Reasons to start coworking at Ideas Cartel +

Sign up and get a ton of perks at this coworking spot

Last updated: Tuesday, 9 May 2023

This coworking space is closed.

Ideas Cartel has defined itself as a premium coworking work-play-and-stay hub for businesses, entrepreneurs and remote workers. Discover more about Ideas Cartel’s coworking spaces, as well as boardrooms and meeting rooms across the Cape. 


Situated in the trendy De Waterkant area, Ideas Cartel + is a coworking space perfect for freelancers, company owners and business travellers. A generator, pretty courtyard seating and a café for business lunches or after-work drinks are just some of the perks.

This space is for the bold and innovative. On the exposed brick walls, you’ll find Ben Franklin’s portrait muted with brushstrokes or an old-school map graffitied with hot-pink “Bitch please…” The decor embraces the modern and cheekily eschews the past, making it an inspiring, creative environment. 

Naturally, the space has a focused buzz. It’s the ideal working location for remote workers, freelancers and those who want to leave distractions behind. 

Be inspired by the quirky decor. Image: Ideas Cartel +


You can either buy a fixed desk (R3 500 per month, excluding vat) or a coworking unlimited membership (R2 000 per month, excluding vat). 

The fixed desk will be exclusively yours and you can decorate it as you wish - bring a comfy pillow or put up a framed picture. A coworking unlimited membership will give you access to the general space and facilities, and you won’t have a fixed desk. You can sit under the bougainvillea trees in the courtyard or next to the big windows and watch the bustling street outside. 

There are month-to-month or long-term memberships. There’s a benefit to booking a long-term membership in February: You’ll get a free coffee every day for the rest of the month. That’s a big saving!

It’s located on Prestwich St, close to the bustling Cape Quarter. Image: Ideas Cartel +

You can also book boardrooms, which is great for freelancers, online teams or teams that just want a break from the office. 

Six-seater and 20-seater boardrooms are available, and can be booked by the hour, half day or full day. Bonus: Book a boardroom in March and you’ll receive a free day pass to the coworking space.

Ideas Cartel + offers a stylish, focused space to work. Ideas Image: Ideas Cartel +


Ideas Cartel + is loadshedding-proof: The wifi and electricity stays on all day long. There’s also a pretty courtyard surrounded by bougainvillea, which makes for scenic work surroundings or a nice spot for a business lunch. 

Order coffee and breakfast from the café or stay for lunch and after-work drinks (the café stays open until 7pm from Thursday to Saturday). If you’re a member you can access the gym, too.

With pink, purple and yellow bougainvillea and fairy lights, this urban courtyard is an idyllic working spot. Image: Ideas Cartel + 


Ideas Cartel + is open: Coworking hours: Monday - Friday, 7am to 5pm. Café hours: Monday - Wednesday, 7am to 4pm; Thursday to Saturday 7am to 7pm; Sunday 7am to 11am.
Find it: 74 Prestwich St | The Foundry Courtyard | Green Point
