Breather creates peaceful, practical and beautifully-designed spaces where you can work, meet and relax. 

Currently operating out of New York, San Francisco, Boston, Montreal and Ottawa, Breather helps you unlock a space of your own, on-the-go and on-demand. 

Booking is easy – simply find and reserve a Breather near you on our iOS and Android apps or on our website. You can book rooms for 30 minutes, a few hours or an entire day. 

By partnering with Breather, property owners, building managers and commercial real-estate brokers can make more money from their unused and under-performing space and thereby increase the value of their existing real estate portfolios. 

Breather has raised funding from RRE and Real Ventures, as well as some of the most respected angel investors in Silicon Valley and New York. 

Since launching, we’ve been featured in The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Atlantic, Fortune, Dwell and TechCrunch, to name a few.
