Best Themed Outdoor Patio: HomeMakers Outpost

This summer, Over-the-Rhine’s HomeMakers Bar opened a new outdoor pop-up on the corner of Jackson and 13th streets called HomeMakers Outpost to welcome guests back and celebrate the bar’s one-year-anniversary. The Outpost featured a vintage Airstream trailer, handcrafted cocktails inspired by the 1968 sci-fi cult classic Barbarella and tunes from Cincinnati Music Accelerator. Then in the fall, HomeMakers welcomed a different kind of bev bar on wheels via a collaboration with Fifty West’s WV beer bus. They started serving fall cocktails and comforting new menu additions themed around the season. And in the winter they installed decorated igloos and heaters.
