Best Replacement For Neon’s: Queen City Radio

Best Replacement For Neon’s

For several years, Neons Unplugged was the place to be for al fresco drinking in Over-the-Rhine, be you a Friday-night millennial or Sunday-afternoon old-timer watching the Bengals have their asses handed to them in the final moments of some meaningless game. Neighborhood residents and bar-goers were all broken up to hear they were closing their doors for good in 2016. Just in the nick of time, renovations were completed at a nearby defunct auto repair shop, and everyone’s favorite new (therapy-)dog-friendly beer garden and bar was born.Queen City Radio boasts beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces, its own food truck, fire pits and far superior restrooms. There’s no place we’d rather go any time of the week to imbibe while petting other people’s dogs.Queen City Radio, 222 W. 12th St., Over-the-Rhine, 513-381-0918, qcrbar.com.
