Telephone books here are designed for Northern Kentucky. But, if you want to post the name of the place, maybe someone can find you a telephone number.

Dig that. Pete has cleaned it up and painted it, but as laundromats go, it's a dive.

It's a place that when you walk by your not sure if its open or if it closed 5 years ago. There isn't a sign, at least when I was still at UC and frequented the area there wasn't, no hours posted and I'm not sure I ever seen anyone inside.

There's a sign. St Clair Laundromat. The one over the laundrymat door may be newer, but the one at the corner store that says St Clair Laundry has been there since the earth cooled. It's open everyday, 7 days a week, and a lot of people around here use it.

Don't doubt it at all, my experience with it is in passing on my way to Murphy's so if they're not open late I'm not sure I'd have ever seen it open.

From Ravine street, go up the hill to Warner and make a right. Go over to Clifton and Warner. There is a corner store, go a little up Warner past the entrance to the apartment building and the laundromat is on the right. The corner store, apartment building entrance and laundromat are all in the same building. Murphys Pub is across the street on Clifton. Also, across the street from the corner store is a green, boarded up store front. The corner store owner just purchased that building and is going to build a Hookah Cafe there.

Ok, it all depends where on Ravine you are moving. The neighborhood along McMicken as it intersects with Ravine is rough. Lot of prostitutes and druggies/dealers. By the time you hit lower Klotter it starts improving dramatically and only gets better as you go up Ravine towards Warner. I live in the neighborhood, so please feel free to message me.
Thank you!

There's no phone number listed because land lines went out along with phone books.
Ravine St is fun to drive/bike/walk on, downhill. Uphill, not so much. Well worth seeing (advisably by daylight) is the WWII memorial at the corner of West McMicken Ave. It had fallen into disrepair but got nicely refurbished last year. That immediate area is known as Mohawk, at least to those of us long in the tooth enough to still use phone books and land lines.
Legend has it that more men from Mohawk, not to mention teenaged guys lying about their age, enlisted in the military during that war than from anyplace else. I suspect that came from percentage of the population or some such statistic. Point being - the neighborhood has never been all that fancy or well-off.
At some undefined stage of Ravine St's descent/climb, Mohawk phases into what's historically been referred to as Fairview Heights but of late is considered a section of "CUF" (Clifton/University/Fairview.) Dunno why they call it Fairview since some of the views are sweeping and far-reaching.
Here's one of my favorite YouTube videos about Cincinnati. You'll know the car is going up Ravine St when everything's suddenly not on flat land any more:
