The name Rough Draft ties back to the way we think about creative work, that nothing is ever final, but an ongoing process of growing and constantly evolving what we do. And we believe people should love where they work as much as the work they do.

The studio is comprised of various workspaces in an open, shared environment. There is also a semi-private conference area downstairs for group sessions. Membership includes up to ten prints a day, water, coffee/tea, beer/wine, snacks, and a creative reference library. We are also one of the few coworking spaces open on weekends. Up to two guests are allowed up two hours free, but an additional charge applies for visits longer than two hours. Up to 10 pages of prints are free per day, and cost 50 cents per additional page. Additional rules are stated in our Terms of Use.

While we offer lockers and phone rooms, Rough Draft NYC is ideal for individuals and small groups whose work doesn't require a ton of physical storage space or talking on the phone all day. We encourage prospective members to come by during business hours to take a tour of the space.

Rough Draft NYC was founded by creative duo Alison & Glenn. Together they have created some of their best work and wanted a studio where they can share ideas and build a community. The couple and their two dogs (and two mice) live in Bushwick, Brooklyn.
