Mount Adams is an eclectic area with many choices of bars and restaurants definitely something for everyone. Our favorite place for drinks is The Blind Lemon, you enter by going down a flight of hand carved stone steps sandwiched between two brick buildings and end up in a lovely courtyard with romantic seating. In the late fall there is usually... More

The old brick roads and the quaint bars and shops really show the old side of Cincinnati. At the top of Mt. Adams, you have a great view of the Ohio River. A fun place for both college students and adults.

This area has lots of nice restaurants, fun bars and venues but the parking in the area is terrible street parking with narrow streets and horribly narrow streets that are one way with little direction on how to get around.

Beautiful backdrop for a professional photo or a selfie. Lots of pretty ducks and geese to take photos of too. Great place to stroll around and enjoy a picnic. Parking is free, too.

Definitely check out this cool, chic urban neighborhood. There are amazing views of the city, neat funky restaurants and bars, historic churches, and a mish mosh of architectural styles. The Catholic church at the top of the Mt. Adams stairs is not only lovely but also the BEST place in town to watch city fireworks.

Whether you walk up the historic stairs of the church of immaculate conception or just walk around. The views of the ohio river , view the roof tops of cincinnati and experience history too. Great pubs, architecture and restaurants - parking is at a premium but just driving around up there is worth it

A nice thing to do while waiting for our family event on a Saturday. Took a cab from our hotel downtown. Really enjoyed walking up and down the hills and checking out the views. This seems more like just a neighborhood than a real tourist destination. No observation decks, and we actually walked to the parking lot of the old... More

It's a natural fit, when describing the magnificence of Cincinnati, to mention the charm of Mt. Adams that offers a diverse choice of restaurants, pubs & shopping that appeals to all age groups. The ambience of both inside & outside the Blind Lemon brings with it great music that remains a pleasant memory for all to recall & want to... More
