Inside the Ivy Lounge

Looking for a place to enjoy a cocktail before a show? Ivy Cincinnati has an inviting atmosphere that will get you in the perfect mood.

Do you want to taste something creative? Ivy’s Smoky Manhattan will have your taste buds humming.

Or maybe you’ve just had a really long day at the office? Ivy has your back with a delicious Old Fashioned that general manager Lainey Reedijk calls, “One of the best in the city. Simple, yet a classic.”

Ivy opened in March 2015. Reedijk describes the new space as “lively, elegant, and welcoming.” It certainly is. And because of its location, it’s the perfect place to go before a dinner at Jeff Ruby’s or Boca or late night for some dancing.

“Our happy hour is from 4-8 p.m. and provides specialty and signature cocktails for our business clients in a relaxing lounge environment,” says Reedijk. “On Fridays and Saturdays we provide bottle service and have DJ’s that play Top 40 and EDM-style music after 10 p.m.”

The location is a fabulous venue for private events as well.

“Ivy is a representation of LA sleek meets ultra-modern Chicago nightlife brought to the Midwest,” says Reedijk. “Exceptional customer service and a unique atmosphere is what sets Ivy apart. This is what Cincinnati is asking for.”
