A piece of Bristol’s industrial heritage, the Cigar Factory is an original red brick building and home to many Bristol creatives.

Cigar Factory is a welcoming space with flexible and fixed co-working desks, private studios and a large communal kitchen and cosy community space. With windows on three sides of the building, natural light pours into the space highlighting the original features and thoughtful interiors.

There are nooks and crannies for quiet contemplation alongside shared meeting rooms for gatherings and intimate events.

What does a typical membership at Cigar Factory look like?


We want you to focus on what you do best – producing outstanding work. We don’t want to distract or surprise
you with hidden fees for meeting room hire or coffee.

So, the price you pay per month covers these things
and so much more.
