Hmm, when did they stop they state-owned thing? I didn't know they did.

Where can I confirm any large scale operations such as Jungle Jim's or Kroger have Ohio state licensed liquor sales?
Took me almost no searching at all.
Jungle Jim's International Market

I remember when I lived in NW Ohio there was a state liquor store in the Kroger located in Sidney.

Kroger's - Sidney, OH - Reviews - BeerAdvocate

Quote:
A large grocery store with lots of space for beer & wine. They have an enclosed wine cooler and a state liquor store inside
Also Wagner's IGA in Minster:

Wagner's IGA | Beer

Quote:
Wagner’s IGA is also a State Liquor Store!
Same was true with Howell's IGA in New Bremen, except they recently closed.

Obviously, IGAs are not really large scale in the way Jungle Jim's is, but the Sidney Kroger is a good example.

Ohio is not Illinois or other states where I know you can purchase liquor at the local Walgreen's. I am not doubting you (yes I am), just give me a source to confirm liquor sales in Ohio via large scale retail outlets. I just find it hard to accept as the high profit booze industry has had a monopoly here on liquor sales (particularly profits). The Kroger I go to sells a large volume of beer and vine and also handles watered-down booze. But straight liquor sales they do not have though I am sure they would leap on it if permitted.
kj.......the liquor stores in JJ's and Kroger are state liquor stores. You can jump on their websites and see that they have liquor stores....or better yet....drive over to Jungle's and pick up a bottle of hooch.

Well this has become a very interesting thread.

Does anyone have any advice/experience for living in the "warehouse district"? It seems to be located about 3 miles outside of downtown between Northside and Clifton. Good area? There seem to be some nice new lofts out that way.

Yeah, don't mind us; we tend to go off topic 10 or 12 times per thread. I learn a lot that way, though, whether I wanted to learn it or not.

Speaking of liquor and Kentucky, don't forget to hit up the Old Kentucky Bourbon Bar. It's in the Mainstrasse district in Covington.

I don't know what you mean by a Warehouse District between Northside and Clifton. The only thing I know of between Northside and Clifton is the Mill Creek. There are some old factories in Northside and Spring Grove Village. The only one I know of that has housing is the American Can Lofts in Northside.

Also, the only Warehouse District I know of (going by that name) is in Cleveland, not Cincy.

I don't know, I'm going by what Craigslist tells me... here is an example: Downtown 1BR/1-1/2Bath Loft Apt.

That's way too much money for that location. It's in the middle of nothing, adjacent to ghetto.

If it were cheap, I'd say probably it wouldn't be for me, but it has some redeeming qualities, as you can bike around easily and it's near a few bus lines. But at that price it's a hell-to-the-no-effing-way.

Also, "warehouse district" seems to be something they made up to market the place. But I guess it's not a misnomer, given where it is. It's between Camp Washington and the West End. You'd have to go through the entire length of Camp Washington up Spring Grove before you get to Northside.

I should point out that locations on maps are not necessarily what they seem, due to topography. For instance, to the east of that location is a ginormous hill. It looks like you're pretty close to the university, but you effectively are closer to places downtown. Though you can drive up there pretty quickly.

Looking at the website for that apartment building, I see this:

"Plans for the surrounding area, including the West End Comprehensive Plan, envision a "Loft District" that would turn vacant industrial properties into residential apartments mixed with commercial studio, office, and limited retail and commercial spaces."

So I guess there's some long-term plan to develop a residential district there. Frankly, I'm not holding my breath. Not that it won't happen, but certainly not in the next 5 years. The warehouse district appears to be an idea in the West End Comprehensive Plan. And it gives a luxury loft building something to say other than "West End", lol. Which would not be a selling point to basically anyone.

I'm probably only going to be in Cinci a max of two years so that seems like a reach. I never thought renting/finding an apartment would be so tough, majority are rented.
