Cincinnati’s oldest bar has officially been operating for 160 years, and of course, they have to celebrate.
Arnold’s Bar & Grill will be hosting an anniversary party Dec. 29.
To ring in the lucky 160, the first 50 people who walk into the bar on Dec. 29 will get a free commemorative T-shirt designed by local artist Rob Warnick. There will also be drink specials —$1.60 draft deers— and if you’re feeling peckish, $1.60 appetizers.
Cincinnati Bluegrass band Moonshine Drive will be performing from 6-8 p.m., so swing on by and celebrate one of Cincinnati’s true staples.In operation since 1861, Arnold’s has an infamous bathtub that was reportedly used to make bootleg gin during Prohibition. And another rumor that the building was once a whorehouse. There is even a rumor that this bar filled with spirits (as in alcohol) is full of spirits (as in dead people). Arnold’s Bar is located at 210 E. Eighth St. in Downtown. Find more information at arnoldsbarandgrill.com.
