A charming neighborhood
Jun 2021
This is an historic and unique neighborhood. I always enjoy driving up there and walking around. There are two gorgeous churches to visit too.

Poor neighborhood
Jun 2021 • Couples
Mt Adams is a disappointing neighborhood. Sure there are views of Cincinnati and interesting turn of the century residential architecture to see. People expect interesting shops, cafes and restaurants in a true city neighborhood. Mt Adams has none of it. There are a couple of places littered around from bygone eras, but it’s really a desert. Enjoy your short visit, but there’s nothing to keep you here for very long. I would be frustrated if I lived there and expected a real neighborhood.

Mt. Adams is cozy
Nov 2019
Ate at Mt. Adams bar and grill - great neighborhood eatery. Ordered the black bean burger and Caesar salad with marinated chicken - both classics prepared with care. Sat in the back where the noise level is very low, casual seating, beautiful views, and excellent service. This is one of those comfort places where you feel like kicking off your shoes and lingering over a second cup of coffee or tea. Like home.

Could Not Find A Vantage Point
Oct 2019
I drove around on the way to the Art Museum but could not find a vantage point from where to see the views and take it all in. It is partly a residential area.

The BFF and I explored Mt. Adams after the art museum. A friend had told her about how it reminded her somewhat of SF and since that's where we met, we had to go see for ourselves!

It is a lovely locale with funky bars, hilly streets and a great view of the river. Blind Lemon was on our list of places to go and we stopped in to a couple of other places for rest and libations! Crowley's Pub had cheap drinks, Monks Cove had a great vibe! Were hoping for more shopping in the area, but hey, drinking works too!!!

My Old Stomping Grounds Back in the 60's
Sep 2019
Been about 20 + years since I came up here. Tonight was to visit some family before the fireworks - they have a great view. So to kill some time, I came up to the top of the hill to reminisce of all the things I used to do when I was a little kid. My Mom was the pharmacist at the old drug store, now a salon. My aunt used to live right across the street from the church. My Grandpa used to live on Celestial right below the old incline station. The old monastery is now a property management company. Fun place, and fun times. Now it appears to be an eclectic mix of night life, restaurants and very nice condos, houses, and apartments. And i would definitely like to come back up here again to take in some of the restaurants. Nice day trip up here.

Nice neighborhood, but difficult to navigate
Jul 2019 • Solo
This is a very nice neighborhood with excellent views of Downtown Cincinnati, the Ohio River, and Northern Kentucky. It's a bit difficult to drive around, with lots of steep, narrow, one-way streets. Google maps kept getting confused, so it's probably best to plan your route beforehand.

Finding parking is rather difficult, but I was able to find several spots near the lookout at Celestial and Hill Streets. From there, it's a quick walk to St. Gregory Street and the steps up to the Immaculata Church, where there is a really terrific view.

Amazing hilltop neighborhood
Dec 2018
Mt Adams is one of the most wonderful spots in the city. From Playhouse in the Park,and the Art Museum on one side and Mirror pond on the downward side leading to Eden Park with its amazing view of the river. In one 3 mile radius you have many things to do and experience. Krohn Conservatory, Playhouse in the Park, Art Museum, Church of the Immaculate Conception with the stairs up to Mt Adams that are prayed during Holy Week. Between 8,000 to 12,000 (Catholic) people attend the annual act of devotion, which begins at midnight on Holy Thursday and ends at midnight on Good Friday saying the "Hail Mary." When you are walking around in Mt Adams, aside from good bar food and other restaurants, you will find UDF for an ice cream to enjoy while walking around looking at the wonderful ways people have found to make incredible use of space!
