“Washington, D.C.” and “government” feel synonymous in the minds of most Americans, for obvious reasons. And yes, if you head to a brunch hangout or a cocktail mixer in D.C., you’re bound to encounter plenty of lobbyists, news journalists, and Capitol Hill staffers. But politics aren’t the only game in town; largely due to the constant government-related projects happening in D.C., the nation’s capital hosts an enormous white-collar population, from attorneys to financial advisors to consultants. D.C. is also a burgeoning hotspot for hospitality, with new hotels, restaurants, and networking venues opening on a regular basis. Finally, the D.C. area remains a major center for higher education, with faculty and students from Georgetown University, Johns Hopkins University, Howard University, and George Washington University (among others) seeking spaces to pursue their academic goals. 

For all of these reasons, coworking in D.C. recently emerged as a vibrant trend, with dozens of dedicated spaces opening to accommodate the flood of remote employees, freelancers, and part-time office workers. We found 16 of the best examples throughout the D.C. metropolitan area, including several spaces specifically oriented toward women.
