It began in a coffee shop in Hampstead that Andrian used to run, serving food and coffee to customers; customers like Ryan who regularly worked nomadically from his laptop. Over time they became the best of buds but eventually Andrian's place closed down.


After 8 years of being a freelancer, Ryan was well versed in using coffee shops as work spaces. So, they put their talents together to create a cafe work-space specifically for non-office workers.

Starting with very little, they used the skills and resources they had, and with Ryan's abilities in videography and Andrian's Moldavian charm they recorded a video for their kickstarter campaign. Luckily, people loved the idea, loved the video and loved Ryan and Andrian, and everything subsequently fell into place. They launched The Workers' Cafe as a pop-up idea in Hackney, June 2016.


Only 3 weeks into opening, two brothers Mike and Dave showed up at The Workers' Cafe. A few months earlier Mike had undergone life changing spinal surgery and had found being bed-bound for months during recovery quite difficult. To help get Mike out of his funk, Dave encouraged Mike to be more mobile by suggesting they start up a business of their own. A co-working business to be exact.


Mike and Dave got chatting to Ryan and Andrian about their experience in the co-working industry, but instead of parting ways, they all decided it'd be way more fun to work together. Before long they had opened another co-working cafe in Dalston, so that when the pop-up term in Hackney was over they all had a permanent place to reside. Ryan now helps out from his new home in Canada, but you can find Andrian, Mike and Dave in The Workers' Cafe in Dalston!
