Looking for a great view and lite bites?? Look no further....The Top of the Phelps has just what the doctor ordered after a long day at work for happy hour or just a relaxing afternoon/evening on the weekend!!

Who would have thought the most fun place to grab a drink in Cincinnati would be a hotel bar? The key is the great service you get from the best bar staff in the city. Tatiana, Sako, Sam & Jess are outstanding bartenders who create the most welcoming & charming atmosphere for the guests while making great drinks. Those four... More

This is a great place on the East side of downtown. The bartenders are awesome and are a big reason why I keep going back - a big thank you to Tatiana, Sako, Sam and Jess - you girls work so hard and make the Phelps a special place. I can't overlook the valets either, they are always so friendly... More

Nice bartenders- friendly and welcoming. Solid drinks, satisfying appetizers. It was a warm environment that was a welcome stop after checking into our room. A good place for a nightcap as well.

This bar is amazing...the view alone gets it 5 stars! The service is great. Try the fresh squeezed lemonade cocktail, or their Bloody Mary (it has a slider, fries, shrimp, etc...). Be sure to check out the very top bar, this is the best view in town (it kills 21c, you can see the river and most of downtown)! Glass... More

We really enjoy this rooftop spot in Cincinnati. It is a fun place for great drinks and appetizers. Lots of seating including outdoor couches and gas firepits. Great place to take in the views of Cincinnati!

Last evening, after attending an exhibit opening at the Taft Museum, we went to the Residence Inn about 1,000 feet west on 4th street. We have had drinks and bar food there, before, but never dinner. The place is so welcoming and relaxing and warm. We were with another couple who had never been in the building, and they were... More

We typically avoid the hotel bar/restaurants for dinner, but did not want to go back out after a long day. We decided to give it a try when we were staying at the Residence Inn it is housed in. We were very pleasantly surprised to find it was quite good. My husband had a slider sampler and said all were... More
