Hudson – a Third Ward-based business lounge, coffee and wine bar – will finally have a soft opening the week of Oct. 15.

The purpose of the space, 310 N. Broadway, is to provide professional, high-tech office space for entrepreneurs, small businesses and consultants who otherwise work from home or use coffee shops to conduct business and meetings.

Memberships are required, still available and offer members use of the space on a come-and-go basis, much like a health club membership. Coffee and wine will be available in this unique co-working environment.

"Hudson is designed to be a vibrant, forward-leaning environment that creates opportunities to tap into a professional community and local resources. To facilitate that, we’ve designed channels so our members can interact, connect and network with each other," says William Waldren, the entrepreneur who is spearheading Hudson.
