One the best experiences available in OTR is to take the Queen City Underground Tour, available on the weekends. You should book online because they often sell out. They have a 1-hour and a 90-minute tour. You learn about the history of Over-the-Rhine, and you get to explore below the streets into one of the many old beer lagering caverns under our streets. You end up at the Moerlein Taproom where you can enjoy a snack, a meal, or a local craft beer. History, architecture, culture, story-telling... it's a great experience!

Cincinnati's historic suspension bridge is not only a city icon, it was the prototype for the more famous Brooklyn Bridge. John A. Roebling finished Cincinnati's bridge in 1866, and at the time, it was the longest suspension bridge in the world at 1,057 feet main span. Four years later the Brooklyn Bridge was started, and not completed until 1870. A great photo opportunity, and just a short walk across the bridge you'll find Roebling Point, in Covington, Kentucky with some nice places for food, coffee, a craft beer, or a nice cocktail. You'll walk past "The Ascent," the striking blue-white condo.

This striking condominium was designed by Daniel Libeskind, a world-renowned architect. Libeskind won the competition to be the master plan architect for the reconstruction of the World Trade Center site in Lower Manhattan. You can see The Ascent from across the river, but it's worth the walk over the Roebling Bridge, which takes you to the Roebling Point neighborhood of Covington, Kentucky. You'll find a nice cluster of places for coffee, drinks, and food.

I'll let them say it: "Vespa and espresso culture collides in Urbana Cafe from the walls to the espresso machine, from its relaxed environment to the energizing espresso offerings. The multi-level cafe offers the choice to observe passers-by and operation in the balcony-style bar on the 2nd floor, or watch the art of cooking and espresso making as it occurs in the open-floor design." Their cafe is a 5-block walk and their Vespa-mounted mobile espresso kiosk is often found at Findlay Market and at city events. They have a lovely dessert menu. Closed Mondays, but otherwise open early. Food menu is oriented toward light snacks and dessert.

Excellent barbeque! 11am - 9pm daily. They are mainly a take-out place, but there is a small amount of indoor seating, plus when Findlay Market is open, there are tables set up right outside in the open air Beer Garden. Festive atmosphere on a nice weekend afternoon! Hickory smoked ribs, pulled pork, smoked turkey, and smoked all-beef hot dogs, plus a nice assortment of sides. If you want Brisket, you need to go to Pontiac on Vine Street.

Drinks & Nightlife
Perhaps the best local beer in the city, in an amazing space - the former St. Paulus Kirche, originally a German Evangelical Protestant church, built in 1850. It is the second oldest church in the city, which nearly fell over in a storm in 2010, and has been beautifully restored as a craft beer hall. It has three bars on three levels: the upstairs choir loft, the main beer hall, and at street-level is Nellie's bar, which has a more intimate, neighborhood feel. The food is great, especially the tri-tip steak, which they age, rub, smoke, and char. Nellie's stays open late. They always have a diverse selection of craft beers, and their cocktails are excellent!

One of fastest growing craft brewers in America. The Rhinegeist taproom is a ten-minute walk, just past historic Findlay Market. If you've been downtown, it's also easy to hop on the streetcar, which takes you directly to Rhinegeist's doorstep. Not only do they have a diverse and delicious selection of craft beer and dry cider, they occupy the former bottling plant of the Kauffman Brewery, which did not survive prohibition. It's an enormous and lively space that can house events normally requiring out-door parks. No food service, but you can order take-in!

In just a few months, Queen City Radio has become the neighborhood hangout for Over the Rhine. This old auto garage has been transformed into a fun bar, with it's own food truck on site. The food is not fancy, but affordable and satisfying: burgers, chili dogs, fries, and boozy slushies. They have a great selection of craft beers and a full bar. On a cold day, there is a heated patio enclosure, and when the weather is nice, they have an enormous open-air deck that becomes quite festive. Dogs are welcome. A five-minute walk.

One of several great establishments owned and operated by Molly Wellmann, Cincinnati's most famous and iconic mixologist. Japp's is famous for its fresh, original cocktails. If you don't see anything on the menu, chat with one of their bartenders... tell them what you like... and they can whip up something amazing just for you. It's got a great decor, and often features live music, frequently jazz.

This is a unique atmosphere, as if you stepped into an old-time apothecary, or the potion shop in Diagon Alley (Harry Potter). They concoct fresh, unique cocktails in this particular apothecary! In a short amount of time, Sundry and Vice has earned a reputation for original, freshly-made, delicious mixed drinks. One block away!

This taproom is a local neighborhood gem. It is located in the former malt house for the old Kaufmann Brewery, which did not survive prohibition. It feels like a grotto, but it's above ground. There are many beers on tap -some not available anywhere else. Light food options like a sausage & cheese board, and soft Bavarian pretzels. It's a big space, set up like an old-fashioned German beer hall, with room for bean bags (in Cincinnati we call that "corn hole") and a pool table. They do brewery tours on the weekend. Open Wednesday - Sunday, starting at 4 pm on the weekdays, and Noon on the weekend. It can get busy, but is often pretty chill.

Entertainment & Activities
This is the cultural center of Over the Rhine. This manicured park features seasonal flowers and plantings, a sunny green, and a shady lawn. It features a large stage for bigger performances, plus a small gazebo for more intimate performances, and throughout the summer there is a variety of free entertainment. There's a great playground for kids, including a magnificent water fountain area for kids to play in when it's hot. At night the fountains light up with a changing colored display. And there's a very popular dog park. My favorite feature is the deck, with a nice bar and big deck chairs that provide a great view of everything.
