Working from home can be stressful; yet being at the office can become repetitive and tiresome. With an abundance of small quirky cafes, Milwaukee is a great city to shake things up in your work life and go remote. Here are 10 great remote workplaces in Milwaukee where you can be productive outside of the office.
We've labeled our favorite places with a few icons, to help you know what to expect when you get there. Follow this key:
If you’ve ever been to the Hudson Business Lounge, located in Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward, then you already know that there is nothing else like it. Regardless of your work style, Hudson has a place for you. Depending on which membership you purchase, you can have access to large, open-concept collaboration spaces, cubicles, couches, solo studios and more. And if a membership is not for you then there is a great cafe on the left side, which has free wifi.
Every time I step inside the Milwaukee Art Museum I can’t help but feel inspired. The cafe is located in the back of the lobby near a large set of windows, which offer customers a great view. The natural lighting in this place is awesome and the building itself is pretty amazing. So after you finish up your work, treat yourself with a tour through the museum and you will not be disappointed.
One of the most popular Colectivo locations seems to be the Lakefront cafe. The coffee shop is located in the old Milwaukee River Flushing Building and it has a rugged feel that captivates its customers every time. The only problem is that it is often over crowded and noisy. So if you’re a person that has a hard time focusing with constant stimulation around you I would suggest checking out some of the other Colectivo locations.
My personal favorite is the Prospect Cafe. They have great customer service with indoor, outdoor, and garage seating. It has a lot of space so it never seems as busy, and with the variety of seating this location is perfect no matter how you prefer to work.
This Stone Creek location is a great place to sit down, plug in headphones, and get some work done. The baristas are great and they always seem to make the drinks at the perfect temperatures. This location has a unique industrial feel and lots of space to spread out your materials and attack the day’s work.
For starters, the food at Sven's Cafe is nothing less than amazing and the servers always make great conversation. Whether you decide to eat breakfast or just order a coffee, Sven’s Cafe is located within the heart of Bayview and is always one of my go to locations if I need to get away and be productive.
If you’re the type of person that needs peace and quiet to be productive, or you’re just looking to separate yourself from the chaos for a day, then there are plenty of Public Library options in the Milwaukee area. Check them out here.
I absolutely love this Walker’s Point coffee shop. Anodyne has both a great coffee selection and a great atmosphere to work in, regardless of the type of work you need to tackle. Whether you need a place to unplug and reflect, or simply an area to accomplish your day-to-day tasks on your computer, then Anodyne Coffee is the place for you.
This little coffee shop is located in the Third Ward and is also great for any type of work that you need to accomplish. They have a great drink menu (try their Mocha Blanc!) and a brunch menu worth gazing over as well.
So this place can get a little hectic. But there is seating on the second floor where you can relax while all of the chaos goes on beneath you. If you work better in an environment with constant stimulation then this may be your go-to out of office location. In the Milwaukee Public Market there is never a dull moment and if you’re hungry there are a lot of adventurous foods to try.
