Cincinnati: Bars / Nightlife News

Recommended Posts

I continue to discover Cincinnati's ever growing club and bar scene.  2 nights and 2 visits to Cincy's Main Street.  I was well surprised.  There has been some negative hype about Cincinnati and nightlife and when you look at the list of cities that were ranked higher than Cincy, you know the managzine didn't do their homework.

 

Partied at Bar Cincinnati, Rythmn and Blues Cafe, Japp's and Red Cheetah last night.  Rob Base and DJ EJ Rock performed at Bar Cincinnati.  They performed their 2 big songs and had a nice thong contest.  :)

 

I think it is time Cincinnati's nightlife is exposed.

 

Red Cheetah is by far the hottest thing in Cincy right now although Club Clau is suppose to be up there but I have yet to check it out.

 

The following are pics of some of Cincy's Nightlife:

Been to a few of those, had some good times. I used to frequent Motions often, but that was when it was Oscar's.

 

BTW, which one of those chicks is your wife, monte?

I did not take the pictures. I have not been to all those places yet. They were taken from a website called http://www.cincyalist.com I wouldn't have a problem bringing my camera into a club except it sucks at night.

 

I went to Mr. Pitiful's and Jefferson Hall on Friday and Bar Cincinnati, Japp's, Rythmn and Blues Cafe and Red Cheetah on Saturday. Some of which the website didn't have pics available. I have been to Longworth's in Mt. Adams but it was during the day and not at night. They have great burgers. Also been by Mt. Lookout Lavern with ColDay but we didn't go in.

Now that I think about it, I need another one of those nights again. Funny most of those pics are blocked at my work now. cincyalist.com has been banned by websense :(

That's why you've got to set up you're own proxy at home like me :)

Clau's last night of existence is New Year's Eve (tonight). The owners have chosen to close on top.  Rumor has it they will be re-opening another club in 2005.

Clear the air

O2 Fresh oxygen bar gives patrons a little lift

GIL KAUFMAN ENQUIRER CONTRIBUTOR

 

Each day, you breathe in and out approximately 20,000 times without thinking much about it. So why would you pay money to be hooked up to a machine to breathe, in a mall? Because it might help that headache, or perk you up a bit, or maybe just make you slow down and take a few really deep breaths in the midst of a hectic day.

 

That's what sisters Stephanie and Laurie Marra hope. The business partners opened the O2 Fresh oxygen bar at Tower Place mall downtown, in 2004, after falling in love with the concept while visiting the West Coast a few years ago. What was originally a kiosk bumped up to a full storefront last year, offering not just hits of 92 percent pure oxygen - the air we normally breathe has about 20 percent oxygen - but also aromatherapy products and other holistic soaps, luxury bath items and oxygen-enhanced body sprays.

 

"Really, it was visually appealing at first, but it's good for you and a very pleasant experience," says Stephanie, who also helps costume the casts of visiting Broadway shows when she's not manning the space-age looking machines with her sister. "It's something you can do to give yourself a little lift that's not harmful for your body."

 

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports on the full story.

I paid like 10 bucks to use the one at the Levee but only because I wanted to talk to the hot blonde that worked at the kiosk. She gave me this liquid stuff to rub on the temple by my eyes, it had peppermint in it, I'm not sure what it was suppose to do but I missed and got it in my eyes and my eyes started burning really bad :(. I don't know if the oxygen made me high or not, I was too worried about my eyes at the moment.

Has anyone been to The Poison Room, located on the corner of 5th and Plum?  It used to be the Viper Room, and before that it was the Spy Club.  My husband and I plan on going there this weekend to see a band we like, and I was wondering how people usually dress there.  Or is it one of those things where it depends on what band is playing? 

 

I remember going to that location once when it was the Spy Club.  I felt slightly out of place because I wasn't wearing enough black clothing.  ;)

I know a guy that plays in a band there sometimes and I know a few people that go there. I'm pretty sure they mostly dress "punk" since that's the genre of music for most of the shows. Just remember that as long as you look comfortable in your surroundings, you'll never look out of place ;)

I was there recently to see a friend's band (not punk) and it was still a pretty rock n roll crowd.  We went straight there from dinner at Bella and we were definately overdressed, but I can fit in anywhere they are serving IC Light on tap  8-)

since i've been living in the city of cincinnati, everyone talks about the lack of nightlife downtown.  the banks is a perfect environment to have a mini wrigleyville.  I look forward to it

^Everyone complains that nothing is going on, jeez pick up a frickin city beat. There's plenty of nightlife. I guess downtown could be a little better.

Anyone been to Aqua on a night when they have a dj? It's not quite like the above clubs (dancing and girls trying to look like 3rd rate models) but it's a cool scene for sure.

It doesn't make a good atmosphere for deep conversation but I'd recommend checking it out. I went on a Wednesday at maybe 9:30ish. They have x amount (can't remember) off on sushi and martinis too.

Where is Aqua and do they have anything besides seafood? I have friends that love Sushi but I just don't like seafood in any form.
