A Cincinnati native who has lived in Kentucky for over 10 years, Andrea's heart belongs both in the Queen City and the Bluegrass State.

Downtown Cincinnati has changed and evolved so much over the years, but one thing has remained the same. You’ve always been able to find delicious food and a cold drink from a local establishment in many parts of the hub of our city. Of course, when the population of Cincinnati was mainly downtown, most eateries were also on these busy streets, along the canal, and near main attractions such as Music Hall and Washington Park.
Today, some of the best restaurants can once again be found downtown, and one modern favorite dining destination has actually been a popular spot for over 150 years. Washington Platform Saloon & Restaurant has had many lives, and this historic restaurant continues to be a favorite here in Cincinnati.
Washington Platform has been a popular gathering spot in Cincinnati for generations, and this classic saloon and restaurant isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Have you enjoyed the fried oysters and live music at this corner eatery? Share your experiences with us in the comments!
