Open Help 2017 will be held at Union Hall, a historic Cincinnati beer hall that has been given a new life as a coworking space and startup accelerator.


We recommend the Millennium Hotel Cincinnati. The Millennium is in the heart of downtown and is a short walk from streetcar stops and social events.

Getting Around

Union Hall is in Cincinnati’s Over-the-Rhine (OTR) neighborhood, which borders the north side of downtown. Downtown and OTR are connected by the Cincinnati streetcar. For Union Hall, use the 12th & Vine stop when coming from the south, and use the Washington Park stop when coming from the north. Tickets are available at all streetcar stops. The streetcar costs $1 for a two-hour pass, or just $2 for an all-day pass.

Use the Cincinnati Metro bus to visit other parts of Cincinnati, or the TANK bus to visit Northern Kentucky. Red Bike has bicycle rental locations spread around Cincinnati and Nothern Kentucky.

Cincinnati is served by the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG). Shuttles between the airport and downtown are available from Executive Transportation for $36 roundtrip.
