“Great beer and wine bar with excellent food! The menu is small (charcutterie and small plates), but the vibe is great - they also have a lardery where you can buy meat & cheese as well as a pony-keg where you can design your own six pack to go. ”

“Mount Lookout takes its name from the landmark 1800s Cincinnati Observatory, which offers tours and stargazing nights. Ault Park features elaborate gardens, picnic shelters, and nature trails, while nearby Alms Park is known for dramatic views over the Little Miami and Ohio rivers.
