Best Place to Have A Positive Tequila Experience: La Ofrenda

Best Place to Have A Positive Tequila Experience

A lot of us have a “tequila” story. And if yours doesn’t end with you on the floor (or in jail), congrats, you’ve survived the worst aspects of the agave spirit. But the reason so many have a regretful tequila experience is because it’s associated with shots. La Ofrenda, Cincinnati’s new tequila bar, lends a different approach. Their 2-ounce pours are meant to be sipped and savored. And with over 130 varieties of tequila, mezcal and sotol, there’s a lot to be appreciated. The 1940s Mexican cinema-themed bar has channeled the spirit of Mexico from owner Jacob Trevino’s own childhood influences. Most importantly, the intention of La Ofrenda is to be a celebration of life, changing the narrative of bad tequila-driven nights one sip at a time.
