There are many reasons people overlook Cincinnati. But no one, and I do mean no one, can deny that the nightlife here is better than in most cities in the US. In fact, we’ve been named the second-best city in terms of what there is to do around here by the Apartment Blog. You might want to consider our suggestions and get out of your comfort zone for once. So, without further ado, here we go:
We have over 150 bars, 16 different breweries, 78 clubs, and several live entertainment businesses. The nightclubs are hot, with cocktails so creative you should probably not order them after you’ve had a few (it becomes hard to follow the ingredients), and the breweries have their own tours and serve some of the best beer America ever produced.
There are many places that offer vintage video games. I want to take a minute to talk about it for a second because I used to love playing these. There is a bar called 16-Bit Bar + Arcade. If you like olden games, you should consider checking it out. The games are free as long as you buy drinks and you can play games on systems like Nintendo, PlayStation, and Xbox. With that geeky thing out of the way, let’s examine a few cool places you can visit. Fair warning, this list is subjective.
Old Kentucky Bourbon Bar
Some of our neighbors have definitely rubbed off on us, so here we are. At the Old Kentucky Bourbon Bar, you can experience the real taste of the famous Kentucky bourbon in one of its 200+ varieties. There are also more than 400 different types of whiskey. You’ll find it in Convington.
Arnold’s Bar and Grill
Here is one of those places that (allegedly) simply said “Yeah, I don’t think so” to Prohibition. You can have a few drinks, taste the juiciest grilled meat, or go to the second floor of the building and find a bathtub that is believed to have been used for storing and making Gin.
Mount Adams Pavilion
With a name like this, you’d think that it is some upscale honeymoon suite for the filthy rich. Well, you wouldn’t have been too far off – this was a house in 1848 and it was turned into a party location with live music and fine DJs. You can dance the night away and occasionally take a break to enjoy the skyline.
This is another place where party animals can drink, dance, and relax all at the same time. This is not one of those clubs that play the same repetitive music over and over again, night after night for a mindless zombie crowd. Here, you will find themes to keep things fresh and some awesome staff.
