The Hi-Mark
    3229 Riverside Drive, East End
    Named in honor of the great flood that washed over Cincinnati in 1937, this bar keeps its patrons afloat with a selection of Vietnamese-inspired dishes. The bar pours a solid variety of beer, wine and spirits and there's plenty of seating inside and out. If you're hungry, try their pulled-pork bánh mì made with Eli's BBQ or chicken wings with gochujang sauce. Fries, salads and Lang Thang Chili, a Vietnamese style beef stew, are some local favorites.

Longfellow
    1233 Clay St., Over-the-Rhine
    Longfellow is the OTR version of a dive bar. Cool crafted cocktails include selections like the Spruce Goose, with barrel-aged gin, honey, lime, bitters and tonic. A fun pay-it-forward board menu allows you to buy drinks for friends, strangers and crushes. If you're hungry, try their Blue Collar Plate: various sliced charcuterie sandwiched in baguette with Dijon, pickled shallot and, optionally, anchovy (get it). Served with a 16 oz. beer and Grippo's chips.
