Best Adults-Only Skate Night

21+ skate night at The Place Cincy

Ever since a handful of videos went viral on social media, roller skating seems to be everywhere. But long before the social media algorithm started highlighting skate videos, Cincinnati has been home to thousands of passionate skaters who have been keeping the community of eight wheels alive. For the grown-up crowd, The Place Cincy in Colerain Township offers two different nights: one for those 21 and up and one for those 30 and older. The Place is owned by Brian Liette, who had been hosting regular adult nights for the 21-and-up crowd, but when the pandemic forced capacity restrictions on indoor events, he saw the need for a second adult skate night. Now, dozens of skaters come each week to lace up their boots for a night on the floor, while DJs spin old-school R&B.
