District Hall isn’t just an event space available for rent, it’s also a coworking space which is free for anyone to use. They have a coffee cafe, free wifi, power tables, dedicated desks, and more.

However, given there is no cost associated with working out of District Hall; it is an ideal spot for entrepreneurs, small businesses, and startups.
LearnLaunch is different from the other coworking spaces on our list, and this is because it’s primarily aimed at both technology and education based businesses.
