Aberdeen Pubs with Wifi

Recommended Posts

Are there any in the city-centre?

Had a quick look around the other week and didn't see any blatantly advertising wifi. When I gave up and went to The Bassment for a pint & decent tunes and asked I have a sneaking suspicion the bar person there checked the bottles of spirits incase they had any named "wifi" ;)

Starbucks &/or Cafe LAN ain't any use btw, I want a strongbow with my internet on my next visit.

I'd agree with Camie on this one.

However, not a pub, but great place to sit about with your coffee and computer if you want an alternative to Starbucks: Kilau.

It's not really the best idea to take a laptop into a place where they are highly likely going to spill their drink over it.

This is also achievable in the home however. As my friend discovered. On my laptop. :(

you'll get wifi anywhere in the city center pretty much. There's no way I'd take a laptop to any of these places tho.

No, you probably wouldn't want to be looking at dwarf porn in the Tilted Wig.

True, I'd rather look at dwarf porn than the clientele of the triple kirks though.

Triple Kirks has it.
slain's also do it.
Cheers, those two should satisfy my urges and still manage to be familiar enough and close enough to the train station. :)

And also make me wonder why I walked past them the last time I was up and didn't see them advertise it with even a wee badge or summat outside their doors :S

As for taking the laptop to the pub, I don't even think about it as other than fine during the day and early evening but I'd agree later on when the likelihood of stumbling, spilling drunks is higher then nah.

I tend to frequent the Tilted Wig on a saturday afternoon with my laptop, so I can listen to the Inverness Caley game on the online radio, whilst getting some much needed school work done. Usually combine it with a late lunch or early tea, as the Tilted Wig food is pretty gooood.

Plus, there are no passwords/tokens etc required. Just switch on, choose the Tilted Wig from your available wireless connections list and away you go.

Now things are getting really bizarre. Taking your computer to the pub, to listen to the radio, while doing work?

It's a mad, mad, mad, mad world I tells ya.

I went a visiting and ended up in Cafe LAN :(

Cos none of the pubs I tried could guarantee their wifi was working before I got my laptop out to check which seemed like a lot of hassle if there was no wifi... They should have lied and I'd just have bought a drink rather than work sober on those horrifically uncomfy seats in Cafe LAN, next time I'm bagsying a sofa.

free wi-fi

You can sit beside any of the internet terminals provided by Aberdeen Shitty Cooncil and get free internet access..one on the Castlegate..one beside the music hall..and there's one outside Torry Library..but I can't guarantee you won't get mugged!!
