Inside The View at Shires' Garden, an Enchanting Downtown Rooftop Bar

The View at Shires' Garden, by Ignite Entertainment (owners behind Cincinnati favorites like Che, Butcher and Barrel, Lola's, The Birdcage and more), is located on the 10th floor of downtown's City Club Apartments. The 6,000 square-foot rooftop spot features an indoor dining room, an outdoor patio, two full bars, outdoor small and group dining and cocktail tables with impeccable views. The décor mixes modern furnishings with the style of the original Shires’ Gardens from the 19th century — a historic Queen City amusement resort of sorts in this same spot at Vine and Third streets.
