Nice bar, great drinks and very friendly service. Worth checking out for sure. Great location as well. Check this place out next time you’re out.

I've lived in Cincinnati for three years and this is hands down my favourite place for cocktails. The bar is in an old hairdressing salon, and has kept a number of the features. It is a beautiful place. Signature cocktails change every week (every day?),...More

We stopped in for a delicious drink by an awesome bartender and the sad thing is I have no idea what her name is. She is brunette and had lots of tattoos, and she killed it. We asked for her vodka specialty drink and she...More

This beautiful little bar is very trendy. If you are particular about your cocktails this is the place to go. They make all of their own mixers, they take pride in their menu. They have a quiet little outdoor patio to go on a lovely...More

This bar is in an old wig store and the place has been restored beautifully. Both bartenders were really friendly and fast. The drinks were great. The live music was really good but if you want to be able to have a conversation, sit in...More

This place have a pretty good rating but it was nothing special. When my friends and I visited last Saturday night, they had a band performing which was cool. But the bartender weren't friendly. I suggest you go to 16-Bit and have a better time.

So while on the pedal wagon we dropped in to this place without specials. They had no bloody Mary's or most beers. I ordered a beer and got a semi warm one. The bartender was rude and it wasn't even that crowded. Will not be...More

I’ve enjoyed Japp’s many times before, but last night (Dec 22, 2015) was not their best. Bartenders were rushed and not making drinks up to their normal standard, but most annoyingly, the bouncer (guy with the ear things) was hastily rushing people out the door....More
