This Hooters Is Trying to Become Tokyo's Next Coworking Space
It hopes to inspire “innovative ideas.”
Hooters is not exactly known as a place where serious business is done. But that might be about to change.
The restaurant is partnering with Spacee, a Japanese space rental app, to make more of its free space during off-peak times.
And Spacee believes the arrangement is mutually beneficial for creative workers. In a press release, the app said that it believes working in an unconventional space encourages “new discoveries” and “innovative ideas.” It also probably helps that those who book a seat at the Hooters coworking space get a discount on drinks — which are, of course, served by Hooters’ famously attired waitresses.
Spacee members pay 50 yen (about $0.47) per half hour at the coworking space. The cost includes desk space and internet access. Those interested must register for a spot via the app ahead of time.
The service is free for students — because nothing says “I’m studying for finals” like booking a table at a Tokyo Hooters.
