I can't say enough great things about Enerspace Coworking Chicago. Having worked with them on a regular basis for over a year, they are nothing short of professional and their space is perfect for a person needing a dedicated workspace to startup companies that need a few desks or conference room to build and grow. I've used their kitchen space primarily and it's conducive to learning, open and has plenty of room for interaction.
