Maroon New Orleans - Coworking Space

Rating: 3.9 stars

Maroon is a coworking space for black entrepreneurs in New Orleans. Unfortunately, that doesn’t describe me, so I’m not the best person to review this space. Here’s everything I did learn on my visit to the space.


  • Has a focus and target audience (if you’re in the target audience) which likely improves the networking
  • Small space, so you’ll likely know everybody in the office
  • Nice amenities for a small space: podcast studio, virtual and dedicated mailboxes, shower


  • Excludes a good portion of the population with its focus (ie. it’s not really an option for many coworkers)
  • The 10 private offices are full (that’s not a negative, per se, it’s just not an option for newcomers right now)
  • The space was completely empty and I get the feeling individual coworking memberships are low (a negative for a space that focuses on community)

See where Maroon ranks amongst the best coworking spaces in New Orleans.

  • If this vibes with your beliefs, then this will be a nice, small space to work and network.
