Senate opens today in the Over-the-Rhine

Many Cincinnatians can now begin to understand the long journey that most candidates go through to get to Senate. The hotly anticipated new gastropub opens in the Gateway Quarter today and by all accounts it should live up to the high expectations that the Cincinnati community has set for it.

UrbanCincy was invited to a preview event earlier this week and while the food and drinks were only samples of what Senate promises to offer going forward, the glimpse we got at the atmosphere made the trip very worthwhile. With simple lines and candle light, the sense one gets when walking in the door is both comforting and sophisticated at the same time. All in all, the room is relatively small but very warm and welcoming, as are the large windows along Vine Street that will be opened in warmer months.

Senate joins Lavomatic in the ever-changing and growing Gateway Quarter district of the historic Over-the-Rhine neighborhood. Be sure to go down and check out what Senate has to offer this weekend…maybe even drop by on your way to the Shepard Fairey opening night party at the CAC.
