 150 capacity lecture theatre and meeting room suite on-site, while downstairs our partners at Grindsmiths Coffee offer excellent hot drinks and treats. In contrast to that bustling atmosphere is the calm, airy and open space upstairs, with floor to ceiling windows and balconies overlooking a beautiful square. The period building houses a bohemian space with a chatty and collaborative attitude. The diverse mix of companies and members all help each other out, breeding positivity and great work days.”
