This month’s issue of Hawaii Business magazine features a story on coffices, what mobile entrepreneurs are calling places where people can work, access Wi-Fi and drink coffee. Here’s some feedback we got for other places to coffice.
Appraiser Stephany Sofos sent her feedback on Twitter:
Jennifer Pang, president of PR firm Pang Communications, likes The Plaza Club. (It is one of her clients, but she’s also a member.) Located on the 20th and 21st floor of Pioneer Plaza in downtown Honolulu, it features meeting space with AV equipment, free Wi-Fi and a full bar and restaurant. Pang says it’s a great location because she can meet many of her clients, who are in the business district. Also, as I mentioned in a story last September, it’s a nice place to impress clients. The club finished a $1.8 million renovation about a year ago. Prices vary for membership.
About once a month during deadline, our writer Dennis Hollier w0rks out of his other office at Starbucks. Although there’s one on the ground floor of our building at Cades Schutte on Bishop St., he instead goes to the Starbucks a block down to the Bank of Hawaii building on Merchant and Bishop St. He prefers this location because of the availability of seats, free Wi-Fi and the big work table where he can spread his papers and laptop. Coffee refills are also a steal at $0.52 for any size.
We also caught some flack.
