Connect: 10 Philly Bars with Wi-Fi

We’ve come to expect Internet connectivity everywhere. It’s in every home and office now, for sure, but also in airports, cafes, bookstores, supermarkets and salons. Why not in bars? For those times when you want to sip a cold brew while typing notes, share a glass of wine while reviewing a project, or just browse the net while savoring a Sazerac, here are 10 drinking establishments around town that can hook you up, literally:

The Bards: Expansive Wi-Fi coverage is available throughout the entire bar and restaurant, free of charge (Rittenhouse).

Chickie and Pete's:  Follow the games on TV and online with the free connection, available in the sports lounge, dining room and outdoor seating (South Philly).

City Tap House: Set up shop next to a fire pit on the elevated deck with a high-speed Internet connection. The password-protected Wi-Fi is available to all patrons, free of charge (West Philly).

Fado Irish Pub: Coverage includes the entire pub, but requires patrons to purchase a pint of Guinness (or anything else will do, though perhaps not win as much respect) before they can log on to the connection (Rittenhouse).

The Field House: Conventioneers in search of a break or shoppers at Reading Terminal Market can hook into the password protected signal at no cost by asking their bartender or server (Market East).

McGillin's Olde Ale House: With a signal as reliable as the oldest bar in the city, drinkers can hook into the network called 'Free Beer' to get service without a password (Midtown Village).

Paddy Whacks: South Street partiers can find a bit of respite in this free and easy Wi-Fi connection (South Street).

South Philadelphia Tap Room: As you’d expect from this relaxed craft beer pub, no password is necessary for coverage, offered to guests throughout the entire dining room (South Philly).

Three Monkeys Cafe: Turn-of-the-century decor or not, free Wi-Fi with no password available throughout the restaurant, including the outdoor tree deck (Northeast).

Triumph Brewing Company: A signal as strong as some of the house-brewed Belgians is available; all that's needed is a password, which can be obtained free of charge (Old City).
