A new place for
creative businesses


Rubato Upstairs is a shared workspace, right in the heart of Brunswick.

Established primarily as a place for creative professionals, it is home to a growing community of smart and passionate individuals from across the creative industries – including media, entertainment, technology, design, communications, music, arts and culture.  

Limited to 28 desks, ensuring that everyone’s a familiar face, the space is run by an onsite manager committed to fostering a dynamic, productive and supportive working environment. With oodles of natural light and plenty of space to roam, everything’s geared to helping you to do great work, in your own way.

And if you happen to enjoy some musical relief at the end of a long day, our downstairs neighbour is Tempo Rubato - a new live classical music venue and bar linked to the Piano Project, a Melbourne based charity sponsoring piano lessons for children who are new immigrants.

Creative businesses exist in a brave new world, full of emerging opportunities and business models generated by a proliferation of new technologies. The possibilities suddenly seem much broader than before. More than just a co-working space, Rubato Upstairs is a community hub for those wanting to make the most of the moment.
