It's not hard to find a bar or club in Cincinnati because of the sheer number and variety the city has to offer. There always plenty to do, particularly for the over-21 crowd, especially with Mount Adams and Newport on the Levee just a few miles away. These spots are ideal for barhopping because there are so many different types of bars close together.
For students who aren't into bars or aren't old enough, there are other nightlife options. Cincinnati has a lot of art, culture, and sporting events that students can get involved with. Try going to a Cincinnati Reds game. The baseball stadium overlooks the river, and it's beautiful at night. Even if you don't like baseball, go to experience the beautiful lights of the city. You can also check out one of downtown Cincinnati's restaurants—whether you're looking for five-star eats or fast food, there's something for everyone downtown. Visit an art exhibit at the Contemporary Art Center or go see an opera at the Aronoff Center. Students who are open-minded and want to try new things will love Cincinnati. It's a thriving city at night, and you don't have to be into bars and clubs to have a good time.
