You can now enjoy a boozy beverage to wash down your plethora of gourmet eats from the new Oakley Kitchen Food Hall. 

The dining hall's new bar The Cutaway officially opened on July 21, with owner of popular Over-the-Rhine bar Longfellow Mike Stankovich at the helm. 

A post made by Stankovich announcing the bar's opening explains that folks can look forward to a variety of beer, wine, "weird soda," sake, cider, digestifs and aperitifs, as well as "stuff you want, stuff you don't want, stuff you don’t have, stuff you’re glad you don’t have, stuff that’s good, stuff that you don’t like." 

Stankovich's post also makes clear the bar's intentions when it comes to providing a safe and enjoyable space for its guests. It's in line with the familiar sentiment at Longfellow: "Welcome all, except those who don’t welcome all.” 

Oakley Kitchen Food Hall opened over the summer, offering an opportunity for area chefs and food entrepreneurs to develop their ideas, skills and products even further.

The establishment features a joint-use space: eight kitchen pods featuring start-ups and ghost kitchens inhabit the first floor, along with Campfire Foods Commissary, The Cutaway bar and a marketplace that offers local products from both new and established local businesses.

Restaurants include La Petite Frite, Khana, Jimmie Lou's, Loakley, Parts & Labor, Onolicious Hi and Olive Tree.

Upstairs, Oakley Kitchen Food Hall features a 10,000 square-foot seating space/rentable event venue that can be used for food-centric parties, private events and weddings.

"We want our kitchen vendors to graduate to brick-and-mortar locations and our marketplace partners to land wholesale accounts with larger retail outlets," Marketing Director Drew Oxley says.

"We see the Campfire Foods Commissary being a flagship R&D location for new foods to be created and shared with the public. We are excited to create a space where Cincinnati can have a front row seat with new and innovative foods," he adds.
