Progress Bar is the ultimate co-working space which offers 24/7 access to our members with its truly all-inclusive memberships.

Progress Bar started with the goal to create our own perfect office. We were the first and only startup space, and eventually the biggest co-working space in Rotterdam. Now, we are a boutique co-working club where we achieve our goals and share our lessons learned and sub-sequential success with each other. Together we realise our personal ambitions and drive progress in our fields.

We are a vibrant and international mix of entrepreneurs, developers, freelancers and researchers and all of us are contributing to the progress in our respective fields. We are an accessible and inclusive bunch, we give a warm welcome to all new peers in our community. We also hold each other accountable, whip up a treat for one another, and take ownership in the day to day operations of our Progress Bar.

You want to focus on what matters, not on how you’ll get lunch or if you brought cash for coffee. Our space has everything you need to be productive and to generate results. We need this unrestricted space to focus on our core goals if we want to achieve them. Yet we understand that we can accelerate our progress if we share what works and we acknowledge that celebrating success together is one of our greatest motivators.

Progress Bar offers a no barrier approach to co-working, everything is simply included in your membership. From the obvious wifi and printing to your lunch and drinks. More importantly, Progress Bar offers you the ideal space to gather with like minded peers, so you can achieve progress together.

From the communal kitchen to the (standing) desks to lounge set, different coffee brewing methods and boiling water from the tap to an event space with double 4k screens and 5.1 surround sound. We should have everything you need. If we don’t, we will make it our next goal!

Rates are All Inclusive (printing, lunch, snacks, beverages, etc.) but are excluding VAT. Keys require a deposit of 199,-.

"Magic community"

    May 2020

    This place has some magic to it. The strong community of 'builders' has helped me to grow my network, learn from others, and create lasting friendships. Leon is a great host and manages to make any gathering fun. He's also flexible and open to all kinds of initiatives. The open floor plan lowers the barrier to connect, as opposed to many co-working spaces. Out of the 15-ish workspaces I have visited, Progress Bar definitely wins on openness & community.

          I've been working at Progress Bar because is a cool place in the city where you feel like home and can chat with other people. The ambiance is great and they'll always make you feel good. If you are a book lover, you can seat in their nice open space and read a book or just work! We have been doing co-working days here and Leon and all the people working here are always open to welcome us and share with us their days. The community here is the best part and the space is awesome too! Don't hesitate to visit if you are around!

              November 2019

              I've worked in dozens of co-working spaces in four different continents and Progress Bar is my favourite so far. It's not as pretty as Hubud on Bali for example and it lacks a swimming pool like some of the co-working spaces I've been to, but it compensates amply with it's cosyness, the great community, all the amenities and the delicious and fun communal lunch. Leon the owner did a great job in creating and designing the place. He really makes sure everone feels at home and organizes events for members like an Eastern brunch, Friday afternoon drinks with beer and 'bitter balls' from the air fryer, etc. Already the first day my girlfriend and I felt very welcome since everybody here is super interested and social. That's perhaps what I appreciate the most: the community feeling. Although people here are very serious workwise, there is also a great social atmosphere with lots of chatting and laughter. Newcomers and people with a day pass are being treated as regular members. In conclusion: awesome place. Thanks Leon and keep on going like this!

                It's a great space, amazing decor, modern, and a friendly environment. It has all the amenities that you might need, private space if you need it. There is a great community vibe and everyone is helpful.

                  They literally have everything you would ever want, for a very affordable price. It's simply the best choice you can make when working in Rotterdam.

                        If you want to co-work in a place where you are not just welcomed as a (membership) number but as a real person - this is your place! Good working environment ranging from a living room area to fixed and flexible desks and (small) meeting rooms. Wifi is excellent also. And the nice thing - around 12.30 -1 pm they all prepare and have lunch together (all ingredients are included in the co-working fee - unbelievable!!). So lunch is a good time to get advice or just vent your work success or frustrations - but this is also possible during other parts of the day. Don't worry - if you need to focus they will give you that space also! Best co-working place I have found in the Netherlands so far, especially for people engaged in start-ups. Because the place is not too big everyone knows everyone - which contributes to the at home feeling. The terrace outside and the location (close to Rotterdam Blaak train station and the Market Hall (both at 5 minutes walk) are bonuses. In summary: highly recommended!

