Front of the Paseo in Santa Barbara

Part of connectivity is being at the center of things. Which is how we knew the only place for Workzones was in Paseo Nuevo. Here, you’re close to everything: easy and ample parking, restaurants, shops, theaters, art galleries, and more. Now, with over 15,000 square feet of newly expanded, architecturally designed space, we’re optimized for flexibility, creativity, productivity, networking and inspiration.

Inspiring workplace in Santa Barbara at Workzones

Notice the bright sunlight pouring into our oversized windows, the views of the Paseo’s Spanish-inspired architecture, the inviting places to work – multi-height desks, comfy chairs, phone booths, private offices, meeting rooms, and more. Then notice what’s missing – distractions. And when you’re ready to cut loose, check out the bars, restaurants and nightclubs right outside our door.

Club concierge at Workzones

Get five-star, professional assistance from our on-site Club Concierge. Technology needs, printing, scanning, meeting set-ups, food deliveries, you name it, we’re here to help. Your guests, if you desire, can be greeted and escorted to your office.

Confidential conference rooms at Workzones in downtown Santa Barbara

Our meeting, conference and event rooms are strategically located for confidentiality and hands-on service. Private lockers, mail service, 24-hour access and more are all designed to enhance your privacy needs.


Every entrepreneur has had that “aha” moment. The trick, of course, is to transform your great ideas into real-world solutions. We had ours back in 2012 when we knew we wanted to create a new work/space paradigm in Santa Barbara and call it Workzones.

It definitely helped that we had a background in franchising. We, with a team of investors and entrepreneurs, have multiplied Massage Envy wellness spas to over 1,100 locations throughout the United States.

Our goal now is to create a unique space where ideas like ours have a place to flourish. A place where you don’t have to commit to years-long, soul-crushing leases. A place where you can find like-minded people with which to collaborate. And a place where dreams can organically grow. In essence – a community, an ethos, an inspiration. We’d love for you to join us and fulfill your dreams through our Workzones community.
