Cincinnati Venues with Internet Access for Patrons

This details locations where WiFi with Internet access is offered at places that have some measure of being a “Third Place”–some place hanging out with a laptop would not be frowned upon, provided you are a a customer (having a coffee or beer), and not being too much a nusence (not nursing that coffee or beer when the table space may be needed). The individual site may require some password, agreement to terms, etc. At present, this is not documented, but the list will expand to include this at a later date.

Note that this simply notes the official availability of this service. It does not, in general, attempt to provide insight to the quality of the service (speed, stability, etc.), or the security of the site.

There are some places I intend to check on my own. These are left blank.
