Ok .. I know I am rehashing these old threads but I can not help it haha. I remember all of these. Clifton had the strip with many many college bars and Mr. K's when it was pop music and new wave. I always think about the times of the mid 80s from Clifton to the night clubs in Cincy. Such amazing times. Several times a week at that! I really miss those days a lot. I also was fond of a night club out in Hamilton I think its name was Bonkers. was formerly known as the light house.

I remember the Glass Menagerie across the bridge. On Monday nights when every place else was slow we would go there for .25 cent drink night haha. Got wasted many a nights on a few bucks lol. Nothing is like it used to be and I wish I would have saved numbers and names of all the amazing people I met and hung out with. Since we never had cells or computers back then everything kinda faded away. I remember we met a group of 4 girls down there and every night we would head to cincy we would stay at their apartment nit far from Clifton. Made wonderful friends. Lisa, Shandy and two others I believe from the Mason area originally. So many cool people.

I spent a lot of time at the Glass. Larry (owner) was an acquaintance and I had a few VIP cards which we used to get around the line. We had cards for everyone and just swooped them up and left the losers outside waiting to get in - HAHA.

There was a bar tender who was a former Playboy Centerfold and on request showed the magazine to prove it. And, after a few drinks showed other proof.

I would say the biggest problem about my history with the Glass and the Conservatory and the Waterdump, Islands, and Lucy's, etc was transportation.

We had a great time there but it was really decadent and I had to make a lot of amends for the things that happened.

Rehash away - I enjoy reliving my misspent 20s. If I had back all the money I spent on concert tickets, bar cover charges, and beer, I could retire. But what else did we have to spend money on? No cable TV, no internet, no cell phones, no satellite radio ...

Stumbled on this forum by google accident. Looking for help on the name of bar in Cincinnati from back when we lived there many years ago.

Mid 70's, InCahoots and Zino's were on the corner of Upper Vine and Charlton. If you went down the hill towards the UC campus, there was a bar on the corner of Charlton and Glendora. Hang Over Easy is currently in that spot.

Can't remember the name of the bar. Someone said it might have been the Roundtable once. But in the 70's it was a bar with a different name. Maybe Alexander's? It had a frosted, etched skyline of a city (maybe Cincinnati) on either the window as you walked to the front door, or on a mirror over the bar.

Any ideas?

In the 1980's it was Chicago Joe's. It was a restaraunt and bar.

Mimi. You must have been out and about in the 70's. I remember a place you had to walk down a couple of stairs to get in but not the name. Chicago Joe's? 100%?

If by "out and about" in the 1970's you mean grade school...

My roommate was a waiter at Chicago Joe's in the later 1980's. It had the same entrance as Hangover Easy. Possibly a step down but pretty much street level. There was a bar around back, Myra's?, that was not connected.

I think it was The Holy Grail in the 1990's.

Those sound good for the 80's and 90's.
But I need the name in the mid to late 70's.

Driving a couple of us old people who use to go there crazy that we can't remember.

OK, how about Past Times Saloon or Faces?

There was the Matrix close by.

Had to be Past Times Saloon. There wouldn't have been room for anything else in that short block.
