1. Comfort Station
    793 E. McMillan St., Walnut Hills
    ”This place is HARD to find!! Speakeasy vibes for sure! There's a blue door out front with the label 'women' above it, so I definitely wandered the street for a few minutes. However once inside, this place is adorable. Super comfortable seating with pillows, skylights and a large bar area. Unfortunately it was raining so I didn't make it outside, but next time! The drinks were all unique and delicious. I tried the summer white wine which was refreshing and had fruit! Definitely recommend visiting when in the Walnut Hills area!” — Deidre F.
