With so many creatives and concepts coming out of their shells in Kuwait, the demand to get work done in a home away from home is only increasing. While it’s always fun to go to a coffee house to tap away some ideas over a steaming latte, ambiance is everything, and the creative juices can flow more freely when you’re able to collaborate and brainstorm with like-minded individuals. We’ve rounded up a few options for you to look into, so that you can gather your birdseed of ideas and stay motivated when creating.
