Today’s ability to work remotely is a convenience that many of us enjoy. I know that I personally appreciate checking in with clients, listings and my website (like writing this blog) from my current locale. From hedge fund managers to graphic designers, the ability to work remotely is also life-changing, and has allowed many people I know to make the full-time move to Park City.
So, whether you are catching up while on vacation or just looking to get away from the home office to focus on your latest project, what are the best places to work in Park City? Here are my thoughts as of this writing, starting in-town and moving out to Kimball Junction.
Atticus: Best on Main
Widely known as the family-run coffee and tea house established almost 10 years ago, Atticus is also a favorite for remote workers. This shop is many things to many people, including a book store, so the seating is somewhat limited. This would be a great spot for a bagel and an hour or two of work on your laptop.
Ritual Chocolate & Coffee: Best in Prospector
Obviously known for its chocolate, this is also a fine place to set up shop for a couple of hours while you tap into work. It’s close to old town but with more parking, and the coffee is spectacular. A small assortment of baked goods is available, but no substantial food is served (unless you consider chocolate to be a meal).
The Library: Quiet Concentration
The old town library is a stellar place to settle in and work for a number of reasons. It’s quiet. There’s an al fresco coffee shop downstairs. And you can reserve private rooms for even more concentration or group work. This is a great option, especially if you don’t require any phone time.
Hugo Coffee: Large Space, Natural Light
Located in the Park City Visitor’s Information center, this is a large open space with excellent natural light and a great PC feel. This would be a great choice for a work meeting or some heads-down work, if you don’t mind some louder acoustics.
Park City Roasters: A Classic Favorite
This is arguably the most widely known coffee shop in Park City, and with a recent expansion into the old GNC space, there’s now even more seating. Scones, paninis and smoothies are served up fresh alongside coffee and many friendly faces.
Assemble: Commit to Co-Working
Assemble has co-working and full office memberships, and gives you the benefits of an office without the management. Amenities include a conference room, flat screen TVs, dedicated internet, work stations and private office use, printers and copy machines, a stocked kitchen and more.
The Office: More Flexible Co-Working
If you need a more flexible option for co-working, The Office may be a fit. Day passes can be purchased by non-members for $15 per day. Prices and amenities go up from there. They even offer virtual office services which could be great for out-of-towners.
Townshend’s: Work and Sip
We have written about this charming teahouse before, and it has quickly become a locals’ favorite. You might find it to be just the ideal place for remote work, as it’s quiet during business hours, has plenty of seating, parking, food and drink options.
