Enjoy Cocktail Hour in Cincinnati
Enjoy the downtown buzz on our new Happy Hour Tour! Join us on this two-hour progressive jaunt to three of downtown’s coolest bars and maybe even a rooftop view. Enjoy a variety of tastings from cocktails and wine to local craft beer if you like. Since we don’t want to just booze you up, small bites are provided too!
Our gathering spot is the beautiful Netherland Hilton, a charter member of Historic Hotels of America. Take in the splendor of Orchids at Palm Court, one of Ohio’s highest-rated restaurants. As you sip and savor, we share the fascinating history and the famous guests who have graced this breathtaking hotel.
As we stroll down the city streets, we’ll share the stories behind the architects and history of these magnificent buildings.
Our itinerary includes visits to historic hotels and top-notch restaurants. We like to change things up, so our stops vary from tour to tour.
Locations may include a local wine bar with an amazing variety of hand-selected wines or a multi-level bar located in a pre-Civil War building. We may visit a rooftop terrace perched atop a historic hotel, or an award-winning Italian restaurant or a lively Latin inspired restaurant by an award-winning chef.
But the most compelling reason to take a cocktail tour is to meet a few bartenders and learn their secrets. We’ll make sure to include that on this tour!
