Lost & Found OTR, a cocktail bar with a focus on funky local art, creative drinks and, now, an expanded food menu, has been closed to the public since Gov. Mike DeWine's order in mid-March. 

In the meantime, they've been offering carry-out cocktails, wine, beer and assorted low-proof spirits, plus soups, salads, sandwiches and full meals to go (or for delivery). 

But this favorite drinking and dancing destination has just announced they have set up a new patio utilizing part of 14th Street and some orange barricades.

The extension into the street is part of the city's novel solution — the Reignite Cincy: Temporary Outdoor Street Dining Program — that allows eateries and bars to expand their outdoor seating into public right of ways to accommodate social distancing.

Other establishments including Pontiac, Pepp & Dolores, Sacred Beast, Salazar and Maize have taken advantage of the program and extending dining into the street or sidewalk.