                          Progress Bar is a supportive community that helps you build progress with your business, whether you are a start-up, a freelancer or an enthousiastic entrepeneur. The space is small, supported by a big community, and includes all conveniences such as unlimited food and nice community drinks on fridays and/or when one of the members has something to celebrate and reached his/her goals. I personally like the supportive attitude of all the members always open for a friendly talk. They all feel like colleauges while I am working as a starting and single entrepeneur launching my new business. I do believe that the space is a safe environment for women/men/spiritual en enthousiatic souls to connect!

                                Progress Bar is a unique coworking space with a really warm and welcoming community of professionals. For me the combination between working in a quite environment where I can focus really well, and at the same time lots of opportunity for 'gezelligheid' and good talks with the other coworkers makes this place so special. Oh, and of course the fact that the fresh, delicious and healthy food is in included in the price! Heavenly!

                                    Progress Bar Rotterdam is much more than a location: it's a community, and that makes it such an inspiring and enjoyable workplace.

                                        July 2019

                                        I'm the kind of guy that flourishes, when I have fun at what I do. For me personally that means good food, good people, thus a good community. At the Progress Bar I get the fix I need. Talking shop, outdoor lunch, indoor brunch, private rooms for long phone calls, customer revival programs and drinks on Friday. Lastly I'd like to add it's customary to pop a bottle of champagne when you meet a personal goal and it's always ready, ice cold waiting to be celebrated.

                                        "One of the few real COworking spaces in Rotterdam"

                                          July 2019

                                          The reason for me to join a coworking space, in general, is that I get really bored working from home alone. I like being around likeminded people and make work a bit more fun. Not every coworking space offers this kind of atmosphere though. At Progress Bar it feels like you work with some of your best friends on a daily basis. I don't know how the owner, Leon, does it, but I felt very comfortable right from the minute I walked in. The members are truly interested in one another's work and lives, and this is what I feel is what coworking is about. Great extras are the communal lunches, the whiskey & champagne themed meeting room and the lounge area.

                                            June 2019

                                            The Progress Bar is a great co-working space, perfectly located in the city center of Rotterdam and easily accessible with public transport and a short walk. The space is very big and consists of everything you'll ever need: Kitchen, desks, big open area (also with working space), terrace, and two very stylish meeting rooms. Leon is an excellent host and really cares for both the space and everyone that calls this space their office. Besides that, the usual and expected: Good internet, good desks, nice members.

All the different spaces are also a big plus: next to the space with desks, there are also two meeting rooms/Skype rooms and a large and very light lounge area. In conclusion: awesome place.

                                                    cThe space is small, supported by a big community, and includes all conveniences such as unlimited food and nice community drinks on fridays and/or when one of the members has something to celebrate and reached his/her goals. I personally like the supportive attitude of all the members always open for a friendly talk. They all feel like colleauges while I am working as a starting and single entrepeneur launching my new business. I do believe that the space is a safe environment for women/men/spiritual en enthousiatic souls to connect!

                                                      I've been working at Progress Bar because is a cool place in the city where you feel like home and can chat with other people. The ambiance is great and they'll always make you feel good. If you are a book lover, you can seat in their nice open space and read a book or just work! We have been doing co-working days here and Leon and all the people working here are always open to welcome us and share with us their days. The community here is the best part and the space is awesome too! Don't hesitate to visit if you are around!

                                                        June 2019

                                                        Progress Bar is the most fun co-working space in Rotterdam, I love their community and approach to work. It is an awesome space to meet other entrepreneurs and work in your projects. It is a relaxing environment and it is run by the Startup Foundation a great organisation that helps entrepreneurs with their challenges. I have hosted two events with Progress bar and they were very successful and the community helpful.

                                                          January 2019

                                                          Progress Bar is an awesome place to work. I joined last december and it's the best decision for my business of 2018! The environment is very productive, but there is also a really relaxed and friendly vibe in the room. Also I really love the community aspect. There are regular drinks to meet new and interesting people; great to network, but also to share knowledge. There are some great growth hackers and marketeers here that helped me grow my business. The internet is good, but could be a little bit faster. Luckily they are working on it! Finally, Progress Bar is located very centrally so that's nice because I live in the city. I would definitely recommend to try it out.

