Glasshour

OPENED1038 DAYS AGO

Glasshour is a new coffee shop in Williamsburg that charges customers by the minute, not for coffee.

Coffee, snacks, WiFi and even games are all free at Glasshour but there is a catch – you have to pay for your time rather than the services. Williamsburg has its fair share of coffee spots for freelancers to hole up in and co-working spaces but Glasshour is the first cafe in the United States to offer a pay-per-minute place to use.

Customers are charged only for their time with the first hour costing $6 (regardless of how much of that hour you spend there). After the first hour, customers are charged 10 cents per minute. Then, any longer than four hours and customers are asked to pay a flat rate of $24 to stay as long as they like (well, maybe not all night).

Sure, that’s more expensive than two or three cups of coffee, but you can also get all the granola bars and coffee you like, free WiFi and there’s even a Monopoly night on Wednesdays! With the high number of freelancers and students living in this part of town, Glasshour could be offering a better option than paying out for a coworking membership or holing up in an overpriced coffee shop.

Like most coffee shops, the space isn’t huge but there are enough large tables and comfy couches to make you feel at home. Glasshour also hosts other game nights throughout the week including foosball tournaments and other board games.
