This place was very popular on a Saturday night. It has a great 1920’s vibe in the décor. For a bar, there was plenty of seating which is always welcomed when you are in high heels. You can go here casual or business casual. The smoking area is tiny so beware if your group smokes a lot. Good place for casual drinks and conversations.

I recently went to Japp's for the first time and was absolutely thrilled I did so.
The atmosphere is different in comparison to the majority of the neighboring establishments in the area which is what I look for when traveling to a different city.
Great drink, and the music selection was superb.

Here is an other of my best off reviews. If you are into cocktails and especially very goof ones go to Japp's. All their staff are super expert "mixologists" and will male you the best cocktail ever. Please do me (and them) a favor and don' t ask for the standard stuff. Just tell them what you like and let them create. My advice is go early i.e. before 9pm so you get all the attention you deserve, the place gets crowded with kids i.e. 21 year olds later around 11pm. Enjoy, you wont regret it.
PS. They have a live jazz band friday from 6 to 8 it is great too!

This bar and connected dance hall are a unique retro spot in Cincinnati where a crowd of all ages can really have fun and have a lounge style cocktail evening or go next door for some retro dance music. The staff are talented and professional mixologists who can suggest a drink based on the mood and preference of drink you tell them. The decor is beautiful since it has retained the antique furniture from the original wig salon it used to be, like an old apothecary style. It is the new "in" place in over the Rhine district.

Walk into Japp's on a random wednesday for a cocktail and you might be surprised by this little public house. Dark-stained wooden columns with ornate light fixtures and a very large bar. If you want it, chances are they can make it. If you would like to relax, do not come here on a weekend past 8 o'clock; people file in for drinks, enjoyment and yes, dancing. Attached to the main barroom of Japp's is a much larger dance hall and a small outdoor patio. I do not believe they serve food. A personal favorite in the city of Cincinnati.
