Last week, our much-loved Wix Lounge moved to an incredible new co-working space in the heart of Manhattan! The Wix Lounge brings together a community of creative professionals, small business owners, up-and-coming artists and freelancers who come for the vibrant working space, free coffee, and 1-on-1 Wix website support.
The new Wix Lounge is located in a penthouse overlooking the historic Chelsea Hotel (where Leonard Cohen famously had a tryst with Janis Joplin and lived to write a song about it). The much-awaited opening took place last Monday. Thrilled loungers filled up the place in record time and we actually had to improvise extra seats to accommodate the crowd!
In addition to offering a free co-working space, the lounge hosts unique events and Wix workshops weekday evenings. Check out our calendar to stay up-to-date with all upcoming events. Each month, new works by gifted New York artists are exhibited in the space. Right now we’re featuring Luis Martin. You can view his brilliant works on his Wix website.
Great news for Wix Pros! The spacious new lounge has an area dedicated just for Wix Pros and affiliates who can build Wix websites while getting their daily cup ‘o Joe and interact with fellow Wix power users.
Summer Events Are in Full Swing!
The summer event season kicked off with a rooftop party at Brooklyn Brush Studios. Hundreds of creative Brooklynites came to celebrate the Bushwick artistic community and chow down on empanadas served up by TantoSabor!
Next up was a jam-packed weekend of fun at the Figment NYC Interactive art festival on Governor’s Island. A lineup of talented performers (with fabulous Wix websites of course!) entertained the crowd at Le Tigre Tent, where the Little Big Funtime ensemble held side-splitting cabarets, Under One Dancers performed Tweet dances based on ideas tweeted by the audience, Tim Heck held a birthday celebration for everybody, and kids played connect-the-dots on free Wix T-shirts! Weekend highlights included performers juggling bananas with their mouths, a sword-swallowing show with The Lady Aye and Figment attendees building Wix websites in a tiny circus tent.
More great events are slated for June and July, including live performances by Under One Dances and a free Wix workshop on creating great PR for your online business!
So next time you are in Manhattan, join us for one of our famous Wix events, or grab your laptop come in for free coffee, Wi-Fi, and support for your Wix website!
