How Little Tokyo Two is reworking coworking space in Brisbane


We’ve discussed coworking spaces plenty, in the past. But a new one on the scene is shaking up the well-established formula.

Little Tokyo Two (LT2) a new coworking space in Brisbane that is doing things decidedly different.

For people with big ideas

LT2 offers Brisbane’s “big idea” people: creatives, start-ups and small business a collaborative, creative, supportive, unique workspace and the opportunity to meet top industry professionals, attend diverse industry events with like-minded people, a space to work, play, eat and hold all kinds of business.

Whether you work best out of an office, hybrid cubical or hot-desk, LT2 has a solution. And the results are already impressive.

Within just eight weeks or so of operation, Little Tokyo Two has seen:

  • 80+ members signed up
  • 60 individual companies
  • 7 events per week (wine tasting, yoga, business workshops, guest speakers, pitch nights, game shows, acting classes, business networking groups)
  • Sponsorship offers from large-scale companies

And, according to a recent company statement from LT2, it’s all happened through word of mouth.

A word from the boss

“As we continue through 2015 Little Tokyo Two has now filled its last private office space and there is only the most valuable membership opportunity left. Base members benefit from; unlimited venue/room hire, all event entry for free, a space to work 7 days and unlimited access to mentors,” LT2 Founder Jock Fairweather recently told Anthill.

“Step by step, LT2HQ is proving that it can provide members with every possible opportunity to grow, maximize efficiency and learn how to collaborate freely and effectively. Co-working spaces let you work and play in an environment filled with motivated, out of the box thinkers who network and help each other to fulfill each others goals in the most innovative and creative way possible.”

For the growing number of working lunches happening at the location, Little Tokyo Two conveniently doubles as an event space and hosts an authentic Chinese restaurant upstairs known as “Happy Boy.”

Every workspace needs in-house dining, don’t you think?
