I love going to 1215 Wine Bar and challenging myself to a wine flight! I love playing the guessing game to see how good I ACTUALLY am at wine tasting. I have learned a lot and enjoy my visit every time. Plus it has a great location near OTR restaurants... when you're waiting 1+ hours for your dinner... stop in!

Cincinnati would probably fall short on its dog friendliness but there are a few gems within the city that are ok with dogs. 1215 is one of them for being able to sit outside and have a drink. The server was so nice and let me order from the patio and even brought water for my best pal. I bring... More

I'm elated to the fact that my first 21st visit to a bar wasn't exactly at a "bar" most people think of when they hear the term. You know — the bars that reek of cigarette smoke, the dated game machines, obnoxious annoying cover band, and most beers on tap consist of domestic beers that taste awful. This place is... More

My date and I went into 1215 on a Saturday evening after we left Ensemble Theater. We were looking to have a quiet drink and explore a new place. On this unseasonably warm January night, customers were actually seated outside at a couple of tables, but we ventured inside to a relatively full room and found a small table near... More

great place to relax for those who remember the days of yuppies before hipsters came along. great drink selection, live jazz music, and an adult crowd (rarely crowded).

What drew me in was hearing the jazz band playing from the outside. It's a very quaint place with a good wine list. I didn't try any because I had to drive myself so I settled for a hot chocolate. Food options are typical of a wine shop, cheese and cold cuts, nuts, dessert; that kind of thing. I recommend... More

Ran into this wine bar while perusing through OTR over the weekend. Stopped in for coffee and snacks with friends. Highly recommend any of the coffee drinks, the peach tea, and the hummus plate. Hummus plate could have used a little more bread for the amount of hummus they give you, but it was delicious!

The coffee I had here was very good, but it was in the early afternoon and I can see that the focus was on wine, olives and hors d'oeuvre and when I ordered my coffee I got that "really?" look from the lady... I always find that annoying because coffee is always the premium beverage in my world. The ladies... More

We trekked down to attend the wine seminar and had called ahead -- they told us we could register on site for the seminar, but when we arrived this was not the case. We were turned away. Disappointing service...we didn't actually eat or drink there due to this experience. On the plus side, we enjoyed other spots in OTR that... More

Came here with colleagues from a conference I'm attending. Great small wine bar. There was a wonderful guitar player there this past Sat night. I only had wine, and there is a nice selection. But, I'd like to return and also order food. I liked the chill atmosphere.
