Will you serve food?

We offer a limited menu of food because we want to be able to put 100% of our effort toward producing delicious beverages for our guests.  Each month we will highlight different OTR resturants and also have a food truck in our courtyard for a variety of local eats from surrounding businesses that we feel pair well with our products. You can also feel free to bring in outside food to enjoy!

Are you kid friendly?

Yes; families are welcome.  Please feel free to bring the kiddos along!  We offer a friendly and open environment that is safe for kids to hang out in.  However after 9:00 PM, all guests must be 21+.

is the ATMOSPHERE More casual or formal?

We believe in the philosophy “look good, feel good,” so we hope our guests don’t show up shirtless or barefoot.  But with that said, feel free to visit us for a fancy date night on the town or just a casual beer with a buddy after work.  There isn’t a strict dress code.

We welcome pets in our outdoor courtyard but unfortunately cannot allow them into the inside space.

Do you allow Pets?

Yes; Free Wifi is available for all of our customers!

Is Wifi available for guests?

How does the tasting room work?


Along with the full-service bar, there is also a tasting room that seats guests and evokes the spirit of the Northern Row brand.  The space authentically embodies the character of Cincinnati’s deep brewing and distilling histories.  An effort has been made to showcase the enormous steel riveted columns and beams that have carried the heavy load since the building’s early years as a Lagering Icehouse.

As we are centrally located in Over the Rhine, Cincinnati (near Findlay Market) there are many different ways to access Northern Row.  We are conveniently located within walking distance of two public transportation stops.

  • Streetcar: We recommend taking the 100 train to the Brewery District stop!  This puts you at the corner of Elm and Henry Street.  Northern Row is located about 200 feet down Henry Street on the left.

  • Bus: It is possible to take the 21 or 64 bus route to reach Northern Row.  We are located at the Elm and Henry Stop on both of these routes.

  • Driving: Although we recommend other transportation options, driving/parking at Northern Row is a breeze.  We recommend getting off I-75 onto Findlay Street and turning left on Elm Street, where you will go one block up to Henry Street. Once you see the historic APEX building you know you have arrived!  Parking can be found on McMicken Ave.  Metered and lot parking are available!  As a note, we are one block west of Rhinegeist Brewery so this can be used as a reference point.
