If working from the corner of your bedroom or the local coffee shop is getting tiresome, we have a handful of unique places to plant your laptop.

What to know: All of our picks offer different scenes, so pick appropriately for your calendar. Each features WiFi connections and a variety of places to sit, but not all offer convenient power outlets.

McGregor Square: The outdoor tables, some in sunlight and others in shade, are great for working outside on a beautiful day — or you can lounge on the green for a conference call.

  • Pro tip: Arrive shortly before lunch and grab food at the numerous restaurants, or have coworkers join for happy hour drinks.

Food halls: It's not the quietest location, but Denver Central Market, Stanley Marketplace and Zeppelin Station offer plenty of seating and options for coffee and food to keep you fueled.

  • Pro tip: Perusing the various options is also a nice way to take a break from sitting all day.

MCA Cafe: The Museum of Contemporary Art is on our list of best outdoor coffee shops, so check out the great downtown Denver views and enjoy the quiet setting.

  • Pro tip: You'll need to buy a ticket.

Local breweries: A morning beer may seem like too much for many, but breweries are now offering nonalcoholic options to get your day started.

  • Pro tip: A number of local brewpubs open at 11am, so grab an early lunch and linger until it's time for a beer.

Denver Central Library: Find a table inside the stacks of library books and channel your inner college student cramming for an exam to crank out that deadline project.

  • Pro tip: Check the library's website because construction is ongoing and only the first floor is currently open.

Botanic Gardens: For a more serene experience, buy a membership to the Botanic Gardens and relax on a bench in the shade of the flora or at the cafe tables.

  • Pro tip: A little seat cushion — like this one that rolls to the size of a burrito — is a comfy addition.

Coors Field: Find a midafternoon weekday game — when the crowds are smaller — and head to the rail at the rooftop deck for a standing desk with a stunning view of the field and the mountains.

  • Pro tip: Arrive early and grab a chair on the terrace level in left field.

Museum of Nature & Science: When it gets hot, head inside and find a comfy spot near the windows that overlook City Park and the downtown skyline.

  • Pro tip: For a mental break or for inspiration, take a walk through the exhibits to reset the brain.

Improper City: This coffee bar and food truck bazaar in the River North neighborhood is great for a Friday afternoon. Grab a nitro coffee before you transition to a cocktail on the dog-friendly patio.

  • Pro tip: Spend your lunch break scaling the climbing wall next door at Movement gym.

Union Station: Just in front of the Terminal Bar, find tables, power outlets and cushioned chairs to work, or grab the writing desk to craft your next great memo or novel.

  • Pro tip: The travelers coming and going make for good people-watching, so you'll need concentration or a light workload.
