Hadn’t been to the theater in years since the days we frequently attended Children’s Theater production. Volunteered for Compassion at the Mann Family performance. Had forgotten what a gem this was. It was looking rather outdated and dark in the hallways but inside the seating...More

The Taft Theatre, which seats 2500 persons, was built in 1928 and has an attractive Art Deco interior. This was my first visit (to see the fabulous Joe Bonamassa and band) so I was unsure of what to expect. Our seats in the orchestra had...More

I found this to be a timeless theater which harkened back to an earlier time. The aesthetics were vibrant, the seating was comfortable, with great sound. There were several concessions locations and plenty of parking within walking distance.

As someone who isn't native to Cincinnati, but who goes there on occasion for special events, I only knew of the Music Hall and the Aronoff Center, having attended shows at both for years. The Taft Theater was a complete unknown until I purchased tickets...More

Seat rows are too close together, requiring knees to hit seat in front. Seat backs are too straight. Poor air conditioning. Size of venue is good.

Love this place! The building is very well kept and built during an era where quality and charm was the most important aspects. The acoustics were perfect and anywhere you sat you had a great view of the stage. The only thing I would change...More

Omg, the event was ever organized. The concerts was everything. The venue and staff was helpful, clean and on point.

I have been to 2 concerts here now. What a beautiful venue! Hate to say it, but the architecture can distract from the entertainer a bit and is really something to marvel at during intermission.

We were visiting from out of town and went to see a stand up comedian here. We stayed in a hotel downtown and the Taft Theater was easy to walk to. We were in the fourth row and our seats were great. Love the atmosphere...More

Hank Williams Jr. played there in '73. He was only one on show. Another show around that time was Tammy Wynette and George Jones together (no air at the time and ridiculously hot:)

Taft Theatre and Parkiing (6 Replies)
Hello, we plan on coming up to Cincinnati in March for the Alison Krauss concert. I've never been to Taft theater, so I'm not entirely sure how parking is around the area. Are there any parking garages nearby, or is it pretty much pay lots? Also, how are restaurants near the Taft?

Several restaurants nearby- mostly about four or five blocks away. Fountain Square has several different levels of options. Our favorite is Via Vite, an Italian place with all levels of food and dress. You can get pizzas, homemade pastas, or steak and veal chop. I can go and spend $30 per couple for a couple of flatbread pizzas or spend $100+ for nice meal and bottle of wine.- great wine list Rock Bottom is a pretty good brew pub with homemade beer and your typical pub fare.

Question about staying in Covington rather than downtown Cin (5 Replies)
I am going to be in Cincinnati in July for a couple of concerts in July at the Taft Theatre and at the Paul Brown Stadium. I shave a choice staying in a hotel in Covington KY using my points or paying for something downtown. I plan on using uber so do people here think there is much of a difference of distance or convenience between the two?

Fully agree with NatiDaddy. If on the riverfront area take the shuttle or stroll across the historic bridge. Covington in general has decent bus coverage with all buses going to downtown cincy along fourth st. I would asume taxis would often be at riverfront hotels as well.
