About CityBeat

Cincinnati — Porkopolis, the Queen City, birthplace of goetta, the nation’s largest Oktoberfest, Jerry Springer — the city we love and the place we live, work and play.

CityBeat serves as a bastion of informed analysis, offering engaging, enlightening and entertaining writing and reporting from an award-wining staff of journalists, newshounds, critics and columnists. Our news team diligently works to uncover and analyze important issues facing the community, including politics, race, gender, human rights and quality of life issues, while our arts and culture sections offer a broad look at innovative projects and the individuals behind them. CityBeat’s writers bring their institutional knowledge of the city to bear on these issues and countless others — in witty, engaging and often irreverent style.

We have always encouraged readers to discover new aspects of Cincinnati — from rave-worthy restaurants and provocative theater to craft cocktail bars and modern attractions. This philosophy is reflected in our Events Division, which connects our audience with each other, with advertisers and with the community.

Alcove
400-1410 Vine St. in Over-the-Rhine
MadTree Brewing has opened a multi-level Over-the-Rhine bar, restaurant and event space called Alcove. MadTree describes Alcove's main bar and restaurant as containing "a large bar, light-filled lounges, dining areas and an intimate private dining room for small groups." The space also features a "lush outdoor patio space for lounging and dining." The food menu is focused on farm-to-table dishes created by chef Stephen Williams of Bouquet Restaurant and Spoon: Kitchen and Market. The drink menu features housemade cocktails — utilizing herbs grown in that aforementioned greenhouse — and MadTree’s own brews will be on tap at the three bars located throughout. From a design standpoint, Alcove is stuffed with live greenery from Urban Blooms in every corner, creating a secret-garden-like feeling with living feature walls. In the event loft on the third floor, there's even a massive chandelier made of ferns.
