Since its launch in March 2017, Common Ground has opened 15 venues in Malaysia. Located in Menara BT, the latest addition to the Common Ground family occupies both the first and second floors.

The strategic location means that it's surrounded by many shops and facilities, including restaurants, banks, gyms, hospitals, entertainment, and more.

It's only a 5-minute walk from the Kerinchi LRT station, and is connected to other bus and train routes as well as major highways, making it super convenient to get to.

Just like the other branches, Common Ground Bangsar South is decked out with all their signature components

This includes a café, event space, boardrooms, meeting rooms, lounges, call booths, and three formats of standard workspace - hot desks, fixed desks, and private offices.

They recently invited us to spend a day working there and we've gotta say that we were impressed from the moment we stepped in

With warm lighting and a cosy, tropical vibe, the wide open space is modern, inviting, and friendly. There are lots of different types of areas for you to work from, to suit any working style. Whether you prefer to camp out in a corner by yourself or take over a long desk with your team, there's a spot for you.

We chose the latter option and grabbed a long desk for ourselves, spreading out across it for the day

Armed with hot cups of complimentary coffee and tea from the open pantry and surrounded by such an inviting environment, it was easy for us to lose ourselves in our work. We were super productive and got loads done throughout the day!

Our favourite area was this one filled with comfy couches. It was a nice little space for us to chill when we wanted a break, and we even ended up having a short team huddle there.

For those that prefer some privacy, there are plenty of private rooms spread across both floors, from big boardroom-style meeting rooms to smaller ones perfect for discussions or brainstorm sessions

Common Ground Bangsar South is also home to all kinds of cool events hosted by their partner brands. On the day we were there, Salad Atelier was giving out free salad, yums!