                                                          "Highly recommended"

                                                            September 2018

                                                            I highly recommend this place. Here is why: When I review a place I look for the following aspects: - location - ability to work - utilities - ambience - hosting Location First of all, the location is great. It lies in the heart of Rotterdam, and is therefore easy to reach. My ability to work I think it's important to work in a space where I will not be interrupted by sounds/noise from other people. Altough the place has open spaces, I got really productive and was able to get a lot of my work done. In other words: there are no unwanted distractions for me at this location. Utilities The place offers all the utilities you need to get your work done; desks, good internet connection and enough food and coffee to stay awake ;). I really love the "lounge area" where you can unwind with some tv / ps4 games. If you need to hold a private meeting: check out the champagne or whiskey room. The ambience in these rooms is inspiring. Ambience The whole setting gives a relaxed feeling. As said, there are certain areas which will provide you with needed inspiration. Hosting None of the above would be this good if it wasn't for its fascinating host. Leon does a great job in making everything as comfortable as possible. Conclusion: highly recommended

                                                              I've been working here for a month and I must say that I loved everything about this place. There are a beautiful space where to work very relaxing, with a comfortable bench, a lot of beautiful plants, a good wifi connection and a ps4 to play with the other workers in the downtimes . The outside space is great but a bit too noisy. Food is good and it is always openly accessible. Furthermore it is very near to the city centre, just a few minutes away. People here are nice and you can learn a lot of new things from them.

                                                                I'm new in Rotterdam, I moved from Colombia, and there I worked as an Innovation Consultant and Startup Mentor. When I arrived here, I was looking for a coworking space just to feel me again at home, I visited this coworking twice, There is a beautiful space where to work, with excellent wifi, comfortable types of furniture and mainly a great Host, he is caring for every detail and every request for the coworkers. The sad side of my story there, I couldn't stay that Friday to enjoy its cocktail night, but I hope to go back to enjoy the place and the Gin that I missed :).

I've traveled around the world and worked in many different places, nothing matches the vibe at the Progress Bar. On occasion events and meetups are organized, which are open to all people that are members of the Progress Bar The space is ran by Leon Pals, he always goes out of his way to provide you with everything you need and to make sure the space is a great place to work for everyone. At the space I actually met Jeroen and we're planning to go mountainbiking together. Being able to work together and share hobbies is a great benefit.

It's relatively quiet, though it's still possible to talk to people on the other side of the office. The reason I'm still renting a private desk after almost 2 years is because of that. People are very laid-back, easy to talk to, exchange ideas, hang out together after work hours, or have lunch together. It's the ideal space if you are self-employed or a small start-up and want to be part of a community. On top of that Leon and Simone organize lots of events for entrepreneurs to learn more about the startup process and share your experience with others. Highly recommended!

There is a nice atmosphere inside, the team makes sure that everything is set up. The location is just a few minutes away from Blaak station, so it's easy to reach. It is the right place to work and think with stable and fast internet. Recently spent a weekend here, participating in a course, it was a great experience.

It is equipped with everything: excellent Wi - Fi , very good food, well located within the city of Rotterdam , easily reachable ( also with the public transport , 5 min walk to Rotterdam Blaak, markthal, or to a stunning view on the river Maas ) In the office there are great people who you can talk with . It has all you need as a startup . In the weekends there are also some events which are great to attend if you're looking to expand your knowledge . Highly recommended !

They offer not only a beautiful and creative physical space, but the atmosphere really sets this place apart. Leon, Simone, and everyone renting a space there are very open. You can talk over ideas and work through challenges with the group here and when we want to share a success of ours, we celebrate together with champagne! They have a full kitchen, a large lounge for groups and private spots for calls and meetings, and a gorgeous patio to relax and think. Definitely recommend Progress Bar as the best co-working space in Rotterdam!

Leon, Simone and team provide a great atmosphere, and are a great gateway to the global startup ecosystem. So, you're not only part of a co-working, but you join a community that extends way beyond vibrant Rotterdam. I enjoyed some real inspiring and change-making events, with key players in innovation and startups. If you like some fresh air, you can access some real nice outdoor area, a roof terrace. The location of progress bar is in central Rotterdam, accessibility by public transport and car are great. Don't look any further, here's you're new work-home!

