Our new favorite spot to work in Williamsburg is Freehold Brooklyn. It’s definitely the perfect place to simultaneously meet, work, play. We love Freehold!
In other words: meet interesting people, work is welcome with free wifi and play during the day or after work hours, when they start bringing the music’s volume up!
The space is literally amazing, and from the outside you’d never imagine it! It’s a mixture of coffeeshop, bar, restaurant with a great courtyard.
It has natural light all over the place, which is definitely one of the highlights here. There is nothing better that seeing the light of day during a fun lunch, and specially during your work hours!
The menu is very diverse, ranging from bagels & pastries, to breakfast specials, salads, snacks, sandwiches and desserts. I’m vegetarian and usually eat their salads (love the Farro Salad), or the sandwiches. One of the waitresses is also vegetarian and knows me, so they are also good and trying to improvise a sandwich for you! We love it!
There are numerous drink options too like cocktails, house classics, shooters, beer, wine, liquor, and obviously tea and different types of coffee! Ah! And for happy hour, drinks are 50% off!
It’s opened for everyone to just walk in, sit, work, have fun, meet young, interesting people, curious minds and have great food.
Wifi is free and you have energy plugs all around, so it’s perfect for people that come in and work. It’s certainly a freelance friendly place!
Oh, and the “play” happens after work hours. The place gets quite full, loud music and great people! No tourists! At night hours, things really get exciting, music is loud, lights are dimmed and people are dancing and having so much fun!
I’m sure you will have a great time there, and maybe, even bump into me! Come say “Hi” and Meet, Work, Play at Freehold.

You can go to Little Choc Apothecary for a to-die-for vegan crepe (the best one in town) and on your free time, roam around the neighborhood exploring these vintage stores that sell brands like Missoni, Chloé, Oscar de la Renta and Stella McCartney!
