Passing through town and in need of a place to work? Let us point you in the right direction with seven New York City co-working spaces that offer day passes.

NEW YORK CITY - Mixing work and pleasure while traveling is becoming more and more common, so finding a nice space with reliable WiFi in an unfamiliar place is of the utmost importance — even when you're on vacation. New York City is home to dozens of co-working spaces, many of which offer day passes, but perks like yoga classes, concierge services, and nap rooms make a few stand out. Settle in at one of these seven beautifully designed spaces, including Fathom's very own home base.

Location: Financial District

What's to love: We're partial to the wellness-minded co-working space Fathom calls home. Modern furnishings, beautiful travel photographs from Cereal co-founder and photographer Rich Stapleton, and an abundance of green plants create a warm and inviting environment. A fully-stocked coffee bar with super friendly baristas churns out lattes and serves an assortment of baked goods — including impossibly delicious vegan muffins from Brooklyn Whiskers. There's a fitness studio with a roster of classes that range from yoga and meditation to bootcamp and group runs, making it easy to take a mid-day self-care break and freshen up in the sleek locker room with changing rooms and showers. Also on offer: an assortment of interesting talks and networking events.

Included: WiFi, coffee, tea, bike storage, access to private phone booths and locker rooms.

Cost: $30 per day (includes fitness class). Fathom readers can take advantage of a special monthly rate of $300 (regularly $400) or weekly rate of $75.

A packed calendar of social and learning events gives guests an opportunity to mingle. Meeting rooms are available for an additional fee.

The Farm SoHo

Additional access to conference rooms is included with monthly memberships.
