Houston now has a coworking space for women

Sesh Coworking seems like a high-end loft at first glance, worthy for instagram and a penthouse for someone hip and influential on social media.

The mid-century-modern furniture is wrapped in plush velvet, the houseplants tastefully appointed, the art eye-catching and modern. And on the morning I visit, the entire scene is bathed in a haze of natural light streaming in from the glass ceiling above—while Britney Spears’s “Baby One More Time” wafts across the room on the loudspeaker.

Despite the private shower, red wine facial masks near the front desk, and bottles of red wine in the fridge, Founders Meredith Wheeler and Maggie Segrich are quick to point out this place is no spa. The members—who pay $25 for a daily pass and between $139 to $199 for a monthly membership—are here for the same reason. 

“The women who come here are here to work,” Wheeler said. “This is a relaxing environment, sure, but it’s also a very collaborative and productive one.”

Hoping to carve out a space designed to accommodate the reality of the changing workday, Wheeler has joined forces with Segrich, a freshly arrived New York transplant and small business owner, to create Houston’s first coworking space specifically aimed at female professionals.

Housed inside a two-thousand-square-foot Montrose loft, Sesh Coworking offers typical office accoutrements, with access to workstations, a conference room, lots of seating, and plenty of coffee. But there’s also a designated “wellness room” on site, a game area for children, prominently displayed Beyoncé idolatry, and a fifteen-foot indoor tree named after Ann Richards, a beloved Texas feminist and one time occupant of the Governor’s mansion. It all adds up, the women say, to a working space rooted in flexibility and support.
