Yelp! Cincinnati holds first ever Bar Week

The local branch of the popular customer review site Yelp is giving Cincinnati yet another reason enjoy alcohol. From now through April 8th, 21 bars in the City of Cincinnati, greater Cincinnati, and Northern Kentucky are opening their doors and encouraging both new patrons and reliable regulars with ridiculously low drink prices. It’s Yelp Drinks!, Cincinnati’s first Bar Week.

From now through Sunday, April 10th, these establishments offer 3 happy hour priced drinks, all day until 9pm (the Cinderella hour according to Ohio state law.)

“This [Bar Week] is a special for everyone. You don’t need to be a “Yelper” (one who regularly uses the site) or say the word “Yelp” to get the deals, you just have to order the drink,” Alex Shebar, Yelp! City Manager for Cincinnati, explains. “The reason we established Bar Week was to get people to try out great local bars that they might not know about or haven’t had a reason to go into before, as well as keep regulars happy.”

Offerings run the gamut from crowd favorite Little Kings for $1.25 at Arnold’s in the 8th Street Design District, $3 Kentucky Bourbon Ale at Molly Malone’s in Covington, $0.50 jello shots at Arlin’s in Clifton, and $4 cocktails at Neon’s Unplugged in Over-the-Rhine, just to name a few. A complete list of the drink specials are available on the Yelp website.

Additionally, each day of Bar Week highlights one bar offering food in addition to the drink specials. Those who attend 3 or more food events will receive a T-shirt.