Previously as tenants in the co-working space and now as regular visitors of all the different type of events they organise. The fact that we (and many other (former) members) are still keen on being part of the community says a lot about how Leon and his team have managed to create one of the best spaces in the Benelux! The working space itself has a cosy but focused atmosphere located in the heart of Rotterdam. The team makes sure that everything is set up for you to perform your best: Spacious desks with all the necessary facilities (free coffee ;) ), open community spaces and the infamous office lunches (and drinks) where everyone joins! It sure feels like a second home.

The location with its terrace are superb, the facilities with comfy chairs and some standing work options are sublime and the people are about the best one could ever ask for. A good place to get called on your bullcrap and find genuine support. We enjoyed some drinks and food while learning from each other what has kept us going for the past years. Good to witness growth in a constantly shifting group of people that have at least 3 years of some sense of a common tradition or history.

Nice mix of people from different backgrounds and with various skill sets. Great food. It's usually quiet so easy to concentrate on my own work. I like the option to sit at a real desk or to chill out and work downstairs where they have benches, plants and tables. I don't really know what else to say about this place but this website won't let me post this review until I write the required amount of words. Which I will finally reach in two or three more words..

The space is efficiently divided into open office space, couch working space and meeting rooms, and yes there is also a fully equipped kitchen. I feel super productive working here, good vibes helps with good flow of thoughts. Also have to mention there is door directly linked to a roof terrace/balcony with a lot of space. It feels really good to have fresh air once in a while without losing time to go outside of the building. Overall a really good working place to be!

It was a great experience in terms of location, outdoor access, light, plants, coffee and down to earth people. It's a place where real work gets done, with enough room for all of the different working styles that people have. I would happily come here again to work ! It also has a great location in terms of transit, bike access and proximity to the Markthall and the public library. This doesn't feel like a fraternity house. It feels welcoming and inclusive. Next time, I am stacking the beanbags and I am going to do some solid reading - and just maybe take a nap!

Within walking distance of major public transport hubs and some of the well-known sites in Rotterdam. It is a great place to work with stable and fast internet, comfortable seats and a great outdoor space. The plants in the office make the office feel like a greenhouse. What I truly love about this place is that it is not just a co-working space. Members help each other out and occasionally have a drink together. That is the purpose of the progress bar ;-). I would definitely recommend working here!

Staff is super nice, and memberships are extremely reasonable. The location is very central, and easily accessible from all over Rotterdam. The included lunch is great, and everyone generally has a great time. Every Friday they have an open house/cocktails, Leon definitely knows how to make some fantastic drinks. The outside area is perfect for gatherings, eating lunch in the sun or taking calls when it's nice weather. The downstairs portion of the office has a lot of light, and they frequently have watch parties for sporting events and apple keynotes. Overall amazing space!

                                                                                                  If you want to co-work in a place where you are not just welcomed as a (membership) number but as a real person - this is your place! Good working environment ranging from a living room area to fixed and flexible desks and (small) meeting rooms. Wifi is excellent also. And the nice thing - around 12.30 -1 pm they all prepare and have lunch together (all ingredients are included in the co-working fee - unbelievable!!). So lunch is a good time to get advice or just vent your work success or frustrations - but this is also possible during other parts of the day. Don't worry - if you need to focus they will give you that space also! Best co-working place I have found in the Netherlands so far, especially for people engaged in start-ups. Because the place is not too big everyone knows everyone - which contributes to the "at home" feeling. The terrace outside and the location (close to Rotterdam Blaak train station and the Market Hall (both at 5 minutes walk) are bonuses. In summary: highly recommended!

The team working there are really warm and welcoming and the space has a great layout divided between a more formal and professional office space, private meeting rooms, an open kitchen area, a relaxed space for collaborating, pitching and presenting ideas as well as a cool terrace area which even has a hammock! This is the kind of space you dream about working when you decide to become an entrepreneur! And added bonus is the fact that the amazng Markthal is just 5mins away for loads of cheap and tasty lunch options.

The Startup Port is a great place, where you feel right at home, the host is amazing, the events organised at the Startup Port are interesting so even while sometimes not working you can still keep on learning. If you're based in Rotterdam or even just visiting and you need a place to work, don't think twice just hop on over to the Startup Port. In short a great place, that I have absolutely no problem recommending to anyone. So come on over and say hi to everyone.
