If you work remotely, you can start to feel cooped up at home. Trust us, we get it. We highly recommend getting some fresh air + sunlight, especially when there’s nice weather.
To get you out of the home office, here are some spots around Indy where you can work outside — Wi-Fi connection included.
Parlor Public House, 600 E. Ohio St.
This has become a popular spot to work from, especially with its private booths inside to take Zoom calls. It also has a small outdoor seating area, but fair warning — tables are limited.
Pro tip: This spot also has a strict “no laptops after 7 p.m.” rule when it transforms into a cocktail lounge. But we’d hope you’ve signed off by then anyways.
Provider, 1101 E. 16th St.
This patio space is plentiful with tables and chairs. If it’s a hot day, there’s also an awning that creates some shade to make it more comfortable.
Central Library, 40 E. St. Clair St.
The East Garden is a little hidden gem on the grounds of the library with tables + benches to work from.
Pro tip: The Wi-Fi might not be at its strongest so if you have meetings or calls, it might be best to go inside.
Bovaconti, 1042 Virginia Ave.
If you’ve driven through Fountain Square, you can’t miss this outdoor patio space by the blue mural. It’s decently sized + gets a good amount of shade tucked in the corner with the awning.
Amelia’s, 1637 Nowland Ave.
This bakery shop’s Windsor Park location has a nice little patio to work from while you munch on a pastry + sip some coffee.
Pro tip: There’s a small meeting room if you venture upstairs and the back has a cozy sitting area if you can snag it.
Foundry Provisions, 236 E. 16th St.
This near north side cafe offers coffee, sandwiches, ice cream, outdoor seating, and Wi-Fi. What more could you need? It’s also open until 5 p.m. — when the work day ends.
The Garage at Bottleworks, 906 Carrollton Ave.
There’s plenty of seating along the side of the building, plus even more outdoor patio space on the north side. When you need a snack break, you’re steps away from plenty of options + if you need a caffeine boost, Blue Collar Coffee is within reach.
Blue Mind Coffee, 646 E. 38th St.
This coffee shop at the historic Rose Building recently added a few tables and chairs outside the shop — just in time for nice weather. There’s also a new bike rack if you arrive on two wheels. Keep in mind there’s only a few tables and no shade.
draft creative space, 1525 Prospect St.
This new coworking space not only has an aesthetic atmosphere inside with it’s main room + peaceful sunroom — it also has a large garden patio space. Don’t have a membership? Don’t worry. It offers day passes for $25.
