Nice bartenders- friendly and welcoming. Solid drinks, satisfying appetizers. It was a warm environment that was a welcome stop after checking into our room. A good place for a nightcap as well.

This bar is amazing...the view alone gets it 5 stars! The service is great. Try the fresh squeezed lemonade cocktail, or their Bloody Mary (it has a slider, fries, shrimp, etc...). Be sure to check out the very top bar, this is the best view in town (it kills 21c, you can see the river and most of downtown)! Glass... More

We really enjoy this rooftop spot in Cincinnati. It is a fun place for great drinks and appetizers. Lots of seating including outdoor couches and gas firepits. Great place to take in the views of Cincinnati!

Last evening, after attending an exhibit opening at the Taft Museum, we went to the Residence Inn about 1,000 feet west on 4th street. We have had drinks and bar food there, before, but never dinner. The place is so welcoming and relaxing and warm. We were with another couple who had never been in the building, and they were... More

We typically avoid the hotel bar/restaurants for dinner, but did not want to go back out after a long day. We decided to give it a try when we were staying at the Residence Inn it is housed in. We were very pleasantly surprised to find it was quite good. My husband had a slider sampler and said all were... More

This is a nice tucked away place in a hotel lobby, or outside, to do a little people watching and enjoy some drinks and apps after work. It's also good for a couple people or a small group. Their prices are a little nicer than a normal bar. $8 for wine and $8-$14 for apps. They have different drink specials... More

On the roof of one of the great Cinci Hotels, The Residence, it's a top shelf bar with a classic downtown Cinci view. It's rarely open to the public due to the constant bookings for private parties. If you are there when it's open, you have to check it out!

This bar is inside the Residence Inn on 4th Street. Small and quaint. Not the typical bar grub. We had the cheese and bread appetizer that was delicious. We also had the margherita flatbread. It too was excellent. Pleasant surprise.

he bar is located in the Residence Inn Cincinnati Downtown. It is full on the Saturday night we were there. This is the second time we have eaten a meal in the bar area. The bar has the typical pub grub so if you are staying at the Residence Inn and are looking for a dinner you might want to... More
