Arnold's is Cincy's oldest pub and it feels like it: nice'n cozy, with that worn-in, august feeling of a place just rife with history. Passing through that history at the actual bar brings you to a great open patio in the back that sometimes has blues bands.
Food is really good and the drinks are great, especially the mojito. Having one of those while sitting out on the patio, listening to blues, can't be beat. Esquire Magazine lists their “16 Best Bars in America,” and Arnold’s on Eighth Street in downtown Cincinnati is one of them!
