What is coworking?
Everyday, we're buzzing with Hubbers coworking out of our space at Somerset Road. Coworking space is what makes up most of The Hub Singapore!
What is coworking you ask? Here's a quick video showing what makes it different from working at home or in an office.
Not just a Coworking Space... Hold events at The Hub Singapore!
We're a modular space to fit talks, unconferences, social mixers, workshops, story slams, or even film screenings... Events with a social, environmental, cultural, or entrepreneurial purpose.
Hubbers love that we are a 2 minute stroll from Somerset MRT-- and your audiences will too! We are highly recognizable as the red building with the iconic Red Bus parked outside.
Our Ground Floor is available to members as an event space on weekday evenings and weekends. Casual yet energetic, our space has played host to 350+ events across 2 years.

Tips for event organizers
Our layout is modular and flexible; move chairs & tables around as you like. The rule of thumb: simply return the space to its original condition after use.
We provide training for space optimization and sound equipment (15 min session), and recommend it as long as your event uses the sound system or expects between 30 to 100 people. Make a date with the team (Mon - Fri: 9.00AM to 5.00PM) at least a week before your event. Please note that the Hub team is not around on weekends. If your event is on a Saturday or Sunday, it's especially important to meet us for equipment training. Make sure you have enough helpers on your team, so that both setup and the event run as you desire. We recommend that you arrive an hour before your event. Please recognise us (via logos, credit, Facebook tagging, etc.) as your venue supporter on all promotional material. It will make locating us even easier for your guests. We'll send you a convenient little blurb, directions, and our logo.
