Best New Tiki Bar with a River View: Kon-Tiki

Kon-Tiki at Newport on the Levee’s new outdoor drinking and dining hub Bridgeview Box Park is “inspired by the Sheraton-Gibson Hotel’s Cincinnati venture of the 1960s, the Kon-Tiki, by Steve Crane.” The drinkery transports visitors to an island getaway — with an Ohio River view — offering classic tropical mixes and tiki-style cocktails at their vibrant bar. Think Mai Tais or Kentucky Hurricanes.
