Grabbing a drink in Cincinnati? Try one of these local favorites that are anything but ordinary!

Video Archive

Step into Video Archive and take a look around. The nostalgic video store is tiny, and filled with classics. The helpful cashier is filled with recommendations, too. Take his recommendation, and a secret door swings open, revealing the neon-lit, Quentin Tarantino-themed bar within. The eclectic atmosphere has nothing to hide, and you’ll soon find yourself enjoying the quirky vibe along with a killer cocktail. This one is definitely a place to bring your friends.

Myrtle’s Punch House

When was the last time you thought, I would kill for stiff bowl of punch right now? Probably not recently, if at all. However, Myrtle’s Punch House is here to change your perception of the old-timey concoction. Handcrafted punches are on tap at all times, and range from historic recipes to new approaches. The end result, though, is the same — strong, sweet, tempting flights of punches with flavor profiles so exotic and out of the ordinary, you’ll want to take some home.

The Overlook Lodge

The same minds behind Video Archive bring fans of The Shining a trip to the Overlook Lodge. With cocktails like Writer’s Block (bourbon and apple-berry sweet tea) and Danny’s Tricycle (gin, grapefruit, orange, simple syrup and egg white), you’ll be saying, “Here’s Johnny!” before you know it. They even have non-alcoholic drinks for your DD, like the Frostbite, a mixture of limeade and grape soda.

Sundry and Vice

Located in the historic and character-driven Over-the-Rhine neighborhood, Sundry and Vice boasts a cool exterior and an even cooler interior, with an apothecary-style design, given a modern twist. The house cocktails come with fun names like Spin the Bottle (bourbon, amaretto, lemon, ginger) and Truth or Dare (gin, plum, grapefruit bitters with a fortune cookie garnish).
