"For over a decade, we've traveled overseas as a team for a month a year. And wherever we go, we always seek out the same ideal work environment: a hip cafe with great coffee, strong cocktails, and cool strangers," says David Barrett, founder and CEO of Expensify. "But coming back to our office was always such a buzzkill… so we decided to do something about it. We renovated it to an unreasonably nice degree and added a high-end Tokyo-style espresso/cocktail bar, on the 16th floor of the Financial District. And now we're sharing it with our customers, to work alongside us, as we try to Live Rich, Have Fun, and Save the World. You've gotta work somewhere, you might as well do it someplace awesome."
The Expensify Lounge includes exclusive perks such as lightning-fast wifi, private meeting rooms, snacks, and a full selection of craft coffee, tea, and high-end specialty cocktails. The entire experience -- from ordering a drink to recommending a hotel or booking a flight -- is handled through Expensify’s in-house, chat-based Concierge service.
Here’s what some Expensify members have to say about the lounge:
“Techstars has thoroughly enjoyed partnering with Expensify to host events for our portfolio companies and community,” says Kevin Liu, Head of Investments & Portfolio Capital at Techstars. “We've been able to bring together hundreds of portfolio founders, mentors, and investors at Expensify’s lounge and the feedback across the board has been fantastic. More recently, we used the lounge as our home base for Japanese founders from our Techstars and JETRO Founder Catalyst program.”
“I love working out of the Expensify Lounge in San Francisco,” says Morgan Berman, Vice President of Partnerships at Techstars. “It’s central and convenient and the team is super helpful. It’s a great place to hold meetings or a quick stop-by in between meetings in the city.”
The lounge is located at 88 Kearny Street in downtown San Francisco and features sweeping views of the city from an array of relaxing vantage points. In addition to normal daily operations, the lounge will host speakers’ series, concerts, and other exclusive member events.
